Date Reviewed: December 1, 2012

Strengths:    Look nice, fit well and are fairly comfortable with gloves.

Weaknesses:    Transfers shock and can cause fatigue over longer rides.

Bottom Line:   
Upon initial touch these feel comfortable and seem like they'd work well. They however are not as cushioned as they appear and can get a little rough without gloves. With gloves they are about the same as my OEM lizard skins. Probably wouldn't buy again but for $8.00. I'm not going to complain too much.

Strengths:    Seems to none that i seen.

Weaknesses:    Seems as if they build callous' fast and wear fast towards the end of their life. When you get them they dont wear much, but once that cherry is broken then go downhill. They also arent that soft.

Bottom Line:   
I wouldnt buy these, if they can stock use them until they are spent. Other then that, negative on these grips.

Date Reviewed: June 29, 2006

Strengths:    great grip without gloves on. the end plugs survived all my crashes. haven't come loose yet.

Weaknesses:    a few months a ago I bought some gloves and the grips are widening the holes in the palms of my gloves if it wasn't for this I would keep using these grips.

Bottom Line:   
if you don't use gloves i'd buy um. the grip is great in all conditions, though people with soft hands might not likem (you build up calluloses quick).

Date Reviewed: April 11, 2006

Strengths:    good grip, dosent slide much on the bars, and is relativly comfortable, lasted about a year of hard riding,

Weaknesses:    good grip with gloves in all conditions, but when your hands are wet and your not wearing gloves you get some slippage b/w your hands and the grips

Bottom Line:   
get these if you cycle in dry weather, or wear gloves, and they wont let you down

WTB TCS Weirwolf wont mount on Bonty TLR rim

Darn bead is just too tight. Can't get the second side mounted more than 3/4. Busticated 2 tire levers. I have tried soapy water, Vaseline, leaving it out in the sun.....nothing works. Every time I try and push up the last 1/4, it pops off somewhere else. And to make matters worse I can't ev ... Read More »

Tire help for Auburn, Salmon Falls, Folsom! Wolverine vs WeirWolf?

My Wolverine 2.2 TCS (tubeless) tires are getting pretty tired and I'm debating with what to get next. I frequent Auburn, Folsom, & Salmon Falls the most. I ride a Blur TRc, more on the aggressive side (DH background). My Wolverine's have served me well but my LBS recommended I try WeirWolfs. I' ... Read More »

minion dhf 2.35 60a with weirwolf comp 2.3. which up front?

Currently running this combo with the minion 60a up front and weirwolf comp in back. I originally thought that the weirwolf should be the rear due to fast rolling, some release in corners, and good braking. Then the minion upfront due to its rep for tracking thru corners. But im not sure i like it. ... Read More »
