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.

            Great grips. Only problem is that they're not double locking so it helps to spray hairspray on the bars before you put them on so they won't shift while riding

                    These grips look great and provide great grip without being "sticky". The only fault I have with them is the raised bars above and below the "Race Face" logo can become somewhat uncomfortable after a long ride.
