This photo of denis Menchov's Geox Fuji shows him using grip tape on his saddle.

Does anyone know what type of Grip Tape this is? I'm guessing it's not skateboard Grip Tape as that would surely eat through shorts?

    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    I have seen this before.
    Just one thought - wont the grip tape wear out your shorts? This is probably OK if you are Denis Menchov and someone else pays for them. But would be a bit expensive for the rest of us.

    I have a saddle with a grippy top surface, A selle san marco Ponza, which does a pretty good job of holding me in place. Check out saddles in your LBS.
