Submitted by Rich a Cross Country Rider from Houghton, MI

Date Reviewed: September 5, 2001

Strengths:    Inexpensive, variariety of colors, sticky

Weaknesses:    The grips are very sticky, and in warm weather if you take a digger in some dirt, the dirt will stick to your grips.

Bottom Line:   
The CODA weaves were wearing out and starting to slip, so I picked these up cheap. The blue grip looks cool on my bike, and the grip works great. So slippage. It is a good grip at a fair price, and looks good to boot.

Strengths:    grippy
Size of the grips ( diameter)


Weaknesses:    chewed them up in a BIG crash

Bottom Line:   
This is a great grip however the thickness of the grip does not suit all people ( A friend of mine got a set and didn't like them at all) Really like these grips but when the time comes to replace them I think ill go with some OURY grips cause I really like them as well.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Really nice grips, the top layer has a little give to it but that's better than pulling the palm right off your hand( they're that sticky). If they break down suddenly, i'll send another review, but until then, 5 flamin cigs

Durable, great color selection.


Bottom Line:   
What do you say about grips? They either suit you or they don't! These grips work fine, look great, come in a bunch of colors. They wear just like any other grips.
