Basso's white tape is the lightest I've found, not shortened and including both tapeprotection on the back and plastic around:
My Deda perforated without plastic around are around 44-45g unshortened and the tapeprotection on.

1. Because it is so thin and incompressible, it was pretty uncomfortable. I ride with no gloves and felt a numbness in my wrists after 30 miles or so.
2. It gets slippery when a little wet. When it was hot out and my hands began sweating, I always worried about slipping off the bars.
Now I just run cork tape and replace it when it gets dirty. Way more comfortable and grippy even when wet.

Similar to the Fizik, but a suede-ish feel. I've got 2 of 3 bikes wrapped with it right now. The last is the Fizik. Tough stuff but slicker. I don't wear gloves when its not cold, so if you wear gloves, its fairly irrelevant how slick the tape is.
White bartape is nice but you can also see quickly that it gets dirty.
But what type bartape keep the white color longest and keeps to it washed.
Or should I just buy the cheapest white bartape and change it every 3-4 weeks?
What are your experiences?
