The new grips ODI E-Lite Series are designed for those riders who are looking for added comfort on longer rides.
As primary test rider, Curtis Keene has provided a lot of influence into the design of the Elite models which offer more cushioning where needed most without providing a feeling of overall bulkiness. The key to this is that the inside core from the lock-on grip is off-set from the rubber which provides more cushion on the top of the grip where it is needed most without changing the overall diameter of the grip.
We've also redesigned the knurl pattern in order to provide a softer feel at key points while allows optimum traction where needed most.
They are available in three models: Motion (non-waffled), and Flow (half-waffle) and Pro (padded and half-waffle).
Utilizing our single clamp V2 system, which was adapted from our motocross line we are able to provide more comfort for riders who often place their hands on the outside of the grips. The clamp bolt also has a head size of 3mm (as opposed to our original style clamps 2.5mm) to provide easier installation and improved torque strength.
They are all 130mm in length, with each model varying slightly in diameter: Motion (30mm), Flow (31mm) and Pro (32mm).
MSRP is $28.95 and the Elite series grips are now available. Check with your local bike dealer for local availability.
