Strengths:    Very low weight, comfortable, don't make sticky after standing long time in sunny.

Weaknesses:    It's the lightest version of the TruGrip WCS Grip, not so Comfortable - just a little bit, bur less foam = less weight.

Bottom Line:   
The best grip on the market.

Strengths:    Super light. Durable. Super comfy. Grippy. Cheap. Don't slip.

Weaknesses:    The Ergo bulge is not perfect. But, how could it be. Would need to make grips mouldable to individual. Public domain. No patent there now! Lol.

Bottom Line:   
Ok. This is the best grip there is for most riding.
For DH or FR, you want lock-ons. For XC/Trail and even AM, this grip rules for price/performance/weight. Period.
I like it enought that I tried the other Ritchey WCS (sort of octagonal and larger profile) but I like it much less.
So, this is the one, unless you know someone with an even better foamie for less $.

If you think durability would be an issue with this grip, you are wrong. I run these on three bikes. They never show ANY wear! It's ridiculous. My rubber lock-ons get worn away. And give me blisters in the process.

These grip great in wet or dry. Don't move (mount them easy by spraying X-strong hairspray from the Mrs inside, then slide on, and they stick in place for good). Mind you, full disclosure, I don't choose to ride in pouring rain. But, I have got caught in the odd T-storm and not noticed any problem.

Basically, my recommendation could barely be higher.
These are one of my very favourite bike products. A rare combination of light-weight, good performance, comfort, durability, and low price. Don't think they are somehow inferior to others because they are foam and low cost. Bizarrely, the absolute opposite is true.
Buy them, shave grams, get comfy, ride.

NB. The bulge is supposed to go on the inside.
