Sew-on Leather Bar Wraps

  • The timeless feel of leather handlebar wraps greets you every time you ride with the Sew-On Bar Wraps.

    Blending the classic lengthwise style with a modern aesthetic, these bar wraps boast a clean look and outstanding handfeel. You'll find real leather has a terrific grip when wet.

    Like all our leather, these bar wraps will last you a lifetime. You can transfer them from bike to bike, handlebar to handlebar, and they will only get more beautiful with use and time. You get to keep the patina you've earned. Simply cut the stitching and re-install the same way you installed them the first time (replacement stitch kits and optional double-sided tape available in our Parts section.

    The Sew-On Wraps come as a kit that you sew on yourself with pre-punched stitching holes and a complete sewing kit to fit any drop bars, pursuit bars, bullhorns, or any various 1” diameter bars.

    The simple installation will be a point of pride as you roll through town and wear the wraps in with the natural oils in your hands. Arrive in style and comfort with Honey, Dark Brown, or Black colors chosen to match your leather saddle.

Good product but not for my application

The wrap will not fit a handlebar with one braking cable. I tried to stretch the leather wrap but only ended up tearing the sewing holes.

Just perfect.

Thank you for the nice personal handwritten note! I am excited just thinking about installing it on my favorite bike!

Quality product

Will class up any bike!


Bicycle Leather Bar Wraps - The "Sew-on Bar Wraps"

My only regret is waiting so long

In the decade or so in which I have biked on my Surly Steamroller (or my Happiness Engine, as I like to call it), I've gone through far too many rolls of bar tape. I never understood why wrapping handlebars in fussy cork origami was the only solution to protecting my hands.

After a couple of days of riding around with my newly installed sew-on wraps, my only complaint is that I wish that I had known about them sooner. Not only do my bars look better: they seem more comfortable, even though they offer less padding than does the standard cork wrap. Perhaps it is because my grip is surer on the bars: I don't have to work so hard to control the bars when I'm doing things like accelerating (which, on a fixed gear, usually involves standing and leaning forward over the bars).

I did spend some time deliberating over my purchase because I usually don't buy leather products. Have you considered making sew-on wraps in a synthetic leather?
