  • Reduces hand discomfort and vibration
  • Excellent damping, maximum grip
  • Less fatigue, more riding fun and performance
Maximum gravel fun with no discomfort: Ergon has developed its handlebar tape BT Gravel specifically for this purpose. With its 3.5 mm thickness and aggressive, block patterned surface texture, shock and vibrations are absorbed, delivering the perfect grip and bike control on the most technically demanding terrain. This special bar tape for all gravel riders reduces pressure on the hands, feels good to the touch and provides a secure grip. The BT Gravel can can be wrapped to individual preferences – thinner/thicker or increased/decreased grip texture  – as wrap positioning guide marks are incorporated into the bar tape surface pattern.

  • GravelBike Schotterstrasse
    Grips very pleasantly, offers decent grip without feeling sticky. The three-layer construction with AirCell foam dampens effectively, but does not apply too thick and never feels spongy. Alexander Walz, Editorial Director: "I've only been riding the Gravel Bartape from Ergon for a few weeks, it has convinced me from day one: Grip and damping are top."

Reduces discomfort when graveling

A low, stretched riding position with a highly angled saddle, relatively hard contact points with localized pressure on the sensitive nerves of the hand and wrist often leads to pain when riding gravel. Ergon handlebar tapes reduce hand discomfort and nerve irritation. The variable thickness and special material structure with AirCell Foam damps vibrations and effectively distributes pressure on the hands.

BT Gravel Bartape reduces hand discomfort and nerve irritation.

Comfortable on any surface

With this 3.5 mm thick bar tape gravel riders benefit from the best vibration damping, extra grip and outstanding bar feel, yet the extra comfort is clearly noticeable. Increased control on the handlebars reduces hand and arm fatigue so you’re less tired on longer, technically demanding terrain. This handlebar tape simply feels good, increases fun and performance on any riding surface.

Under control at all times

The BT Gravel is not only the perfect connection between the hand and bike to the riding surface, the aggressive, block patterned surface texture of the handlebar tape is also extra slip-resistant, so the bike remains in control at all times and in all riding situations.

3 Layers for the perfect grip Non-slip, lightweight, less hand pressure

Ergon handlebar tapes is made of three precisely developed material layers. The water-repellent non-slip surface (Anti-Slip Comfort Top), the lightweight foam (AirCell Foam) and the adhesive tape on the underside all resulting in a secure grip, lasting surface durability and excellent pressure distribution with light overall weight.

Individual finde adjustment Integrated wrapping position marks makes it easy

With the incorporated wrapping position marks, the BT Gravel handlebar tape can be easily fine-tuned to your personal preference – wrap it a little thinner or a little thicker.

2 Directions More grip or more freedom of movement?

Dual directional surface. The wrapping direction determines your individual preference – for more grip or more freedom of movement.

Extra-Plus for more comfort Upgrade with the BT OrthoCell® Pad Set

For those that want even more comfort on gravel handlebars, Ergon has developed the 4-piece BT OrthoCell® Pad Set. The pads, made of orthopedic high-performance foam, are positioned under the handlebar tape to significantly increase comfort. The OrthoCell® high-end material, entirely developed in Germany, comforts hands and wrists in any grip position.

Extra length for gravel handlebars with flare 2.30 meters for wider bars and angled drops

The BT Gravel is 2.30 meters – longer than our other handlebar tapes. This means that wider handlebars with flared drops can be wrapped without problems.
