Bike grips are a very personal thing and the Grippy Grip addresses most of the things that BikeYoke didn't like about other grips on the market.
On some of your favourite grips, you may notice that, in a matter of a few rides, you can see small parts of the rubber already get twisted/torn or sheared off.
Some grips provide excellent damping but the rubber may be too soft/squishy/sticky to stand up to rough use over a longer period of time. For the Grippy, BikeYoke settled for a honeycomb surface structure and combined it with a material that provides a very good feel and grip, yet it is stiff and sturdy enough that you can not twist the rubber, which helps keep wear to a minimum.
Inner sleeve cutouts:
For even more damping on the outside palm area, BikeYoke designed cut-outs into the inner Nylon support sleeve, creating space for more rubber material all the way to the handlebar for more damping and support of the critical outside palm area.
The Grippy, while featuring a circular diameter is offset from the middle axis. Thinner grips usually allow for a firmer/better mechanical grip, thicker grips can give more damping and comfort. With the offset design, BikeYoke created more damping where you need it - on the rearward facing side (palm side) of the grip towards the rider - without increasing the overall diameter of the grip
One thing BikeYoke particularly disliked was how the outer ends of some grips tore too easily due to a lack of protection from improperly designed endcaps.
Scraping a tree, going down, these things happen and we do not want the grip to get torn too easily, right? So the black, integrated endcap mainly has two functions:
- The slightly tapered shape gives you excellent tactile feedback to feel where the grip ends.
- Provides solid protection against impacts.
Mounting style: Single clamp lock-on.
- Rubber: TPR
- Inner sleeve/endcap: Nylon
- Clamp: aluminium, forged
Pattern: Honeycomb style.
- Eccentric/offset design for better mechanical grip and vibration damping.
- Inner sleeve cutouts create space for more rubber material all the way to the handlebar for more damping and support of the critical outside palm area.
Soft / firm: Soft enough for comfort yet firm enough for durability.
End caps: The end caps are integrated and provide excellent tactile feedback to feel where the grip ends and provide solid protection against impacts.
Diameter: (rubber part): 31mm
