    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.

    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.

      Smooth Ride

        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.

        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

          surprisingly good

          • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

          I had seen these around on pretty nice builds and was curious as to why put on such a cheap grip. Well in this case cheap only applies to the price which makes them even cooler. They hold up well, they feel great even after some miles. And if you crash em out it won't break your heart.

          Comfty grip

            These grips are comfty. I used them on my main rig but ended up replacing them with Lock-ons. I change out my components a lot... Like a lot a lot. When I do that, it's painful to get them off to put in new shifters or brakes. Putting them on is butter if you use alcohol. Taking them off is a little bit of a pain, even when I'm using compressed air.

            They last pretty long if you don't run into trees. If you're the type to just slap these on your bike and have them on for a while, I highly recommend them. If you plan on replacing components, or you crash into trees a lot (like me) then you might want to try lock-ons :)

            Go To

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            I was skeptical that a non-locker would stick to the bar well enough to keep my hands in place. I've been on less comofortable lock-on grips since I got my first real mountain bike but after moving to ESI Chunky's a few years ago, I won't go back. These will be on every mountain bike I build for the foreseeable future.

            BEST GRIPS OUT THERE

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            I have ridden and raced with these grips for several years now and have had little to no problems with them. They are super grippy with gloves no matter the condition, without gloves they can get a little slippery if your hands are wet. They are super comfortable, my hands never get sore down rough trails or get blisters. If instructions are followed to get them on they aren't super tough to get on and they won't move after that! Definitely my most preferred grip out there no matter what the ride or condition.

            Love These Grips

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            I love these grips so much I prefer to ride with no gloves. My hands stick to them like glue and no issues with blisters after hours of riding. They are a bit of a pain to get on, but they do not move around on the Santa Cruz carbon handlebar. I only wish they came with a metal end caps that would hold up longer then the plastic.

            Love These Grips

            Good grips

            • Familiarity:I've used it several times

            Grips are an easy way to soften up a ride, great comfort. Used to soften up a ride on a kids mtn bike that didn’t have a lot of travel/suspension. Easy install, not a lot of bulk so good for people with average to small hands.

            Surprising

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            It's obvious that these are squishy and absurdly comfy on long rides, but what surprised me was how grippy they are. I thought I'd be sacrificing some comfort at high speeds, but they do not move around on my bars at all and have insane grip with my gloves. I wound up in the rain recently with them, and they even stayed grippy when wet! Much more so than normal grips. Worth trying for sure, you just met use them the rest of your life.
