Jefe Velo MEGA XL Cushion Handlebar Tape - 4.8mm Thick and 245cm Long per Roll
We listen to our customers! Our product management team has developed the longest and thickest handlebar tape available on the U.S. market. Buy it now before we're sold out!!
Standard handlebar tapes are 2mm - 3mm in thickness and 200cm long. That's just enough tape for standard bars--if you're proficient at bar taping and the thickness is just OK if you're riding a smooth road surface.
But what if you have flared bars, gravel bars, or better yet, the new style of ultra wide drop bars like the Walmer? The standard length tapes just won't work - and if you try to "stretch it"--by going edge-to-edge with your taping, you lose all of the shock protection offered by the tape to begin with.
Jefe Velo MEGA XL tape is just what you need. Clocking in at 245cm per roll (two rolls included per pack), this tape is 23% longer than traditional tapes and the thickness (check the vernier pictures) is 4.8mm, which is 20% thicker than our 4mm ULTRA Cushion tape and 60% thicker than our 3mm ULTRA Grip tape.
MEGA XL is comprised of three layers. The top layer is made from Ethylene Polymer Acetate, a lightweight synthetic polymer known for its superior cushioning and excellent shock absorption properties. The second layer is a polyester jersey fabric layer that provides lateral pull strength to facilitate bar wrapping. The third layer is an adhesive layer that keeps the tape in place once it's wrapped. It has an easy to remove self adhesive strip--and no, this removable strip is not included in the thickness calculation!
Compare with big name comfort bar tapes—at a fraction of the price. Pack includes two rolls of MEGA XL that are each 245cm in length and 4.8mm in thickness with a self-stick center strip, two black plastic end caps, and finishing tape. 80g. Black.
