When you ride a lot, your grips continually and silently deteriorate—until you're left with minimal cush, and max pain. Install the Lizard Skins Charger Lock-On Grip and restore your bike’s cockpit to a paw-pleasing state.

Couldn't afford a new bike , so I got new grips! Green Envy :) , I know they're awesome! Soft, thinner, which is nice for my smaller hands..and good grip, literally! This is on Capt. Ahab in Moab, while mtb guiding this summer ~ Got Grips? Get these, great price point for quality!
I've had ODI Ruffians and Rogues. I found the Ruffian a little skinny and hard, while the Rogues are a little too thick. These Lizard Skins Chargers fall right in between; thin enough to have great feel and control, thick enough for large hand (I'm 6'1", typically a Large glove) and with just enough cushioning to help my hands stay strong over long rides. I bought these for my DH rig, and will now put them on all my bikes. Stoked!
I picked these grips up because I wanted something a little softer than the stocked grips on my Bronson. These are great for longer rides and really help keep my hands from going numb or just hurting like hell. They work great for larger hands but might feel a little chunky if you've got really small hands. I would say that gloves are a must - the ridged pattern can be a little rough on bare skin but provides a great grip with gloves on.
I ordered these recently to replace the grips on my new Stumpy Elite. They reminded me of some old BMX style grips I had on an old Haro many many years ago that I absolutely loved. These grips didn't disappoint. With the original grips on my Stumpy, my hands were getting numb occasionally but with these I haven't had any issues with numbness. They feel great, and are extremely grippy. Highly recommended if you prefer the soft spongy/grippy feel. I ordered the white not being sure if they're easy to clean or not. They did get dirty after I rode with them a while, but not nearly as bad as the original white stock grips I had. I later cleaned using some lighter fluid, which someone recommended to me once, and they popped right back to snowy white instantly. Very easy to clean.
