Gecko grip is Arundel's goofy name for a new style of bar tape made from cushy EVA foam and ventilated polyurethane in a laminated, layered construction with a strip of adhesive on the back. Gecko grip has a rubbery feel and is “grippy” compared to cork tape. It lays flat on the wrapped bars and has a slightly thinner feel than our cork tape. It doesn’t absorb sweat as easily as cork tape and can be wiped off with a wet rag in seconds. Gecko grip is now our favorite spring and summer tape. This stuff is awesome.
