    Grip weights?? (non-foam)

    Anyone know of a listing of the weight of different grips? I found this link but most of the grips listed are ancient. I know there are a lot more grip choices now.


    I'm looking for alternates to my ODI Rouges. I tried ESI Chunkies but they aren't grippy enough for my liking. Anyone have any recommendations?

    That WW link is to the old listings, the newer version can be found here: fairwheelbikes.com • View topic - Weight Listings 2006 to Present

    Toutes les pièces vélo de la categorie Grip sur le BikeSumo Vélo Vert You can find the actual weights of many parts on that site. Velo Vert is a french mag which release a special "parts and bikes weighted" edition each year. You can trust them.

    What are you going for? usually grippy and lightweight dont go together
    Something wrong with your bike? Blame it on super human strength and sleep well at night knowing you are more than a man.

    I think the Ergon EA-1 Evo grips are pretty "grippy". Obviously on the heavier side, but are lockon.

    I use ESI chunky most of the time and never have issues.

    Any reason for non-foam? (This is a WW subforum after all.)

    Shimano Pro Race grips are really light for lock on. They were the lightest i could source, before buying lizard skin's new DSP mountain grip.

    I have had the Pro and didn't like them. They're really too thin (29 mm diameter), which explains in part why they're (so) light. Even if I don't have big hands, I like grips in 32-33 mm size. IMO, theses grips must be reserved to small-handed people or dirt jump, where small diameter grips are favored.

    I just got some Stella Azzura grips out of my "spares" box. I think I got them from chainlove at some point. Weighed in at 29g ( listed at 48g), are super grippy, and have almost no give to them.

    You might consider grips from Ergon or similar, that offer more palm contact. This allows for a relaxed grip in most riding conditions. The problem is that even the lightest of these (the GS1 in the case of Ergon) will be 146-155g.

    ERGON BIKE ERGONOMICS

    This type of shape is also a matter of taste - seems folks either love or hate 'em.

    I have a pretty new pair of GS1s, but they're just not for me. Was trying to sell them, but if you're interested Pekka I'll send them to you for free, assuming shipping isn't crazy. PM me if interested.

    You don't...you take care of your body and accept that you're bike is going to suffer a 100g penalty for preserving your health.

    I have to wear medical compression stockings full time to deal with circulation problems...no matter how hot it is outside. They're not pretty, or comfy, but beat the hell out of open ulcers. We do what we have to.

    Take a look at Lizard Skin DSP grips. They do a 30mm and 32mm both under 30 grams per pair. Not foam, at least not totally foam and they go on with an adhesive tape that keeps them put really well.
