Simple questions: has anyone tried Scott Racing Lite Open Grips (16g a pair)?

http://scottusa.com/gb_en/product/2549/12312/racing_lite_open

How comfortable are they and do they soak up water in the rain?

Google has turned up very little on them...

Thanks :)
iI don't know that specific model but i also use Scott foam grips and have no complaints whatsoever.they have a nice shape, are very grippy also in the wet and give good control. I also used Ritchey WCS and other foamies but those felt too soft and gave a mushy feeling.

Thanks for the reply. The AT4 comfort grips were the others that I was considering but as they're both the same price I thought I'd see if I could find any information on the Racing Lites.

I'll give them a try and if I don't get on with them I'll try the AT4 grips.

The grips came today and seem fine. I haven't had a chance to ride with them yet as my bike is in bits (and I'm "resting" as I've got some bruised ribs).

£7 to save 100g (the old grips were about 120g) seems good value to me :)

Dont you guys have problems with foam grips twisting on the bars? Based on my past experience foam has a tendency to twist easily and is impossible to stick on with traditional methods. I've thought about using foamies but I can't deal with any twist riding a SS.
