    Comments about Lizard Skins 494 Grips:

    I have owned several pairs of these grips and i will continue to get more. Hand fatigue is something we all feel at least a few times as mountain bikers but these grips greatly reduce that for me. They are slide on grips so naturally they have more soft rubber than their lock on counter parts. Because of this, they absorb vibrations better and there fore reduce the stress to your hands. However, they are slide-on so getting them on can be tricky but i have used them without adhesive, removed and reinstalled them with vary little movement while riding.
    I have used a pair for two seasons including lots of fairly aggressive park riding, tons of xc/trail days, and also dozens of long 2 hour descents in southern Oregon and they barely started to show signs of wear aside from a few crashes that lightly damaged the ends of the gips.

    Slimmer than I expected

    • Good Grip
    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • No padding

    Best Uses

    • Mountain Bikes

    Comments about Lizard Skins 494 Grips:

    Very minimalist grip, great gripping surface but no padding. Going from ergo grips to these was a big step down in size. Tight fit, which is a good thing when it comes to slide ons. Could not get them on my bar without using rubbing alcohol to reduce the friction. After the alcohol dried, the grips are SET and do not move. Cannot comment on longevity as I've only been on about 3 rides since installing them, but if they last a year, I've gotten my money's worth. Would buy again.

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Easy To Install
    • Firm
    • Slim

    Cons

    • Maybe Too Firm For Some

    Best Uses

    • XC

    Comments about Lizard Skins 494 Grips:

    I hang my hands out towards the ends of the handlebar, so I don't like aluminum lock-on collars there. I install my grips with clear spray paint, so slipping isn't a problem. The Lizad Skins are slim, firm and grippy. Unlike some others, I don't find them "soft" especially compared to gushy Serfas and the like. But they're close to perfect for me and offer great control. Sometimes simple is best.

    I bought the clear ones to match my Kore transparent pedals. It has a soft feeling to my hand. The other best brand I ever had is Da Bomb Holy Shut but this is the better ones. Only wish it comes in lock tight - you know the ones using allen key to tighten up.
