Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 good looking tape but let down by poor glue I bought this tape to match my brooks saddle. initially i found the tape to be rather rubbery and doubted if it even had cork in it, i still doubt it. the gel inside does give a nice cushiony feel and was promising at first. Immediatly i started to apply the tape i was shocked by the non stickiness but persevered and applied all of it to my standard drop bars. i had to use a fair amount of insulation tape to stop the ends coming off straight away which was very dissapointing but as i was going to be using the bike the next day for a tour i had to put up with it. Initially very comfortable but within 100 miles it began to slip. Now after 400 miles it needs replacing as the glue appears to be water based and has all but disintergrated and slips all the time. 13 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable, easy to apply The summary says it all really. There's a good choice of colours as well, and it seems easy to clean. The plugs that come with the tape are of average quality, and the little strips of additional tape that cover the backs of the brake lever clips are more or less useless but the main item is good. 08 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent bar tape, easy to wrap/re-wrap, consistant stretch the only bar tape i use, does not stick to the bars but also does not slip from the bars, which makes correcting any erros easy peasy. comes with bar end plugs and finishing tape. also has a very consistant feel when stretching it around the bars. my only issue is the finishing tape could do with being a little more supple, I tend to use black electrical tape for a neater finish 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by STRACOMODO, FACILISSIMO DA METTERE L'aspetto piu' importante da sottolineare di questo bartape e' senz'altro la comodita' estrema che si prova dopo averlo posizionato. Riduce davvero tanto l'affaticamento e al tatto e' morbido e piacevole. Sottolineo comunque che l'ho messo sulla bici da cicloturismo DUE anni fa ed e' li perfetto che sembra messo ieri, non si e' mosso di un centimetro ed e' ancora morbido! Riacquistato e piazzato su un'altra bici con drop bar da offroad (monstercross) oversize: stessa solfa di prima: il top per comodita' e per come aderisce a guaine, manubrio anche nelle zone arzigogolate. Chi conosce il munubrio di cui parlo (Ragley Luxy) sa che e' molto lungo e cicciotto, lo dico perche' alcuni nastri NON arrivano in fondo alla piega tanto sono corti! Non questo che e' abbondante. 10 e lode. 28 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by terrible Terrible quality, worn through after 2 rides, last tape lasted 2 years! Will be requesting a refund. 23 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by First time applying, very easy First time I changed the bar tape and with help of youtubee videos it was very simple and looks great. Made a mistake on one where the plug didnt fit as there was too much tape and I accidentally tore it so had to remove the lot but was able to and wrap it back on successfully. Very comfortable feel on bumpy roads and plenty of grip in the wet. 10 July 2014
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

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: 
Yes, on the bartape is impressed the "C" of Cinelli but color on color (of the same color for the black and white just a little darkest for the natural). When you turn the bartape on the bar the letter begin well concealed.
The bar-end-plugs for the "natural" color are black. Very nice, fit into the bar very well, not too wide.

Answer: 
the branding is a very subtle Cinelli 'C' logo, which appears evenly spaced along the length of the tape, it is more of a texture than an obvious logo.

the bar end plugs are black plastic no matter which colour tape you choose, they do the job well enough.

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.
