Strengths:    Comfortable

Weaknesses:    Slippery when wet

Bottom Line:   
Decent grips that came with my Trek. My biggest complaint with them is that my fingers slip like crazy and you loose a lot of grip once they get wet (from sweat). This could have been fixed with full finger gloves but I like fingerless.

Mine also had a tendency to roll on the bar and I found myself smacking the end of the grip to put them back in place at almost every stop. A little hair spray can fix the rolling if you have some at home.

Strengths:    LOTS of grip. Good uniform pattern on entire grip. Not bulky. Cushions hands well. Very sticky.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Very nice grip at a great price. Simple design. Raised honeycomb pattern does a great job of providing grip, cushion, and practically adheres to my hands or gloves. I like the uniform pattern on the entire grip, you know exactly what you're holding on to no matter where you hands are placed. Nice low profile design too. I would recommend for all riders.

Strengths:    Comfortable, no weird designs like lizards. I bought these grips because this look like they dampen vibrations well and they look great. So far I'm very pleased with them. They are Dual compound which means to me that they are sturdy yet soft.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Great grips! I like the honey cone look and they feel great. What else do you want from a grip. To install just use a little water or hair spray. Avoid the soap and other tacktics they are not nessesary.

Submitted by Daniel Vadil a Weekend Warrior from Sunnyvale, CA USA

Date Reviewed: January 27, 2007

Strengths:    It's grippy, really grippy. It almost feels like glue is stuck to your hand, if you're actually gripping it.

Weaknesses:    Long rides cause callaces due to the very large blocks of rubber. Somewhat soft at first, but wears away faster than I expected. It's hard now, since it's quite worn away. But, I don't mind it being hard, it doesn't bother me.

Bottom Line:   
If you simply want something grippy as hell and w/ large blocks of rubber, but w/o the need for something soft, this is the right grip for you. Not recommended for those who ride often or need something comfortable.
