I've tried all sorts and now settled on the ESI Chunky silicone grips - seem to fit my hands the best and they don't get as numb after a few hours.

I thought this thread was the complaints department... why is no one griping about stuff? Was sure this would be a massively popular thread around here...

ESI chunky is good. Had racers edge, too thin for me.

If you like foam, KCNC brough out coloured foamies a while back.

 

Have used Bontrager XXX lite foam grips - nice grips, can slip a bit so need to install them with hairspray etc. High density foam so bit harder but they don't push through onto the bars :thumbup:

If weight is not an issue, then try Lizard Skin lock-ons from CWC. You get two diameters. They are rebranded ODI grips. I did not like my ESI grips because they do not stay put like lock-ons do. The lightest lock-on grips out there are the Rav-X foam ones. About 50gr but they cost close to R200.

i have never used hairspray to install any of my grips , how does it work ? DO you just give it a good spray on the inside and slip them on ? i have always used lock on grips and before that i didnt realy care aslong as there was air in the tyres and the wheels was rolling i was happy

Yip should work but have not done it myself so maybe someone that has done it can comment ?

ESI fits using an air compressor.

 

I find lock-on grips way too hard.

OURY grips are a bit thick for me but nice and soft.

Also look at Ergon if you do looong rides

I put a pair of these Ryder grips on my fixie, but doubled up on the bar tape that it came with. Very comfy. About R135, I think.

grips are like saddles... your personal choice

 

I love my lizard skin chargers (non lock-on)

I just buy the Prince handle grip (for squash racquets etc) from Sportsmans for about R60.

I had the same grips on my commuter bike and replaced them with ESI Chunky grips this week.

 

I prefer the thicker grips and the smoother surface less abrasive on my gloves.
