Strength:

Look cool, rubber is hard, and will last, light

Weakness:

plastic clamps, rubber isn't one piece, no instructrions for the flanges

So, I got these grips for 10 bucks + shipping, i live in az, so when I recieved them an opened up the package, the glue wasn't dry and the grips were coming apart where the ends meet, d/t it being so hot, i was still able to push the rubber ends back together. Quick fix, 60,000 psi 2 part (clear) epoxy. the grips will not be comming apart again. I installed the grips without the flanges because i had no idea how i was supposed to install them. My grips before this were lizard skins Peaty, nice grips, sh**ty rubber. after a while, the rubber was melting off like, and sticky like glue. destroys your gloves, and un comfy without gloves. which is why i chose a hard rubber compound. I like these grips, they aren't the best, but they look pretty cool, and with a little help, will be awsome.

Design/Manufacture/Materials

These grips don't last. They are two pieces of rubber (halves) glued around a hard plastic core. The rubber is fairly hard durometer (unlike all other grips I've used), and haven't softened up with use. I have gotten a lot more calloused with these grips, as they are hard....and they are slicker than ODIs rubber.

The clamp seems to work, but isn't as burly as ODI's system.

Where the two rubber "skins" meet (two lengthwise seams)....they are separating/peeling up out near the bar ends. Real POS grips in my book.

They look awesome on the store rack though....and that's where you should leave them....I am going back to ODIs, they know what they are doing!

Strength:

Easy to get on and off, good and sticky

Weakness:

DO NOT overtighten the set screws!

Love'em...their sticky, easy to take off or move around as needed, for example, with my Yeties, I would of had to cut them off and buy new ones to add on bar ends. With these, loosen the set screws, move'em and retighten the setscrews. No problems yet and a lot of hard riding in a short period of time.
