I wanted to like this grip, I really did!

Rating:
The Good:

Labels, the color options, the durability, installation, thickness

The Bad:

Keeps you tied down to one spot on the bars

Overall Review:

I love the idea of these grips and I have felt them in stores a lot and was impressed with their comfort but honestly, I wasn't as stoked with them on the trail. They were really comfy when your hand was in the main location thegrips set them at, but this was not always where my hands wanted to be. I like more freedom in a grip and these ones sort of pigeonhole you into keeping your hands in one place. I like that they make you ride with a wider grip than you might be used to and their labels for which side goes up and which is L/R was very handy but the rubber is very stiff and pretty heafty grip too so beware if you were getting them. The website fit me at a wider grip but I decided to go with the skinnier one and i was happy I did even if I didn't keep riding them.
