Pros: Lock-on: insanely easy to change them out
Soft rubber: easy to hang on to and doesn't bring about hand/wrist fatigue on long rides
Thumb notches: makes accessing the shifter levers much easier

Cons: "INTENSE" is imprinted on your hands after riding for a while. Not really, but I can't find any thing "wrong" with these grips.

Recommendation: Picked these up dirt cheap from Pricepoint, Jenson or Nashbar and don't regret it at all. Lock-on is so freakin' simple to install it isn't funny. The grips are comfortable and definitely a worthwhile adjustment over most stock grips. I broke the left outer cover on an off a while back and bunged up the grip pretty well. There isn't much chance for repair or piecing things together, so I need to pick up another set if I feel compelled to.

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Lock on
Soft compound rubber
3/4 Donuts

Cons: Soft compound rubber wears quickly

Recommendation: The soft rubber is nice for the grip and comfort however it wears rather quickly. Lock-on is the greatest thing ever. These grips are wide. Also, the 3/4 donut keeps your hands on the grips but has a part missing so your thumb shifter doesn't rub.

Pros: Easy to change out grips. Grips stay put! Very tough, and moderate price. The anodized looks good also!

Cons: I dont dislike anything about these grips.

Recommendation: I have these on 3 of my bikes and they have held up great. I wish ODI still sold the old style end caps that came with mine. These are the best grips I have used so far.
