I've heard that gum grips are very grippy and grip better than ODI's. Is this true?

I know tires are slighlty grippier due to the compound , I'd presume the grips would be too. But they're grips man , just hold on and you'll be fine.

They're supposed to be grippier, but I don't really know?

Are ODIs any grippier than normal though anyway? They definitely last a long time, but I've never really heard anyone say they are especially grippy, and personally I think they feel horrible.

ODI's aren't grippy if your hand sweats a TINY bit.

If you sweat a lot and you like suicide no-hander's get ODI's

Mine are. Any other grip I have ever had was slippery when my hands sweated. My odis don't get slippy unless it is 100 and humid out and I sweat profusely.

Demolition Teams were my other fave grip.

I hated ODIs first off they HURT. Not comfortable in any way. Maybe with gloves. If you want good gum grips that actually do last longer, Gum Tom Dugan grips are the BEST! I never had a problem with sweat, and my hands get sweaty. haha they last me a good couple months of constant riding and i have big callaced hands. I burn thru ODIs so fast! like maybe a month and they are gone.
