Why pick Salsa Gel Tape? Because a thin layer of shock absorbing gel is a nice touch to have on an all day ride.
  • Embossed with the Salsa Logo
  • Comes in more colors that a bag of Skittles
  • Includes bar plugs and finishing tape
  • Non-Adhesive for easy re-wraps
questions about the

Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape

asked by: A Visitor
Can you install gel pads under this bar tape without bulk?
answered by: mwirth
It all depends on how it is done, of course. But we do not think you'd have any issues with this tape and say the Fizik gel padding. Thanks!
asked by: A Visitor
How much tape is needed for the woodchipper bars? I'm not sure if one roll will cover
answered by: t.young
The Woodchipper isn't that much longer than a normal road drop bar, so you should be ok. It depends on how much overlap is used, too.
asked by: Jessetate_91
Is brown the dark brown/leather looking one in the pictures? Tan is the lighter brown?
answered by: canteau
Yes the brown is the darker one and the tan is the lighter brown.

Review of the Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape:
This is a very good quality bar tape. The feeling/grip is great. It even fit over my existing gel pads from my old bar tape. I already bought another one for replacement in the future.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape:
I've always used Cinelli cork tape in the past but just switched to Salsa tape this spring. One thing that stands out about this bar tape over the Cinelli stuff I've used in the past is that the tape doesn't have a lot of sticky glue which I consider a plus because it doesn't leave behind all the residue behind when it comes time to retape. The tape is very comfortable and looks great on the bike. If I had to list a dislike it would have to be the chrome end plugs... not a fan of shiny things.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Just the right amount of stickiness on the underside of the tape makes it easiest bar wrap I have ever installed.

Review of the Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape:
I have just found a new favorite tape. No sticky is amazing and its much thicker than other tapes. The red is a little bit on the pink side, but I don't care. It's awesome.

Great bar wrap from a greater company. It offers just the right amount of cushion and feels very durable for the price. Would not hesitate to buy again.

Review of the Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape:
Great bar tape, easy to apply and plenty thick but still plenty firm. It's not super squishy like a gel tape so to me it's a good balance for a tape. Have only ridden 100m or so but its holding up great so far.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Salsa Gel Cork Bar Tape:
Excellent tape, really comfy for rough roads and love the tacky but not adhesive backing for clean re-wraps.

Summed up: If you ride on real roads, get comfy bar tape.

Great tape at a great price. I love that the tape is not adhesive - it has great grip when installing onto the handlebars but without the mess of adhesive. Feels comfortable while riding and provides a thick cushion.

I love this tape, I use it on my CX and road bikes to soften the ride! It's also longer than a lot of other tapes I've used so I don't have to worry about it fitting!

A good grip for the price. Use it for commuting. May not be padded enough for a long ride with drop bars but overall a solid product.
