    Just installed the 2.5mm bar phat with some SWrap Roubaix tape and it feels awesome... just the right amount of cushion and doesn't really add any thickness to the bar.

    Comments:

    After trying Fizik's bar cushion and being disappointed, I decided to give these gels cushions a try. I got the thicker of the two sizes and I can tell an immediate improvement in the comfort of the handlebars. The gels not only absorb shocks and vibration but also make the handlebars thicker which makes it more comfortable to grip the bars and distributes the weight of your upper body onto a larger surface area. I liked it so much I got a second pair for my second bike.

    Comments:

    On rides longer than 20 miles or so, I found my hands getting uncomfortable and even numb... gloves didn't help. Installed this kit and am so much more comfortable on the bike now. The 4.5mm kit is squishy enough to stay comfortable for hours of riding and really soaks up the road noise, but isn't so thick you lose steering feel. Installation is tricky but not impossible, even for a novice like me who has never done tape before. The adhesive on the gel pads is worthless, I wound up using double sided tape to hold it on while I wrapped it and this worked very well. The cork tape has a great feel: non slip and grippy, but not sticky like some of the plastic tape. Stays well in the hand even when sweating heavily. Cannot praise this product enough!
