Taking a small but significant pedal stroke in favor of modern demands, Cinelli maintains its time-honored aesthetic while adding a thin layer of Vibrasoft gel to boost shock absorption and maintain better control and feel on rougher pavement. Although Cinelli has remained somewhat synonymous with classic, on-road, drop-bar bikes, the inclusion of gel offers the traditional gravel grinder a comfortable chance to experience Cinelli tape tradition.

Great application experience!
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this tape because of an exhaustive search that didn't yield fruit for the Specialized S-wrap Roubaix, which would have gone great on my 2022 Roubaix, but anyhoo. I finally got around to applying this tape today and my initial impression was that I was sold some old merch since the adhesive, or at least the sticky part in the middle of the roll, wasn't very sticky. After consulting a video to refresh my mind for the install, I got to work. Immediately found this tape to be extremely easy to work with and so great to stretch and make work. Best part is the lack of stickiness is a bonus, because if you mess up, just unravel and do it again, just don't mess up the final cut at the top of your bars, like I kinda did. Once finished, the tape looks great, a little understated, feels good in the hands, and reasonably comfortable. Haven't taken a ride yet, but I know this tape is going to serve me well. Even the cheap seeming end plug went in and stayed in nice and tight. Great buy, just wish there were a larger variety of colors to choose from.

Great Bar Tape
- I've put it through the wringer
Great Value, especially for the price. Tape is supple and has a "foamy" feel. It holds up and the colors are great.
