Strengths:    Cheap for lock on
Big & Chunky
Fits large hands
Made in USA

Weaknesses:    Takes a bit of brute force to install

Bottom Line:   
The short term has been great, super sticky and soft enough to cushion your hands but firm enough to maintain control. Getting the slide locks on took a bit of force but using table for even leverage works great. Snaps right in. Smaller hands may not like these as they are BIG, but for the L to XL glove crowd they fit the hand great.

Strengths:    grip

Weaknesses:    diameter

Bottom Line:   
Great grips for downhillers with big hands, but I would not recommend for CC riders or those with small hands. These have good grip and are reasonably soft, but the pattern bothered me and the diameter of the grip was bigger than any other grip I've ever seen. Loved the Salsa juegos de fuego grip but now they're discontinued. After I tried the Strafe, I went to the Lizard Skin logo grip and like them much better.

Strengths:    great grip, slightly wider grips give extra cushion, easy install, use ODI parts (that's what they are anyways) so its easy to find replacement parts if needed

Weaknesses:    pay a little extra for the race face name

Bottom Line:   
great grips that are super tacky and once I have my gloves on there they aren't slipping at all. I like the wider diameter and the more cushion that the thicker rubber provides is appreciated - my stock grips felt a bit too narrow (they were just normal slip on grips). 4/5 for value because they are ODI grips with the race face name, but still for $25 its not a bad price for good grips
