Bought these grips to replace a more typical ODI-style grip with clamps on both ends. I wanted a grip that gave me a useful surface all the way out to the edge of the bars, and these provide just that. Without the metal lock ring at the edge, these are much easier on my palms. The grip has a tacky thin feel which is great.

The main complaint I have is that because there is no lock ring on the outer edge, the rubber there does not feel as solidly locked to the bar as I would like. It rotates around the bar slightly during rides, which makes me feel like I have less control over the bike. If you don't ride with your hands at the very edge of the bars, you aren't likely to notice any issue.

I love how sticky these grips are. Your hands will not slip. Unfortunately, the entire grip will. The tube is a little oversized and wen clamped down to carbon bars at 5NM they will slip. I ended up coating the bar with a light layer of rubber cement then sliding the grips on. This was the only way to keep them from slipping once tightening up the single clamp. To save weight there is only one clamp. I now know why most use two clamps. However, the rubber cement has been working, just not sure over the long term. I did buy two sets and both sets act the same. One on a carbon Niner bar and the other on a carbon Easton EC90 bar. I would say that these would probably work great on an alloy bar, but even clamped down, the inner plastic tube is so thin that it allows the grip to twist even with the clamp not moving. I would recommend somehow gluing them to the bars so they don't move. Rubber cement seemed best to me because it could easily be removed if needed.

      Comments about Race Face Half Nelson Lock On Grips:

      Great upgrade over stock grips. I bought these to replace my worn out grips on my trail bike and bought a second pair for my hardtail to replace the stock grips. I have experienced stock grips sliding around on the handlebars and the lock rings prevent that.

        I bought these instead of the ODI TLD's that seems like everybody is running because they look better and the single grabber seemed enough for me. These have a great sticky feel all the way to the end of the bar and the color matched my build perfectly. Love RF's products.

          Comments about Race Face Half Nelson Lock On Grips:

          These were on my rigid Surly 1x1 when I bought it. They're super easy to hold on to, and extremely minimal. But after long rides my hands would start to get sore, so I swapped them out for Oury ODI Lock-Ons.

          If you like thin grips that are easy to hold on to, these are perfect. If you're riding rigid like me, you probably want something with better shock-absorbing properties.

                  These race face grips are very thin and super comfortable. The one sided lockon holds the grip in place nicely without slipping and it saves a tiny bit of weight too. Bottom line, if you like very thin grips, this product is a winner!
