    THICK gripzzz.. who makes em?

    i had these on my DJ and have never had so much love for a pair of grips (other than the sh!tty grub screw clamp system), from what i understand, these are discontinued..


    can anyone recommend some thicker grips like this with a soft rubber compound? (not interested in thick grips with a hard compound) id really like some thicker grips for the DH bike i am currently building.. the sunlines really helped with hand/arm pump, not sure why thick grips arent more popular. they were like pillows for my hands.


    thx in advance

    I've got some free agent lock-ons that I'm about to take off a bike because they're too thick.

    The design is pretty cushy. I ride them without gloves all the time.




    edit: was thinking of those rogues too^^^^^

    I have lockon Ourys on all of my bmx and mountainbikes. I've tried others and always come back to them.
    She said, "Do you have cable?" I said, "No. But I'm sure the ropes will be plenty strong for you."

    Not quite sure what "soft rubber compound" you're looking for but I only use the larger grips on all of my bikes since I've got fairly large hands. I've got the ODI Rogues on my DH bike, Specialized Enduro XL's on my full suspension bike, and Raceface Strafes on my hardtail. All of those are the larger sized grips.
    Go that way, really fast. If something gets in your way, turn.

    +1 on the ODI Rogues. ive got big hands and don't like the thin grips as i get arm pump. with thicker grips, barely any. i run Rogues on all my bikes. they wear well and last a long time.

    boy- ive felt those on numerous other bikes and do not like them, they started hurting my hands pretty damn quick. IIRC they start out as a hard compound and then get softer as you ride them.. id like a grip thats ready to go.

    kid-do you know the diameter of them? i googled but no luck. i havent had a mushroom style grip since the bmx days.. maybe its time to go back! 13 bux is also a damn fine deal for some lock ons.

    They're the biggest grip I've ever had on a bike. I can measure when I get home.

    Yeah I was going to offer to give them to you if you're ever up here but with as cheap as they are, they're a pretty easy decision.

    I'll get back to you.

    Dem Free Agents damn similar to what Im running now, Sensus'. By far my favorite. Kinda on the skinny side but the wave pattern I really like. Good amount of grip, like the feel and control I have using em. With or without mits on theyre awesome.

    These are WAY thicker than sensus. That's actually what I'm replacing them with.

    its hard to explain what the sunline thicks were like, because simply put, ive never felt a grip like this before. and i want moar

    due to the soft compound and thickness if you squeeze hard enough while riding your hands can shift around a little bit without actually physically moving your hand. i saw a thread here earlier (dated late 08 or 09 i believe) that someone brings this up and said they didnt like the sunline grips b/c of that.

    i have never felt a grip that acutally disperses & dampens small vibrations until i tried the sunlines. im now hooked on thick grips

    ive always wanted to try those as well. maybe when i come down from my 'i want thick grips' phase

    edit:
    thanks for the suggestions everyone else too!

    as for the oury grips, ive also tried those and dont like them. they start off somewhat hard and then get soft. they also make a mess all over my hands.. (i dont ride with gloves sometimes) =/

    i wish i wasnt so picky..

    Ourys or Rogues are the thickest I've seen.
