At first glance, handlebars might seem like an afterthought. But we believe it’s the perfect start and arguably the most intimate connection between a human and their bicycle. The goal is individuality, all while building your tribe. Clout is one thing, but being authentic on and off the road is what matters most.

Our handlebar tape is meant to redefine the way we connect with our bike, without compromising its essential features. We selected the highest quality materials and worked with the best suppliers there is to ensure that our product exceeds the standards you are used to.
Installing our handlebar tape could not be any easier, thanks to the 3M adhesive at the back of the handlebar tape. Follow these 3 steps and you will be ready to ride with style within 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can have it done at your local shop for a few bucks.

We are two young professionals who share a passion for cycling and design. Maya is a sport nutritionist and triathlete living in Quebec City. Based in Montreal, Kevin comes from a business background and loves road cycling.
We are supported by a team of amazing people helping us in different areas of the project. Together, we spent countless hours over the past year to create these unique handlebar tape designs. We elaborated our own designs, looked for the best suppliers and also made new friends along the way.
And then there is you... We now need your help to spread the word, create more designs and make this project a living story. Merci !
Risks and challenges
We take this project very seriously. We have put our own money in this project and are very confident that you will have your new favorite bar tape on your bike within the expected timeline. Here is why:
1. Our product is already fully developed and has been manufactured in small lots by our selected suppliers;
2. Our final prototypes have already been tested in the field for a while, without any issue;
3. We only deal with long-established suppliers in which we have complete trust.
With regards to our initial four designs, the next steps will simply be to place orders with our suppliers, package the products and ship them to you. The main challenge is to make sure that we have enough volume to meet the minimum order quantities for all four designs.
If you purchase a custom tape, we will obviously work with you and the suppliers to complete the design you have in mind. Depending on the number of design iterations, there may be delays before you get your hands on your truly unique handlebar tape. Rest assured, you would only like it more.
One thing is sure: we commit to always keeping you in the loop and being transparent. Thanks for your trust and looking forward to seeing our bar tapes on your bike.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
