ODI’s new Aaron Gwin signature grips have landed in the country and should be at your local shop now for $49.95, if they’re not. ask for them! If you like your grips thin, light and super tacky then these are for you. I’ve just mounted a set up on the Nomad and in the car park they feel amazing. They have big boots to fill though, Santa Cruz’s new grips that I’ve been running on the bike until now have been pretty much been the BEST grips I’ve ever used, and the single lock on AG1s are pretty similar in design with the one collar and mushroomed end.
They do have a few unique features though. The contrasting ribbed lines are raised and match up with the articulation points in your hand for added control and unlike the Santa Cruz grips they have alloy protection underneath the bar ends. They’re also a little slimmer for that trail feel. Look for a full review in out the Feb Issue.
