The skinniest grips for cross-country racers
Skip to view product specifications

These are the slimmest grips we’ve ever used. They’re a nice length too – slightly longer than the classic ODI Ruffians.


When holding on tight, though, it feels like there just isn’t enough of them there. Ours slipped a bit under heavy use, but if you’re looking for the skinniest cross-country grips, this is them.
