Coil Leather Bar Wraps (Bar Tape)

Choose a Color
Dark Brown

Intuitive to install, our Coil Leather Bar Wraps wrap around the handlebar like typical bar tape. But unlike typical bar tape, our high-quality full grain veg-tan leather is a high-performance material that is durable in the elements, warm to the touch, and gets grippier when wet.

Using the unique qualities of veg-tan leather, no sticky tape backing is required, allowing the natural leather to stay fast in place once installed, but able to be transferred from bicycle to bicycle over the years. It gets more beautiful with use and age, developing a rich patina for a lush look and outstanding handfeel. 

Like our other bar wraps, the Coil Leather Bar Wraps come as a kit that you install yourself on your handlebars. The simple coil tape design is flexible for any kind of handlebar dimensions: it can fit around H-bars, ovalized ergo bars, flat-top bars, moustache bars - plus anywhere else you might need a little wrap, including top tubes and chainstay guards.

I was getting a little tired of the drop bars on my Bantam, but didn't want to switch to upright bars just yet. I was hoping some leather wrap would rejuvenate the ride. And by gum, it sure did! I like the look and feel of the wrap. And I also like the fact that the wrap can be reused, vs. the cotton/synth stuff that you're lucky to get a couple years out of. Recommended.

Just gorgeous

Second set. Completes the bike.

Looks fantastic

It was a very simple job and I'm super-pleased with the results. Please note that I reverse-wrapped the bars, from the top backwards. This avoided the VERY unsightly black electrical tape. Soak the tape in a pan of water first. It stretches to comfort with the bars quite nicely. It then shrinks and tightens on the bars, and the start of the tape on the reverse wrap seems like it's not going ANYWHERE, so I'll be shocked it it gets look. One proviso on that though is that I only ride in dry weather. If you are caught in a rainstorm it's possible that it might get loose. But where I live in California we only get seasonal rain and I stay in during precipitation events. It tucked into the bar ends easily after some judicious trimming with scissors. I got the bullwhip braided version as well, but am not certain about my abilities at wind wrapping the top bar terminals by the stem.
