Submitted by liort a Weekend Warrior from Israel

Date Reviewed: April 10, 2011

Strengths:    Very comfortable, Thick and provides good cushion that helps keep the hands relaxed (for my average sized hands), yet not too much that it will become wierd. Excellent grip (very sticky, but in a good way).

Weaknesses:    Bar ends rubber get clipped, so you will need to put bar plugs at some time.
Hard to clean, but thats not really an issue with MTB...
Sticky rubber is not very fun to ride without gloves (not really an issue either, right?)


Bottom Line:   
Great grips for AM. Great hand cushioning and excellent grip.
Not the most durable, but neither are they too expensive to replace...

Strengths:    -Grippy/Tacky
-Perfectly squishy


Weaknesses:    -no lock on
-feels a little heavy


Bottom Line:   
fits my grip pretty well. very comfortable. One side of the grip keeps spinning but has not moved or positioned out of the bars. I love the scheme how one grip is good (angel) and the other grip is evil (devil). It just adds more personality to it.

Date Reviewed: August 7, 2008

Strengths:    Grippy, long lasting

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
The grips really perform. They are still very grippy after one year and they look good as well. I do see a slight deteration from the grips but this pair will likely last me another year.

I would buy these grips again.

Date Reviewed: July 23, 2007

Strengths:    Mint looking grips, plus they feel really soft and comfortable. great because I have a theme on my bike red and black and REALY SOFT

Weaknesses:    Get dirty sometimes so if you want them looking good you have to give them a scrub.

Bottom Line:   
great if you want your bike to look mint but have to look after them if you want them to keep looking mint, apart from that MINT!!

Strengths:    Sticky grips. Squishy soft for hands.

Weaknesses:    Sometimes my palms get numb.

Bottom Line:   
Super great grip. My hands don't slip anywhere and they haven't slipped on my bars at all. My only qualm is that sometimes my hands get a little numb. I think that's more from putting my weight on them going down hill.

Strengths:    Grippy, Sticky, Oversized(but not too much)

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
Use rubbing alcohol to install grips. Fill up the resevior and proceed to impale onto the handle bar. works great. The grips are grippy, work as spected, a little oversized. Worth the $7-8 pricetag.....
