Featured Review

“great minimalist grip”

The Good: light, long lasting, cheap

The Bad: none so far

Overall Review: My go to grips in the past were the Odi ruffians lock-on, but I was I was looking for something even more minimal.
I purchased the kevlar version which is supposedly the tackiest and the longest lasting. I was not disappointed. The grips are super light and even thinner than the ruffians since there isn't the plastic core that the lock-ons rest on. I cut the flanges off of the end with a razor blade and it mounted up with a little elbow grease. If you have access to an air compressor I would recommend going that route.

I was a little concerned about grip slippage since these aren't lock-ons these haven't given me any issues. FWIW, I don't white knuckle or throttle the grips so it might be an issue if you do. So far two seasons on the same pair and they have held up better than the ruffians in terms of wear. One thing to note if you're concerned with looks is that the kevlar version gets dirty right away and the color looks like dirty snot after a ride or two!

If you're looking to get a super minimalist, light grip, I highly recommend the renthals.
