Odi Grips Rogue Lock-On Grip

Available At:

The ODI Rogue Grips have charms that aren't seen but felt. The soft rubber blocks are designed to cushion the blow that even the longest-travel fork can't absorb. And since each block has a subtle file texture, they work great with gloves or without. The lock-on clamps guarantee the grip won't move until you want them to. They come with the clamps, hardware, and end caps. You'll have the option for standard length, 115mm grips or the shorter SRAM version for use with twist shifters.

Strength:

Lock on, they stay put without twisting in wet weather unlike slip on grips, They are thick, They do not compress the ulnar nerve like harder, smaller diameter grips.

Weakness:

They do get dirty with hand oils and dirt, they can become tacky when dirty and need to be kept clean. Your hands can become black from them.

I bought these to replace the ODI Ruffians I had on my bike for almost 6 years, they were well worn and were overdue for changing. These grips are of a larger diameter and do not cause my hands to go numb after longer rides. I attribute that to the extra cushion of the grips and the larger diameter which spreads the pressure out much wider across the heel of my palm. I gave these a 5/5 in both value and overall because they perform as well if not better than the conventional grips and still have so much more to offer over the conventional grips. Yes, they do get dirty and leave black stuff on your hands... so does dang near every other grip I have used. I will be using ODI grips whenever I need a set from now on. They are the way to go. I AM A FAN.

Rigid Unit   Weekend Warrior [Apr 16, 2013]
Strength:

Agressive, chunky, spongee- yet firm, dual lock features, MADE IN THE USA!

Weakness:

None to date

The first thing I swapped out on my new Kona Unit Single Speed 29er and improved the grip/rideability character instantly over the hard/thin stock grips. With gloves or not, these are the ticket to hand comfort, 'specially on a rigid 29er. I have large hands and feel these were custom made for my application. Like one reviewer mentioned the small screws rusted over time- so I will be dropping a small amount of WD or whatever onto the screws now and then. Thanks!

bishop29er   [Aug 09, 2012]
Strength:

Great Grip
Wider than stock
Easy to install
Don't move around
Shock absorbing

Weakness:

None

First modification I did to my trek xcal 29er, and still one of the best. Such an inexpensive way to make a big difference. I ride with gloves, but even without these are very sticky and absorb a lot of trail chatter. Nothing bad to say about these at all.

Strength:

Just perfect width and amount of grip for me.

Weakness:

A bit heavy, but shouldn't matter as long as you aren't counting grams. Expensive but worth it.

My favourite grips before I tried Rogues were Ruffians tied with Peaty lock-ons, both very good, and these days the Chinese/Taiwanese copycats are getting close to them. To me though the Rogues are in a different league. People call them fat, but really it's only a tiny bit extra in diameter that makes all the difference. I'm a bigger guy, yet have petite girlie hands and using these gripper fatter grips really work for me and inspires confidence on the trail, my new benchmark in grips, same as Maxxis Minions for tires. Maybe it's because I've used bigger grips off and on, on motorcycles for years that makes the marginally wider diameter work for me.

I would recommend that everyone at least try these grips, but I doubt they suit everyone.

The-Ox   All Mountain Rider [Apr 27, 2012]
Strength:

Grip, durability, comfort, size

Weakness:

none

I got big hands and the stock Specialized Grapplers on my new Stumpy FSR were too thin and painful even with gloves. I loved Yeti Hard Cores for the comfort and the larger diameter, but I wanted something more durable that locked on. These are fantastic grips! Solid and comfortable with a great surface area to work with. You won't be disappointed!

Strength:

Great grip, long lasting, no slip.

Weakness:

The screws rust out very quickly - not a problem until you are trying to get these off. I had to drill out one side. They're tough though, they took the abuse well when I tried to pry them.

Great heavy duty grips until it comes time to take them off.

ParengBalot   All Mountain Rider [Feb 27, 2012]
Strength:

Grip, Comfort, Ease of Installation, Feel, Cush

Weakness:

Heavy

Love these pair of grips. They have plenty of padding for comfort on epic rides & provide plenty of traction. Material is very durable & strong during crashes & alloy clamps protect the grip when hitting rocks. The plushness of the grips doesn't make your claws tired & very forgiving on rock garden trails, plus it doesn't give you calluses on your palms. They are very durable & last for plenty of miles of fun! I like the refill concept without having to buy the lock-on clamps to save on $$$.

The smaller grips are good for short races & control, but the Rogue are the only set of grips for all-terrain, all-mountain, & epic fun!

Summed up: Best of all gel grips with plenty of cush, traction, & toughness.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
Likes: Grip, Comfort, Ease of Installation, Feel, Plushy

Strength:

Grippy. Lock on. Cog for bar ends.

Weakness:

None

Very happy with these. Grippy in both wet and dry conditions, good diameter for big hands. Have cog so they lock onto Cane Creek bar ends which are made of a similar rubber so they integrate well.

ccs1676   Weekend Warrior [Sep 25, 2011]
Strength:

Stays on bars, does not slip. Solid.

Weakness:

None.

I got these grips because the stock ones on my Hardrock would literally slide around on the bar. Realizing just how hazardous that could be at some point, I needed new grips. First off, lock-ons are the way to go. You need your grips to just stay gripped tight on the bar. As far as other lock-ons go, I bet they are just as good if not better than these, I chose these strictly because of the reviews on this site. So far they have been absolutely fine. The allen screws which hold the grips on require a really small allen wrench. Be careful not too tighten too hard or you might bend that allen wrench.

Similar Products Used: None, these are my first lock-ons.

Strength:

These grips existed 15 years ago when I raced BMX. I picked up mountain biking this year and I almost pooped my pants when I saw ODI made a lock on version. They're that good.

Weakness:

Are you kidding? I still have these on my 15 year old BMX and they are grippy and supple after all these years. The new, lock on versions I have on my mountain bike uphold the tradition of awesomeness.

Best . . . grips . . . . ever
