Strengths:    Light-weight, excellent friction with a variety of leather and leather-ish riding gloves, easy to mount, once locked on - they stay locked on, good for (my) smaller hands. Most important is the feel.

Weaknesses:    Wear may be a problem for those looking for an indestructable rubber grip

Bottom Line:   
I primarily ride (Vancouver Island, BC, CAN) technical single-track on my full suspension bikes and road, trails on my hardtails I have used a variety of lock-on grips on my past 7 bikes and these are the best blend of weight, durablity and feel. By feel I mean I don't really think about how I am holding onto the bars with these grips. The low knurling pattern provides plenty of grip but not in an obsessive glued-on way. The grips flex slighly when you roll your wrists - almost lile an extension of your own arms. It is a reassuring dynamic attachment to the bike.
They are simple - a hard plastic tube with a roughtly 1/8" rubber cover and a metal-ish lock-on right with a small torx screw. I never adjust mine - they stay put. I get about 150-300 hours out of a set. They age gracefully, as the rubber becomes thinner and eventually tears away. Never had a sudden peel-away problem.
These a good for XC or short-fingered AM riders looking for a subtle but effective lock on

Strengths:    Finesse, level of control, slim feel, feedback, well made.

Weaknesses:    None apparent yet.

Bottom Line:   
These grips are, in my opinion, ideally suited to fast XC use and especially racing. Their slim profile and uniform, sticky grip give excellent control and feedback. Having only one lock-on means that they are ideally suited for use with bar-ends and I haven't experienced any twisting/slipping problems yet. Highly recommended.....

Replaced Suntour XCR and shaved off 1.25 lbs!

Just replaced my 29er stock Suntour XCR fork with a Rockshox Silver Recon Soloair TK and saved about 1.25lbs. While I am not one of those people that are obsessed with having a lighter bike, it was pleasantly surprised to see it. I have read how the Silver Recon is heavy and without knowing how ...

Suntour XCR > XCM > XCT?

From what I understand, these entry level forks rank XCR,XCM,XCT in terms of low end to lower end. I believe the XCR and XCM have thicker tubing(terminology?) so they maybe sturdier and possibly stiffer. IMO these three are pretty much the same forks. I do notice that the XCT gets no love. The ...

Rotor Size for 1999 GT XCR 5000 iDrive

I am working on doing some upgrades to my mountain bike and I have come across a deal for a set of disc brakes with 203mm rotors. Is there any real concern that they would not clear the fork? This would be my first set of disc brakes on a bike, so I am not sure which way to go.Read More »
