I've been looking for Euro made retro (early to mid 90ies) European made grips and bar ends.
Apart from Xlite and USE there don't seem to be any other European makes and no Grips to think of.

Anyone have any ideas?

Gut feel says that there must have been people in Italy making them - Ambrosio for example.

Ambrosia? Grips or bar ends?

Art-bikes on eBay from Turin. The pricey seller we were chatting about back along.

He's got some funky bar ends .

I don't think X-lite made them, just specified and branded some.

USE made theirs though.

Good choice,

These were first items I bought from him. Then the barflex carbon/Kevlar bars.

Conversely, I thought that X lite did make their earlier & high-end bar ends in house? especially those with the Spun ends (alto & pro models). I thought it was later that they started buying catalogue products (seatposts & chicken stix). Happy to be wrong.
