  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I didn't like the aethstetics of these grips at first. I then gave them a run and haven't looked back since. These are by far the most comfortable grips I've ever used and put a pair on all of my bikes. I definitely recommend them!

hard install but worth it for comfort

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I really like how these grips feel. They are slightly thinker than my old grips and they feel great. They have helped my hands out a lot on longer rides. They were a pain to get on, and they don't seem as durable as regular rubber grips, but I love how they feel. Also, they don't look near as good as my old grips.

Great grips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these grips on all my bikes, from a full suspension, my hardtail, and my fatbike. They are great ad absorbing the shock, help insulate the cold, and mold to the hand pattern nicely.
Use isopropyl alcohol for easy installation per their instructional video, but if they need to be removed that will take some muscle. Just plan on keeping them on until they wear out.

Have used for YEARS

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Okay you can't use one pair for years...they don't last too long when you crash a lot, but they are grippy, non slippy, comfortable, and great for hands that have pain on other grips. They are incredibly light, but a pain in the butt to get on and off.

Here's a trick: Use zip ties - wrap about 3-4 of them around the grip (I usually put them in backwards so you don't have to waste 4 per grip) then they will slide on the bar so much easier than their suggested "spray with windex" method that sucks.

Get them. Your hands will thank you

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been running ESI grips for years, and they are my go to grips for my bikes and my boys bikes. Every time I get to install a new set, I am reminded at how great they look, but just how happy I am to wrap my hands around them. I like how they offer three sizes, and I've used each and every one of them and will continue to do so for many years to come.
As for installation, just be liberal with the IPA and use gloves or a towel to assist slide them on.
Grab a pair or three and add some color to your bike and comfort for your hands.

Love these Grips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things are pretty chunky, which I love. I'm a bigger guy (6'5) and they fit in my hand a lot more securely than regular grips. They are also stupid easy to put on. That or my Santa Cruz 5010 has smaller handlebars then everyone else? Go get some isopropyl alcohol, pour a bunch all over your bar end and these things, and slide them on. I think doing both took 3 minutes.

Pain to put on, but worth it.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've really been loving thse since I have a large hand. Super grippy. Just sucks to put on.

Love It

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Husband got these for his townie bike and he says they rock. He got them in the red and it's a nice clean bright red. He says their comfy and he prefers their silicone material to rubber.

Love these Grips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So far really loving these. Lots of cushion and help on the brake bumps. Also the fact they're a little thicker is they fit my big hands great.

first grip i've ever been excited about

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Prior to this, I've never really cared all that much about what grips I ran on my MTB. I ride a steel hardtail with 100mm of travel, so this cushy grip is perfect for me. Even previously on full suspension bikes, I would get that weird itchy/tingly sensation in my hands on descents using other grips, but that has not been an issue for me with ESI. I prefer to not wear gloves when the weather allows, and this grip is great for that.

Prefer Lock On Grips

    I have always used lock on grips so this is more of a complaint against any non-lock on grip. It is an incredible pain to install these grips, even with iso alcohol. Want to remove from your bar for any reason? Forget about it. Grip itself has good girth but pretty soft/squishy (which some may like) and no texture, which is clear from the picture. Yest these are all things I should have realized before I bought them and then ended up cutting them off (had to remove from my bar).

    the. best. grips.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are by far and away the best grips I have ever used. My son took a spill on my bike and tore the grip, so figured it was a good excuse to get another pair and feel like I'm on a new bike again.

    Great grips - these ones are real chunky

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love the ESI grips but I found the extra chunky ones to be...extra chunky. Almost too chunky! I'd check out the ESI "chunky" ones if you want those hands to be a little closer to the bars. Otherwise I love these grips. Be forewarned - if you ride ~3x per week you will burn through these in a season.

    good grip, pretty durable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These ESI grips (or round silicone) are starting to find their way onto a couple of my mountain bikes. I'm normally a ergon fan but Jeff Jones likes ESI for his jones bars and that's what I'm moving to on several rigs. I always wear gloves and I get great grip in all conditions (bikepacking in the rain as well as the gamut of what the rocky mountain west has to offer for weather). If I'm nit picking--any scuffs/abrasion (rubbing another bike on a rack, whacking a tree branch, even laying it down 'hard' to take a break when riding) are pretty visible. Not really a functional or durability thing as of yet, but just look visibly warn as the buttery smooth surface is not buttery smooth all over any more... If you were alive pre-lock on grips, installation is like that--rubbing alcohol and elbow grease to get them in place.

    Not As Cushy As Expected

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This was a father's day gift because my dad has issues with his right wrist. I thought they would be more cushioning than they are. They are still very nice grips.

    Also, make sure to put Isopropyl alcohol inside the grip before sliding it on, makes a world of difference.

    Comfy grips

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really like these. I have bigger hands so the bigger diameter of these feels great to me. Also awesome if you ever ride without gloves. The only downsides to these are if you crash they get shredded, when they get wet they get quite slippery, and they are a struggle to get on. Still awesome and would recommend!

    Soft and Supple

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    great light weight grip. Slightly harder to install than other grip but they are totally worth the effort. Definitely up to the task of keeping my hands comfortable on long rides, and fatigue free on way back down.

    Don't google "Extra Chunky"

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Just don't do it. Especially don't click the "images" tab.

    These grips are great, they are light, comfortable, and hold their color forever (and don't bleed that color on to anything else).

    Trick to install: Dump some rubbing alcohol in the grip, spray some on the bar so it coats it completely, and work fast!! Once that alcohol dries out you're working with significantly more friction.

    Have had zero issues with them slipping as well, despite the fact that some insist that they spin. I have a lot of weight over the front of my bike and never have this issue.

    From Blisters to Bliss

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These things saved my riding. I was getting terrible blisters on my stock grips and switched to these things hoping they would aid. After riding with these grips I haven't got anything even close to a blister. Superb grip and shock dampening. Also with the flashy colors you can get a pretty sweet look going if you're into that. For how much they cost, it's at least worth a try if you're looking to give another grip a shot.

    Awesome Grips

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These grips are perfect. Simple and effective, comfortable and high performing. They are easy to install, don't slip and keep me from getting blisters. Enjoy.
