Lightweight but unrideable
Rating:
The Good
Lightweight, & the one-piece chassis can be salvaged as basis for another shot at doing it right.
The Bad
The most painful grip I've ridden in over 30yrs of MTB!
Overall Review:

The one-piece design has promise and saves weight vs. alloy collars: this version is a fail, but V2 could be a win SDG manages to turn up the damping and cushion factor by several orders of magnitude.
These grips offer next to zero cushioning or shock adsorption. To make matters worse, SDG has added a hard-plastic, beveled cap at the outer end of the grip, which doesn't just limit your hand positions, it literally cuts into your hand if you're used to gripping the end of the bar.
I'm a self-professed grip minimalist, but I took these grips off after two rides because they managed to produce *pain* within the first 15 minutes of riding that persisted the rest of both rides. There is no reason to subject yourself to this when for the same money you can have grips with the same diameter like the Santa Cruz Palmdale or Deity Waypoint grips, which offer far superior cushioning *and* let you slide your hands outboard to use every last mm of grip length *without pain.*
