Bar tape brand bar tape.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

In the beginning, there was Cinelli cork tape. Since then, there have been innumerable efforts to reinvent the simplest, most basic element of a bicycle. The only appropriate response to this epidemic of over-engineering is: Git'cher damn hands off'a my bar tape.

New bike feel for cheap

    Cork tape feels great to the touch, cheap way to treat yourself to new bike feel.

    Cinelli Cork Tape

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    One of the best cork tapes out there. Very easy to manipulate during wrapping and durable once on the bars.

    good bargain

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    i do have tape i like a little better overall but for the price if your not racing or riding 100 miles this is a bargain

    Solid Tape

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great bar tape for the price, easy to wrap, comfy and does a good job of dampening bumps and more colors than the rainbow, can't go wrong.

    Excellent tape

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Cinelli is as good as any and usually cheaper to boot. The colors are vibrant and grip is good wet or dry. Doesn't hurt to have a stock of tape in your garage or shop.

    Fine Quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like this tape, but I prefer the gel cinelli better. I'm not changing it until it wears out as there is nothing really wrong with this, but for a bit more squish, go with gel.

    Comfy and great colors

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Definitely solid bar tape. It provides enough cushioning for a comfortable ride, and it lasts for quite a while. Plus, it's super affordable and the colors are great!

    I'm going to put this on everything!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Steering wheels, shovel handles, lawnmowers, you name it. I replaced my tape about 1100miles ago with Cinelli for the first time and it leaves nothing to be desired. I ride a pretty low-end specialized on relatively crappy roads and this tape knocks down a lot of vibration. I don't ride with gloves, and there is no need. This tape is plenty thick and holds up well.

    Feels Great

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just replaced the tape that came on my bike. It was long overdue. I chose this because of the price and the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the tape. It feels great. I was not looking for something with over the top padding. This tape has just enough to feel comfortable but not squishy. I'll have to wait and see how it wears, but my initial impressions are very positive.

    Best tape out there.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is in my opinion some of the simplest and best bar tape out there. You get a soft texture with ample stretch and length to easily wrap any set of bars. Having a ton of colors is always a nice plus as well.

    Hey Kieran,



    This product includes 2 rolls and it usually takes a roll per side. ddalton@backcountry.com

    Thanks for the quick reply Dan!

    The Original Cork Tape

      It's good, basic cork tape. Years ago Cinelli cork tape was all there was. There is a much larger selection available now, some with more padding and some with better grip, but this one matches the decals on my bike.

      Great tape with sweet colors!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the best cork tape available. It has a great feel, it's very durable, easy to keep clean, and they give you plenty material to wrap even the biggest drops. Also, I'm a big fan of the color options! Don't kid yourself... you know it matters.

      Nice feel, improved comfort and grip

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Believe it or not, I actually put this tape on my lawn mower handles because of the good reviews. It works not only on bike handles. Not only does it improve comfort, but also gives a better grip.
