So ive been trying to find some good gum grips since i purchased these terrible one grips that don't feel very good on my hands

And ive come to the conclusion some grips that come in gum color don't even look right at all

Photo

on the left you can see a gum grip and on the right is probably one of the ugliest things i have ever seen

Photo

here are all three grips i have recently purchased Mike aitken grips that are hideous and odi longsicks

You mean there are different shades of color? Holy shit, call the cops! Call a scientist!

But for real, would you expect a color like red (for example) to be the exact same shade on everything?

Gum is just one of those colors that is gonna be different to everybody... if you want gum grips to match your gum sidewalls, your best bet is to by grips from the same company who makes your tires...

Lolol this.


Personally I think the gum colored Terrible grips look worse than the other gum colors, but that's just me, and why they make different shades of gum colors.. To fit other people's preferences. The bmx world isn't built around you Oneeye.


I do know Odyssey makes/made Griswald grips in the gum color similar to the Terrible grips you have, maybe look into them if you want.

I don't think anything can match these cult grips are more similar to the natural color grips than gum

If you're going for the trendy gum look, I think the merritt crosscheck come in a pretty similar shade as the cult gum tires

Cult Vans grips were similar to the "Classic Gum" in the photo above.
