Product Review: Get a Grip

September 18, 2012

We have a new bike-accessory to torture-test at Bike friendly North Shore, a pick ’n’ mix handlebar grip that you customize yourself. GripRings are made of silicone rubber and available in 12 hues from retro-brown to shocking-pink. You buy the colours and quantity you require and arrange them as you see fit. They certainly look cool, but do they perform? I’ll be finding out in the following weeks.

I asked for a purple, black and white combo to compliment my mountainbike’s paint. I figure if anything’s going to test a grip’s performance it’s manhandling a 17kg singlespeed through a wet muddy forest. But I’ll start with a leisurely cruise to work tomorrow, we don’t want to rush things!
