Strength:

Very Comfortable, Easy to apply

Weakness:

Tears easily, Can't remove easily if you made a mistake and need to reposition.

Overall good performance, comfortable and easy to apply. Just don't pull too hard during application. Sticks well and won't come off easily if torn or cut.

Strength:

Stays in place and looks good.

Weakness:

Too soft and easy to tear and once it's down don't try to readjust it to roughly.

It looks good but doesn't hold up as well as it should but it does stay in place very well even if you shred it in a crash.

Strength:

Comfy, Grippy, Colors to match most anything. Real Cork, not some plastic imatation.

Weakness:

can tear easily when streatching while installing.

I recomend this tape to any-one riding a bike. Where the bars come in contact with your hands is critical, so you should have the best tape on there. With this tape I can ride without gloves, even in the rain.


Simply the best

Strength:

Colors to match any bike! These splash colors are a combination of colors, so they go great with a bike that is many colors.

Weakness:

Every time I get new Cinelli bar tape (because of ripping during crashes or just getting dirty) it always seems to unravel after a few months. It's not a major problem since it can be raveled again, but it get annoying.

Overall, this is a good brand of bar tape. It will stay wet for a little while, and might unravel, and isn't too cheap, but I like it and will continue to buy it.

Fred   Road Racer [Jun 03, 2001]
Strength:

Comfortable, and great looks.

Weakness:

Nothing serious, I didn't like the cheap plastic chrome plugs they came with so reused my old black Velox plugs.

Not a whole lot to say other than they are comfortable and the graphics are brillant but not to overstated. I got tired of black so choose the red and yellow splash to match the color scheme of the bike and it looks great.

Jason Fearing   Road Racer [Feb 25, 2001]
Strength:

Nice colors, nice chrome tape ends. Repelled rain nicely and still left traction for my hands to grip (no gloves).

Weakness:

They're still so new that it's difficult to find fault with them.

Everyone told me to get this tape, so I went out and bought three different rolls. Great grip, great in rain and still holding up after an encounter with the pavement. A+ from me.
