    Super Comfy!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These tape kits are great, they come with everything you need to wrap that new build or that vintage Cannondale you (I) saved from the trash. The tape itself is wide and come with a sticky tape on the back that helps position it and keep it in place as you wrap the bars. No tape will survive a crash without tears but for general use, I've found it to be plenty durable and easy to clean. The kit comes with bar end caps as well as branded electrical tape for finishing off your wrap job cleanly. I suggest hitting the edge of the black tape with a little superglue for added durability. Match the color of your bike or get funky with the variety of colors offered. This is my go to tape for sure.

    Said it before, I'll say it again....

    Cinelli....'nuff said. Cork is a answer...plush, easy to install...lasts. Bought black 'cause the 'rule' is no white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day.

    Old Faithful

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had this tape on many bikes over the years. It's not fancy but it gets the job done. Being so affordable it's not a big deal to re-wrap it once or twice a season when it tears. It's decently cushy (the gel cork version is quite cushy), has a tape backing for easy install, and looks good on most bikes. These days I've on grippier Lizard Skins but I feel I'll find my way back to Cinelli cork one day.

    Smooth comfortable pillows

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The Cinelli cork tape is a solid bang for your buck when it comes to bar tape. Its cushy and comfortable, and the colors look great, too.

    Great Grip!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I put this bar tape on my Kona Paddy Wagon commuter and it works great! It's super plush and comfortable and I like the cork speckles in the color. Tons of sweet colors and I went with the yellow!

    Still the classic.

      Cinelli cork tape has been The Reference road bar tape since the early 90s. Why?

      Cinelli invented "cork" (cork/pu/foam) handlebar tape in ~1987. It quickly revolutionized handlebar tape. When I think we used to wrap our road bars in shiny hard plastic Bennoto tape -which provided essentially zero shock absorbtion- I shudder.

      Today... Cinelli cork tape still looks the best, comes in a large selection of cool looking colors, and works fantastically. It is soft, grippy, and shock-absorbing. It really does provide fantastic grip and control.

      ***In addition, Cinelli cork tape only costs $12-14/pkg. That value is unsurpassed in the cycling world.

      Yes, there are now scores of other cork/gel/pu bar tape choices. But none imho have surpassed Cinelli in function, feel, looks, and especially price.

      P.S. -If you ride really rough roads or have wrist pain or carpal tunnel, buy Cinelli "cork-gel" tape at $22/pkg (less on sale). It looks and feels the same, but features a base layer of silicon, and is even more shock absorbing.

      Lastly: I recommend using black electrical tape to finish your bars. It looks much cleaner than the supplied logo finishing tape.

      Great Grip

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've loved the feel of this while riding. My old grip didn't have much give, but this one is perfect. I used it during LoToJa and forgot it was on the handlebars, which is what you hope for. I bought grey and so far it's stayed somewhat clean too.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      In the beginning, there was Cinelli cork tape. Since then, there have been innumerable efforts to reinvent the simplest, most basic element of a bicycle. The only appropriate response to this epidemic of over-engineering is: Git'cher damn hands off'a my bar tape.
