GRIPS TEST | WEAR AND TEAR

Grips. Do they really matter? Of course they do, they are the main contact point between us and our bike. Finding the right ones for you can make all the difference, but it all comes down to personal preference. Here we have a selection for pretty much every taste: lock–on, push–on, flanged, waffled, thin, thick, long…and colourful. We’ll spend the next month sorting through these and finding our favourites.
