Brooks release shorter version of Slender grips

100mm version ideal for Brompton riders

Brooks have released a shorter version of their Slender leather handlebar grips.  A full 30mm has been shaved off from the regular Slender grips meaning a new 100mm width, a move brought on by demand from mostly Brompton owners.

Primarily designed to benefit users of Brompton M-Series handlebar, these will also come as good news to anyone running narrow messenger-spec bars.

Like the larger versions these are Italian made and feature replaceable tape. Colour options stand at aged, honey, brown, and black. They'll set you back €65, around £55 (UK pricing TBC) or $90, depending on where you are.
