    Slightly different concept, but quite the same, I have ran ODI on my race quad for years.
    I ran them one year, fell in love, then got sponsored by them shortly after. I use the 130mm rogues on the quad and going to use the same on my mtb. I have small hands but I like a little larger grip. Helped me with arm pump when I was riding. And the locking part of it is awesome.
    Riding in the mud and muck, I use to have to wire my grips to keep them from slipping. Since going to locking grips, never had one move. Very easy to change as well!

    They're pretty soft which is a plus. The only downfall is their price for most people. Depending on where you get them, they can be fairly expensive for grips.

    Use ODI's on both my bikes.... can't say they are the best but for me they worked better than other models I tried. YMMV

    I was wanting to try some of the Lizard Skins North Shore grips but, apparently, they are not making them anymore. They have disappeared from their web site.

    [Edit:] Check that. Just googled and found that they are still available; just redesigned, as are their Moab grips. And they are listed on the Lizard Skin web site.

    My vote goes to Odi Rogues.

    The worst grip goes to THE industries, look good but pure crap, thin, hard and crap compound of rubber.
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    I have the Portland Design locking grips



    Available in just about any color but offer good comfort and a little extra bling.

    I think this is the best grip in town. :)

    I think this is the best grip in town. It is light at 20g. and comfortable too.

    Oury Lock-On's.
    I've ran thin and chunky ESI and the Ergons...I always go back to Oury's. The balance of grip, thickness and vibration damping is hard to beat

    I second the Ergon's. When you're old like me your hands can fall asleep more on the trails. These really help. A lot. Best grips I have ever used. I never thought I would like them, but I won't buy anything other than these. Just my 2 cents.

    I'd try the new crop of adjustable diameter AM grips - smaller and lighter for the way up, fatter for the downhill. The best come with a remote.

    get any lockons that look good to you and some decent gloves, I prefer the thinnest gloves possible as the more padding the faster my hands fall asleep. I'd go gloveless but I've had some jacked up hands after crashes before. Other prefer the thickest gloves they can find, you will probably fall somewhere in between...

    I own ODI, Oury, Lizard skins, Ergon, and WTB grips. My favorite by far are my lizard skins northshore and logo lock on grips.

    Saddle mounted remote, I hope?

    I hear they can create a feedback loop with the seatpost though.




    To contribute something useful, I run ESI grips (chunky version) on 2 of my bikes, and like them a lot. I don't like lock-ons, never saw the need.

    The ODI Rouges are my favorite lock on, however I run the ESI Chunky grips on all of my bikes now. Super comfy, and inexpensive. However, they tear easy on wrecks or if you're not careful.

    ODI Rogue. They have larger grips and are built for larger hands.
