Anyone recognize this bar tape?

I've been doing some work on my Motobecane GR, including changing up the cockpit (new bars, stem, brake lever hoods), and I was wondering about the existing bar tape: I really like it, and would like to find the same (although in black). Does anybody recognize this stuff?

Looks like some Fizik stuff that I have. I can't find it anymore with the overlap built set in like that but I liked the stuff I had (I've reused). I think mine was Fizik Microtex (?) Bondcush Classic. Something like that.

Kind of looks like the Shimano Pro stuff too I'm using on my Cannondale.

Looks like Fizik Performance bar tape. I have it on my Ironman. It is one of the best bar tapes I have ever used. Love it.

https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00B63M7...aa_scomp_srsr1 is amazon's listing that most closely resembles what I think it is. Don't see it in Black currently on that link though.


Great stuff.

Still can't get used to the price... But good bar tape was never cheap...

Seconded. Absolutely Fizik Performance. Easy to wrap well and tight, great padding density, grips wet or dry and looks fantastic. Love the stuff.

unfortunately hard to find now since they seem to have discontinued it like knuckleheads.

This seems pretty likely. The Microtex Bondcush Classic is described as "Last Generation" on Amazon. I went with this:

Thanks everybody!

That's what I use now, the 2mm microfiber "Classic." It's usually shipped under $23 from eBay.

It's pretty easy to wrap over the white label showing on one side of the tape, except for the figure-8 I do around each lever. So I use a tiny amount of acetone to remove the one label there.
