Nope. I use tennis racket overgrip for my aerobars, and with a normal amount of overlap, one tape will wrap about a 8" length of 7/8" bar-- I have to use two tapes for my Profile Designs Airstryke.

Beyond that, the padding isn't much-- the thicker stuff is ~2mm, and will probably cost more than just buying bar tape. Especially when you can get basic foam bar tape for like $3.
