Handlebar tape serves as a critical contact point on the bike, and as such, deserves a little extra attention. The natural movement of your hands will slowly unwind tape if it not fitted properly leading to unruly cork and a messy looking bike.

Practise makes perfect and we'll provide each person with a handlebar and tape to practise on during the session.

  • Wrapping tape with logos ensuring consistency 
  • Figure of eight around the levers
  • Finishing tape ideas
