Anyone know what the difference is between the "buffed" and "standard" Fizik bar tape is? ... elID=27916

    Fairly sure the buffed is a soft touch suede like material, whereas the standard is a leatherlike finish.
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    Latest issue of the comic just beasted the buffed Fizik tape. Gave it 4/10. Said it didn't sit right, wasn't sticky enough to adhere to the bars and took loads of effort to keep clean.

    IMO the standard Fizik tape is awesome though.

    Great, thanks to both of you, have ordered dark grey standard to (hopefully) match my saddle (a Brooks Professional that I suspect the previous owner did a homemade greyification on) :D
