    Big hands or small? I've been happy with the sunlines. . . I've had the waffle grips (lock on) as well as the thicker grips (bigger hands, I'm loving em). . .



    These look like they are new for '09



    And these one's have the thick or thin version. . .

    Oury lock-ons, the lock-on mech makes it a little thicker.

    Then the 661 Signatures . . . the ones on the bottom, come in a thick version. I love it, much better feel than the standard issue ones.

    However I have not tried many other grips, besides crap stock slip ons.

    I used to get numb hands...I always loved the old Mushroom grips on my BMXer as a kid...a few years ago I came across some Attack grips and as long as they make them, that's what I'm using. I did cut the ends off b/c I run bar ends on the ol' SSer.

    Why would I need more than one gear?

    Sunlines........The bottom set in Truckee's pics . I have the thick version on my sxtrail and the thin version on my DHR . I like them alot and feel better than the ruffians I was stuck on for so long.

    I will add that the big ones are indeed bigger than any grip I have laid eyes on.

    In this pick you can see the thick ones on my sxtrail.

    ESI grips - get the "Chunky" perfect for L/XL hands!

    http://www.esigrips.com/

    You can order direct or from Priceline.

    Ive had two Spec bikes and used the Enduro grips and others and love the ESI grips. Cool colors and they hold up real well to dirt etc. They are foam and can tear during rough upside down trail repairs, but I was cranking on a wheel hard and caused minor cut!

    I have the RavX ergo correct grips on both bikes, and will probably never go back. Got them for $15 at Javelina Cycles. A bit heavy, but they are lock on, and let me rest the wrists on the flat stuff.

    Ergon

    I'm surprised no one mentioned Ergon grips yet.

    I love mine and they helped my wife's numb hand. No comments please.
    I need to ride more and work less.

    Count me as another Ergon fan. The Large size (used to be called Mens) might work for you. Their packaging allows you to put your hands on them in the store. REI and various bike shops have them in stock. For me, the Small size (used to be called Womens) fit me better. Some people hate them, I like them. Have them on all my bikes and eagerly await the release of the GC3s.

    Oops, forgot to mention which Ergon I have. I currently have the GP1-S.

    Ergons are superlative. The GR2s allow me to ride 17+ hours at a stretch with no hand pain.

    A more traditional grip might suit the more freeride inclined, though once I got used to mine they've not detracted from technical experiences.

    ODI "Crosstrainer" FTW!

    For myself these grips are the best I have ever used, super soft and grippy but won't shred or wear out your gloves! They are also very thin large grips in the DH world cause more hand fatigue than thin ones. They feel like you are holding onto sticky handlebars not rough baseball bats.
