Folks,
probably a bit of a strange one, but does anyone know of companies that sell sets of grips that are different lengths - i.e. for 1x10 drivetrains? The trick is, the shifter is a SRAM X4 gripshift..

I have had a look at the usual suspects, but no-one seems to sell mixed-length pairs of shifters so slightly at a loss..

I would rather not have to buy 2 pairs (set of each length) if I could help it!

Looking for Lock-ons I pressume?
only one that comes to mind is Ergon, I always buy two sets of Odi Roques
ESI grips are easy to chop and a good option too.

esi silicone are very easy to trim to length & are surprisingly comfortable grips.

Tbh I haven't heard of esi before, but I like the look of them!

The thin ones should do the trick - the grips are for my son's giant stx jr, so need t be narrow.

I do use lockon grips on my bike(odi rogues!) and like them, but the sizing (diameter ) would be a little big for him.

I do have a set of hope grip doctors spare, so his bike *may* get a little..... Blinged up as well :-)

Thanks all for info!
