It's a polyurethane leather skin that was $25 on ebay.

I figured if the made-in-China fitment was poor or if the quality doesn't withstand the test of time, it was only $25 and I can later cash out for a Redline Goods product.

But the fitment turned out to be perfect. The kit includes everything you need for installation and enough thread to stitch it together twice. You don't need to know how to sew to install this, you just need to know how to thread a needle and loop it underneath the preexisting stitches. Total install time took about an hour.

It goes over the stock leather wheel, so it's easily removable (if you don't use the tape) and it gives to overall wheel a slightly thicker grip.

We'll see how well it holds up to use, but I'm pleased so far.
They also offer different thread color options, different materials, and an optional center line.
