When chunky is good.

Not long ago, the ESI Chunky Mountain Bike Grips were a well-kept secret of elite endurance racers. But, the secret is out, and you're now able to experience the smooth ride and all-conditions control that these silicone wonder-grips have become so well known for.

ESI's grips are built from silicone for a host of reasons. Chief among them is the vibration damping that silicone provides. Basically, these are much more effective than a standard grip at canceling out high frequency vibrations, which ultimately leads to numbness and pain in the hands. It's especially noticeable during long rides, but the benefits will be apparent every time that you hop on your bike. Silicone is grippy stuff, which is good news, because that grip works in both directions. As a result, the grips are secured not only to your hands, but to your handlebars as well. In fact, when installed per the instructions, these grips stick firmly to handlebars, even in the rain. And naturally, they provide a solid hold for your hands, regardless of sweat or dirt. Better yet, because silicone has memory, these grips will break in to the shape of your hand, providing a custom-fit that gets better the more that you ride them.

These grips are offset, which means that they're slightly thicker on one side than the other. So, when installing them, make sure that you have the thicker end facing your palms, and the thinner end underneath your fingers. This will ensure maximum vibration damping, while still providing a direct steering feel. The Chunky grips have a medium thickness that works well for most riders. Riders with smaller hands, or those who prefer thinner grips, will be better served by the ESI Racer's Edge grip.

The ESI Chunky Grips are available in one size and in the colors Black, Blue, Green, Red, and White. Please note that we advise referring to the included instructions for correct installation.

Still In Love

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Can't say enough about these grips, so much so that I had to use a pair of white for my new bike build, and they have even kept clean after the first few rides!

Still In Love

Still Going Strong

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got these back in the middle of June, and they are still in great shape after a few months of fairly constant riding. I was getting out about 3 times a week for most of this time frame. They aren't in new condition; you can definitely tell they've been ridden pretty well. They're compressed down a bit, but they still have at least a few more months of life left in them.

I would say they probably won't last as long as the rubber grips I've used in the past, but I would still take these ESI's over any rubber grip. The added comfort is worth the extra expense and work that comes along with their shorter lifespan.

Best grips on the market!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used multiple sets of ESI Chunky grips over the years and their durability and comfort never ceases to amaze me! Prior to using ESI grips I'd get sore hands and thick calluses but that's ended when I started using ESI grips. Even riding almost everyday, the grips stay grippy and durable. It's also easy to remove and reuse them if you need to do work on the handlebars, shifters, etc. This is something I always struggled with from other brands. Also, ESI grips stay grippy when wet, which is not the case with rubber grips. All the cool, vibrant colors are an added bonus! I'd definitely recommend these to anybody that wants a comfortable grip at an excellent value!

    They're not fun to put on, but these are great grips. The proprietary foam is unlike any other grip on the market.

    Cheap and Effective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These grips feel great on your hands, and they work wonders if you ever come across excessive brake bumps. Highly recommended.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I recently switched to these after using the stock grips my bike came with. It made a huge difference! I will never use a different brand again. They are super soft and give the overall ride a better feel. I can now ride barehanded or with non padded gloves!

    I was a little nervous for the installation but I used rubbing alcohol and it was super easy to install and they were ready to use in about an hour.

    My only complaint is that after a few crashes the grips can get a few cuts and tears. However, at their price point I always keep a spare on hand!

    Great for smaller hands

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I usually run the extra chunky And got these for the lady of my life and she prefers these over the fatter ones. If you run bare handed these get pretty slippery when they get wet. That is the only reason for the 4 starts. The install nicely with copious amounts of rubbing alcohol and some strength as long as you work fast. Also make sure you have the seem where you like it.

    I Can't Feel Anything Anymore

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got these mainly for the vibration dampening, and man do they do that well. I'm wearing some gloves with just a bit of padding, and I can't feel any of those little vibrations that I used to dread. I used to be ready to quite riding after a few miles just because of hand fatigue, but I can ride WAY longer now almost without having to worry about that at all. The price is pretty great too. I would definitely recommend getting a pair of these!

    No Reason to Use Anything Else

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These things are great. I would say that they are the most comfortable grips out there, and these Chunky ones give you that little bit extra to hold on to and a little more cushion compared to the Racer's Edge version. Pretty straight forward to install as well. I will never use anything other than ESI grips on my bikes.

    ESI Grips Chunky Mountain Bike Grip

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Review #2... since got a pair for my fiance.. ESI grips are the standard! They are the best lightweight grip on the market. While the durability from a cut/tear standpoint can be a challenge as they are so light, they are super durable from a normal wear and tear perspective. I have and will continue to use them for years!

    To me these are the standard

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I dont know why you would ride any other grip. Cheap, durable and feel great. What else do you need?

    Every MTB i've owned have had these since I first found them. Do yourself a favor and buy the grips you will use from now on.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These grips are super comfy, hands feel fine on rides over 25 miles. If I could change anything I would just give some bar end options.

    Best grips on the market!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used ESI grips for years, and I can attest that they're the best grips on the market. The silicone foam absorbs shock better than hard rubber compounds, which allows me to runner somewhat stiffer suspension without my hands hurting. The chunky ones are perfect for people with medium-large hands and provide a good amount of surface area to grip the bars with. Also, the silicone compound doesn't get slippery when it's wet. It's still super sticky and perfect in wet conditions. Another benefit of the silicone foam is that you don't really need to wear gloves because it's soft enough that it won't tear up your hands! Perfect for grip shifters too because they're easy to trim to the right length and are the perfect thickness with the grip shifter.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The ESI grips are simple and comfy. The grip is tactile and even works well in wet conditions. Use alcohol to install and they will stay nice and secure.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been running these grips on my past 4 bikes. They don't last a full season, but they are comfy!

    Love Them, just wish they were more dura

      I've written a couple reviews and these are my go to grips. Just wish they were a little more durable as they tend to rip easily after a minor crash. Still would highly recommend as the light weight and grip are amazing.

      Get a grip

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These are great! Love the cushy and soft feel of the grip. They definitely tear easily if you crash or lay the bike over. But other than that I am super happy with them.

      Probably the best.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Finally, all my bikes have EIS grips.. replaced a pair of specialized contour grips and no going back... These are by far the most comfortable grips i have tried. My only beef is bar end plugs, looks super cheap.

      Best MTB grips!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These are the best mtb grips out there! Buy them now, you will not be disappointed. Light, comfortable, stylish. What more could you want from a mtb grip??
