Bullwhip Braided Leather Bar Wraps

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.

Beautiful but Tedious

My bike looks absolutely fantastic with this handlebar wrap, but just a word of warning if you end up having your local bike shop install these: Take stock of your inventory of patience as these are a pain to attach. It took two experienced bike mechanics who wrap bars very often over two hours to figure this wrap out and they ended up needing to have two people to do it. That is with the assistance of the video. Thankfully they only charged me two hours as opposed to the four but that's still an extra hundred bucks just to wrap the handlebars. I'm not looking forward to having to change the cable casing in the future =/ I love the look, and it feels great though and I'm looking forward to it aging. Hopefully I'll actually be able to reuse them in the future.

it overcomes in quality and color.

It's absolutely beautiful.

I loved everything about this purchase.

I loved everything about this purchase. I am supporting a lovely couple. It is home made. When I received the item the application was challenging, but it turned into a fun project. Once it was all said and done my bike looks amazing. I hope they keep doing what they doing


Really nice product -- some learning curve to the install but the videos are super helpful and the end result is worth the effort.

Beautiful product

At first when working with the wraps I was very confused on how to braiding pattern worked. The YouTube video was a life saver and I eventually figured it out. I'm just not the best with sewing and braiding anything. They turned out great and people are always blown away seeing it for the first time. Thanks guys.
