    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.

      Excellent tape

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The Cinelli is as good as any and usually cheaper to boot. The colors are vibrant and grip is good wet or dry. Doesn't hurt to have a stock of tape in your garage or shop.

      Fine Quality

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I like this tape, but I prefer the gel cinelli better. I'm not changing it until it wears out as there is nothing really wrong with this, but for a bit more squish, go with gel.
