Great Tape

I bought this bar tape to add some color to one of my old steel bikes I was modernizing with new stem, bars, and shifters. This tape was easy to install and is very supple when riding. I did have to re-wrap the bars after a few weeks of riding (not because of the tape, but because of a brake cable issue). The tape did tear a little where the sticky stripe under the tape contacted the over lapped edge of the tape. Not a big deal but something to keep in mind.

Great bar tape.

The kit includes everything needed to re-tape your bars. It is on the thicker side, and I wrapped my bars on the tight side, making the build even thicker. I mostly ride on the hoods, so I'm usually experiencing the tape when on the drops. The padding is nice, and the grip, combined with my gloves, seems good. I appreciate the added bar width, making the bar easier to grasp and shift positions on while reducing some of the pressure on the hands. Overall a good product. No regrets.

Good quality bar tape that has been around the block, but is not out of style. Comes in a multitude of colors, and feels great to touch in any situation.

Classics never fail

Cinelli Cork is perfect for the classic road bike. Absorbs and is comfortable. The old school Paris-Roubaix racers used to double wrap the drop bars for the cobble stone sections (build by the romans) before gel gloves and 28c

tires. Saw the Paris-Roubaix in 2001 from the back seat of a FDJ car. Bought two rolls one for the caad7 on the trainer and the other for the new Cannondale Caad13 frame set I am building up for RAGBRAI 50TH ! Home made pie and a 500 miles week! Sweet!

Looks good not the stickiest

I tend to replace my tape often and this tape is relatively inexpensive and works well. There are some other brands that are stickier (both in terms of grip and the during installation) but this is fine.

Classic feel - great durability

Hard to beat classic Cinelli cork bar tape - it's easy to install, east to clean and lasts. I like it better than more synthetic variations for staying dry when its hot and I'm sweating.

Works Great. A perfect alternative to gel tape

Cinelli bar tape is my go to on all of my bikes. I ride rode and gravel. Not too bulky, with the perfect amount of grip. Gotten a little pricey in the last few years, but hey, what hasn't. Don't care for any bar tape with gel, so this is the perfect alternative for me.

The Only Tape I Use.

Since the 80s I started using Cinelli Cork Ribbon. Occasionally I try some different products but always go back to Cinelli. I always double wrap my bars so I am sure the good people of Cinelli love to have me for a customer. It works well wet and is super durable. It's light and looks good. There is enough stretch so that a neat wrap job is not difficult.

Can't go wrong with the original cork

I prefer the synthetic stuff now (Pro or Fizik), but for a classic look you'd be hard pressed to beat this.

Buy if you have that classic ride to match.
