    My local bike shop has the Oury lock on & Lizzard Skin North Shore lock on in stock, so it will probably one of these. Thanks for the help.

    Like the others said, Ourys and Rogues.. I've been running the Rogues for about 6 years now and keep going back because they are super durable and feel good on my palms. The Ourys are nice, but not as durable due to the softer rubber from my experience.

    Are the Rogues as big as the Ourys?

    The Rogues are a bit smaller, but not by much. There are a couple of other things to consider, the since the Oury's rubber is a little softer, they aren't a very good wet conditions grip because they get soft and slide a bit on your hands. They are super cushy though...

    Sunline seems to be coming with some very nice products. I saw the offering of large grips, very nice indeed.

    They have a DH stem out claimed lighter than a Thomson and thier v-one pedals look like contenders... I think I'm going to trick out my next trail bike in their stuff.

    You are probably holding the grips too tight. A good glove can help also.

    i have huge hands too and the best i have found are the Salsa juegos de fuegos. They fit youro hand nicely since they are barrel shaped and bulge in the middle.

    id say go for the ourys... ive got a pair on my dh bike and theyve held up realy well... before i had ruffians and i found that they wore out too quikly and were not very comfortable

    after the switch to the ourys i found that my hands didnt cramp as much and that i could hold on with slightly less pressure and still not worry about slippage (soft rubber + leather palmed gloves = )

    I bet Race Face good n evils are largest (correct me if I'm wrong). They are huge and domed in center. Lock on? - don't know.

    I went out & bought the oury lock on. Couuld be a little bigger, but a lot better than what I had. Grippy, but a little flexy, so far I would say I like them though.

    The Rogues aren't as flexy as the Ourys, but are the same diameter. If you find you want wider grips, I run the BMX wide version, about 1/2 inch wider than normal (143mm width):
