    Recommend a squishy grip for long bike park days

    Hello. I have been riding Ergon GE1s this season. They are great for really feeling the trail but I am feeling a bit too much on bike park days. I don't feel like I am riding with a death grip so I am hoping there is something out there that would take away the sting. I use fox dirtpaw gloves. Maybe different gloves?

    Oury.

    One of the biggest problems I've noticed is that any bolt-on type grips use much thinner grip material, so they end up stinging more and providing less grip. I went back to using regular grips, not bolt-on, just due to this. I think it works better.

    REVGRIPS were a game changer for me, but they are pretty expensive.

    I just ordered a set of Deity Supracushes and Lockjaws to compare. Hoping the Supracushes will work but I have smaller hands. Its a 2mm differences so I don't think I will notice that much.

    Another highly personal choice, but flangeless DMR DeathGrips have blown my mind. Iím a convert, and I have very sensitive hands.

    The inner most parts of the grips are soft as clouds.

    Another Deity Supracrush user. Just switched over from knucledusters. Comfy. However good luck finding anything Deity in the color you want.

    ESI Chunky. Oury just about as good, flanged traditional slightly cushier than lock-on.

    ESI Chunky here, and I run wolfstooth fat paws, which are a harder silicone foam.

    BEST most comfortable grips have been the 2 dollar china silicone foam grips. They have the softness of the ESI and lasted a long time. Bought 6 pair and will last me years and thousands of miles

    I like soft grips, but IME these aren't all that soft, they are large and relatively stiff. I use the slim-line ones on my XC and fat-rigs, but I like gobs of soft grip for enduro/DH and IME, these are not that.
