DiPell Leather Tape
>DiPell make high-quality leather bar tape.
All their tape is unseamed – each tape is made from one continuous piece of leather. Some other leather bar tapes are stitched together somewhere along their length, and if the stitching falls at an acute bend in the bars then you’re in trouble.
Their tape is asymmetrically chamfered with a long shallow chamfer on one side. This means that when you are wrapping the tape on your bars you never get two full-thickness layers on top of each other. This eliminates the lumpy finish some leather tape has once it’s on the bars.
There are 2 different thicknesses of tape available, both thinner than most leather tapes. This gives it a little spring and means that you can draw it tight while wrapping around corners to get even tension on the tape. This will help to stop it unraveling over time and with use.
It is available in 2 lengths – one long enough to wrap drop bars, and one long enough to wrap the grip area on swept-back bars, or other similar bars.
Their range of colours is designed to match leather saddles (as well as a red, a white and a blue tape), it is naturally long-wearing like any good leather, and it has the classic look of leather tape.
