Those are the new Burgtec Bartender Pro Grip Minnaar and come stock on the new Bronson. You can see the little fins that run along the front side in this pic. They're pretty comfy once broken in, which is entirely subjective.

The original picture are not the Burgtec Bartender Pro. The Bartender Pro grip (my favorite grip) has larger "fins" than the one pictured and likely a bigger diameter, but diameter is hard to tell from a picture. Maybe they're the original Bartender grip?

The ones in the original photo are the same as the ones I posted. I went to the garage to double-check.

The grips in both photos have similar knurling to the original Bartender (cheers for the link) but do have fins on the front for your fingers (as you can see in my pic.)

I think I was thrown because Santa Cruz has them listed as the Pro Minnaar on their spec list. Perhaps more is afoot here than we realize...

Came on my 2021 Megatower and I have yet to change them... I am a big fan of the ODI AG-2 grips, but still don't see a reason to swap them out yet. Very comfy!
