ESI grips changed the grip market when they burst onto the scene a few years back with their unique silicone compound.
The Silicone compound is grippy regardless of whether it is wet or dry. It's UV resistant, so it'll never become sticky, harden or fade like some rubber grips can. The silicone mateiral is extremely absorbant which reduces hand fatigue and arm pump.
While these aren't a lock on grip the silicone compound adheres to bar remarably well. You'll never have these grips "throttle".
You can wash these grips aswell.
For installation, simply rub the bar / grip with window cleaner or rubbing alchol and slide on, then leave to dry for 24 hours. Cuttable with a sharp pair or scissors or utitlity knife.
Proven worldwide for all riders including olympians!
Made in the USA, ESI chunky's are the most popular size. They also make a thinner "Racers Edge" grip, and a thicker "Extra Chunky" version.
If you're running grip shift, Chunky's are the perfect diameter to match up with your shifter..
