Ultra Tacky, Ultra Comfy

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

-Lots of grip, with or without gloves
-Ultra Tacky holds up surprisingly well
-Much more comfortable than lock on
-Cheap

The Bad:

-Maybe they could be just a mm or 2 thicker?
-Wish there were more color options.
-Umm...hands get dirty when not wearing gloves?

Overall Review:

I've been riding slip on grips for a few years now, and am slowly converting my friends to them. After years of running lock on grips, primarily ODI Ruffians and some Easton grips, I saw noticed a number of pros running these Renthals and with them being cheap I thought they were an affordable experiment. I first tried the Kevlar version, which I also speak highly of, and have now been running the Ultra Tacky version for 6 months or so, and I'm a huge fan. In addition to The Good listed above, when combined with flattening out my brake levers, brake pump has all but disappeared. I try and ride 10-12 hours a week, and they have held up surprisingly well. The edge that contacts the bar end is starting to peel, but for the comfort and grip they provide, at under $20 you could replace them twice and you'd still be out less than some lock on grips.

Some complaints I've heard about slip on grips is messy or difficult installation, and while they might not go on as easy as a lock on grip, I really don't think it's that difficult to glue, wire, or apply some hairspray to the bar to make them stick. Another trick I've been using is putting an old lock ring on the inboard side, and between that and the bar plug they don't move around on me, laterally or around the grip.

I used to ride Blenki style/sans gloves, but until I do a better job at staying upright I'll stick with gloves. The few rides I have done without gloves have been around the pump track or shorter rides, and either way there is no shortage of grip, even while raining or with sweaty gloves in the summer. Highly recommended!

the best grip ever !

The Good:

the compound keeps getting better over the time no lock ons cheap

The Bad:

so easy to break not everyone install them correctly

Overall Review:

By far the best grips that are used, the compound is the best that exists and as you use it gets better. I had to stop using them after they broke me in an enduro race and I had to finish 4hrs without a grip,I would like Renthal to have a single lock grip as ODI with this compound. I ride gloveless.

The perfect grip

The Good:

Great bar feel, wear and price

The Bad:

The installation and removal

Overall Review:

I've run race face half Nelson, ergon enduro factory and dmr deathgrips to try lock on as the ease of installation and removal were appealing. They had their hits and misses but were all too thick and stiff after push on grips, promoting arm pump and a vague feeling in comparison.

I can totally understand how people may not have the same issues or may prefer a mushroom style push on but the kevlar compound renthal push on grips hit the spot for bar feel, vibration damping and size on the bar perfectly for me. I'm 6 feet 1 tall and they're not too thin on the bar at all and offer sensational grip and wear with gloves (I never ride without). 

As far as the bad is concerned it's a matter of opinion, I like the flanges, the length and the screw in bar plugs (rather than an outside clamp). I'm happy to live with glueing the grips on and wiring them after that to get the security of fit I need. I run an alloy bar so cutting the grip off doesn't really worry me either and as such the sacrifice is simply time (the curing of renthal glue overnight).

This is a five star product in my mind and although I'm happy to accept contact points are a personal preference if you're having any issues with arm pump or grip at the bars I'd recommended these grips as a cheap first attempt to help get past them.
