Anybody using these at all?

Looked at a set in my LBS and they felt amazing! Really hold the palm of your hand, just wondered what they're like on a bike to use?

I run a pair of these with the integral bar ends as I suffer a bit from wrist pain - got to admit they are really really comfy (about two years experience with them). :D

Don't like the way they look though :cry:

I've heard nothing but rave reviews about them, just look a bit weird. Though seeing them reminded me of cobra grips :lol:

I have these on my Bontrager Ti. Dubious at first, but now I certainly wouldn't want to change them and may well roll them out to my other bikes.

I wouldn't have gone out and got these before, but won some in a race, so decided to use them :wink:

Turns out they are unbelievably comfy, so much so when i used another bike last weekend my hands hurt.
Ive now got some more for that bike too. :wink:

they work for some people & not for others. if you rotate your hands on the bars, or change position a lot (like i do) they're not as ideal.
they're also way overpriced for a grip!

I use them in combination with Grip shiofters. Fantastic but horrible!

Can I recommend the GX versions. These are a bit thinner and allow more hand movement around the grip whilst still being dead comfy. I have a pair and think they answer some of the issues outlined above.
