2012 Dirt 100: ESI Grips

These ESI grips are the first silicone grips that we’ve ever come across but they’ve been something of a revelation.

Even the skinnier ‘Racer’s Edge’ version offers an unbelievable amount of comfort. Part of that has to be down to the material itself, but we also really like the way they’ve made the hole off–centre, as it means you get a skinny grip with a bit more material where you need it, and less where you don’t.

You’d also think that a grip that doesn’t have any pattern or texture on the surface would leave your hands flying all over the place, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Somehow they even seem to get better in the wet, and that smooth finish obviously helps even further in the comfort stakes, particularly if you don’t wear gloves. Definitely worth trying out.

Price: Racer’s Edge £14.50, Chunky £15.50
