PRESS RELEASE: OneUp Components



OneUp Announce New Thick and Thin Grips



With grips, one size doesn’t fit all. Which is why we’re expanding our grip lineup with two new grip models to give riders more choice. At OneUp we make the parts we want to ride. Our expanded lineup means we can all ride our favourite grips.

Both grips feature our new Durable Grip Ends. The harder rubber compound ends help prevent your grips from tearing when you crash and keep them looking fresh for longer. They’re also comfortable if you run your hands over your bar ends.

Thick Grips

The Thick Grips are 35mm diameter at their thickest and 32.5mm at their thinnest point. They're designed to maximize grip and minimize arm pump by giving you extra cushioning, a softer compound and added features for a fully locked in feel. They have a subtle palm bulge and ridges on the underside to fit in the creases of your fingers.


Thick Grip Features
Diagonal thumb ribs
Finger ridges underneath the grip
Palm bulge with mini cushion pads
Offset grip has more material on top for extra cushioning
Durable grip ends
Mini flange

$24.50 USD / $34.50 CAD / €29.50 EU / £24.50 UK

In stock and available now at oneupcomponents.com

Thin Grip Features
Diagonal thumb ribs
Palm heel mini cushion pads
Durable grip ends

$24.50 USD / $34.50 CAD / €29.50 EU / £24.50 UK

 One-Up continuing to be one of the most practical problem-solving companies in MTB. Solving rider's actual ergonomic and use-case problems instead of offering "5% more efficient" or "5% lighter." And at reasonable prices. Love to see it.
  • 89 13
 Ergon has been doing this for years.
  • 16 14
 @Three6ty: That is true, but a lot of their grips are 10$ USD more than the OneUp options. They lack a thicc option as well
  • 38 20
 @co2x2: $10.... on a $5000+ mtn bike. Really. And for arguably, the most important comfort item on your bike.
I would pay $20 more. Not saying these One Up Grips are not good. Just pointing out that this is not new.

 @co2x2: I have the fat version of ergon grips. So yes they do have them

 @Three6ty: I wouldn't say One-Up is the first to make 35mm grips for big hands, but they're certainly among the first. I know Sensus makes a 35mm grip and I think Ergon might. Their website says the Ergon GA2 Fat is 33mm diameter, but elsewhere on the internet is says the GA2 Fat grip is 32, 35, and even 37mm so who knows. I guess the point I was making wasn't that One-Up is the first company in the universe to make thick grips, but that they seem to calmly and reasonably look at what problems actual riders are experiencing and address those, even if it's a niche customer or obscure problem. Sort of like how most bike clothing companies make 50 different types of pants and shorts, but only in one inseam length, i.e. "optimizing" for small marginal improvements while failing to solve the most obvious problem of rider fit.
  • 16 2
 What they haven't done though is make the grips longer as well as thicker like Sensus has done with their Meaty Paws grips. Size does matter.....
  • 10 3
 Meaty Paws

 @Three6ty: Absolutely, and so would I. Price is a huge factor for a lot of people though and $25 USD is very competitive!
  • 12 3
 @Three6ty: Ergon uses crap barend plugs instead of molding the grips with a closed end. I lost an Ergon barend plug on the second ride and have noticed more than a few Ergon plugs littering trails in areas where people regularly clip trees. Until Ergon redesigns the ends of their grips, they are a hard "No".

Now, their saddles, absolutely fantastic!

 These look decent. Hated the originals (too thin and uncomfortable) and as a result have been switching between DMR Deathgrip thick and SDG Thrice 33mm. Both extremely comfortable. Thumb ribs are key for comfort, Welcome to the club OneUp.

 Miss Team Robot. I know it's not going to happen, but so wish you'd return to the website

 @bigtim: I concur, not sure why most mtb grips are so narrow. I usually run bmx grips so I can have more room to adjust hand position, Sensus is the only lock on I've found with reasonable width.
  • 10 1
 @Three6ty: Ergon's work does not invalidate One-Up's history of innovative "problem-solving".

 @co2x2: they call them a "fat paw"

 @nnowak: I love Ergon grips with the replaceable bar end. The Ergon bar ends are too narrow though, and don't really protect the edge of the grip. I use Sensus bar ends that are as wide as the grip and don't fall out. Best of both worlds.
  • 5 3
 @Murphius: why would this get down voted? I've used PNW size large grips for a while now, and before that was Raceface in large.

Nothing really new here.

 @Three6ty: Ergon grips were the worst grips I've ever owned .

 @og-squid-mtb: and yet they are the best grips I have ever owned. Its personal preference and they give me the most comfort on my setup. Going on 5+ years on the GA-2 and GA-3 large

 @TEAM-ROBOT: Chromag Squarewave XL. long wearing, palm bulge, double lock and durable metal end. best grip for people with large hands.

might give these a go to compare. love to see companies making options for those of us without TrumpHands.

 @Mtbdialed: I've Tried all of the Chromag grips. Great grips .
  • 3 2
 @BarryWalstead: agreed. I see too many parallels to what PNW did, cheap grips, lots of colors, small and large diameter. I’m happy to see the competition but even the marketing photos OneUp used are nearly exact copies of PNW’s (just look at PNW’s Instagram and you’ll see what I mean).

 @Murphius: On my first pair of PNW and i'm loving the taper grip profile and cushion at the very end of the bar! don't think i'll ever wanna go back to a straight profile grip again. I ran ODI elite pro's for a long time and really like the grip texture and all but it needed another row of cushion blocks on the very end of the grip, it started causing pain in the Pisiform/Triquetrum region of my hand.

 What’s the deal with that inner wiggles pattern of the grip that I refuse buy on any set that had it?

 100%. Loving my 33 mm Oury slip-ons. The above is a tip for normal or small hands only though. Those thick one ups have the same amount of rubber as slip ons lol anyone try the Sensus Emj?

 @mechatronicjf: I've tried the Sensus Emj and the Swayze Single Ply push on's. Big fan of the Swayze push ons - they're on all my bikes. Emj was nice but thicker, I'd say they feel more than 1mm thicker than the Swayze on the bar - not as comfy as the Swayze for my little hands.

 @Mtbnoob23: got the Kevlar ones and found them incredibly thin. Very grippy though. Would be great for someone who wants all the feedback and feel, or has small hands

 The S&M Hoder grips are luxurious. I’ve ridden a bunch of grips and there are the best MTB push ons. DUO Martinez for bmx/djs

 This. No one needs a plastic sleeve, and with a quick wiring, they are not going anywhere, no matter the conditions. Also, having some wire handy on the grip tends to be useful.

 @mechatronicjf: I agree, I've got the ultra traction, pretty thin ive got quite small hands so not too thin for me i think same grip but slightly thicker would be the goldilocks grip! The ultra tractions grip is mad though, hands legit stick to them... in a vaguely gross way when you just feeling it but then during a ride its all good.

 I wrap my bars with cork gasket and electrical tape (like heated sled bars) and stretch grips over them. Odyssey Raiford grips are luscious, there is no lock on equal.

 I love the Meaty Paws diameter, my only gripe is that they are so wide I had to move my controls more inboard.
  • 3 0
 @Tmackstab: yea that makes sense. that's the one thing that keeps me coming back to them though, i like that my hand has room to float horizontally on the grip, all other grips are just wide enough to fit my hands so there's no extra room for movement. could see how that wouldn't be helpful for people without super wide hands though
  • 1 0
 @Tmackstab: My hands don't fit on standard length grips, that's a plus for me!
  • 1 0
 @Tmackstab: I have the opposite problem... meatypaws are nearly long enough, but they are a few mm too big in diameter. More grip size choice would be a good thing I reckon. I would be happy with a meaty paw around 32-33mm dia, but 10mm longer than they currently are.
  • 3 1
 Gotta give the Sqlab 711 Tech & Trail 2.0 a go. They are available in 3 sizes. And while they look a little too "orthopedic" for my taste they simply grip the best for my big hands.

 I picked up a pair of the thick grips yesterday for my DH bikes anad after a few laps of the fairly blown out Whistler bike park, they're my new favourite grips! (coming from years running ODI Elite Pros). They're comfortable, offer great grip and cost effective. Awesome work from the team at @OneUpComponents !!!

 How come they don't have the same pattern? I'd be interested in getting both, to easily compare both at the same time.

But not a fan of grips with that micro-knurled stuff like on the orange ones - it seems to wear out really fast.

 I wear xxl gloves and will only use Chromag Squarewave XL grips, the bump in the middle makes a drastic difference in arm pump for me.

 Check your brake levers position such as too flat/too far to reach as that can heavily affect arm pump too.

 I wonder how these feel compared to the odi elite pros. I've really liked the elite pros, but the ends of the elite pros grips tend to get torn off and they specifically mentioned the ends on these grips are durable. Also seems like the elite pros are somewhere in the middle for thickness compared to these options.
  • 2 0
 Can we have some short, medium, long, and really long ones too? Or at least an option that is 15/20mm longer than standard? All grips are basically the same length, which is too short for my shovel hands. I have sensus meatypaws, which are nearly long enough, but they're a touch too big in diameter as I have quite short fingers.
  • 2 0
 I'll give these a try. I had ESI super chunky which are great but they don't survive a single crash. On Ergon fat now, they work OK but liked the feel of the ESI better. Any tips for something sturdy but softly cushioned in a 33-35 diameter are welcome.

 Been running Odi Rogue lockons for a long time, even back to my dirt bike days. They are 33.5 mm. Liked my Oury lockons, but they lost grip when wet with sweat. These do look nice, may consider next go round.

 @husstler: I’ve been running the Mega Fat Paws for years and tried a pair of Oneups in the largest size. I really like them and have big hands. I’ve tried the WT can grips before and end up twisting them around when riding. I think the slightly flared shape of the Oneup fits me better. Also nice to have a grip that’s not terrifyingly slippery when slightly wet.

 @AlbatrossCafe: I really wanted to like the Sensus Meaty Paws but they were just too much meat for my paws. Maybe the leap in size was too much all at once but they were Jumbo.I ride Death Grips for the name etched on the collar, Brendan and his film, and luckily they are also my favorite feeling grips of all time. I like the ridges on the underside you can dig your fingers into.
