Listed as just 2mm thick, Fizik’s Superlight bar tape is made from MicroTex and manages to combine being incredibly thin with enough flexibility to give a good fit.
Unlike a few other lightweight alternatives, it doesn’t feel like you’re going to snap it while fitting, which in turn means you can get enough force to make those crucial corners without leaving edges that pick up or snag.

With 27 different options — most of which match the company’s saddles — there should be something for everyone.
A thinner tape you’ll struggle to find and from our experience it’s possible to get a very tidy finish.
The white without logo version offers plenty of friction for decent grip with gloves but if you prefer your summer rides glove-free, you may want to think twice as this tape really isn’t too kind to bare skin.
