    I tried rogues they look awesome and grip well. I started using trance grips out of a local giant dealer and they work awesome, the larger grips hurt my hands after most runs. I think you have to have pretty big hands to benefit from the rogues.

    I perfer the Rouges on all my bikes. I do have large hands though, which make most grips feel too small. However, I don't know too many riders that don't like the Rouges. They last a long time, grip awesome, and look like tire tread. And you can buy just the replacement grip portion, without the lock rings, for $8. Can't go wrong with that.

    dug the feel of my old oury's but too big for my little girl sized hands. same for the rougues which i found to be vague in feel to their overly squishy compound. finally found true love with the odi ruffian lock ons a few years back. now i have 3 or 4 sets. a very firm, comfy, grippy, easy to grab grip for us small folk.
    No, I'm NOT back!

    I had Ourys Rogues and really liked them then I switched to the Northshores and loved them even more.

    Now I'm on RaceFace Good&Evil non-lock and I love them the most-est by far. Thick and tacky, fatter in the middle, super comfy.

    I'm back on Rogues now, but a good alternative that's a touch smaller without being Ruffian small are the Pedros vice grips:

    +1 oury. Soft, cheap, get them on price point for about $7, glue them on, cut them off when you need to. Recently rode odi ruffians after a couple years on ourys, and couldn't stand the vibration transfered to my hands. I've gotten spoiled.

    I have smaller hands, so my favorite are the ODI Ruffians. I switched to the Rogues though because the Ruffians are not padded quite enough and I would get bruises on the palms of my hands.

    ODI Rogue BMX lock-ons 143mm (wider than standard 130mm) for my mountain bikes. Oury street bike grips for my motocross bikes (also wider than standard). Great grips for big mitts. If I had smaller hands I'd rock the ODI Ruffian BMX lock-ons.

    Odi Rouge. Big enough to fill my whole hand/palm without white knuckling the grip.
