    Rev grips vs. fat silicone?

    Trying to dampen some vibration w/ a grip change. Anyone compare Rev grips to any of the fat silicone offerings? Looking @ these grips :

    The lock on silicone grips look pretty nice, plus you don't have the headache of install. Buy almost 3 pairs for the price of the Rev Grips.

    60$, and replacement rubbers are 25. Expensive for grips, cheap for suspension or plastic handlebar that doesn't do anything.

    I haven't used them, but i haven't read anyone using them and being disappointed. I'd like to borrow some. I'm running silicone grips (esi chunky) like the klampz, but my XL hands aren't big enough for the 34mm 'extra chunky,' and the klampz is even wider at 35mm. Lock on grips are like having an automatically larger bar diameter.

    I like silicone grips a lot, too bad they explode when you strike a tree.

    The foam gets a little sweat-logged climbing w/ bare hands, sometimes more slippery compared to other grips. Thought they were closed cell when I first tried the esi

    i found these as well, little thinner than the 35mm O.D. Redmonkey's : https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...s.php?id=70222

    my current grips are 32mm but I'd think you would want larger Silicone grips because they compress?

    Vibration? Checked shock and tire psi first? Tried a double wrap of bar tape?

    I absolutely love my Red Monkey Klampz! I put them on everything. Pretty much cured my numb palms unless I'm out for hours.

    I just bought a set of Rev pro grips. I can't wait to try them out on the trail.

    Grips are a good place to cut weight imo. Several options out there that will save up to 100g on some of the ones listed in this thread.
