Strengths:    Good Grip. Feels good.

Weaknesses:    Dont last long

Bottom Line:   
Bottom line, theres nothing special about these grips. They feel good and do the job. After all, what else could you want from a grip? Heaters?

Date Reviewed: September 15, 2001

Strengths:    Thin, Durable, Grippy, Good feel, Stay in place

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
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.

Date Reviewed: July 12, 2001

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.

Bottom Line:   
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.

Date Reviewed: April 25, 2001

Strengths:    (+)Grippy
(+)Not too thick
(+)Not too thin
(+)Comfortable
(+)Priced-right


Weaknesses:    (-)Not flashy. It simply does it's job. (I know, it's a stretch, but I had to come up with something)

Bottom Line:   
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.

What more could you want for a 10-spot?

Date Reviewed: May 1, 2000

Strengths:    Inexpensive, good design, doesn't fatigue your hands, doesn't shed

Weaknesses:    none!

Bottom Line:   
These are great grips! They don't shed, your hands don't slip even if they sweat! Sure, they don't look all flashy and colored like some others, but form follows function. They're nice and soft too!

Bottom Line:   
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.
