 I have only had them for about a week and just really really really love them.

Pros- Excellent grip, don't tear up your hand, reasonably priced, Come in different sizes for people with freakishly small hands or just people with a hand growing disorder Smile

Cons- The bolts for the collar strip friken easy and I now need to find two replacement bolts, and the snap caps really live up to there name! One of mine snapped! Frown not happy either

But overall they are excellent grips. Would recommend to anyone looking for grips!!

 They come in many different colors so they are awesome for matching up with a thing you got going on with your bike. For example i have the shore 1 08 and it has green totems and i got some green grips and it looks sick. Not to mention that they have great grip you can really feel a difference to no name brands. They are lock on so they don't move around.

 They are grippy and comfortable. But, after 2 months of usage, they have worn out a little bit - I'm only afraid that they may not endure the whole season. But we will see, for now: they are great.

I've got 'em over the year now, they are worn out a nice bit but still grippy.

After two seasons of riding - they are worn out really much, it's high time to change them. What is good, that after cleaning, they are still very grippy!

 Not sure why would I want them in PEARL white, but if they're still as easy to hold on to - slim and amazingly grippy - then why the hell not Smile
+ you get to lock your sweet plugs in place with the very same lock-on system - and will never loose them.
Absolute best ^^

 I have been using it for a year and a half, and loved it! It has an awesome grip feel. Con: It wears down after a year, but that still outlasts many other grips though. It really locks on your handlebar so it doesnt move around the handlebar. The locked grips adds a lot dependability to this model, you wont see any other brands as good as this one! I give it four stars!

 Amazing grips, pure and simple! I have had these on my bike for nearly two years and they have proved to be extremely well made and enough so that the grip has probably ruined 2 pairs of gloves by wearing through the material. Well pleased with them and will only buy these grips in the future.

 Love em so much , Easy to put on & take off.They look very stylish and are very grippy . When the grip wears down you can replace only the central section of the grip therefore keeping costs down .The only negatives are :
-The clamps and grips are hard to separate
-They are quite expensive compared to some other grips

 This grip works very well with either gloves or bare hands. The locking system is awesome and makes it easy to change it out to a new one if needed. One problem is that the grip does brake down fast if used a lot. But in my book its a solid 8 out of 10

 simply the best mountain bike grip money can buy. they get tackier the longer you ride them, last forever and never slip thanks ODI's lock on system. i've been riding the same pair for over 2 years on my mountain bike and they feel amazing.

 I got these a year ago and I still use them. They are in horrible condition, but theyve lasted me a year lol. The rubber has come off the the plastic and I can turn the rubber around the bars once lol. And they are completely smooth. Getting new grips soon though.

 They're sweet grips, I've had a pair on every mountain bike I've ever owned. They have just the right stickyness (with gloves), and they usually last me a little longer then a month of hard use. You can use 'em all day and your hands don't get sore. Only bad thing is that I just got a pair on my new DH bike, and on the very first ride I took a spill and ripped a huge chunk of rubber out of the right one. Luckily it was my grip and not the frame though.

 well i bought these grips allmost a year ago and i still run the same pair, they have wore down to the plastic in the last few weeks but even the rubber that is left is enough, they get sliddy when wet but after you have used them wet for 2 minutes they go grippy again, never using another grip now

 These grips are good but i find that you should wear gloves most of the time while riding because when our hand start sweating the diamond pattern dosen't grip as well when wet

 Super slim to prevent hand cramp or arm pump and provide incredible grip with or without gloves. The lock-on system is flawless and provides great color choices to customize your bike.

 Great grips. Comfortable. I like them for racing bmx especially. They kind of wear out fast. Also be careful not to tighten the bolts too much because they strip out very easily.

 really good, long lasting, comfortable, grippy grips, only problem is the price and the rubbish bar ends. if you want a cheaper version of the same thing check out superstar components.

 Love these grips and would definetly buy another pair, they dont budge and are fairly inexpensive. After a couple weeks of riding, they get soft and sticky which dont let go of your hands for perfect riding.

 Basically...these grip like hell and are real easy to put on. They are very good when wearing gloves and are not so bad when riding without. The only bummer with these (like most lock-ons) is putting the stup Lock Ons on!!!

 ODI makes a very grippy and comfortable grip. It comes in a variety of colors but is a little pricey. These grips have taken some road rash and tree encounter and are still in great condition

 These grips are good value for money, however they're rather un-comfortable for long distance rides and would'nt recommend them for XC or AM.

 These grips are lush, a bit harsh on the hands to begin with, but once they get to that semi-worn, soft feel they are awesome.

 It's the standard in mountain bike grips for a reason. Small outer diameter for comfort and the clamps never slip or drop end plugs.
