Strengths:    cool retro leather look
easy to keep clean (white)

Weaknesses:    limited cushioning

Bottom Line:   
I used the white tape on my classic steel Colnago. The white version looks very cool with a retro leather look. It cleans up much easier than a cork tape and still looks OK after 3 seasons. It stands up to a lot of abuse. My only complaint is that is has less cushioning than a cork or silicone tape

Strengths:    The feel.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I ride in the Florida heat and prefer something to work without gloves. I used to packs of white tape to wrap heavy and up onto the flats of my FSA bars. These are comfortable, grippy (even at the end of the ride) and comfortable.

Strengths:    Best grip wet or dry.
Looks great.
Right amount of cushion.
Under $15

Weaknesses:    None that I can think of. One guy I talked to said it was hard to stretch?... I didn't think so.

Bottom Line:   
Great in all weather and the BEST in wet weather. On hot days there is no need for gloves. Sweaty palms don't stand a chance. Just the right amount of cushion( solid Medium). The stuff I have is black with white double stitching down the center, very sharp looking. Comes several different colors.

Strengths:    "grippy" - even in wet conditions

Weaknesses:    race lite version may be too thin.

Bottom Line:   
I've never been into the cork feel. Have been using this for a year and won't go back. Getting harder to find it seems, and although I havent tried the race lite version it seems questionably thin especially on a stiff bike.
