Rapha X Cinelli Bar Tape

Using Rapha colours and branded finishing tape, this beautiful handlebar tape is made by Italian bicycle marque Cinelli. The perfect finishing touch to your most treasured steed, the tape is available in either silver and Rapha pink or black and Rapha pink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks nice, in parts The finishing tape is excellent, I'd buy rolls of that if they were available. It is impossible to install this tape perfectly because it isn't stretchy or malleable - you will have gaps behind the levers and lumps on the outer curves of the drops. The lack of sections to go behind the levers is a definite negative compared to other tapes. The rolls are also rather short - you can't do a half-width overlap so you will have a lumpy finish. It looks good on the roll but just doesn't perform on the bike.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice product but too short Be careful purchasing this product if you use gel pads under your tape. When wrapping the tape over any gel pad base it is too short to adequately cover the bars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice Tape looks good however as other reviews stated it isn't particularly good at stretching so creases slightly on the bends and is quite short, I have slightly smaller women's handlebars on my bike and I still only just had enough to complete them. With this bared in mind if it's put on tightly and with slightly less overlap than usual it works fine and looks good! Grey is very grippy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely stuff Recently purchased to replace my much fraying original tape. Very nice looking with the pink visible from under the black, I feel it has transformed the bike. Feel seems good so far. I was unsure on the Rapha branded tape but in the flesh it's much more subtle with the logo more grey than white. I've noticed it had unstuck a little the other day, but am putting that down to the bike heat from the radiator the bike is mounted above.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top quality and easy to work with I bought both grey and black versions of the tape for mine and my brothers bike. The black tape has a more leather finish, where the grey is has a more grippy silicone finish. The finish and quality of these tapes are perfect, with the end tape a nice little touch. I much prefer the black tape as I don't like my tape to grippy. Also the grey tape can get dirty very easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great feel. End holding tapes need improving. Overall love this product, great feel, leather like and looks sharp (black with subtle pink). One comment, I had a professional bike shop fit the tape but they were unable to use the end holding tapes provided (Rapha & Minelli branded). These are not strong/adhesive enough and kept rolling. Had to throw them away and go with bike shop black end tape in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and style. Wrapped my bars last night with this tape and was really impressed with the quality and feel of this tape. I normally run Lizard Skin tape due to the grip & comfort for Cyclocross, but this tape tops that in terms of installation ease, appearance and first impressions. I highly recommend this for someone looking for a high quality and stylish bar tape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look and feel are classy Bought this tape ( grey) for my new build 2nd bike as already have the black on my wilier zero 9. The look is fantastic with lots of grip and feel without being to padded ( not recommended if looking for super cushioned bars) best suited for riders who like some feedback. Easy to fit and overlay however not much stretch so be a little carful

Bar tape is 'slippy' .......any advice on how to make it easier to grip please?

Asked by: Larry
Hi, the tape should not feel slippy. Perhaps wash it with a weak detergent solution to remove any lubricant which may be affecting the performance.
