Revolutionary New Grip Design from Gusset - IsoBar Grips

Apr 1, 2016 at 0:05
by Ison-Distribution  
Gusset IsoBar grips are at the forefront of grip innovation. Utilising the Earth’s precious air these multi discipline grips are built to offer the most adaptable and comfortable feel known in the mountain bike market.

The IsoBar grip is made from a proprietary dual layered rubber compound for arm pump reduction. Complete with an internal bladder, we designed the Isobar to allow complete control over your desired thickness of grip. In the pack you get one valve and one noodle per grip, these are to be inserted directly in to the bar.

Gusset IsoBar Grips

For installation, first drill a 5mm hole in the top of your handlebar, 50mm in board from the end of the handlebar. Next slide the IsoBar valve into the end of the bar, making sure to keep the end of the valve end 3mm from the end of the bar. Now install the IsoBar noodle through the hole you have drilled, and connect to the back of the grip. Slide on the IsoBar grip with the filling port topside until you hear the noodle click into the filling port. The IsoBar grips are now able to be pressurised to the desired thickness and comfort level (max pressure 30 PSI). Finally fit the IsoBar bar end into the end of the handlebars to protect the internal IsoBar valve.

Available from May the 2nd the Gusset IsoBar grips will retail for £59.99. IsoBar patch kits will also be available for trailside grip repairs for £5.99.

Pump it. Grip it. Rip it.

 Just drilled up my carbon bars ready. I have a pack of soba noodles here and a valve from an old tube so I'm just going to do the rest myself. No need for expensive gusset stuff. What do they think we are? Idiots?

 Well, you WOULD be an idiot if you used Soba noodles. Apparently Gwin uses day old spaghetti

 @fecalmaster: sadly theres no pump to get you from a 26er to and ultra superduro 650b

 @felimocl: Your CO2 cartridges should work fine on your handlebars. Just make sure you carry some spares for emergencies.

 Patch kit for trailside grip repairs? Can't I run this tubeless?
  • 66 0
 When will Procore be available for this? I like the idea of running a lower ouster PSI for better grip but want to make sure I don't pinch flat the grip when the brake lever smashes against the bar during a wreck.
  • 36 0
 For even lower PSI you should wait for the + size grips. Will be released right after you buy these.
  • 19 1
 @Endurahbrah: I may just wait for the boost compatible ones that come with twist shifters that work with the new 1x12 system.

 LMFAO!!!

 I could even believe it after reading the news for the whole year.

 This would still be better than those stupid wtb padlock grips..

 exactly my thought, I'd be more likely to try this april fools gag than cut a diagonal chunk out of my handlebars. & I literally have no issue with any of the other "bike industry hates us" stuff, I'm fine with + wheels, pressfit BBs, boost, etc.

 April fools mates! When I read that I should drill my new carbon bars I almost fell from my chair. Then I looked at the corner of my desktop - damn, its this day again - 1st of April. Cheers mates and dont be fulled - we aren't that big cash cows yet!
  • 8 0
 Why can't the industry release all of these great products more often? It seems like all the good stuff comes on in April and then I spend all year trying to track it down Frown

 I want to run my left grip 3 Psi lower than my right one. I've been trying for an hour now to get this set up and I keep ending up with the same pressure both sides. A digital readout would make this much easier to set up.

 I've already drilled out my ec90sl and havoc 35 carbon bars in anticipation of this exciting new product.

 Thanks for solving a problem I've never had. The middle picture in the ad reminds me of "Shake Weight". Actually, the grip it, pump it, rip it slogan could have been ripped off from Shake Weight!
