The Gripper is the lumberjack among handlebar tapes. A strong and relentless worker who can take a beating or two without getting upset for no reason. Someone who knows the magic of nature and deeply cares about it. Stylish without rubbing it into everybody's face. It's a friend you notice most when absent.
The Gripper wormholes the look and feel of vintage cloth handlebar tape right into the 21st century. It a timeless statement of style and a serious piece of equipment for all gravel-shredders and alley-bombers who secretly dream about the maximum grip that doesn't touch like the residuals of a badly-removed sticker. The not-so-secret ingredient is a TENCEL™ Modal fabric that feels rugged and safe while absorbing sweat and rain. You can worry less about grip and focus more on the ride.
The Gripper is your companion with Viking heritage and not a disposable item, making it the most planet-friendly handlebar tape on the market. It was designed in the Nordics and is woven in Sweden, where Grepp care much about keeping nature intact. Instead of the usual adhesive tape, it features natural rubber threads on the bottom side that keep it in place on your handlebars. The adhesive-free design increases the tape's life-cycle: Once it feels a bit tired, you can give it a nice spa treatment. Simply remove it residual-free, give it a ride in your washer at 40°C, and reuse. Plus Grepp invest much time and effort to ensure a traceable supply chain. Most of what's included in the package is produced in Europe.
Wrapping those ultra-wide, ultra-flared handlebars can be a real pita when a roll of conventional tape barely covers the drops. Trust us – we feel you. That's why Grepp include 3m of tape per roll.
