This is a totally new product and we are quite sure you've never seen this before anywhere else. Our new Tenaci Gravel Handlebar covers are all you need to upgrade your handlebars. It'll make you experience your gravel adventure as you have never done before. They are designed to give as many pressure-relieved hand positions as possible and are exceptionally suitable for long days in the saddle.  

The concept is as follows: for cruising and higher cadence climbing the top part of the handlebar is often used, so you want a bar tape that's thinner, grippy and has a softer touch. But when you’re down in the drops for hard climbing and pushing through at a higher power output when the going gets tough, you want a rougher and even more grippy handlebar grip. This has led to our new Tenaci Bar Cover concept. This is a classic bar tape, combined with a unique bar cover that you slide over the end of your handlebars, up to the shifters. The cover not only offers the ultimate grip on your bike but also protects your handlebars against side impacts.

To offer the best grip, we took inspiration from the nature around us. Mother Nature sometimes throws the biggest challenges at our feet, but fortunately, also offers beautiful solutions.

The grooves in the 'Terra' pattern on the Tenaci Bar Cover makes you think of a dried-up river bed. The grooves clear the Bar Cover free from mud and other dirt that ends up on your handlebars during bad weather conditions. Just like the channels in our inspirational riverbed, which lead the water back to the river during heavy rainfall. This ensures perfect contact with your bike at all times and never losing control, optimized grip, no matter how bad the weather conditions are.

The Terra pattern isn’t the only thing that keeps your hands firmly on the handlebar. We’ve also taken a good look at finger positions. That’s why we’ve added ‘knuckleheads’ for extra grip. They will keep your hands in control of your handlebar and prevent sliding of the hands in rainy and muddy circumstances, should they present themselves.

The Ere Tenaci Bar Cover comes with a classic bar tape, based on the Explorator Bar Tape. For the supplied handlebar tape we use smooth line wrapping and a Single Sheet.

Smooth line wrap is used to reach a smooth finish. This 35mm wide tape with an elongated chamfer flange creates a smooth overlap. It has no bumps and feels like one continuous, smooth surface. 

Laminar Sheet handlebar tape is made with a fused PU & EVA foam layer that feels super soft and nice, especially if you ride without gloves. Due to the 3M adhesive, it can be applied smoothly.          

80D is the durometer of our handlebar tapes. This is the best durometer hardness for the pressure of the upper body applied through your arms and hands to the handlebar.

Ere Silicon

To ensure a durable and firm connection to the handlebar silicon rings are included. The rings will fit on any handlebar type and keep the bartape firmly in place. 

Our Ere Tenaci Bar Cover is one of those new little innovations that make sure every gravel ride is a ride you can enjoy.

Tenaci Gravel Bar Cover

Handlebar tape is one of the most important touch points between the rider and the bike. Control, safety, feel, comfort, maintentance. There are many aspects to consider when designing a tape.

We have designed a series of tapes to complement every riding style and condition. Our Genus tapes are race-proven and the choice for many riders that require direct contact with the handlebar.

The classic Omnia tape is made from a single layer EVA Foam that provides grip with the impression and feel of classis cork bar tape.

The Explorator tape series is durable and easy to clean with a very good grip to ensure maximum safety, also in wet and muddy conditions.

Smooth Line Wrap

All ere tapes come with 2.000mm length tapes, so you never have to worry about that last bit. These tapes fit any type of handlebar, even the biggest sizes and flared handlebar shapes.

Smooth Line Wrap is used to ensure a smooth line finish. Wrapping the handlebar with the 35mm tape, with elongated chamfer flange, creates a smooth overlap of the handlebar tape. The finished product will have no bumps and feel like a continuous surface.

Smooth Line Wrap improves the touch and the handling of the bike.
