Designed with help from freerider Cameron Zink and made by ODI, these grips from Sensus are super-thin, and the wavy pattern is great to hold with or without gloves. They’re not too slippery when wet either.
The flanges have cut marks for use with a shifter, which we used and were perfect. You can completely cut the flange off if it’s not your thing. The grips weren’t easy to get on, but once on the bars, they stayed there surprisingly well, considering they're not lock-ons. The end caps included are super-long and fit into the bar well, so a simple scuff won’t just pull them out.
