Nice durable grips but not amazing for gloveless riding
Rating:
The Good
Super soft, durable, match Renthal bars
The Bad
Outside collar, not textured enough grip design for gloveless riding.
Overall Review:

I had a pair of these to match a renthal bar and stem. Overall the Grips are nice quality with dual locking collars and the signature kevlar compound.

This grip is super soft and really forgiving on the hands an is really good for riding with gloves. The kevlar compound is really durable given how soft it is so if you use gloves and want a grip with a lot of "cush" this is a great option. 

I personally ride gloveless and with my hand right over the end of the bars and for me I just didn't get on with this grip. The grip pattern is a very subtle diamond pattern but is really not textured enough for riding without gloves. As soon as your hands get a bit sweaty, It feels almost completely smooth. Even though the compound is really grippy the grip design was just too smooth for me. 

The main thing that didn't work for me was the outside collar. I've ridden other dual locking grips and noticed the outside collar digging in but not to this extent. As the compound is so soft there is quite a lot of squish to the grip area, this created the feeling of quite a sharp edge on the inside of the outside collar. It dug into my hand really badly and I just couldn't use these grips. 

To summarise, like all contact components grips are a matter of personal preference. If you ride with gloves and wan't a grippy, comfortable and long lasting grip, these are probably a great option. If like me you like to ride on the outside of the bar, ride gloveless and like to get more feedback through the bars, then going with a grip with a single collar design is likely a better option.
