Strengths:    EXTREMELY comfortable, and I used to ride with foam grips. The diamond pattern is great for grip, and you'll never have blisters. Just a soft comfy grippy grip.

Weaknesses:    you could cry that it wears out, but it not gonna wear out in 3 months. Grips like mongoose will last forever, but these will last about 9 months or so... really I find no weakness

Bottom Line:   
THESE GRIPS ARE AMAZING! Sure you may slip a lil bit when you sweat, but all grippy grips that I've tried are like that. Lizard skins are probably they only way to avoid it, but these are worth it 100 percent. A smart person who is willing to replace grips about every 9 months or so should get these. If you have large hands, you can get OURYS, but I wouldn't recommend them over these for numerous reasons.
You should probably get black, cuz it will last longest. There is nothing negative about this grip, there pretty simple to install, ( use extremely hot water, then hairspray, which really works best) and is really comfy. Even when you do sweat you barely slip at all, just like any other grip out there. GEEZ, that aint miracle grips

5 AND 5 CHILI'S!

Strengths:    Colors

Weaknesses:    They fall apart and ended up ripping. Great grip if you only plan to keep them a few months.

Bottom Line:   
Im going back to Yeti or Profile Design Grips. My gut said to stay with what was working and I was in a pinch for grips.

Strengths:    feels good, looks good, tastes good

Weaknesses:    the end caps

Bottom Line:   
can't beat em for the price. they're more comfortable than any other grip ive ever used, with or especially without gloves. i always use hairspray because im a bad ass and they've never slipped on me so something besides hairspray must be even better. my only complaint is that with my current bars, Kalloy risers, the end caps were almost impossible to get in. these work so well and are so comfortable i cant see a reason to spend more.

Softer and thinner than Oury, with gloves those are my favorite grips. never slip or being too tacky, need to be replaced after one year's use (450 miles) but I will buy again (the only component I replaced the same as original stock)

Date Reviewed: April 25, 2004

Strengths:    Reduce vibration, offer a durable and comfortable yet relatively thin padding.

Weaknesses:    They tend to start turning when I starte sweating alot - don't wear gloves.

Bottom Line:   
Great grip for me. Like other peoples have written, don't use hairspray, soak in warm water then slide on. Easiest way to remove grips - use spray nozzle on end of air hose, slide it under the end of grip and spray air, the air lifts the rest of the grip off the bar and pull off, takes two seconds. Ride hard.

Strengths:    Extremely comfortable and slip proof.

Weaknesses:    The lock on feature is kind of cheesy but, works.

Bottom Line:   
These are the best grips I've ever used. I currently have a pair of ODI lock on's that came with my bike and look better than these but these are so much more comfortable. I plan on buying another pair of these very soon. If the company put a new lock on mechanism on these they would be perfect!

Submitted by Chris from Ann Arbor, MI, USA

Date Reviewed: October 7, 2003

Strengths:    Easy to install, can be easily cut to custom length, seems to last a long time. Good size for those with small or large hands.

Weaknesses:    Grip becomes rigid when cold, doesnt take to well to hard impacts. When the grip gets old, it will rub off black material on your hands/gloves.

Bottom Line:   
This grip is an easy to find, reliable standard. It will work great for all kinds of riders, and as long as you dont ride in cold weather, is a highly supple, vibration reducing material. This grip would be especially good for those who ride a mountain bike recreationally, not competitively, because it tends to get torn up when you start crashing.

Strengths:    sticks to the bar like crazy! nice and plush, and best of all, cheap...anybody who spends over 20 bucks on grips is a major sucker, even for lock ons


Weaknesses:    kinda wide but they'll wear down

Bottom Line:   
great grip for not much moneys, of course theyre gonna slip if you use hairspray and crap on them, cause you really shouldnt do that. when putting on grips, best be using water or better yet, quick evaporating electrical cleaner works best (isopropol alcohol)and they will never slip. just spray and slide em on, the stuff evaporates in like two seconds and voila, theyre stuck on there forever.. the rubber is designed to stick by themselves with out using any kinda glue or spray. work great with my axiom bars. PS if you can, get bartender grips they rock

Strengths:    Very plush grips, they stick to the bar and to your hands. All the better if you are wearing gloves.

Weaknesses:    The wear quickly.

Bottom Line:   
These are really nice. I'm a bit disappointed that I'll have to replace them soon, they have some flat spots. They never move on the bar and they never move on my hands, especially with my Fox Digits on. These are a great grip.

Strengths:    Sticky, soft and comfortable as hell. Easy to put on and they stay put.

Weaknesses:    Damaged easily if you crash but whow the hell cares, when there this good and this cheap, you can just buy more.

Bottom Line:   
Just some sweet ass grips. They do get wet sometimes from sweat but thats what gloves are for right? Never had my hand slip on these. Soft outer and hard inner work great. Easy to put on:(stole this tip from another review on this site, works for all kinds of grips)Just soak them in really hot, almost boiling water for a minute and twist them on into position. When they dry the will not move. How the hell do you get them off? same way. just stick the end of the handlebar in a pot of hot water and they twist right off. No problems at all. I transferred these grips from my old bars and didn't have to slice them off and waste $10. Bought Taco Bell instead. Awesome grip for any style rider. Thank god for these cheap and kickass grips. My pockets are hurting from the rest of my bike already. 5 fire things

Grips

Because this is such a broad question I thought I'd start a new thread. Been using Ergon for years now and really don't know what a "round" grip feels like anymore. I wanna switch it up and try something new on both my 29 ss and 26 fs. What are your suggestions and why? Thanks!Read More »

Narrow Grips - Do they exist?

The Odi Rogue is the prefered grip at the moment. Since I tend to keep my hands at the end of the bars, it makes for an awkward reach to get to my dropper post trigger. It seems like just about every grip manufactured comes in at about 130mm wide and I'd really like to see something with 10-15mm s ... Read More »
