    Got a pair in the spring, been riding for about 3 months now. Love them! much more comfortable than my old Oury and ODI. It took 2 rides of thinking with the position to get it right, but they provide a better grip feeling and more sense of control. Well worth the money.

    i like thin grips, i use sram lock ons, what you have pictured is thin too. decide if you want thick or thin or ergo and buy accordingly.

    Just curious, what constitutes an AM Grip for you?

    Personally, I like a grip that has a larger diameter than normal. Lizard Skin North Shore grips are great if you don't like the pencil grip feeling that some other grips have.

    An all mountain grip is a little more flickable than an xc grip, but lets you climb much better than a free ride grip.

    Basically, it is a grip for a beginner that has enough money to buy a bougie full suspension bike to compensate for a lack of skill/experience. Kind of like a dirt oriented Fred grip. They use grips like this all over the West Coast. Duthie Hill here in the Seattle area is a great place to use a AM grip, and you see them on lots of AM bikes on bootcamp.

    The Renthal Kevlar grips are amazing, unfortunately they are not yet available in a lockon version.

    Clearly my North shore grips are freeride grips- that's obviously what's been slowing me down on the uphills!

    I have the ODI X-Tremes on my AM and DH. They hold kinda thin like the Ruffian's, but have the raised elongated sections that let you grip securely without "death-gripping."

    +1 I like thin grip too. I'd go for ODI Ruffian or Ruffian MX, mid size thickness would be Rogue.:thumbsup:

    Lizard Skins Northshore.

    Because real men have big hands and need chunky grips. All you girls with small thin grips... pschhhhhhh....

    best reply right here. i dont know about other riders out there but once im riding I dont think about the grips that are on my bike and if im riding with gloves on i really cant tell if the grips are good or bad.
