From the toughest race venues alongside some of the worlds top pros, to a solo rider on a lonely gravel road, you can count on Fat Wrap to help protect your hands, while looking great on the bike! Since 1990, tens of thousands of riders have selected Fat Wrap as it combines a seamless one-piece feel with a great blend of cushioning and durability! Often emulated- but never equaled. The first, the best, the real deal.
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 not so much your hands feel like you are squeezing a sponge and loosing that all important road feel!
Fat Wrap is the original closed-cell, tough as nails, wraps up seamlessly bar tape! Since it's introduction over 25 years ago, our attention to details have kept Fat Wrap as the leader. Sampson's Fat Wrap is produced with a special cutter that tapers our edges perfectly so your bars have a one-piece feel. 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.
Fat Wrap is the perfect wrap for carbon bars, as it doesn't use any back side adhesive tape. 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 to hold on while you tape around your shifter clamps) as you quickly transform to a total pro look. Fat Wrap washes great -a little Dawn or other dish soap usually gets it looking like new in short order, making it even more economical to use.
If you are doing gravel riding or cobbles in Europe, here is another tip- wrap the tops 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 a improved feel for descending control!
Fat Wrap is avaialble in black, blue, red, white, yellow and purple.
