Had a idea on a product that may be useful to mtbing and just wanted to gather some opinions from you lot.

Basically the idea is to get more grip on the brake levers. Firstly is this needed? I know gloves provide some grip.

The idea is to have an adhesive rubber strip that can be stuck on your brake lever with is nobbled to provide more grip.

Do you think this is something that would be useful, sellable?

any thought would be appreciated.

Cheers

Dean
