    Any of the "foam" type grips will be light. ESI Racer's Edge or Chunky and Ritchey WCS are very popular and a safe place to start.

    Ultimate WW grip is no grip at all. A tin layer of electric tape and you're good to go.

    Go with ESI grips. I had KCNC foamies, nice and comfy but if they get wet they throttle.

    ESI grips stay put and are just as comfy.

    You should try Bontager Race X Light, best choice for me.

    x2 for the Bontrager XXX Lite,but for big handed riders might feel too thin.
    Very durable and stays in place in the wet,confirmed weight is 15 grams.
    Gajas what?
