deda tape any good?

I have some cinelli cork tape on my ride but it seems like this porous stuff gets pretty dirty. Anyone have any thoughts on the deda tape or maybe even the cinelli gel/cork?

I like the Deda Tape a lot and the price is right. Nice feel and easy wrap but, it can come up short if your not careful with your wrap. However, if you want white nothing beats Fizik for ease of cleaning and staying white.

I love Deda tape. I will never use anything different when I need black tape. When I need white though, it's usually Fizik all the way. I've never tried Deda's colcored stuff, but I'm sure it's the same awesome tape as the black.

I have red Deda tape on my Fuji Cross, and it is a nice comfortable tape. It has not discoloured, and has not shifted from my hands.

I'm currently using Deda tape for the first time. Mine is blue. It stays in place, it's very durable, and it's easily cleaned. I've used Cinelli cork tape for years, and the Deda is at least as good as that. I used Cinelli Gel once and didn't like it at all.

I have Deda black on my race bike and the Jaguar green on my vintage Raleigh. I like the feel of it and have no complaints about installation.
