Strengths: Thin, Durable, Grippy, Good feel, Stay in place
I love these grips. They stay put even after 18 miles on a soaked race course. Good grip, very tacky. Thin enough to let you feel in control, but spongy enough to give some shock absorption. Great for small hands. Very durable. Best grips I've found since my Onza Porcipaws.

Strengths: very tough, covers end of bar, sticks like glue, incredably grippy, nice length and good width...
Weaknesses: can be bad on bare hands.. but that's also a good point.. you can't have hard wearing without a hard compound.
very tough grip. If you like your grips to be solid and let you klnow what your bike is doing, this is exactly what you want. In britian we are forced to pay a bit more than in america, but I rekon that these are worht the extra cash.
After a bit of time (it's been 8 months of very hard and long rides for me) they will start to wear wherever you put the most pressure on them. Turn them through 90 degrees.. and carry on. I use these on all of my bikes.. cos I rekon that they are the best.
Favorite Trail: anything fast, and near vertical., and anything that has the words 'Doubles' and 'Big' in it.

Weaknesses: (-)Not flashy. It simply does it's job. (I know, it's a stretch, but I had to come up with something)
Performs as well as you could expect. No problems keeping my hands on the grips during butt-puckering descents. No discomfort or blisters on long rides. These grips haven't twisted on the bars. They show no real sign of wear. No damage during any of my unplanned dismounts.

Strengths: grips, looks
I like these because they bring me back to my old school days with Ame grips on all my BMX rides. I can't believe there's no reviews on this product. Please review these they're awesome. No slippage either for almost a year. See my other reviews under my bike setup.

Anyone using the ame heated bike grips? Just picked up a pair off craiglist for $100. Are you using a metal or carbon bar, flat or riser, and grip or trigger shifters. Ive got a buddy who runs them year round.Read More »
AME MTB heated grip ergo tri kit.
Keep your hands toasty during winter rides! These are brand new, never used, never even mounted on a bike. I won them as a door prize but they won't fit the bars on my snow bike because I have twist grip shifters. These are $200 new. Asking $150
