Also, they feature a "tacky texture" which should give a good level of in all weather conditions no matter if you are wearing gloves or not.
Of the two new grips, there is the Mega Fat Paw Cam which differs from the standard grip in one way, which features a more ergonomic shape when compared to the standard grip profile. Wolf Tooth claim that the Mega Fat Paw Cam offers "reduced circumference compared to non-faceted grips, providing padding and comfort only where you need it." In addition to the more ergonomic shape, the more angular design of the Cam grip creates a higher level of grip due to the four edges created by the unique shape.
