    They don't move if you install with rubbing alcohol.

    Pros
    Light weight. Vibration dampening. Economical.

    Cons
    Can get dirty when when crashing. Can be difficult to install.

    These perform great in all weather conditions and have held up to the abuse I've thrown at them. They give the grip that I need. If they were a bit thicker 5 stars.

    Pros
    Lightweight
    Great Grip
    Durable

    Cons
    Could be a bit thicker.

    The ESI Chunky grips did not live up to expectations. While they offer good shock absorption and a light profile, they did not last a weekend of riding. Unfortunately, the dreaded "throttle" grip reared it's ugly head in the middle of one of the first rides. Durability appeared to be an issue as there was noticeable wear after the first few rides. It may have just been an isolated bad experience and/or installation; but grips are far too important to miss on...

    Pros
    - light
    - variety of colors for the fashion conscious
    - shock absorption

    Cons
    - durability
    - "throttle" grip
    - customer service
    - felt greasy when wet (sweat and water)

    Pros
    Easy to install. Shock absorption is good. Price.

    Cons
    A little slick when when from sweat or rain. Not very durable if grips come in contact with trees.

    Pros
    I have the "Extra Chunky" ones (perfect size). They absorb vibrations extremely well, inexpensive, they do not slip.

    Cons
    I bought the "Extra Chunky" ones. I just love them. They are the perfect size, they absorb vibrations extremely well, and they do not slip. No more fatigued hands on those long epic rides.
    They are a bit troublesome to install because they are a tight fit. I used Windex so that made the installation a bit easier. Once they are on and have dried over night, they will not slip at all, ever!
    The hard plastic end caps that come with these are garbage. I bought "Origin8 Rubber Handlebar Bar End Plugs" from Ebay, and they were a perfect replacement for these.

    They are great if you don't swap out bars often, need to be thicker though

    Pros
    Comfy
    Stays in place

    Cons
    Not easily removed
    Not thick enough

    I love these grips! Grippy when wet and they don't slide around on you like most other (non-locking) grips. I had them on my kid's Schwinn 4-Banger & I had to have 'em on my Kona Bear! (I originally had the thinner ESI Racers Edge).

    Pros
    simplistic
    thick
    shock absorbing
    does not move or slide around on you

    Cons
    difficult to remove (also a pro?)
