    Best Grip for Large Hands-Large Diameter (ODI Rogue alternative)

    The Rogue is great, but heavy and quite aggressive pattern. Many new grips have better pattern, one-clamp etc. but all too small diameter.

    Try a double wrap of bar tape. And heavy grips are holding you back?

    Brooks Plump Leather Grips are the largest round grips I know of. And while they are expensive, they basically last forever. I've used the same pair since 2011. Although they are murder on gloves.

    Holding the grip is dynamic, so I'm never really squeezing the grip for any extended length of time without terrain forcing a change of hand position. I guess I never really paid attention to diameter I just use BMX grips. I pick the length/pattern/rubber-feel that I like, and glue them on with 3M contact cement. I like the softer sticky rubber and the glue keeps them from moving on the bars. I've been doing this since the 1980's!


    Only exception to this above are the old Magura grips that flared in the center to fill your palm. These still pop up occasionally, and WTB had a low-flange version back in the day...

    Plain ol' Oury grips are pretty large.

    Padded gloves make narrower grips feel larger too ;-)

    Lizard skins makes a nice wider grip.

    Ha, I deserve that comment. Looking for a smoother grip, the Rogues are quite aggressive tread wise.

    I have had good luck with the Cromag Squarewave XL. They have a nice swell to them that fills the hand and are a couple mm wider than typical grips. Pattern is not overly agressive yet easy to keep a grip on.

    Heavy? Seems ballpark for a lockon. I guess you can save 15g or so going with ODI Pro Elite grips, which are my current favorites. Rogues aren't ergo enough for me, but I really like ODI rubber. Didn't like ESI Super Chunky, nor Ergons, mostly due to their material choice.

    I have XXL hands and really liked Lizard Skin grips : https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...8&category=710

    Last season I tried Red Monkey silicone style grips in the 35mm diameter and even though I have big hands they felt too big.

    Now I really like Gussets: https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...&category=2782

    Revolution Suspension Grips come in large which is 34mm. Pricey, and the whole suspension idea may not be what ur looking for (or want to pay for).
