Help Identifying this bar tape?

I bought this bike used and really like the bar tape. Problem is I can not seem to find who makes it or where I might find some more of it. It has a feel of rubber and what may be an "O" or "Q" or some type of emblem stamped on it. Anyone recognize this tape from the photo?

That was my first search. But I came up with nothing that resembled it.

Looks to me like the logo for Oval, which comes on Fuji bikes. Not sure if its a subset of Fuji or the Performance Bike shop.

Look up Oval 700 grip bar tape. The logo is identical but the texture is a bit different.

I do agree the Oval 700 is similar. I may give it a try. I bought the bike off Craigslist and have lost his contact info or I would ask the past owner. The bike is a 2019 Trek Madone disc. It has Bontrager bar end plugs but it is not Bontrager tape according to internet searches and the local Trek dealer.

You want it with the O or just the same tape/texture? A few brands have a similar knurled texture.

Cannondale has (or had) some but without any logos, it came stock on my Synapse, it was pretty nice feeling (I usually don't wear gloves), good grip dry or wet...

Fabric has a tape called Fabric Knurl that looks similar, Arundel has the Rubber Gecko...

Also similar is Velox High Grip bar tape.

Thanks guys for all the help. I definitely don't care about the "O" being on there. The examples given above seem to fit the bill nicely. Thanks for the help. I will try the Arundel Rubber Gecko when it comes time to redo the bar tape.

I think [Shimano] PRO might have a bar tape that is very similar... google search "Pro digital carbon bar tape"

Shimano no longer makes the "Digital Carbon" tape, but Surfas makes (or is would say has it made) and identical tape called BGTT Ulta Grip.

While we have established that is not the prologo "logo", their one touch tape looks identical in texture and feels as you describe.
