Dead Mistral handlebar tape review

7 of the best bar tape: Deda
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The thin glue strip on the back isn't super tacky, but was a little easier than the Fizik to get a good wrap on the handlebars. For the money, it's a good budget option.

    Not the most comfortable on test

Looking very similar to the Fizik Superlight, the Deda Mistral handlebar tape comes at a fraction of the price but works in a very similar way.

It's similar to the Fizik, so wasn't the most comfortable on test and where you pay a little less for the Deda you get a little less refinement.
