Grips very pleasantly, offers decent grip without feeling sticky. The three-layer construction with AirCell foam dampens effectively, but does not apply too thick and never feels spongy. Alexander Walz, Editorial Director: "I've only been riding the Gravel Bartape from Ergon for a few weeks, it has convinced me from day one: Grip and damping are top."

A low, stretched riding position with a highly angled saddle, relatively hard contact points with localized pressure on the sensitive nerves of the hand and wrist often leads to pain when riding gravel. Ergon handlebar tapes reduce hand discomfort and nerve irritation. The variable thickness and special material structure with AirCell Foam damps vibrations and effectively distributes pressure on the hands.
With this 3.5 mm thick bar tape gravel riders benefit from the best vibration damping, extra grip and outstanding bar feel, yet the extra comfort is clearly noticeable. Increased control on the handlebars reduces hand and arm fatigue so you’re less tired on longer, technically demanding terrain. This handlebar tape simply feels good, increases fun and performance on any riding surface.
The BT Gravel is not only the perfect connection between the hand and bike to the riding surface, the aggressive, block patterned surface texture of the handlebar tape is also extra slip-resistant, so the bike remains in control at all times and in all riding situations.
Ergon handlebar tapes is made of three precisely developed material layers. The water-repellent non-slip surface (Anti-Slip Comfort Top), the lightweight foam (AirCell Foam) and the adhesive tape on the underside all resulting in a secure grip, lasting surface durability and excellent pressure distribution with light overall weight.
With the incorporated wrapping position marks, the BT Gravel handlebar tape can be easily fine-tuned to your personal preference – wrap it a little thinner or a little thicker.
Dual directional surface. The wrapping direction determines your individual preference – for more grip or more freedom of movement.
For those that want even more comfort on gravel handlebars, Ergon has developed the 4-piece BT OrthoCell® Pad Set. The pads, made of orthopedic high-performance foam, are positioned under the handlebar tape to significantly increase comfort. The OrthoCell® high-end material, entirely developed in Germany, comforts hands and wrists in any grip position.
The BT Gravel is 2.30 meters – longer than our other handlebar tapes. This means that wider handlebars with flared drops can be wrapped without problems.
