Strengths:    Nice feel, thick.

Weaknesses:    Too short. Cannot be removed without destroying tape.

Bottom Line:   
This tape was too short to completely cover a 42cm handlebars. I hate bar tape with adhesive backing as it is very difficult to remove. This tape is no exception. In fact, I actually tore the tape trying to rewrap it. I would not buy this product again for this reason alone.

Strengths:    High cork, low price

Weaknesses:    Thinner than Cinelli, edges seem more prone to roll.

Bottom Line:   
Feels much like Cinelli, maybe thinner from the roll I had. High cork content, looks good on retro projects (I put it on a '91 RB-2)

Strengths:    The tape itself is fine.

Weaknesses:    Too short! Maybe not really a weakness, although not as designed - the adhesive came of on the removal protective strip. Wasn't cut evenly, meaning one side was even shorter.

Bottom Line:   
The type I have is the "Cork" tape. Overall, it is similar to other cork tapes that I have used. The problem with this brand is that they don't give you enough of it. I had trouble covering a pair of 40cm bars.
