Description

The Gold Standard For Comfortable Barfeel

A true classic from one of the most renowned names in cycling, Cinelli's famous Gel Ribbon Handlebar Tape is still the preferred choice for many pro cyclists. Embellish your classic bike build or give your modern bike that old-school cool with Cinelli Gel Ribbon bar tape. Cork bar tape has a classic great feel and just the right amount of cushioning and grip. It offers a no-slip grip, with natural sweat absorption and insulative properties, to keep your hands on your bars with stable control, in any condition!

For certain riders, regular cork tape isn't enough. The Gel Cork tape includes a strip of shock-absorbing gel underneath the regular tape, for the ultimate in comfort. The tape still offers a no-slip grip, with natural sweat absorption and insulative properties to keep your hands on your bars with stable control, in any condition!

Formulated from a blend of natural cork, silicone gel and synthetic foam, the self-adhesive tape applies easily to your bars, and stays there. You can decide how much cushioning you want by stretching or relaxing the tape during wrapping. Each unit contains enough tape for one set of handlebars, as well as finishing tape and plastic end plugs embellished with the Cinelli logo. Available in a range of colors to match your style.

Features:

  • Gel Tape has a built-in gel strip for additional cushioning
  • The original self-adhesive cork bar tape
  • Natural/synthetic formulation
  • Includes ending tape and black plastic bar-end plugs

Grate replacement handle bar tape non-slip and soft, has been durable so-fare would have given it 5 stars but the end tape that came with it did not like to stay down it finally stopped coming up after some hot day rides and being persistent on forcing it down where I wanted it otherwise I like the tape

I've been using Cinelli tape on my bikes for decades. Thousands of miles a year. I practically have to force myself to change the tapes but I do it every fall.

As part of my annual bar tape and glove order it qualifies for free shipping. Ordering is easy and delivery is quick.

Pro: Soft gel affords good cushioning, as well as a firm grip.

Con: Trade-off for softer cushioning seems to be that it's somewhat more easily torn & damaged.

Great budget tape
rating
by Anonymous

I've been riding this tape for around 6 months and 3600miles and it still looks and preforms like it's new even after sliding 30' down the road it came out with only a minor abrasion on the drop but not bad enough to replace it.

My only gripe was it took a few days for the finishing tape to stop unwrapping itself but has since been rock solid

Latest replacement on my Giant Defy daily commuter (26 mile rt). Effectively takes the sting out of some of the rough roads in Seattle's SODO area. Have not used in wet weather yet, but if it performs well, this will be my standard tape moving forward.

I have been using gel cork bar tape for a number of years, and it's on all my bikes. Easy to install, and especially easy to reposition. Wraps tightly, and I have yet to have the tape tear during installation. The Cinelli tape is manufactured and sold under a specific patent number. I have used other brand tapes with the same patent number with the same results.

This tape is easy to install, looks great and really takes the edge of road buzz on your bike. Half the price of the "premium" tapes. Also comes in a variety of great colors. I have five bikes this stuff is on every one.

Purchased the tape to replace worn out tape on my wife's road bike. Then extra thickness makes her ride, according to her, a lot more enjoyable and the amount of road vibration is almost not noticable.

I was very happy I bought this product and not a more expensive one. This tape was easy to install, stretched enough to wrap it tightly, and also came with additional pieces to cover the opening around the brakes. I'm very pleased with this product.

The tape is easy to install and the tacky back allows you to unwrap and repositionthe tape for a professional finish. This is especially beneficial for us home mechanics who don't do this but once or twice a year. The feel of the tape once installed is great, just enough thickness, cushion, and grip. I have this tape on all of my drop bar bikes.

Looks great on the bike. Comfortable too.

Only one negative is the lack of instructions in the package. (There is a part that they add in which we couldn't figure out what to do with.)

Nice value, this tape applies nicely, plenty long enough when a bit of stretching tension is maintained as you wrap. I've got it on three of my bikes and they all turned out well. The cushioning profile is significant, and that is what I was after. Time will tell on the durability question.

I love both the feel and durability of this tape. Also I use white tape and my friends always wonder how it stays so white. The tape cleans easily number 1. And I keep my gloves clean, and can change a rear flat - putting the wheel back on WITHOUT cleaning the chain in the process - ha ha.
