Product Description

Sometimes the things we appreciate most, remind us of our youth. This is true of Oury Mountain Grips. They have a long history of use for Motocross and BMX. If you grew up torn between mashing pedals or twisting a throttle grip, then having them on your mountain bike is akin to warping back in time to the days of old when you had fewer worries and nothing to do but have two-wheeled fun all day long.Oury Mountain Grips have a blocked design that's as comfy as it gets in a round grip. Known for being durable, we think the basic design adds to their ability to last for years. The wide range of color choices is great for those who like to add some flair to their rides. Just try to remember to get home in time for dinner.

Strengths:    Soft and grippy - look rad... totally eliminate vibration from trails. No more wrist pain... seriously... I used to get a carpal tunnel syndrome type thing on long bumpy descents, but the oury grips have helped a lot.

Freakin awesome. No experience with losing grip in the wet, but I wear gloves... gloves are good...


Weaknesses:    If any - the ends have torn after a few drops and they get a bit ratty looking occasionally (but clean very easily, after riding in the rain, they look new)

Bottom Line:   
I love the fatness, the way they make me feel like I'm riding my old BMX in the late 80's and the affordability. I would happily spend the 15 bucks to replace them... but in five years I haven't had to.

A tip for installing, spray a bit of hairspray inside the grip and slide them on... in a day or so they will be stuck good.

Strengths:    Inexpensive
Phat
Comfortable
Durable


Weaknesses:    I've had a difficult time installing these at times...specifically getting them to "stick" to the handlebar (even with AquaNet). I've also used the Lock On variety for that reason.

Bottom Line:   
Great grips. Very comfy!

Date Reviewed: August 5, 2012

Strengths:    Large size

Weaknesses:    1. The bar end ring interferes with gripping the entire bar.
2. When these get wet from sweat or rain, they LOSE complete gripping ability, and get SLICK. Your hand WILL come off in dangerous sections of trail. It's irresponsible of the company to use a rubber compound that's cheap that is prone to doing this.
3. They will occasionally get water locked inside of the grip, and start to spin on the bars.


Bottom Line:   
It's a cheap grip that fails disasterously when the conditions are wet, or you're hands are sweating. It's downright dangerous. I would avoid these grips at all costs unless you like your hands coming off of the bars when you're in rock gardens. Avoid.

Date Reviewed: March 14, 2012

Strengths:    Grip. Appearance (at first). Inexpensive.

Weaknesses:    Appearance (after a few months). Not a lock-on grip.

Bottom Line:   
Got the red ones for my commuter bike that I was decking out all in a black and red color scheme. They looked awesome at first but after a couple of months got gunky, sticky, and gross looking. The rubber of the grips was rubbing off and leaving black gunk like a pencil eraser. But they were still super grippy so I used them about a year before I go sick of how gross they looked (and felt on bare hands). I use lock-on grips only now because I got sick of what a pain in the butt it is to install/remove traditional grips.

Strengths:    Awesome grip, tackiness, last forever.

Weaknesses:    Nothing really!

Bottom Line:   
These grips are the best grips I have ever used. They have outlasted every other pair I've had by several years. I have them on all three of my bikes. I bought my first pair 6 years ago and my newest pair about 3 years ago and they both still look brand new. They are thick and soft and absorb shocks and bumps while providing excellent grip. I've never had a problem with them being wet, with or without gloves. I won't ever use another set.

Weaknesses:    I dont understand the question?

Bottom Line:   
(review for the lock on style oury) Perfect Grip. I wont use anything but these ever again. They do wear a little fast but its only because they are soft but thats hardly a problem for as cheap as they are.

Submitted by clashb02 a Racer from Birmingham, AL

Date Reviewed: August 17, 2011

Strengths:    Awesome when they're dry (4.5 out of 5 if rating them dry). Tacky, and soft enough to make them super comfortable.

Weaknesses:    Terrible when wet (1 out of 5). Technical downhill sections become way scarier. Also, first time these hit a rock or tree too hard, the ends will tear.

Bottom Line:   
Great grips for dry winter rides, but terrible in rain or super, hot and humid conditions when sweat becomes an issue.

Strengths:    tacky, durable, great colors

Weaknesses:    could be wider, and installation can be annoying

Bottom Line:   
Great grips but if you have wide hands might be a probable,but if you have long finger they are great. Installation isnt bad if you use some dish soap might rotate on you the first 1-2 days but after that they stay put if not take them off and wipe off your bar. Great grips, get them!

Strengths:    Looks, the right compound to make hands feel good, USE end caps under the grips, so the ends don't get a hole.

Weaknesses:    None for me..

Bottom Line:   
I started using these grips 40 yrs ago when they came out for Motocross bikes, they were great then and now, use end caps under the grips, so you don't get a hole in the end, to remove just lift and squirt some windex in the open end then let them dry good before reinstalling. They work thats the bottom line..oh and they look good, clean up easy.
