SDG has been hard at work in the development lab and has delivered some of the most comfortable mountain biking grips around. The Slater features a unique diamond texture profile that provides exceptional grip. With the lock on system, you can be assured you’ll never experience any slipping, allowing you to ride as hard as your heart desires without the worry. The Slater is an excellent combination of comfort and performance in a lightweight package!

Multiple Colorways: To match your bike or style!
Integrated, 1pc Lock-On: Prevents slipping, no matter how you ride.
Tapered Inner Core: prevents slippage and provides maximum bar control.
Dual density design with a tapered profile of 30-32mm: For maximum power and comfort.
Bought these at the recommendation of a friend and have been super impressed by them. They are a thinner grip, but with the grip material they use the grips don't give a "harsh" feel that I've experienced out of other thin grips. I really like how the grips seem to taper internally as it gives the grips a super secure feeling on the bar. I've been riding these on my Evil Wreckoning and am yet to have the slightest bit of grip movement. Definitely my new go to grip!
These grips are different from anything on the market. (That's a good thing). The one piece design is a game changer. It's lighter, less expensive, and better looking than the traditional lock on clamp design that has become the norm. The has a thin profile and the rubber is plenty tacky for use with or without gloves. The one sided clamp also allows you to place your hands to the end of the bar. And no, these grips do not slip even though they only have a single clamp. Considering the low price of entry, it's definitely worth giving these a try!
Easy to install. May have been nice to have removable end caps in case someone wanted to add those end of the handlebar hook grip things. A hacksaw can take off the ends if you so desire. Missing star is because I had to turn them a bit more than I wanted to clear the shifter lever. The grip fastener ring was protruding right into where I had my lever set.
Punchline: *These are not the grips you are looking for.* Might be OK on a dirt jumper, but far too harsh for trail riding or DH. SDG made the plastic carrier too thick, & rubber way too thin.
Pros: - Very tacky rubber compound - At 84g a good deal lighter than other single-clamp designs Cons: - Harsh ride: same grip diameter as my SC Palmdales, but they transmit far more shock & trail chatter to my hands & wrists, resulting in more fatigue. I have to shift hand position to avoid going numb. - Hard end caps limit hand position. Unlike most other single-clamp designs that have rubber wrapping entire outer end of the grip, the outer 5mm of the Slaters is built of sharply-beveled hard plastic. Wrapping your hands over these end caps is just as uncomfortable as grabbing the metal ends of dual-clamps. - Downside of stickiness: in a dry climate, everything sticks to them. I bought the blue ones that after one ride were completely covered in trail dust & dark lint ripped from my riding gloves. Can't get it off w/ a rag or compressed air. If you want colored grips to enhance the aesthetics of your bike these are *not*what you're looking for.
