At junior school in the late 1970's when we were playing army, marbles, British Bulldog and especially at this time of year, conkers! The girls swapped, traded and showed off their collection of scented rubbers.

2009 and Spank have stepped back in time and produced these fragrant little numbers. Check them out!

"Something For The Weekend Sir"?
When you went to the barber shop for a short, back and sides, your Dad's barber would ask exactly that question. Want to know what it means? Ask your Dad in front of your Mom tonight over dinner!

British Bull Dog: One, Two, Three..
British Bull Dog: One, Two, Three..

Now 2010 (O.K I know it's still 2009 but I've always come early) and we have gone full circle. I'm pretty sure scented rubbers were banned from our school and maybe even country wide. How about yours?

Why? No doubt some weapon thought the red rubber smelt so much like a strawberry that it might actually taste like one. Then ended up nearly choking themselves to death.

Should Pinkbike leave a public safety announcement about these grips? i.e Please don't eat these grips! I can imagine if someone does then we will no doubt see them listed near the top of the New Year's Darwin Awards. Look it up!

O.K no more flannel. This is what you need to know:
I've checked my crystal ball and I predict everyone of you will have a birthday one day next year. Secondly these will be the biggest selling grip of 2010.

Forget the scent, the cleverest thing you will like about these grips is the grip pattern, it's DE-BOSSED. On most other grips the grip pattern is raised meaning your actual hand is on average in contact with only 20% of the grip.

This De-Bossed / cut out style means your hand is in 80% contact with the grip. More control, more feel, less blisters..
And yes they are a pretty thin profile.

The actual grip length is 145mm and the ends have expander caps with stainless steel hardware built in.
They are not lock-ons, though do have a small groove either end to allow for zip ties or wire cabling to secure the grip in place.

Any downsides? They are not lock-ons. This may put off many a DH rider/racer. Even though wiring your grips isn't that hard. As for all you dirt jumpers, BMXers, Street and Park riders, these are definitely right up your street.

Now for the smells:
Magic Black - Does Not Smell!
Apple Red
Grape Purple
Berry Blue
Zesty Orange
Vanilla White

U.K PRICING IS A VERY REASONABLE £7.99RRP

Now how about getting yur Mom to buy them for you! How can you do that? We all know your bedroom smells, tell her these are the latest fad in air fresheners! Sit them on your window sill for a few weeks then transport them onto your bike.

Now if that's not an idea for Spank to run and advert then I don't know what is!

 seriously though, this shit is weak. neg prop me if you want, but quite frankly I just find it a failed attempt to be original.
pray this doesn't catch on.
and who is sniffing there grips while riding?

EDIT:
I will admit I do like the pattern of the grip.
and the fact that they made one that doesn't smell.
  • + 5
 whats wrong with having scented grips? its a novelty. the pattern looks awesome and im gonna buy some just for that reason, but the fact that they are scented is just funny on the side. its like how my handlebars say a dirty word in a different language.
  • + 1
 the pattern DOES look awesome. and I love the fact that they have a smaller circumference or whatever. all I'm saying is that the scent was unnecessary and kind of tacky to be honest.

 i just picked some up, interested to see how my gloves smell after a couple of rides.

 Exactly. Maybe with these grips, my gloves won't get too rank if I forget to throw the gloves into the wash after a bunch of rides.

 i will put them on my bike tomorrow and keep you posted

 ^^^^thank you captain obvious, OOOOO look at that company trying to get attention so that people will buy their product at a reasonable price

 HAHAHA man you made me laugh LMAO

 Let me refraise that. Making good quality, inovative products at competative prices is one thing, but making your grips smell like a girls fruity chapstic is another. Seriously guys how old are you? Spank is a joke.
  • - 2
 i think the editor is a little retarded. seriously, your hand only has 25% contact?!!! stop being a dumb ass, and from the looks of it that pattern is gonna f^^k your hands unless its a soft compoud. i wanna hear another review of this from someone whose ridden them for atleast a month
  • + 3
 to me embossing makes sense and i can totally see 25% contact, i think he meant like when your applying pressure the highest pressure is only on 25% of the grip, while if they cut it out your gripping the OD, with in cut outs relieving pressure, i think that is pretty innovative. Plus the design looks cool, i think that alone is a selling feature (and if anybody says cool designs aren't a selling feature....they are lying to themselves) plus who the f*ck cares they cost like $15 bux if i get 3 months of nonstinky grips for that price, ill take it.
  • + 2
 Regardless of the scent guys, theyre still pretty neat looking grips. The whole scented thing is just the Spank guys having a bit of a laugh - Dont take it too seriously. 8 quid for some nice grips in a large selection of colours that work how a grip should? I'll take it.

 leave it to the americans to jump to conclusions. and that 75% should be beating the piss out of you for not recognizing your own flag Wink .... gd article but the product doesnt seem like the brilliant idea of 2010.

 75%!!!!! so in other words, His great, great,great, great,great, great,great, great, grandad left Ireland and went to the States in hope of bigger things. I'm guessing that Irish percentage is actually around 2%. Have you actually been to Ireland then YukonFXrider???

 yep u are only Irish if you r born there... both of my parents were born there and i was born here so that makes me Canadian... i have scented grips on my bike... they smell like ass

 haha dirtjumper169 ur funny u really are, your like a year older ur a child one that has little clue to what goes on outside ur little bubble of a world. but i digress, just a pointer for the future to prevent you from becoming another retarded American (please look up the word before commenting) I recomend that you use a more extensive vernacular while your young so when you do get to the point where u can call a 14 year old a kid and think your above it your capable of using more than one word to describe the story of your life. and yukon made a funny mistake one that deserved some ribbing, and before you opened your mouth nobody was droping the F bomb... but then again Americans have always been quick to drop what bombs they could. Wink
  • + 3
 lol... "always quick to drop bombs"...awesome
  • + 1
 i know im 15 too, but at least i get my point across without shouting and swearing like dirtjumper169, he simply proves that americans (as a rule) dont look at things, and take time to think about what they are about to say. and yes, people (including me) were a little harsh on the kid but still, they should look (learn) before they speak Smile
  • + 1
 quote from "dumbass" dirtjumper169-

f*ck you you f*cking brit and stupid canadians. so the kid made a mistake you dont have to bust his balls for it. and if yukon riders mom is 50% irish and his dad is 100% irish then that would make him 75% irish f*cking idiot.

Well, yes he did make a mistake. Well observed my little trigger happy friend. but the main fact is that his father may be 100% Irish and his mother may also be 75% Irish but that still makes him 1oo% AMERICAN!!!!!!!! He was born under said flag and holds said passport, so Ironically he only holds history that frankly, means bugger all. Look at your history. The only War that you've fort on your own was a war against your own people. Thats your so called civil war before you start quoting something different. Please stop Creating situations that only embarrass yourself and your Country. It makes us feel cheap by bringing the point up. ROCK ON FELLOW PB'ER'S THAT HAVE AN OUNCE OF CHARACTER AND INTILECT..............

 By the way, I'm not a big fan of the scented grips. I'll spend more time sniffing them mid-air than concentrating on the landing. hahaha

 you are a complete and utter idiot Americanahstan if your reason for now not wanting to buy Spank rims is because of their new grips! What on earth does this product have to do with the rims, it does not affect the quality of their other products at all? Perhaps you should go and read reviews on the rims rather then bluntly stating .. i dont like their new idea so all their other products must be rubbish. I personally do question weather the smell will last long but the way Spank are trying to push the bounderies and try new stuff is good news for bikers. If you actually read the article you would see that apart from the aesetics the actual product seems to be made fairly well providing better grip then those offered by competitors. And you find their logo ugly?? Once again you show what an idiot you are completely obsessed with the look of a prduct over its function and quality. Please hold your stupid unhelpful opinions to yourself in the future....

Sorry for any spelling mistakes... english isnt my first language..

 "There is nothing original about Spanks grips!!! Pull your thumb out of you know where and install your smelly grips in their stead if you like because I am sticking with tried and true components and not some flaming flashy stool matter."
In the words of Mr Paton "Forget the scent, the cleverest thing you will like about these grips is the grip pattern, it's DE-BOSSED. On most other grips the grip pattern is raised meaning your actual hand is on average in contact with only 20% of the grip".
Be cool dude, chill out! Its a novelty- like bells and ribons, spokie dokies or funny dust caps...
Don't buy the grips. End of. Just don't be so venomous towards other people. Yawn.

 i did not once say that this exact product is good for the biking world.. i said that companies trying new stuff is... ofcourse there are going to be a few rubbish ideas along the way... unfortunately thats the beauty of life almost 90% of companies are marketing maggots trying to suck money out of us... thats life!! you are testing with tried and tested components but you clearly said that now you are not going to buy rims from them because of this?? you are completely contradicting yourself?? haha your idocracy continues with your pathetic attempts at insulting... i really dont have to sink that low to make you look like an idot.. you do that by yourself?
Its weird how much your comment has been negative propped so far if you are right?
  • + 2
 ermmm, you confuse me so much my none-bike-riding friend.. Prove this isn't so by up-loading some photographs of your two wheeled antics, I could do with a laugh! Anyways, your arguements for these fine grips that have a scent of by-gone days of old are based upon the ideals of an inconsiderate, illiterate, no doubt woefully uneducated, selfish and a more than probably untalented person. I hope for your sake these are not representing thoughts of yourself, though i fear that is the case. You have proven that the therory of natural selection is inadaquate for humans in modern times.... Back to reality, these grips are looking good, im loving the inverted grip, a set of these beauties in orange on my bmx, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. NICE ONE SPANK FOR MAKING SUCH A FINE PRODUCT, IM SOLD!

 lol seventy8, id say you cant go wrong for 7.99 when u get a decent amount of grip with a novelty idea...?

 they look like ok grips to me smell or no smell it doesnt look like we are paying extra for the smell so its not a con just a little extra from them. for 8 quid im sure there a spot on grip ! lets take life a little LESS seriously !
[Reply]

 not gonna lie I think the scent is a pretty dumb idea. I mean they'll get dirty after a few rides, and the smell will probably wear off after a couple weeks. and who smells their grips when they're riding anyway?
  • + 7
 Isn't it just a unique selling point? 'Oh they smell?? Wow, gotta get me a set of those!'... Doesn't mean I expect the scent to last or that I really care after a few days that they do smell- it's just the novelty factor, a bit of fun?!
  • + 2
 Agreed, and I bet they're grippier than more expensive grips! I'd buy a white set but I cant stand the smell of Vanilla Razz

It'll smell like your lid, gloves, pads, shoes and socks (before washing, ofcourse) after an all day session at your favorite bike park or trail. it'll be packaged in a sponge so you simply twist & drip! that's right ladies we'll have something for you, too!

 These grips are useless to me unless I can find a way to skillfully rub my sweaty nut-sack on them after a long, hot ride. Of course shoving the end of your bar into the bottom of your pants is never an easy thing to do without attracting suspicion! Perhaps I could buy a spare set and simply rotate them in and out over the course of ride and on a side note Im sure the profile in my drawers would impress the ladies as well.

 Lol at the DE-BOSED part making out that most other grips are bad. If it sounds too good to be true it ususally is. Im fairly sure the makers of those grips that are only in contact 20% are well aware that that increases the pressure on the hand and, if put in the right place, this means all the grip you want and not necessarily blisters/ similar.

Amaericanastan i think you are a spammer trying to piss people off, or else you really are as stupid as everyone thinks you are. you need to get a life, get off the computer and seek help.

 First off i want to appologize to Terry for starting this up again Secondly Of course we can all be friends, and everyone is entitled to their opinion, you and every other user on here, it is all a manner of presentation and making your point. you haven't brought any validation to your opinion, you just keep stating your opinion which isn't a point at all. Terry and other users have brought up valid reasons to get the grips, while you just keep saying they suck who wants a grip that smells or what not. So people say your being irational and taking it way out perportion so you start using big words trying to prove your smart so people will think that your opinion is real. Then to add to how smart you are, you decide to point out minor flaws in other peoples words to try and make them appear dumb as if their opinion is wrong. so instead of talking condecending to people. If you want people to listen to what you say don't talk to them like they are an idiot.

 Terri quoted what you said. you basically called them gay pieces of shit, but in flashy fag talk. you haven't ridden them so you are speaking about which you do not know so matter of factly. i agree move on. good day sir.

 Christ (or whatever your token belief may consist of?) Are you still trying to defend your honor Yankieboringbloke!????? Really, you do need to grow up and find other, more interesting things to debate against. Like the world and it's financial situation for example! Get your ass on CCN.com and chat on there. You'll be welcomed with open arms bue to your repetitive and, Quite frankly-drivel based comments. Please do the biking world a favor and quiet it hey. good fry..........

 I think in this case, the word GAY is used as a(rather ironically) homonym. You already know that, once again- you are being pedantic.
To say he is homophobic is to presume. In your own words 'you are wrong because you know nothing about me'.
Head. Brick wall.

 "among younger generations of speakers, has a derisive meaning equivalent to rubbish or stupid (as in "That's so gay."). In this use the word does not mean "homosexual", so that it can be used, for example, of an inanimate object or abstract concept of which one disapproves, but the extent to which it still retains connotations of homosexuality has been debated"
  • + 2
 Americanahstan, you said "flaming flashy stool matter." to most users on this site that would translate into flashy gay pieces of shit. but I believe I said "If you want people to listen to what you say don't talk to them like they are an idiot."
yet in your reply you say
"What degradation of our kind! It makes me sick to think that I'm part of you! (-this part made me a little sick too Big Grin ), Evolve!"
that is pretty condecending, and as Terri said your being pedantic, when you ask for a kleenex do you say "pass the facial tissue" if it isn't Kleenex brand? probably not. So many people get offended by lifestyle choices of others that it has just become an adjective, haven't you seen South Park? oh wait here is the kicker YOU SAID IT, and then blew up when i quoted you. so now what? are you going to continue to talk all high and mighty about yourself? talk down to all of us like were idiots and we have no valid points and just continue to make more flaws while pointing out ours? why don't you establish what your trying to prove before your next post and have some relevance instead of getting all pissed off. i have established mine, and you proved it. so to that, i will say again, good day sir.

that is insulting to my intelligence, sorry that i don't try to impress people with using words for a sequestered 16th century nunnery, you know nothing of my iq, nor where i am on the elvolutionary chart, but yet amongst our peers on this site you have 9 comments with a rating of -0.44 while i have 1210 comments with a rating of 1.41. i am not saying this is a popularity contest, all i am saying is that ^^^^that is proof that people don't like what you say, and like what i have to say, so before you reply and get pissed about me saying that too. notice that i have establish what i was trying to say, proved it with facts, not presumptions like you seem to enjoy jumping to. Everyone has their own choices and preferences if we want to get back the original point of the "I am sticking with tried and true components and not some flaming flashy stool matter. By the way, if I do not like a logo I have the right to say so without being attack by no-nothings" you can stick to your tried and true components while we are willing to try other new innovative grips with cool designs and a variety of colors, and your right you can not like the logo, but you can also leave it at that, if you take it personal when people reply, than don't post. because that is what that reply button is for. To tell you what we think of what you said, if you don't like that, once again, don't post. Any one can reply and say what ever they want, one of the best and worst things about Pinkbike.

 (i would like to point out that in the quote "I have the right to say so without being attack by no-nothings", it should of been attacked by know-nothings, now for some one who speaks very highly of how they speak, you don't speak to well sometimes, which leads me to believe that after you decided to point out other peoples flaws you decided to get into tight-panty mode, and start with how we should once again to quote you "Words are words they're not big and not small in meaning, they just indicate and it is simply just a matter of personal style and choice. If I told you that I don't like your words I'm sure to be attacked. Watch what you say please. It's my choice and I never said that people are idiots! I never said that the grips suck! I said that they (the stinky grips) are the bunk! " i think i pointed out a few hypocracies in your statements in like 10 min. while if you read through mine,my thoughts are consistent and i stayed true to what i said originally and continue to establish my points. while you are all over the places with senseless direction, sorry guys rant over, i am just bored at work and it is a slow morning)
