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