ESI Grips NEW RCT Wrap is perfect for Road, Cyclocross or Triathlon riders, especially riders looking for extra shock absorption and comfort compared to a normal bar tape. ESI RCT Wrap is constructed for a smooth overlay, and customizable thickness. If you are looking for a thick grip, wrap it looser. If you are looking for a thinner grip, wrap it tighter. It’s that easy!

Made from the same material as our mountain bike grips, our RCT Wrap is 100% silicone which makes it UV resistant, non-porous and washable. The best part: there are no glues! If you didn’t wrap it how you wanted it the first time, take it off and wrap it again.

    ESI RCT wrap is the only way to go. The ability to customize the thickness of the tape and be able to rewrap the bars is priceless! As a wrench for a team of 30, I truely appreciate the latter. Also being able to flip the tape over for a clean look in a pinch… amazing!

    I first got into cycling a few year ago and have since put thousands of miles on many different bike's. I was always frustrated with how quickly the grip tape would wear out! That was until i tried the RCT wrap. Since then I have put this product through many different torture tests on many different bikes. I can say without a doubt this product is THE BEST. Not only does it last much longer than any other brand, but it stays grippy in any conditions. I love the included silicon tape you use to finish off the wrap. Unlike other products these are easily washable. They stay looking fresh for as long as you clean them!. I HIGHLY recommend trying the RCT wrap.

    I was a LONGTIME Cinelli user, but started to open my eyes to some newer technology… 1st was Lizard Skins and though the wrap was fine, I quickly switched to RCT Wrap. It is GREAT to install and feels great to the touch. It has been perfect for long rides in the AZ Desert. Looking forward to thousands more miles on the RCT Wrap… and how great is it that there are so many colors to choose from to really dial in your bike color scheme.

    After years of using ESI chunky grips I was super stoked to see my favorite grips roll over for my Cyclocross and Road drops. No turning back now to infer for bar tape. Doesn't get tacky, slippery or dry out just stays perfect all season long. Using with or without gloves my hands are happy

    Super tacky, doesn't slip in the rain, and you can easily change the thickness. All a round the best tape on the market.

    ESI RCT wrap is my go too for drop bars.. Been using it since it came out. Hands don’t slip and it absorbs road shock so well. Everyone is trying to copy, but can’t come close. Love how it can be cleaned and flipped over when it gets too old.. Great if on a budget due to it’s long life. What else can I say about it.. Oh yeah, go buy it.
