Half Nelson Lock-On Grip

Instead of spending a season and a half adjusting your hold on too-squishy grips, waiting for the day they finally wear down enough to feel just right, start the the season off with the Race Face Half Nelson Lock-On Grip. The fact that the grip shares a name with a beloved wrestling maneuver should give you some indication of its efficacy, but if you're unfamiliar, let us fill you in. The Half Nelson was made to feel like a perfectly broken-in grip, with a low-profile design, half waffle pattern, and soft, tacky construction, but still exhibit the longevity of beefier models. It'll lend you precise, pared-down control in the cockpit, without the unreliability of an old grip that's finally reached its prime.


  • Forgo excessive cushion for this slim, precise grip
  • Lock-on design is both secure and easy to install
  • RaceFace MX style half waffle provides extra hand grip
  • Topographic moisture channels promote airflow

Great Grip But End Caps Aren't Great

I've put it through the wringer

I love the grip power these grips have, but the ends the grips keep falling off and they get lost on the trail.

Comfortable and cool

I've put it through the wringer

These have been my favorite grips I've used. They are durable and make the long gripped downhill sessions much more comfortable, plus the colors are great!

Decent Grips but weren't for me.

I've put it through the wringer

Very easy to install, great colors, and had very good quality. I received a weird pain on my thumb while using these so I switched them out. Grips are a very personable thing.
