From the first family of downhill racing come The Athertons Star Series Grips. For a great grip and total control, they're made of dual-density Kraton with an Atherton logo pattern. Plus, there are aluminum lock-on clamps that ensure these great grips will never slip.

Strengths: no lockring on outside of grip
rubbery all around end so its easier to hang on to ends of bar
both bolts have torque specs engraved on theml
rubbery on edge means that its going to get torn up when bike gets set down or thrown down
they are exactly as advertised. it is very nice being able to use bars all the way to the end without the lockring or anything in the way.
they stay in place just fine and even have torque specs printed on the metal. if i had a torque wrench it would be be very simple to check.
they are a thin grip. im still on the fence if they will end up working for me. but they are an excellent design and i would very much like to see this done with a wider/softer rubber deal.
