Our favourite on test is the Pro Digital Carbon Smart, ticking all the ideal bar tape boxes.

The Silicone material is strong enough not to tear and is supple enough to allow for easy application, while being easy to keep clean.

Pro says that having silicone gripper on the back rather than glue means it's reusable.
