Least favourite feature?Not very durable when you bin it.
Love these grips! The super chunky size is perfect for someone with larger than the average hand. I've used grips in the past that have resulted in pressure pain down the outside of my palm, not with these silicon bad boys. Straight forward installation and they don't move when installed.
Favourite feature?Ease of installation (use the alcohol method), colour choice.
Least favourite feature?Foam density not consistent between black and coloured models e.g. red grips were harder/denser than my black grips.
Different Foam Density?
Have used various models of the ESI grips - chunky, extra chunky & ergonomic (all in black colour) and found them very comfortable. Really liked the extra thickness of the extra chunky model so purchased a red pair to match my bike colour. Have found that the red grips are much firmer/denser than my black extra chunkys do. Queried the MTB direct staff and they couldn't do a comparison between coloured and black grips for me? Bizzare? If you're after a grippy and comfortable grip the extra-chunkys are the way to go, maybe just not the coloured versions?
Favourite feature?excellent grip and reduces vibrations throught the hands.
Least favourite feature?They are tricky to fit (need to follow the instructions to a T
These grips are great! This is my second set, the first ones lasted about 2 years being used 4 or 5 times a week. I bought them to reduce pins and needles in my hands on longer rides and they worked well.
