    Need chunky lock-on grips, but not LS Northshore

    Heya,

    I am looking for a chunky grips for my hands with freakishly long fingers.

    I am now riding Lizard Skins North Shore, their thickness is OK. What I do not like on them is their looks, the fake wood pattern. Entire bike has a mechanical/synthetic look to it, and this fake wood pattern is just like a fist in the eye.

    So, this = bad:

    What I need is a chunky grip with a synthetic look.

    This is OK for the looks:



    But Acor grips are too thin. They are not chunky enough and I often manage to snag my glove fingertip under my palm when using normal thickness grips.

    Pretty please, show me some synthetic looking chunky grips. They need to be round, so no Ergon type asymmetrical grips.

    Thanks =)

    Have you considered ODI Rogues? They're a pretty chunky grip, fairly similar to the LS's you got pictured above (although, I'm saying this from only seeing your picture of the LS grips, I haven't actually seen them in the flesh).

    I use Rogues on pretty much all of my bikes - grip well, last for quite a while, and very comfortable

    ODI is all I run, they seem to have a bigger diameter which I like.

    Whoa... heard about the looks of things being important, but this is a first!

    Anyway, Oury Lock-ons...big fat grips with that "synthetic look".
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    Another vote for ODI Rogues. They also have ruffians which look like those acor grips above but they arn't as chunky as the rogues.

    Oury lock on are the biggest grips I used and they were really good.
    Universal Cycles -- Oury Lock-On Grips


    My favorite grips are the ODI SDG lock on grips.
    Universal Cycles -- SDG Hansolo Lock-On MTB Bonus Pack

    The Oury grips are fatter.

    I too used ODI Rogues, I love the feel of the grip, but I didn't like how much space is wasted with the outer lockring and the smooth, rubbery part that does not have the "tread" pattern. I find that my hands migrate to the edges of the grips on the downhill so part of my hand was on the not-so-soft portion. However, if the LS Northwhore worked for you, the Rogues should as well.

    I have since bought some Specialized Enduro XL's. They have a similar pattern to the Rogues, their is no second lockring taking up space on the end and they are a big diameter.

    I've been on ODI Rogues for years. Until today.

    ESI Chunky grips ftw.

    My hands always felt a bit sore after the ride and the grips were always a tad too thick, but anything else I've tried was either too thin or just uncomforable. (ODI Ruffian, SDG Hansolo, ODI Troy Lee, Oury lock-ons).

    The ESI Chucky grips are quite comfortable, although I was very skeptical about them at first and took me forever to try a pair. You won't be sorry.

    Can anyone comment on the ODI Yetis? They seem chunkier then the Rogues.

    +1. ive never thought, "damn these grips clash with my ride" while biking down the trail but i guess when you drop a couple thou some people need it perfect. anyways oury and spec enduro grips are both big and offer that blocky techno look you are after.

    Sunline Logo Lock-On: Makes a Thin and Thick version. Rode them for two seasons 2 years ago (XXL glove size and opted for the Thick pair) they were great. Good comfy feel to them, not a lot of feedback(vibration) from the Hbar, might not be around anymore, my 2cs

    Also take a look at the new Syntace Motos. They are meant to be available in different thicknesses to suit personal preferences.

    This seems to be the new Northshore -


    I am not really confident that they are good. This wasted space on the sides? What's up with that? Adn the huge vertical grooves. Hmm....

    Well ... you know ... when you run out of upgrades to buy, then you go into bizarre upgrades. The looks of top-cap on headset, the looks of grips and such.
