Cons: -Dirt and muck sticks in between the grooves and latice pattern making it difficult to clean.
Recommendation: Over all a very good grip for those with larger hands. The grip pattern is not irritating on bare hands. The rubber compound is soft enough to be comfortable with good vibration absorption.
As I mentioned in the cons it's a pain to clean while attached to the bike, but it is easily removed it can be soaked and scrubbed for a nice squeaky clean.
Pros: -Thick rubber
-Comfortable as can be
-Grip for days
-No signs of wear
Recommendation: 6 months is usually the longest life I'll get out of grips. These are going on a year of hard riding and show no wear. They are really fat so they make gripping them easier for larger hands. The thick rubber is really comfortable as well.
Pros: Great grip
Easy to install
Recommendation: I love the grips. They are comfortable, grippy, and I have never had them slip. I like how you can customize with different color locks. It does say right on the package, do not over tighten! Snug them down and they will be just fine.
Pros: Sticky grips
Plush enough to suck up some shock
Cons: Absolutely nothing
Recommendation: Been riding the same pair for 3 years and won't even consider changing to anything else. Get yourself a nice pair of gloves to go with because these are a little knobby for comfortable barehanded rides.
Recommendation: These are the first pair of lock-ons I've use on my current bike, and I wish I had made the move long ago. The hardest part of installation is getting the caps to pop into place (not that hard, really). After that, installation is a breeze. I've been riding them for a couple of weeks and although they are a bit firmer that what I had, I like the feel, and I like that they are a little bigger than what I had before. All in all, a great grip for me. Recommended.
