all grips (for me) wear out about every 1.5 - 2 years. I tried these years ago and have been happy ever since. Low cost, no frills, but the stick on the bars and your hands won't slip. I do always wear riding gloves and that too helps with the traction. I cannot find any reason to try and use any other grip.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
