About the manufacturer:
At Planet Bike we dream about bikes. We dream about people riding bikes: riding to work, riding to school, riding bikes to the grocery store, concerts, sporting events, coffee shops and grandma’s house, too. We also dream about the day when all cities and towns are safe and convenient places for cyclists.
The reasons that we love riding and want others to share the love are as numerous as our pedal strokes. The sport of cycling thrills us; but, for us it’s equally thrilling to unlock the potential of the bicycle as a simple and efficient means of transportation. Riding in place of driving reduces air and noise pollution. It boosts endorphins and clears the head. Riding strengthens the cardiovascular system, gives you good strong legs, and burns extra calories, to boot. Besides all that, it’s a whole heck of a lot of fun.
Planet Bike was born from the heart of cyclists and our goal is to create innovative products that make it easier and safer for people to ride bicycles. The products we design are rooted in this dream. Riding through day, night, heat, cold, rain and snow helps us come up with products that make sense, work, and are practical.

The handlebar tape feels great while riding and provides optimal comfort and grip. Definitely one of my favorite handlebar tapes and I will buy again once this one wears out. One thing to note is that the back is NOT adhesive. Personally I like that…
Green Giant I love the color and feel of this bar tape so Iâm giving it 4 stars. But the tape is too short for aero bars that is why itâs not getting 5 stars.I looked at tape from another vendor that was listed as extra long, but the Blue available was too light for my bike. This blue is perfect for my Specialized Roubaix SL4. It matches the blue in the bike great.I like the padding the tape gives. I did reuse the Specialized gel strips from my factory bars as well.The tape does start to…
