Apologies for late reply - home Internet still down; easy day at work! 8)

It's a non-slip and slightly translucent vinyl tape that when applied in the usual overlap way, is solid in colour. Will certainly hide any scuffs on the bar!

If you like your bars to have a slim feel, almost like having no tape at all, this is the stuff. No padding; just a cool coloured covering. Favoured by Fignon, Hinault, Hampsten, Lemond, Kelly, Rooks, Mottet, etc. in the 1980s.

Looks like this once applied:-

Another B U M P for this.

BTW, it's 100% washable and unlike cloth or newer stuff, comes up shiny-new with a bit of soapy water. 8) Fit-and-forget stuff.
