Our natural leather "bullwhip" style braid makes a tactile, cushioning wrap that looks amazing and stays fast in place.
Durable in the elements, warm to the touch, and grippier when wet, our natural leather is a performance material with a lush look and outstanding handfeel.
Overlapping layers of high quality American leather provide more cushioning, and hand-finished edging assures it lays well. The signature, small diamond pattern visually complements the diameter of the bar.
Like our other bar wraps, the Bullwhip Bar Wraps come as a kit that you braid and stitch on yourself with pre-punched stitching holes, needle, thread, and instructions.
The natural oils in your hands burnish our high-quality American leather into a glossy patina that will last you a lifetime. You get to keep the patina you've earned: you can transfer it from bike to bike, and over the years it will only get more beautiful with use and time.
Fits ergo bars, flat-top bars, drop bars, pursuit bars, bullhorns, and more.

DIMENSIONS: An order of braided bar wraps comes with (2) specially-designed straps of leather for braiding on bar wraps - 1 for each side - with ample length to accommodate drop bars (approximately 20" / 51cm braided length per side). The actual length of the wraps is longer than that to accommodate for the braiding. The sew-on section is midway down the wraps and is designed to fit around a section of 1" (25.4mm) diameter bar, where it's stitched under the brake hoods. Leather weighs approximately 4.5oz (128g).
