I just put them on my new handle bars and they have a good grip and are nice and squishy. My old handle bars were really wide and hard
I love how the foam is thick enough that it creates the perfect bumps and dips where your fingers fit in naturally. Sadly I crashed a few weeks in after getting the tape and tore it up. I replaced it with fizik performance tape but it doesn't feel as nice as the fyxation foam tape. It's more difficult to clean than the fizik tape but it's well worth it.
