Strengths:    Didn't slip...

Weaknesses:    Uncomfortable

Bottom Line:   
These came on the bike, for being a stock grip, they aren't that bad. I've never kept stock gips on for more than a week, and these won't be any different, but they aren't horrible. I use gel gloves when I ride, so the only thing I really look for in grips is whether or not they grip when it's wet - and I live in AZ, so that's rare - and if they don't slip/twist. Yesterday was a day that by odd chance it did rain while I was on the trail, and I couldn't keep a solid grip without my hand slipping when I was shifting.

If they came on your bike, they are worth trying out to see if you like 'em, but if you're looking to replace your current grips, don't include these on your list.

Help - 1997 Bontrager Race Lite crankset

I'm in process of rebuilding by 97 Bontrager. It's taken some abuse over the years but looks like it's going to clean up very nice. I've post a few photos over on the Bontrager thread: [URL][/URL] It's all origi ... Read More »

2013 Bontrager Race X Lite TLR Wheels

Guys, I am looking into getting a new set of wheels for my SF100 SL Elite. It did come with some decent ones but my wife needed a new set so I gave them to her and began my quest for new hoops. Currently I am running some ZTR Flows on Chris King 36h hubs laced to straight 14 gauge spokes. I had the ... Read More »

Favorite Race-Lite (non race) tires?

I know I cant be alone thinking that 29er tires are particularly important, especially since tire weight is more dramatic on 29ers than a 26" wheel. For about a year now Ive been holding my breath for manufacturers to catch on to this more than they have for us XC/Trail guys and offer some more opti ... Read More »

Race X Lite Wheels flexy?

180lbs+ gear on carbon hard tail riding XC running tubes. I want as light as i can get within reason but dont want to sacrifice stiffness. Are these wheels going to be too flexy? (my pet peeve). FWIW I found Mavic wheels have been much more stiff than Race X Lites on my road bike. Do you th ... Read More »

Bontrager Race Lite Disc 29 (non-TLR)

Posted this originally in tires and wheels but I figured since Bonty is a Trek brand, I'd get more opinions in here: "OK, I got a wheelset from ebay to go tubeless on my 2011 Trek X-Caliber. The ad did say that it had one Bonty rimstrip and one Stans rimstrip. I didn't think anything of it until ... Read More »
