For years I loved Arundel Gecko tape, more recently Lizard
Skins. Now I have a new favourite, and it's Supacaz, a Californian
brand that has come to prominence as Peter Sagan uses it.
I took off the Fizik tape on the demo Cannondale. I love Fizik
saddles and shoes - but dislike the tape. Don't know why, but I

Most bar tapes give you a cheap plastic bar plug to bash into
the end of the handlebars, but Supacaz include their very neat Star
Plugs. They're made from aluminium with an expanding wedge inside.

Supacaz do a bewildering amount of colour options. There are
single colour, dual colour and even triple colour options.
Some of the colours are very funky - I can imagine the
Lamborghini Green tape could look very cool on a brushed Ti bike
A £30 indulgence that will make your bike feel special. You will
see a lot more of Supacaz on Bespoke builds going forward"
