We’ve added more safety, more colours, more design, more elasticity to our cork tapes, with Gel Cork tape we offer more comfort and the highest shock absorbing properties. VibraAbsorb® is the secret. A gel that covers the inner surface of the tape, self adhesive and perfect to wrap. It is heat-proof (up to 60°C), super elastic, it can’t be teared and above all, it’s incredibly shock absorbing and soft.

  • Includes bar end plugs and finishing tape
  • Gel for more comfort

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality product The last time I changed handlebar tape was some years ago and wasn't pleasant. This stuff is fantastic. It's not sticky so you can retry to your hearts content. The quality of the tape is excellent. the only downer is the poor quality bar ends and naff end tape (I used electrical tape instead). Overall fantastic product and at this price you can't go wrong. 05 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Esegue molto bene il suo lavoro Leggero e morbido e rifinito bene. Grip giusto, non eccessivo. 21 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product at good price A vast improvement on my current tape went on with no problems. Fair length of tape for a decent overlap. Only criticisms are the black tape to tie of the end was a bit rubbish so used electrical tape instead and the end plugs cheap looking but overall a great tape. 13 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good, Very impressed, I've taped bars a few times and it can be a bit of a dark art, this afternoon I put these onto my eighties Peugeot (L'Ericoa Britannia is coming up!) and was really chuffed that they weren't "sticky" - it means when (notice I didn't say "if" there) you balls it up it's no problem starting again. They look really solid too - I'm yet to ride on them, hoping to get a big one in tomorrow, but I was impressed with the make up of them. Cheap as well - what more could you want? 07 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice feel, good grip Easy to install, no glue inside means you can make as many corrections as you wish. My white version is greyish already so it's not really dirt resistant. The included tape is really s#!t, I had to use normal insulating tape instead. Next time will go for a different colour because I like the kind of grip and comfort it gives. 06 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Very comfortable and grippy on bumpy rides The gel tape is definitely thicker and cushier but it works well to absorb vibration. Gel is a bit easier to wrap as it is non-adhesive and can stand to be stretched a bit tighter. For the value and price, I would highly recommend this over the traditional cork tape. 05 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely ELATED! 1. No adhesive stickers at the back of tape. Uses a non slip kinda material to hold it in place. It means- YOU CAN UNDO IT IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY with the rolling. omg. 2. The colour is amazing the feel is good and the touch , well, the gloveless thing doesnt quite work out. It is softer , more cushion, but i will still wear a glove, i think the cushioning could be better, but being said. It is an 10 star product. 3. IMPORTANT TIP. THE START OF THE BAR END, DO NOT LEAVE HALF OF THE TAPE OUT. LEAVE JUST A TINY BIT I WOULD SAY HALF A CM maximum. I have read many reviews about not being able to cap in the bar end cork or cap whatever you call it. Please leave Maximum half a cm of tape out and it works fine. I cut away my first tape so that i could push the bar end cap in but it failed as the gel tape is thicker and leaving half the tape out is a big no no. half a cm maximum. I totally forgot that I could undo it. I hope no one makes the same mistake as me. 27 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what needed First time doing this tape change Easy to fit and additional tape etc included is benefit 23 May 2014

Is there any branding on this product?

Is there any branding on this product?

I see quite a few bar tapes have varying degrees of branding written on them, and I feel this spoils the clean look of a bike.

Also, what are the bar end plugs like? Not as bothered about an emblem here, but advice on colour?

Answer: 
The tape has the Cinelli logo stamped on all along the full length, this is subtle and does not look over the top. The bar ends are black with an embossed Cinelli logo. I also prefer the understated look and like this tape.

Answer: 
The branding is very subtle, embossed logos that are the same colour as the tape, they hardly show up unless you're very close.
