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

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.

Nice tape
rating
by Bmniedbalski

I bought the dark brown, and I bought it for the looks. Looks like cork, or leather. Mates well with the color scheme of my bike. I have an old Schwann Le Tour in a dark blue. The dark brown goes great with the dark blue, and my dark brown leather saddle. This was my first time ever retaping a set of handlebars, and was happy with the results-videos on YouTube. Tape is comfortable to ride with, and is a good vibration dampner. Would recommend.

After trying many bar tapes, I settled on Salsa as it is long enough , cushy enough and stays put. It's actually more cushy than Bontrager double gel and grippier

I like the cork feel with the gel backing. Comfortable and I expect it to be durable as well.

I like the soft feel of this tape. This is the second time I have purchased it. It may be because I didn't do the wrap so well the first time, but the tape did move and the edges rounded up. I paid much closer attention to spiral direction and pitch of the spiral. Hopefully, this will help is stay in place better this time.

This finished the look on my commuter bike with its new brown Brooks B17 saddle. Very comfortable tape and easy to wrap. No issues at all.
