Lately, we have seen a number of DH racers and AM/enduro riders sporting grips that did not appear to have locking collars. Lizard Skins' DSP grip system may provide a clue as to why. Locking grips require an inner sleeve of hard plastic that eats up some of the space that could be used for softer grip material. The DSP system, if it is as bomb proof as its maker says it is, offers more cushion at the same thickness as a traditional locking grip and without the bulky locking rings on the grip's extremes. - RC Press Release:Lizard Skins
