Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Excellent ergonomics. Sticky grip even during monsoon. Never throttles. Extremely durable

Cons: Difficult to find in my area. The sticky insert begins to peel at 8000km. :-).

Recommendation: Buy these for long range hauls - forget about the extra grams, these things will all but eliminate the dreaded dead-hands

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Comfort
Great construction
Mountain Biking

Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Added comfort

Cons: takes time to get use to

Recommendation: My stock on my X-Caliber is pretty bad, my hands would hurt after rides. These didn't take away all the numbness I would get but it's make my rides more enjoyable.

Pros: Great for supporting the wrist.

Cons: None

Recommendation: I never knew that such a simple upgrade could make my mountain bike experience so much better. I recommend this product to anyone that has wrist pain after a bike.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Fit

Cons: Price if you don't value comfort

Recommendation: I love these grips because they are cushy enough that I don't have to wear gel gloves, but such a great fit that it doesn't feel bulky when I do. I feel so much more stable having a solid place to put my hands and it's helped me from over gripping on techy descents.

Pros: comfortable

Cons: price

Recommendation: These go on ever bike I ride. Can't live without them. If your hands or wrists hurt, go right out and get these. I like them just tight enough so that I can adjust them without a wrench on the trail.

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Very comfortable for long rides. Durable.

Cons: None

Recommendation: I've been running these for three years (12k miles) now which is recommendation enough as most grips only last around six months. They are also extremely comfortable.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Comfortable, durable, lock on

Cons: Heavy

Recommendation: I bought a set of these to try on my FS bike, and ended up with them on my SS too. They provide a lot of support for your hands, making longer rides more comfortable, especially with larger hands. With more to hold on to, you don't have to hold on as tight to have a good grip on things. These grips greatly increased my overall sense of control on the bike.
