Race Face Performance Products have some of the most popular handlebars on the market today. So it makes perfect sense that the Canadian company would also offer several pairs of MTB grips. The Half Nelson Grips seen above are designed to give you a super tacky, thin feel right out of the box. They are available in a wide variety of colors and feature a slim, low-profile design that uses a single lock-on clamp per grip.
Grips perform better than I expected. They are thin and soft, and very tacky. Based on the pictures I was worried about a lack of texture but there is plenty of grip, even in wet conditions. Bought the orange and it's a perfect match to the orange accents on my '14 Giant TranceX29.
Love them! Would buy again.
Super grippy. thin. smooth. Great for riding no gloves because they are so grippy, even in the heat and humidity of NC. I think they get stickier when wet, to a point.
I first got these to replace my worn out stock grips on my trail bike. I have had them for a year now and I love them. I bought another pair for my hard tail as well. They are a little sticky which adds some grip and clean up good with some water and dish soap or window cleaner on a paper towel (don't know if the window cleaner is harmful) They are holding up great even after a year and a few hundred miles of banging into trees and rocks. I will most likely put a pair of these on every bike I own in the future unless I find a better grip.
Bought these grips for a Niner WFO build and they work great! They nice and thin yet still provide comfort on long rides. I plan on using them on my next build. Highly recommended!
I have ridden about 50 miles with these and I absolutely love them. Worth every penny super easy to install.
Ordered the turquoise for my Yeti. The look and feel is awesome. They're also very comfortable and not too thick like some grips.
These grips look great, feel great and lock right down. I would install these on all my bikes.
