    Needs new grips.. Any suggestions?

    Hey all,

    My grips are getting pretty worn, they would slip on me whenever my hands start to sweat. I was wondering if you guys have any pre-experiences for a good pair of grips.

    Make note these are gonna be for riser handle bars.

    Best grips I ever had were a pair of Ame I got around 1990. A few years later I tried something similar to their Tri-star grips, but found them too thin and not grippy enough. One of these day's I'm gonna get a pair of these, but haven't tried them yet, so can't suggest them.

    I like Oury and Yeti Speed grips. Speed grips aren't as nice for bare hands as the Ourys.

    I love those Odysseys by the looks of 'em, I'd have to X-acto that inner flange off, tho.

    I've always liked Odyssey's grips, I love those and Gedda 2 the most; very cushy grips.

    this is [off topic] but i feel this is a better solution after you get another pair of grips:

    wear full fingered gloves (i like batting gloves when riding)~ love the grip and grip doesnt really wear nor can you sweat and ruin anymore grips~


    otherwise: get all-city track grips.

    Nothing wrong with Ourys...lots of colors, relatively cheap, good grip, and soft/comfy. Threw a set on the gf's build and she loves them. I might go with a set of Oury lock-ons on my FR/DH rig when the current ODI Rogues wear out.

    I've had mixed luck with Ourys. The first pair were the transparent color, and were very soft and cushy. But, the second set were orange and are very hard and leave a major checkerboard pattern on my hands after a ride. I agree on the grip being good.

    That's how my Oury's felt. Kept giving me blisters.

    Charge makes nice grips. I use these black ones on my risers.

    Plus they got those locking ends so they stay in place

    I use tape for drops

    I'm too used to my bullhorns to climb but I'll see if I can find a bar that I like.

    I had that when I switched from horns to risers. You get used to it. I like climbing on risers more now, less bar flex.

    I just got these BG Contour Short Grip and they're incredible. Sooooo comfortable.

    I've got them on trekking bars that are wrapped with VO leather tape everywhere else.
