Have been a fan of the lizard skin bar tape for a few years so decided to try these. Put them on my bike and my daughters and really like feel of them. A couple rides in and will buy another set for my sons bike.
This grips are really tacky and feel great with or without gloves. They lock on so you don't have to worry about them moving around at all when you're riding. An added bonus is they come in a bunch of colors that look great on any bike!
Couldn't wait to get my new, awesome, grips... was tracking the package everyday. Finally get home, rip open the box.... The plastic was open and there are 2 grips with NO CLAMPS! This is my first time ordering from this place and I'm not impressed. Very upset. (EDIT) Customer service was very helpful and sent me out new grips and refunded my shipping. 1 star -> 3
Gold lock on's - are you serious right now? Buy these. Buy them right now and don't look back. Besides the looks my hands are locked onto my handlebars. They're amazing to the touch and I highly recommend.
I just built up a new bike for my son and put these grips on it. These grips truly rock. They stay put in all sort of trail conditions. There is defiantly no hand slippage while killing the downhills! They are super sticky with sweaty hands, trail dust and when they are wet. I highly recommend them.
i have wrecked more than i would care to admit, and these grips have been bashed up pretty good. despite the scrapes, they stay in place just as well as day one, still grip as well, and still look rad. if you're doing long xc rides, get some gloves with more padding to fend off fatigue. but for shredding the mountain, these ghave a great feel and i would highly recommend them.
At first, I was sceptical of going with lock on grips from my hands rubbing on the metal ends, but I ended up falling in love with these grips. They are firm, but still have a bit of cushion to them to give you unbeatable control. They might not be very comfortable without gloves, but with gloves they give me enough comfort for anything the trail can throw out. They also last quite awhile.
Got these to swap out the terrible stock grips on my new 29er. The grips look great on the bike. Material seems durable and good quality. Good grip but these are FIRM and on long rides my hands do get tired. (Maybe I need new gloves too, to go with the grips...)
Like your grips super thin and super grippy? Then these are perfect for you too. Got some for the DH bike, but definitely plan on getting another pair for the XC. Clean and simple looking too which is a plus.
It makes complete sense why Steve Peat uses these. Crazy dexterity. If you're a fan of firm grips as i am then these're awesome. Your hands do get fatigued after a long ride as there isn't much cushion. Look awesome. Feel awesome. Never had a problem with a lizard skin product!
