Gel Tape - help needed!

by ThunderCat   June 25, 2010  

Can anyone please help with recommending some good gel tape for my red and white Cannondale roadie? My white ones which came with the bike have gone grubby after 6 months despite getting the Vanish out every couple of months Confused I like the look of the perforated leather ones though have read that these get just as dirty rather quickly. The primary colour of my bike is white with red signage so looking for white tape with red perforations but don't know where to start looking... Thinking

Lots of colours and combinations.

They do red and black and black and white though not red and white as far as I can see.

If you had an Italian bike their tricolore edition might have worked.

I highly recommend the bubble tape. It's solid colour, so red or white only, but it is excellent for grip and comfort.

Lizard skins wears too quickly and the top layer rubs off.

I like the Fizik dual in white with red but be aware that the red colour does run if you get rained on.
