I don't like the mushy feel of some cushioned tape but this one is just right. It's not too hard and not too soft. I combine it with the fizik bar gel for the perfect amount of cushioning as my aluminum frame isn't always the best for dampening road vibration. It's also not overly bulky. Great grip from the tape. It's also very durable. I got over a year out of my first roll and the only reason I needed to replace that was because I was switching out the handlebars and housing.

First of all a caveat about this review: These shoes did not fit me well, which ties in to my first issue: the Shimano size chart seemed to be pretty far off. I have a 11.5 shoe size and got a 46 (11.2 on Shimano's chart). They are HUGE on me.
I found the uppers to be pretty poor. They were pretty brittle out of the box and therefore fit alright, but as the broke in the upper seemed to crack. As they broke in they became huge to the point where I now have to crank down the straps as much as possible. It also took a while for them to break in due to the brittle upper. I got mine in July and it took me until about November to realize they were far too big.
The pros would be that the strap system is rather comfortable and they are a great price for carbon soled shoes.
