Hi,

I have an issue with grip,s the last pair I brought lasted less than a year before the rubber has degraded into a horrible sticky mess that attracts grime like no ones business.

I can clean the grime off but the grips just get stickier and stickier.

I always ride with gloves, so its not a reaction to hand grease/sweat.

My last pair were Lizard Skins Peaty Lock On Handlebar Grips brought May last year and the pair before were Race Face Strafe Lock-On Handlebar Grips brought ~18 months before.

Anyone got any suggestions for grips that won't do this?

I use Troy Lee Designs lock on grips:

I find they ride really well but only had them a few months so can't comment on the sticky rubber issue as of yet (being as we haven't really had proper summer weather and I've only been out riding with them about 10 times).

However no issues at all so far with them and I always ride with gloves like you.
