    New Tape

    Has anyone tried the Zevlin Big 40 Synthetic Foam Tape?

    Out of curiosity I just did a quick search and found some reviews elsewhere. Sounds like it's actually different than other tapes (which I almost consider generic these days in three categories: foam, cork and "thin".... many brands doing pretty much the same thing). I'd be interested in trying it if I didn't already have about a 3 year stockpile of my favorite (and fairly generic!) Deda foam tape I found on sale a couple of years ago.

    I rode Fizik superlight microtex tape because I liked it riding without gloves. It's got a good non-slip texture. It's thin and not very stretchy when installing so takes some care. I since tried Williams foam tape and it works well for me gloved or gloveless. I don't like a lot of padding in gloves or bar tape. Have not tried Zevlin tapes.
    ... 'cuz that's how I roll.

    New Tape

    Off the OP subject a bit but speaking about feel riding gloveless, the one I prefer is leather over Fizik gel inserts. My second choice is double Lizzard or Fizik with gel inserts and gloves.
