ODI Elite Pro Lock On Grips
As one of three contact points you have with your bike, a new set of grips can breathe new life into your ride. A great festive gift that any mountain biker would be happy with.
ODI is one of the first names that come to mind when thinking of grips. The latest version of their new Elite Pro grips features a single clamp and an ergonomic half-waffle design. With six different colours to choose from, you're sure to find one to match any bike!

The tire plug has become a favourite emergency spare of the Enduro rider. Forget a tube, just plug the hole and inflate the tire!
Stans’ take on the tire plug works both physically and chemically. According to Stans, the barbed tip of their DART plug anchors into the tire so it will not pull out when riding and the material it is made of is coated with a safe chemical that reacts with any latex sealant to further help seal the hole in the tire.
• Two heads on tool
• Valve core remover
• No trimming needed
• Weight: 15 grams (complete tool, two Darts)
• MSRP: $25 USD, 5-pack of refills ($20 USD)
