I'm wanting to try some new bars with a higher rise, this also means I need new grips as i'm still using the original kona ones that came on the bike, been looking at the Lizard skins peaty and ODI vans but what others does everyone recommend for durability and comfort?

I've had some Odi Rufians for a year now - wearing well and do the job - I guess any lock on is much like another.

My peatys are over two years old and still going strong, they have worn but still plenty of grip. Bought a second pair for when the first pair give up.

I have the ODI Vans grips and find them very good.

I did the C2C the other week but forgot my gloves and although my hands were sweaty I still found the grips to be grippy and comfortable.

Had some Lizard Skins on my old Five, when I bought my G-150 from LLBikes, I got a tonne of instore credit so I picked these as well, really comfy to hold on to and they just grip whether in gloves or bare hands.

Use those myself. 2 years of 50 miles a week and they look as good as new...apart from the anodising on the ends which has worn off a bit. The grips are soft, comfy and as good as the day I bought them.

Hi, just a quick question about the ESI chunky grips, how much bigger or how big is the outside diameter of the grip.
Many years ago An accident has left me with very restrictive movement in my left hand and I'm unable to make a fist as a result. I find tracks that are very rough give me severe cramp as I'm trying to grip handlebars/grips my fingers won't wrap around.
The ESI grips may help.
