I really liked the bar tape my bike came with, but I don't know what kind it was. It has a distinctive texture and a sort of tacky feel to it. Would like to find the same bar tape again. My bike is a Raleigh Capri 2.0, purchased in July 2012.

The possibilities I've found that look similar are:

Avenir Textured Gel Tape

PRO Digital Carbon Tape

    Most likely its something generic that they get at the factory or if it is sold under a name brand, its likely Avenir. I'd take the tape into a shop and see if you can find something similar.

  • I don't have the tape anymore. I unwittingly threw it out last time I changed it.
