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.

Will Trade Bontrager Race Lite for Magic Beans

It was a gorgeous black steel frame with silver and yellow decals on the top tube and down tube: full XT and 60 mm of travel. It rolled out the door at just about 25 pounds ... Read More »
