Are they thinner than the Ruffian? I always found those to be super thin.
Maybe slightly?

The ruffians are thinner then the TLD grips I have both.
The newer ODI Elite motion grips are really thin with the new single clamp lock

I think the Ruffian is thinner, but the Motion is vastly more comfortable due to the offset design. I can barely ride with Ruffians, but I kinda like the Motion.

Raceface Lovehandles are quite thin at 28mm. Odi TLD's and Ruffians are both listed at 29.5mm.

Same here. At one time the Ruffian was the only one out there.
The TLD is more comfortable then the Ruffian.
ODI also makes a 130 and 135 version of the Long Neck I would like to try.

Raids feel like a warm hug. In all possible aspects

I've gone back to push-on. Compared to a lock-on, a push-on of equal thickness can have five times the rubber between your hand and the bar. The thinnest Specialized lock-on had, I was told, 0.5 mm of rubber over the plastic core - it certainly felt like it. A push-on of the same diameter would have about 2.5 mm of rubber.

For anyone worried about push-on grips slipping: use wire.

Yup, good bit of 0.8mm stainless “moto” wire does wonders.

I’ve actually gone back to lock ons after a few years of running wired on push-ons. Find the happy medium of rubber thickness on the “race only” thin dmr deathgrips gives the right blend of control and comfort, for me.

But lock on's are so easy!!!! lol

In all seriousness, I may go to wire and glue. Like the good ol moto days..... I like the feel of bigger OD grips, but I find myself blowing my hands off the grips with bigger grips. Thinner grips but with BETTER damping properties, would be sweet.

Try ESI grips.

I'll tell you why they need to be lock on's. I'm putting some mini handlebars on my ebike, so my daughter has something to hold on to when she is on her Shotgun seat. The bars I got hold of are only the 8" wide so the lock will give it extra width. And thin grips because she only has small hands.
