As the title states I'm looking for some new grips. What are some that you guys have used and liked. I want some that are somewhat soft but not squishy soft, not super thick, and don't rip apart after a week or two.

Éclat zap. They seem to be the most durable grip I've ridden so far

I'd have to agree with this. Another one I liked were the Cult Vans, but they didn't last as long as my ODIs, still a nice grip when it lasted though.

i also suggest the crosschecks. they fit all the criteria you described. i usually destroy grips in a month and these still look brand new. the grip pattern works nicely for the way i grip my bars.

Plus the bar ends have metal inserts and are hard plastic so they don't rip and get stuck

I run Kink Samurai grips.

They are actually made by ODI, and they have this ODI-Longneck rubber feel to them.

They look actually very good and are similar to longnecks except for a few horizontal lines.

They are quite durable: they still look and feel like new!

Super happy except for the fact that they get a bit slippery: I sweat a lot from my hands...

It doesn't matter where a train goes. It's decidin' to get on that does.

ODI to be og
T-1 are odi that have already been wore in (raised in the center and contoured where your hand goes)
Dugans for shallower ribbeed ODI

All three you cant go wrong with

I liked the flybikes fuego grips the most of any grips ive had. Super soft and they lasted me from about january to now (8 months). I reccomend. I liked odsy dugans too but they werent as comfy as the fuego grips and lasted me about 4 months. I'd also get some par ends by odsy. better than any plastic barend out there

Thanks for the replys guys! I've had the samurai's they were decent but it looks like my choice has narrowed down to crosschecks, fuegos, and the t-1.

|

Are samurais soft? I'm thinking about getting them (not trying to threadjack sorry)


anyways my edwins were my longest lasting grips. I ripped my left dugan in a month.

Yea they are soft especially after break in period. I would recommend them the only reason I didnt want to get them this time is just to try something new.

Odi Longnecks, Demolition Teams (back in 04 or so) Knight Sabers (back in around 08).

Definitely the Odi Longneck SS.

I haven't rode in forever so I suck and I have 2 Hondas. Follow me on Instagram @softtop2k.417

I'm really digging on the hoder's. They are a little on the thicker side but shit's nice cool

Can't really speak on longevity, only gotten to ride them twice.

I use Merritt Crosschecks. They are alright, pretty comfortable but do give me blisters after a long session. The BSD Forever Hi grips are nice too

United Nathan Williams. Soft but not too soft, nice horizontals work well.

ODI stay strong grips.
By far they are the BEST i have ever used.
they are very soft, sticky but it doesnt leave the stickynes on you're hands.
if you sweat while riding then these are good as well.
The look awesome too.

I am in love with the merit crosschecks as well. Just really comfy and last a long time.
