I've had this for a few months now and I really like the cushioning on the tape. It has a high-profile, and does increase the radius of the bars by a few mm noticeably. Does well in wet conditions, drys out pretty quick.
Even if the name of your road maschine doesn't end in a vowel, there is no better way to wrap your handlebars than the ribbon from the masters of Italian style, grace and comfort. I have used this tape for forty years and wouldn't even think of changing for my classic bikes!
Since the 80s I started using Cinelli Cork Ribbon. Occasionally I try some different products but always go back to Cinelli. I always double wrap my bars so I am sure the good people of Cinelli love to have me for a customer. It works well wet and is super durable. It's light and looks good. There is enough stretch so that a neat wrap job is not difficult.
I bought the green along with the black. Havent used either yet but I also dont have a bike the green would look good on. I cant blame this on the product or the website. The green looks just like it does in the picture.
Sure, it's no longer cork, but it's still awesome. I've tried other brands, but wrapping Cinelli on my bars takes me back to toe clips, cycling caps, and steel frames. It's retro, but it's still effective - thick enough to cushion, doesn't skip when wet, maintains color, and is easy to wrap.
So dabble with the new stuff, but if you're a true road cyclist, you'll eventually come back.
Hard to beat classic Cinelli cork bar tape - it's easy to install, east to clean and lasts. I like it better than more synthetic variations for staying dry when its hot and I'm sweating.
