Hi can some kind soul(s) give me some foam grip recommendations to look into?

Cheers :thumbsup:

I dont know if the MTB grips will last as long and the Deluxe road GrabOn's I have on My Gold wing, but they are 20 years old and still the best I have ever seen. (they were on the bike when I bought it and never knew who made them until now) I have ordered the MTB grips after looking to find ones as good as them for years.

not exactly foam perhaps, but i really like ESI...other than lock on grips, these are the only grips i would ever consider as they dont move AT ALL (perhaps the silicone material?? dunno)

Ritchey WCS or ESI Chunky. Both are very popular with the Weenies.
indeed...while i prefer the "Chunky" version for sure, a true panty-waisted weight weenie would opt for the race version, while nice, not as nice as the chunky...but lighter (though only by 10 grams @50 grams vs 60 grams for Chunky)

Don't do Pork Rinds. Mine had the throttle effect until I decided to zip tie em. They still were not comfortable. I have decided that grips for me aren't worth a weight savings. You can also try the bar tape method since you have a lot of customize grip width, thickness, etc.

I"ve tried many. Pork rinds-super thin and massive feedback jolts through your arms. Kona race-lite grips- almost the same as the pork rinds with massive feedback and sore palms. I keep going back to the ritchey wcs foams as they are very comfortable, don't twist and are only ~20 g heavier than the aforementioned grips.

ESI chunkys are sweet!
Yeah I've been looking at these, not light at 60g but they are meant to be really good. You got any pics of em to share? :p
