Whether your aim is that of safety, pushing the buttons of good taste, or replicating Vini Fantini in any way possible, the Deda Elementi Fluorescent Bar Tape will achieve your objective. And aside from looks, this bar tape features the best that Deda has to offer. It's been constructed from its newest material, Mistral. This fabric is finely perforated and retains a 'skin-like' feel on the hands. So, a secure, non-abrasive level of grip is guaranteed, while your declaration of style will be undeniable.
The Deda Elementi Fluorescent Bar Tape is available in one size and in the colors Green, Orange, and Yellow.
Glowing is a bit of an understatement for the orange. Flouro on EPO? Hi-Vis on hi-test? In all honesty, it's just as all Deda tape is...pretty good. Plenty long enough, even for double wrapped tops, and big hooks.
As appearances go, it's insane.
When I wrapped the bars, I tried to get a picture to illustrate the color to some riding friends.
I used THREE different cameras. Two point and shoot, and our digital SLR. None took a shot worth a damn. The orange just KILLED the metering.
I guess I'm an early adopter in this town, as three of my ride partners have ordered it since seeing mine. Bandwagon jumpers...
Wish there was a hi-vis red, so I could throw it on the road bike too.
Between this tape, and my hi-vis socks, armwarmers, shoe covers, and helmet, I should be ok on the night rides.
If I get hit, they were trying...
I put this tape on my wife's commuter. Her bars now appear to be glowing.
