    Grip it and rip.

    The ESI Chunky Mountain Bike Grip delivers you a cush ride with excellent control in all conditions. The Chunky is constructed with ultra-grippy silicone, which not only secures your hold but also does a superb job of absorbing vibration. The silicone also gives you a custom fit by molding to the unique shape of your hand. ESI’s grips are offset (meaning they are slightly thicker on one side) to provide optimal vibration damping while still giving you precise steering. And with a medium thickness, the Chunky Mountain Bike Grip works well for most riders.

    Go to Grip

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These grips seem to make it on all of my bikes. I regular try others (love Ergons) but these make it on all of my flat bar bikes. I have some nerve issues in my hands, so grips and gloves are important to me. The ESI Chunkies do their job well.

    So Comfortable!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been using the ESI Chunky's for a couple months now and I am sold! Coming from always using lock-on grips (from Trek, Specialized and Yeti), these offer all the positives and none of the negatives. They offer plenty of grip and don't move once on the bars, and they offer enough cushion for long days in the saddle.
    The only drawback I've experienced is durability in the event of a fall, as the ends of mine have gotten torn.

    gripped

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Super comfy of course. Sure they're light but I don't really care about that. Pain to get on but there are a few methods for the madness. Also, try not to fall or clip tress or something like that because these grips can get ripped up pretty easily.

    Smooth

      Bought this in green to match my Dark Green/Lime Green Bronson after hearing about them from a friend. They're reasonably priced and I'm very happy with their ability to absorb vibrations for a smoother ride. As noted on the packaging, using Windex when putting them on helps a ton. The only thing holding this review back from five stars is my concern about its durability.

      Plush

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The only downside to these grips is the act of putting them on your handlebar. It's a pain. Once they are on there, everything is golden.

      They're plush, durable, and good looking. Can't ask for much more than that.

      Light and durable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had hand pain issues in the past. Once I switched to the ESI grips, my issues were just about taken away completely. Besides being comfy, the ESI grips are super light. Sometimes you can save 80grams in weight over other grips. Also, i have never had issues with the grips twisting or moving around on the bar.

      Light and durable

      I like them a lot, but only for XC

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The soft grips can save your hands from fatigue and possibly a bit of pain over the course of a bumpy XC race. And that's really what I use them for. However, when I'm on my trail bike I prefer lock-on rubber grips because of the security. They tend to last about 1/3 to 1/2 of the season before you need to replace them. Replacing is easy, and doesn't break your bank.

      Solid, no bullsh** grips.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      To echo everyone else, these grips carry a fantastic price and weight. You'll find them comfortable with or without gloves and installation was a breeze.

      I also appreciated the color choices in helping keep my whip looking sharp.

      Ultra-light, affordable.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am currently running the ESI's for the first time on my bike and I really like them. The silicon grips offer a comfortable surface whether you are riding with gloves or not. They are easy to clean and wont tear up the surfaces of your hand if you do forget your gloves on occasion.

      Like wrapping your hands around magic

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've been using ESI grips for quite some time now. I've tried others, and nothing has ever held a candle to my ESI chunkys. I've tried the racers edge and extra chunky; but the Chunkys- just like Goldilocks eating some pourage, is just right. Comfortable, Affordable, Light, Attractive. Pro Tip: Use compressed air to install and they will never move. The only downside is if you ride sans-gloves they can get slippery.

      Comfortable even without gloves

        So I consider gloves to be optional equipment. This means that my mountain bike grips need to be soft on my hands even over rough terrain. The ESI Chunky Mountain Grip is the best that I've used. They absorb the shock from rough trails without leaving raw spots on my glove-less hands (which traditional rubber grips often do).

        Highly recommended.

        No contour but nice squish

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I usually like some ergonomic to my grip, these are just round. That said, they have great squish so they do in a way form to your hand a bit. Most importantly they really soak up vibration over the longer rides better than a hard rubber compound. They are super light and cheap too, so they are my go to. Note -- do be sure to wash them with a soapy brush when you do the rest of your bike because the become a bit slick with dust build-up.

        Not For Me

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        While I understand all the love in the other reviews -- light, comfy, customizable length, etc. -- these just weren't for me at the end of the day. I prefer a grip with a bit more contour to fill the voids in my palm over the long haul. I also found these a bit slippery when the going got wet.

        Compy and secure

          I cut them to size and use them with SRAM grip shifters. They decrease hand fatigue, are comfortable and stay in place. They are a little fatter than typical grips which I find more comfortable. A big improvement in my enjoyment of riding at little cost
