Great looking bar tape for a classic look! It is a good alternative to the Brooks super expensive leather bar tape if you are looking for a classic look to go with your leather saddle. Looks especially good with the Honey colored Brooks saddles.
Very easy to put on - could undo & re-wrap a couple of times to get it just right. Nicely padded and grips well. I went for the white tape & whist it does get dirty, it wipes clean very easily.
Also grips well in the rain.
The plugs aren't the best fit, but that's a minor gripe.
Good value for money.
ps- i forgot to mention the cinelli logo is nowhere on the tape so it will therefore be plain colour you order.
I replaced my bar tape last night and went for a ride the following morning. VERY comfortable for me. I liked the "puffyness" of it compared to other tapes i have used (i like to grip tight when riding up hill and feel my hands dig into something to help with the pain!). It was slightly trickier to insert plugs due to the puffyness but it is manageable.
Tape- when i woke up the bar tape was peeling off (i was very careful not to get fingerprints on it too). Also, the small grip strips used around the gear levers peels off if you hang around while wrapping the grip. Be quick and use electrical tape or some other brand to finish it.
The plugs arnt too special (plain black plastic) and could be improved- actually they look very cheap.
Note: the grip tape doesnt have adhesive on the reverse side so wrapping can be tricky if you dont keep it tight while your going.
Overall id try something new based on the better plugs and poor tape, however, i would revert to this as if others similarly fell short.
