Strengths: Extremely comfortable, great padding, really grippy, lock on feature, large size
Weaknesses: Expensive for what you get when purchased with the locks
These grips are absolutely fantastic and there is a massive difference between these and my stock slide on grips. The large Yeti pad makes these grips very comfortable and I no longer have any issues with my hands hurting or getting numb while riding. The combination of the smaller Yeti logo grips and the rubber compound make the Yeti's very grippy, I never worry about losing my grip while riding. The grips are so grippy that it almost feels like you could ride without gloves, so if you forget yours on a ride you still have a solid grip. The lock on feature is great as well. These are my first set of lock on grips and it is amazing what kind of difference it makes when you no longer have to worry about your grips moving and have them in the same place every time you ride. They are of a high quality and look great, although by the time you purchase the grips and the locks the entire package is a little expensive for what you get. If these were just a little cheaper they would be a fantastic value and they're still worth the money if you're using a grip that doesn't lock on. I have small hands and I don't have any issues with the larger size of the grip, the larger size is actually what makes these grips even more comfortable for long rides.
Strengths: Lock on, grippy compound, large (around)
Weaknesses: Large (around)
These are great grips for people with larger hands, or who prefer a larger grip surface. The compound they are made out of is comfortable over long periods of time, and reacts well to getting wet. Other than that, there is not much to say--you can always change to a different grip if you decide you don't like them after a season. Just lightly pry the open slot in the lock rings with a screwdriver, and they will pop off (once there are no screws in the sockets).
These grips are bar-end-friendly, with non integrated caps.
