    I guess, I just thought the might be interesting. I often "lay my hands" on the bars during long rides on easier sections of trails, but still fear that during summer months when the sweat is pouring I will hit a bump and off I go. Not happened yet, but I have played it out in my head

    I don't see the point in spending $25 on those, like man.cave said, whenever my hands get tired I just rest my palms on the grips. I'm sure whoever invented those is making bank though, they've gotta be cheap as hell to produce.

    Im sure they don't cost much to make, but being that the company started January 2014 and the patents, purchasing the molds etc. I would bet they have some money invested.

    I bought a pair. They are simple, maybe a little overpriced for some molded plastic, but they work as advertised and give you another stable hand position on the bars. The difference is that you feel like you are in control of the bike, not just resting your hands on top of the bars.

    And you can use the brakes, too.

    My favorite mountain bike accessory? No. But they work as advertised. I have them on my gravel grinding monster-cross 29er and I really like them.

    I use that hand position all the time...without any add-ons. I don't understand what benefit they bring as I can put my hands there just fine without them.
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    Guess I should dust off the Onzas...bar ends are back! Just kidding of course. I just roll my thumbs up on top of the bar and rest my hands flat across the top of my grips when I need a break.

    Huh... these seem like they'd be worth the try...

    However, I can't help but think they are one more piece of gear to impale myself with.
