Fat Wrap is the original, and still the best ! From the toughest races to a lonely gravel road, count on Fat Wrap to help protect your hands, while looking great on the bike! Fat Wrap absorbs vibrations, has a seamless one-piece feel, is great with carbon bars, and is tough as nails! Often emulated- even down to people stealing our name and logo ( shame on you ) but never equaled, Fat Wrap has been leading the pack for decades !
If durability, washability, ease of wrapping, and removal all count, then Fat Wrap is off the front before we even talk about it how it pads your bars with enough material to take off the road buzz, but keep you with great feedback and control.
Fat Wrap is the original closed-cell, tough as nails, smooth as a baby's butt handlebar tape! Since it's introduction over 20 years ago, our attention to details have kept Fat Wrap as the leader. Sampson's Fat Wrap is made using a special machine that tapers our edges perfectly,for a seamless feel out on the road. Our special closed cell polyurethane based material absorbs small vibrations while cushioning your hands. Fat Wrap's velvety feel gives you a great grip, without being so tacky that you can't slide your hands to different spots on the bars when you need a quick shift or pulling power.
With any handlebar, especially carbon, Fat Wrap is the perfect wrap as it doesn't use any back side adhesive tape. We have run Fat Wrap without any back side adhesive, after testing with 2 of the top pro squads at the time- Coors Light and Montgomery Subaru, and never looked back ! While this is nice for alloy bars, it gives Fat Wrap a huge advantage for carbon bars, eliminating the need for chemicals or scraping adhesive off the carbon- something you definitely want to avoid!
Each Fat Wrap package contains 2 rolls of bar tape, 2 end caps, 2 finishing tape strips, and 2 brake strips (with adhesive strips that go around your shifter clamps) so you quickly transform to a total pro look. Plus, Fat Wrap washes great -a little Dawn dish soap usually gets it looking like new! If you are doing gravel riding , here is another tip- wrap the top of your bars, from the hoods to the center section first, and then do a standard wrap over it. This lets you have amazing cushioning while riding on the tops, and keeps your drops with higher feel for descending control.
Fat Wrap is avaialble in black, blue, red, white, yellow and purple.
