Great Grip
rating
by Golfwheels
Daily Commuter
Chicago, IL

This grip works great in all weather conditions. I commute year round in the Chicago area so I see a lot of varied weather conditions, from cold to wet and this grip provides a solid connection all the time and gives great vibration dampening. I replaced my old grips to try to match the color of my Brooks saddle and this worked well. I've probably got 600 miles on them so far and they seem durable.

Cushy, but not fragile, or too fat. Easy to re-wrap, and cleans up well. Really good tape.
rating
by Rico

The Salsa Gel Cork tape has everything I want, and nothing I don't. It wraps easily enough, and is sufficiently robust to allow a firm tug during installation. There's no adhesive on the back, so re-wraps are easy, if you change levers or bars. I've found that this tape is not slick when wet, and it will clean up well, after a muddy ride. This is not a fragile tape, and it will take some light abuse with no issue. The gel does it's job of reducing vibration, but it's a subtle improvement. If you want tons of cush, a 2nd wrap is warranted. Overall, a really fine bar tape, and an excellent value, especially at the typically-reduced WBW price.

Very good quality and good value. It seems a bit thick to my liking as I was replacing some original thin Giant tape. Going to switch back to thinner tape, but this is a high-quality product. Just be aware it is on the thicker side.

How I lived before I found this tape, I do not remember. I know I did not live well. The comfort is only surpassed by the visual statement. It so compliments my Moscow Mug Surly Crosscheck. All of the other riders think I am mighty grand.

Salsa is a great priced, good quality bar tape. It lasts quite a while, stretches nicely for easy bar wrapping, and looks sharp. I like the feel on my touring bike (also used for around town) as it is really comfy with nice padding. I live in the PNW, so rain is a consideration - and it is comparable to other cork tapes when wet.

Awesome Tape

Orange really sticks out and matches the accents on my bike! Wrap is forgiving allow multiple wrap attempts to get it right. Tape is lightweight & thick cushioned which kills bumpy road chatter, no need for overwrapping bars with this tape.

When tape gets dirty a little soap & medium stiff brush has tape looking nearly new again!

Picked up the Handlebar tape for my road bike. The Orange Color is very bright and easy to spot. This has more comfort than some of the other Tapes I've used in the past. More cushion for bumpy roads. Only been using a few weeks but its holding up well during the first 100 miles.

Good Feel but Lacks Adhesive

I got the dark brown, which looks good with my forest green Surly, but there is a a problem applying it. It streches enough but the backing is not sticky enough to hold it in place. I used adhesive on both ends of it; I hope that was enough. If they fixed that, I'd give it my full recommendation, but not as it is now.

I have been using gel cork bar tape for many years. It's easy to keep good tension on the tape during installation. The tape lays flat without wrinkling. The cushioning is good for vibration absorption without being overly thick.

Installing bar tape is not my forte. This tape is most likely the easiest to wrap (if you are a bar tape nerd like me). It stretches a lot, although don't test it's limits as it can tear. I had about 4 inches left over when I reached the top of my 44 bars. And I wrapped it fairly thick. I have arthritis in my right hand and gel tape helps take out the road shock. It has a great feel to it in dry or wet weather. Long lasting, but if you pull it off and on a couple of times it will crimp up like a wet noodle. Just install it and leave it be. Like I said good stuff and great price here at BDT.
