We’re big fans of the finish and the skimpy 102g weight of these CrankBrothers grips. The Kraton rubber is not only grippy but provides a decent amount of cushioning to help keep hands fresh when you’re out mashing the miles.
The teardrop-shaped collars give your mitts some added support should you hold the bar right at the ends. We’re not huge fans of the T10 Torx bolts used in the collars, though. They may avoid any rounding out issues but many multi-tools don’t feature a T10 so they could also cause problems out on the trail.
