The ODI Aluminum End Plugs provide a classy way to finish off the ends of your handlebar. No one likes an unplugged bar end. Unplugged ends introduce the elements to the inside of your bar, resulting in premature wear, and an unplugged bar just looks tacky. Make the upgrade from plastic to metal with these handy little upgrades from ODI.
Bar end caps shouldn't be a cost item on a bike. But every time I get a set with my grips they fall out at one point or another. I had a friend skewer himself with a bar end once, so I am careful to keep mine filled. These look nice, they lock in place and they aren't heavy. Quick easy upgrade to protect your bars and your body.
These bar ends are great for wide bars as they will glance off obstacles instead of grabbing. Plastic plugs are a pain to take on and off, and will grab onto more surfaces. These look good and super easy to take on and off. Get silver as the black will show scrapes. Be aware these will damage your car if they smack into it with any force.
What can I say about these other than that they're just what I was looking for? I chose red, to match the colors of my new bike. They fit snug after installation, and I don't have any fear of them loosening and falling out during a ride or while my bike is on my rack on the highway.
The red color pops quite nicely as well, and has a nice finish to it.
All in all, I like these a lot, and they were well worth the money! The biggest plus to these is that they seem like they'll fit quite a wide variety of different bars because of just how little or how much you can have them expand!
Keeping your handlbar grips off the bumps and scratches!
Learnt my lesson the hard way when using those normal plastic bar plugs that either brake off or doesnt protect the handlebar and/or grips from unwanted damage. loving it so far after the change, knowing that it will protect my handlebar and grips better compared to stock plastic ones.
If you've ever bought a set of grips you know you get the ugly plastic bar plugs that fall apart from wear and tear and just look ugly. These are the cherry on top for your nice new grips, give your bike that nice clean look that I love. As far as function, they're made of aluminum and seem very heavy duty, don't see them falling apart anytime soon.
These bar ends look good and are top quality. The wedge system they use is much better than the rubber grommet used by other bar end manufacturers. Makes the bar ends easier to install and remove without getting stuck. My only knock on these is the anodize. It is a really dark blue. It doesn't match any od the other blue ano on my bike. Not a big deal but if color consistancy is your thing...these are a pretty dark blue.
These bottom out before expanding to the inner diameter of the bars and the end is a huge diameter that will protrude from all but the thickest bar tapes. I thought of wrapping the expansion part with a strip of bar tape but said ‘hail naw’. Disappointed.
