So what grips do you use or ype of grip? I just bought some Kona cowan l.o.g from crc. Picked those cos they are the skinny cross cut type well half of it is. Used to like porcipaws cos they were slim. So chunky,slim or foamies what do you use.

Odi ruffians were good but wore too fast. Odi extreme hurt my (dry) hands. Race face good n evil are comfy but not lock on. (Had a bad crash one tome due to slippery grips - lock on since until recently on my retrobike).
Lizard skins chargers are very comfy but not seen much use so unsure on wear time.
Yeti hardcore for me though. Yes theyre chunky but they really comfy and soft and have outlasted at least the ruffians 3 times over and the set im on now are second hand too! Got another back up set.

Yeti on one bike as the look is right.

Peaty lock ons on the other more functional bike, comfy and super grippy soft rubber.
