Strengths:    Seems like it is going to last for a long time, grippy, cushy, comes with great finishing tape.

Weaknesses:    Get's dirty, but really, who cares.

Bottom Line:   
I love this tape. It is super grippy whether wet or dry; with or without gloves. I find that it is nice and cushy without being too bulky. The tape installs nicely. It wasn't hard to get it around tight bends and it didn't bunch up. It's not too stiff or too stretchy. It's just right. And a little thing that I really like is that is comes with really nice finishing tape. I know could just use e-tape or whatever, but the finishing tape that it comes with is wide and stretchy.

Strengths:    Cushioning; Damping; Appearance; Tightness of application

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Had black put on a new build of mine. Love it ! Cushiness is fantastic, and the road feel is great as it tends to add a bit of a "damping" factor in that there is less vibration to your hands.

Strengths:    Cushy, grippy, feels great!

Weaknesses:    Can't clean it. White looks crappy in a hurry. Saw it in green, too - shop owner's bike - and that, too was grimy. I thought I'd do a better job of keeping mine looking nice. Can't, impossible.

Bottom Line:   
Product looks and feels great newly intalled, very cushy, grippy, loved it - first impression! However, cleaning instructions from manufacturer are to use only water or Isopropyl alcohol. Neither are effective. Do not buy white. It gets grimy quickly, and simply does not clean well. Disappointing! Buy black or perhaps another color, you'll probably love it. But it's pricey and the white is disappointing! Due to the grime factor alone I will not buy again.
