Description

Brap brap!!

When we were kids, grips that slid around your handlebars were kind of cool. We could pretend we were on motorcycles with genuine throttle-action grips. These days, however, those slippy grips have lost their charm. ODI Troy Lee Designs Lock-On Grips have brought the slippy-grip era to an end. These clamps stay put so you can get down to the serious business of riding your bike. ODI Grips have charms that aren't seen but felt. The soft rubber blocks are designed to cushion the blow that even the longest-travel fork can't absorb. And since each block has a subtle file texture, they work great with gloves or without. The lock-on clamps guarantee the grip won't move until you want them to. They come with the clamps, hardware, and end caps. ODI Grips come in one size. They're available in Yellow/grey, Glow/black, Orange/black, Pink/black, Yellow/purple, Red/black, Turquoise/blue, Black/grey, and White/red.

colors!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

OKAY.... Okay.... okay.... I admit it. I like to accessorize the grip color on my bike.

There, I said it.

Publicly.

It's true.

That being said.... I love the color options, but I am not totally in love with these grips.

Sad face.

It's personal preference.

It's not you. It's me.

I like to use every mm of my handlebars, so I do not like the extra flange on the ends of these grips. I might as well have kept my previous bars and grips at this point. For now I just rotated them so that the smoothest end is aligned where my palm hits the edge. If it weren't for the lock-on AND the grip flare taking up space it might not be so bad, but it just doesn't seem like a logical use of space.

For most rides I find them comfortable and grippy, and I do wear gloves. Generally a size medium -on the larger side for a female hand, but small compared to most dudes- as far as hand/grip diameter goes.

I will still use these until they wear out, but may go back to the ODI Ruffians, Lizard Skins Chargers, or investigate other options for my personal preference like the new SC Palmdale.

I'm a fan

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As the review below me says, grips are all personal preference. That said, these are definitely quality grips so if they are the right size/shape for you you will not regret getting them. They're medium thickness I would say. I have fairly big hands, so these are what feels like a thin grip to me. I had the Lizard Skin Peatys once and found those to be excessively thin, for reference.

The little ridge they have on the inside is a pretty nice touch. Not as obtrusive as the big moto style grips, but a little support to let you know where you're at.

If you like the looks of these, give them a shot! I got the glow color and they do indeed glow in the dark which is neat I suppose, and during they day they're a nice white/translucent color.

Personal preference

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Over the years, I've found the ODI Ruffians to be perfect for my hands and I understand they're popular, so this review is for people who are already fans of the Ruffians.

These are thicker than the Ruffians, so if you like the thickness of the Ruffians, I would not recommend these. Unlike the Ruffians, the TLDs have more pronounced grip nubbins, which seems like they would last longer because of this, but may be uncomfortable compared to the Ruffians. It will take a lot longer time for these to become "smooth" because of this.

Because there is more rubber on these grips, they are slightly softer, which may add some comfort to some.

As for grip, they are grippy with gloves and they remain grippy throughout my ride. When Ruffians wear and the texture smooths out, they tend to get a little more slippery, but I dont think these will have that problem.

Otherwise, they are as advertised and do a great job if your hands prefer something larger and softer than Ruffians.

My hands are stuck to my bars!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's hard to type this with my hands stuck to the bars on my bike, these things are that grippy! Some of the nicest looking, stickiest grips I've owned. I got them in white and red and only discovered one downfall. When my chain came off on a ride, after putting it back on, I touched the grips and instantly realized why white grips weren't a great idea. But some Dawn dish soap after the ride cleaned them right up!

Cool Colors

I'm a huge fan of ODI for mountain biking and Lizard Skins for road. I use these on my hard tail and fat bike because I'm a little more weight conscious on it than my dual suspension. The rubber is sticky and the blocks are low pro.

Grippy

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

The lady needed some new grips for her ride... I think she was just sick of the boring black ones. What ever the case, she is rockin' these out to the fullest. She's a gloved rider and says they've got killer grip. Hope these last longer than her Ruffians did.

Aside from what's listed, can you choose the grips and end cap colors?

Unfortunately, no. Even on ODI's website, they don't have the option for custom combos.
