Slippery Grips

To all riders who have shit sessions, injured wrists and have to wear gloves due to slippery/sweaty grips: I HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION.

I added a tennis Pro Kennex Overwrap grip to my BMX Fly Rubens. This barely added any thickness only now, after ten minutes of riding in the hot sun, sweat on my grips wouldn't make the grips slippery. Before I would have to put gloves on. Yesterday, however, after having installed my tennis overwraps, I rode for 4 hours straight without the slightest proplem. Sweat actually made the grips grip better! WTF?

The model I used was called Wet Wrap. It came with three lengths of wraps, in my box, and one would easily cover a grip. I started at the flange (bit that sticks up next to the breaks) and worked my way down. At the end I cut the excess off and used the bit of tape they gave with it to stick it down. Best 6 bucks I've ever spent on my bike.

Finally a session without gloves and the excuse that my grips are slippery, hope this helps.

Post if me back if it does or if you have any questions.

I tried to find it on the Pro Kennex wesite but I couldn't. If you go to a sport shop and have a look at the grips from pro kennex, they have the ratings for tack, comfort and shit on the back. The main website is www.prokennex.com

BTW, they were the first ones I bought, there weren't any others on sale, and they just happened to be good so the other ones cant be bad.

They look the same as the ones on this link:

Each little bundle will easily cover one grip.

The solution is called ODI Longnecks...I even cut the flange off and about half an inch of the mushroom pattern and they literally do not slip a millimeter...you could use hairspray to put them on to add even a little extra stick, but I just used isopropyl and within a few hours, it evaporated and boom! them grips aren't moving.

The grips aren't rolling, It's the hand that rolls on the grip

Well JohnathanAllen, you can ask nicely or you can fuck off. I'm sharing my advice for people who want to take it and who have the same problem as me. If from my description you can't get it, then go back to primary school dipshit.

haha, just wow.

You know, I wasn't being rude but I see that you are and you want to go ahead and jump to conclusion and assume I was. But whatever dude. All I wanted was to see pictures of your creation. How nice do I have to ask? Whatever.

You're the one to tell me to go back to primary school and you can't even spell my name right when it's right in front of your face. You lose.
