The first decent bike company collab of 2010 is here and it joins two stalwarts ODI and Troy Lee Designs to produce some truly radical lock on grips. These aren't just another grip with a logo on it, they have been specially designed with the following features: grooved channels to prevent mud and water build up; custom offset angled flanges, providing more usable grip surface; unique undercut pads, providing a slim comfortable feel with maximum grip; and over-moulded flap gives added protection on outside clamp. They also have laser-etched lock jaw clamps with the famous Troy Lee Designs logo and come in four unique colour combinations: white with red clamps, black with grey clamps, yellow with purple clamps and red with black clamps. The Wideopen website says they will be available mid April.
