Strengths:    spongey and comfortable

Weaknesses:    Carbon effect wears off and sticks to gloves hoods and anything you touch. (I have the silver version and the carbon effect is worn out after about 1 and a half months.)
Adhesive can only be used once. By this i mean if you stick it down and it's not right when you peel it back off the adhesive comes of the tape in gooey balls and can't be used again.

Bottom Line:   
Pretty poor Bar tape overall. Nice and spongey and thick which makes it very comfortable for long distance rides.
