Strengths:    Excellent grip, not too bulky. They don't slide on the bar when wet.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I bought these with the hope that they were going to provide more grip than the Coda weave grips. They did and I'm happy. End of story.

Strengths:    Great control, sticks well to bars, sharp colors.

Weaknesses:    Little or no shock absorption.

Bottom Line:   
If you ride techical, East Coast trails, these grips are great. The rings act like little suction cups, giving you awesome bar control while keeping your hands relaxed. The only downside is, I ride these grips with a padded glove to take up some of the shock - they have little shock absorbing ability, which can be a good or a bad thing. These grips, while a bit pricy, have survived 2 years of rugged use - so from that point of view, they are a good deal. Also, they stick to aluminum bars better than any other besides Lockjaws - a little hairspray, and nothing knocks 'em loose. All in all, a great technical XC grip.

Submitted by Vincent a Cross Country Rider from Sydney, NSW, Australia

Date Reviewed: November 22, 2000

Strengths:    A very good grip, has survived numerous reinstallations without slipping all over the place. Harsh on the hands as I found out, good with gloves.

Bottom Line:   
Good grips, just use it with gloves. Very tough, and dosen't start tearing like alot of the more gummy grips with repeated installation. Seemed expensive at first but is paying itself off already. Nice semi-transparent yellow colour too yeeehar

Replacement for Calamari grips

I have a 1999 F500 that I want to make some modifications to in order to have it "fit" me similar to my 2000 Jeckyll 3000 SX. The frame geometry is about the same and the main thing I am focused on is adding Easton MonkeyLite EA70 riser handlebars. To complete this, I am going to need to change th ... Read More »
