New Grips?

I need new grips...right ow I have the Kona Jack**** Grips. I just want something similar, but maybe a bit less grippy since I wear gloves and most of my riding is on road.

Have you tried the specialized body geometry grips?
They're pretty smooth and ovalized, I really like them. Provides a nice wide platform for your hands.

Wait 'till it warms up and you sweat through the palms of your gloves. You'll be wanting those grips back.

Trust me on this.

Smooth grips get REAL slick with sweat. The specialized grips use some kinda rubber that actually gets tacky when wet, so it's not that much of a problem.

My Sirrus came with those specialized grips. They seem prety nice. I havent tried them much with bare hands but when I did they have a nice sticky gripy feel.

I'm hoping that by summer time I'll have lose enough weight to fit into the biggest wicking layer that start makes.

Race Face Good 'n' Evil grips are where it's at. Not much fun installing or removing them, but they're pretty smooth yet delightfully tacky.

Try these "ergon" grips. They are sooooo comfortable.
