Went on OK, even with my unskilled hands. Feels comfortable and looks good
A lovely classic, but it isn't just nice to look at - it's comfortable as well.
Easy to apply, plenty of length for whole bar application.
Good soft tape
Excellent basic handlebar tape which is very comfortable and easy to fit.
Decent amount of cushioning. A pain in the backside to put on just like all other bar tape !
I`ve used this for the last few years, easy to wrap, looks good, feels good!
Good, simple handlebar tape. Does the job and is super comfy, have no issues.
Cinelli has always been my go to handlebar tape. Always a quality product that performs well.
Feels comfortable and was easy to install.
As you'd expect from cinelli cork - no frills but does the job. Very vibrant orange colour that I was expecting. Bar end plugs are rubbish though; I discarded them immediately and used leffe beer corks.
Cinelli handle bar tape has all ways been my favorite. Good quality and good selection of colors. Dark blue is a color I use a lot and Merlin was the only place I could find it this time.
Nothing but Cinelli Cork for me...I've been using it for over 20 years now.
What can you say? Cinelli cork, still the best in my eyes. Basic solid colours with a light touch, non-sticky grip and a classic feel.
It's classic cork bar tape, exactly what you want. Had no problems installing as usual.
Cinelli tape is the same as it always has been, my personal tape of choice for the last 25+ years, delivery was fast, to N.B. Canada in 5 working days!
Beautiful and comfortable tape, not sticky at all. I use with bare hands on a carbon bar and it's great.
Easy to put on, comfortable and absorbs the bumps. A great value overall.
Good middle of the road tape. I change it mostly once a season if not even more often. So no need for expensive Bar Tape
Great tape, old school but classic!
Handlebar tape is rather personal, like saddles. For someone looking for comfortable and resilient bar tape, that does not feel overly squishy, this is the job. The cork/polyurethane tape is easy to apply, with a slight stretch. It lasts well is washable (or, buy black) and looks great, especially on classic bicycles.
Always the best, long lasting, great value.
Very very comfortable on the hands. I would say these are more for the casual/weekend rider who prefers a soft grip. Racers might want something a bit tackier.
I started using this tape recently, feels nice, doesn't fall to bits if you remove it to replace cables and goes straight back on. Best value tape I've found so far.
Good old cork. Comfortable and easy to apply.
Not the easiest to apply, but it feels nice to the touch. It gets dirty very easy, but that holds true for almost all comfortable handlebar tapes that still gives you grip. I got very little excess after wrapping with this tape, so beware not to wrap it with too much overlap.
Well padded bar tape as always from a quality brand like Cinelli. A well trusted and used tape.
Great bar tape, comfy, head wearing, good price
Very good tape but as with all bar tape could be 100mm longer for ease of fitting
The tape itself is great quality, comfortable, lightweight and easy to apply. There's plenty of tape to wrap the bars so long as you remember to stretch it a little during application. The adhesive strip could be wider, but it's not so narrow as to cause problems. The bar end plugs didn't fit my bars, and the sticky tape supplied to cover the ends of the handlebar tape was useless. I ended up using electricians tape and my old bar plugs. As mentioned in reviews elsewhere, the red colour isn't particularly good. It's a pinky-orange, and doesn't match with the red found on recent Specialized bikes. I'll be going with the white or the black next time. Small complaints though considering the price of this bar tape. It's definitely the stuff to get.
Good quality product. Instant grip in wet conditions
Cork is still the best comfort
Nice tape, easy to wrap and a reasonable price. Can't fault it
Very nice feel on the bars. could do with a little extra length on the rolls.
Excellent product, very pleased with the fast delivery.
Superb comfortable tape
Quality tape, and usual great price and service from merlin
This bar tape is easy to wrap and your pricing rocks, thanks.
Nice tape, it wrapped nicely and looks good, it was nice and sticky although could still be removed to adjust.
Easy to put on and well packaged, little disappointed in the colour as it is more pink than Red that I was looking for.
very comfy and well made and looks like it will survive the elements
If I am to be honest this tape was not that good. It was a bit thin and the lenght supplied was a touch short
Great classic tape. Not too spongy. Wraps well and gives a nice pro look to the bike.
Tape is elastic enough to ensure that a good final result is obtained, even if you are a novice. 5 stars
