Date Reviewed: March 3, 2010

Strengths:    soft and comfortable after a few rides, good design, no hand fatigue, good dimensions

Weaknesses:    two clamps, don't feel to good without gloves, they are quite hard when you first buy them.

Bottom Line:   
A very foolproof grip that doesn't wear away quickly with very few flaws. Unfortunately there are two clamps which can be a nuisance and if you like the feel and added control of riding without gloves than these grips aren't for you. These grips are my new favorite grips and would recommend them to anybody from xc to dh riders. Also, don't underestimate these grips the first time you put these on for being to hard because eventually they will soften up and the wait will be worth it.

Strengths:    Easy to install. Soft grippy rubber, look cool

Weaknesses:    Too expensive for the mediocre gain in grip as compared to good quality standard grips.

Bottom Line:   
My grips were getting a little old in the tooth and I thought I'd upgrade to these new fandangled lock on grips. They do look cool but watchout if you rub your bars on your car. It will damage the paint or leave some noticealbe scratches. As far as performance I have no complaint. They are solid. No slips or spinning of the grip. One problem I've noticed is that the soft rubber seems to be peeling off which means that they might not last the season. Not good when my last pair of grips lasted 3 years. If you can get them cheap (I mean if you don't buy them from a rip off Canadian bike shop) then I suggest you pick them up but at $30 bucks they are a tad expensive.

Strengths:    Easy to install and remove, secured position.

Weaknesses:    pretty hard, not enough cousion. tread too shallow,

Bottom Line:   
nice design that secure the grip in place, supposed to enhense your confidence. However, yesterday I was on a regular trail doing a series 2' waterbar jumps, the grip just slipped off my hand, I was in air with one hand for about 2 seconds- not quite ready for this stunt yet. Besides, the grip is hard to my hands doing long climb, didn't feel as soft as regular double-density grips, because the base layer of these lock-ons are hard plastic.

Strengths:    Super tacky... very solid...

Weaknesses:    ha! none.

Bottom Line:   
I'd been thinking about some lock-on grips for a while now, but until recently I had no complaints with my stock grips... Out at Markham in a monsoon, went over a hill and tried to turn at the bottom left grip slid right off!!!! Next day I went to LBS and bought the Lizards... great grips!!!

5 chili's cuz they have worked great so far... and tacky enough to ride without gloves!!!

Strengths:    Great feel, perfect density and diameter.

Weaknesses:    The first layer of rubber peels a little bit, but the feel is still good.

Bottom Line:   
Great grips, I cant stand the feel of anything else. If you ride technical trails for long periods of time you will be thankfull to have such comfortable grips.

Strengths:    easy instalation

Weaknesses:    extrememly hard, and metal collars can cut fingers.

Bottom Line:   
They look good, but thats about it. the metal collars on the ends that allow easy intallation and removal are located right where your hand rests on the bar. The result is, the rubber padding has almost no effect and your hands take a pounding. The really bad thing is, the metal collar has a sharp edge where the screw is recessed, which can cut the hell out of a finger....I found that out the hard way. Overall, I am changing them as soon as I get the chance!

Strengths:    Look very smart. Very secure fit on the handlebar. The grip is really good, especially with gloves. The easiest component to install I've ever bought.

Weaknesses:    Maybe a little hard for some people.

Bottom Line:   
The only weakness is that they are a little too hard. However, wear gloves and you'll be fine. They have been made slightly harder so that they last longer - much longer. This is not enough to knock off a chili though 8-).

Great value - excellent quality, easy to install, do the job well, and last for ages.

Submitted by DARTHBLADER a Cross Country Rider from Willis, TX

Date Reviewed: July 23, 2005

Strengths:    They look freakin' awesome. They definitely have a sticky, grippy feel (but not in a bad way).

They also feel very solid under your hands. Confidence inspiring.


Weaknesses:    They're hard. You have an inner plastic "sleeve" that allows you to slide the grip onto the bar, with a fairly thin outer rubber grip. I had to tighten the clamps almost to the point of stripping to keep the grip from rotating on the bar. Remember, the hard (yet flexible)inner part of the grip allows you to remove or install the grips as you please. But in all honesty, once REALLY tightened, they're not going anywhere. I do believe however that if you deliberately tried to twist them, they's still turn no matter how hard you tightened them.

The above is just petty stuff though. My main complaint is the the surface of the grips seem to peel-off, and on the surface of the grip, you get what looks like black rubber "blisters". Almost exacly what it looks like when you get a blister on the palm of your hand and it pops, leaving flappy skin edges (I get these blisters from riding my bike I'm sure; I just can't figure out why they're always on my right hand only...hmmm). This happened after maybe only 2 hours of riding, but they haven't really gotten any worse.

They also make my hands go numb. I guess if you used lightly padded cycling gloves, this wouldn't be a problem. But I don't. Like I said, there isn't much padding.


Bottom Line:   
Despite the very slight peeling/blistering, and the fact that they're the hardest MTB grips I've ever used, I still like the tacky, solid feeling of them. The rubber outer itself is soft, it's just really thin. I don't feel they're perfect but I like them. I'd recommend them.
