The Good: 1. Very, very grippy 2. Comfortable 3. Stylish
The Bad: 1. Not the cheapest grips out there
I've been eyeing these grips for a while mainly because they look amazing. Leave it to Troy Lee Designs to create something stylish out of something not intended to be. However, when I finally shelled out the money, I entered a whole new world. These are much more than eye candy. The flanges provide a very comfortable feel and prevent slippage. I have larger than thou mitts but the fairly thin grip was just perfect. The ramped knobs provide incredible grip (when pointed in the right direction), so much in fact that I didn't find myself needing gloves when my hands got sweaty. However, when used with gloves, be ready for grip grip grip and more grip.
I've swapped these out on all of my bikes. I've even thrown them on my cruiser because they are that comfortable. The only problem is that these are not your bargain-basement grips. At almost $30, these are some of the most expensive grips out there. Whatever, these grips are worth every penny. By the way, did I mention that they're comfortable.
