Strengths:    Great grip with gloves. Looks great, dual density rubber is nice....

Weaknesses:    In the wet, without gloves they are like ice

Bottom Line:   
Do not buy these if you have small hands. If you have bigger hands buy them. Oh, and don't forget your gloves! Now go out riding

Weaknesses:    
if you get lube on them they go hard, so you have to put them in the microwave and use a bit of sandpaper


Bottom Line:   
where out a bit quick but quite nice - be better if they were wider

Bottom Line:   


Yo homez. I've fitted these to my bike and what a difference they have made. Basically they are EXTREMELY thick, so if you have small hands, forget it. They are dual density Kraton rubber stuff, which makes for a comfy, durable and grippy grip. The only complaint I have is that I had to put 110% into getting them onto the bars, the fit was that tight. However, it's swings and roundabouts as they havn't come lose and I'm confident they never will come lose until I get them off with WD40. I've even tried twisting them with all my effort and they dont budge. Another thing is that its dodgy to ride these for extended periods without gloves. There is so much grip they would just shred your hands.So, if you have small soft hands, stay away.
If you have medium to big hard hands and want a grippy non slip aggessive grip, opt in.I'm the latter so I go for 5 chilli's!
