Grip Shift or Custom Sizes
You can cut ESI grips with sharp scissors, utility knife, pipe cutter, etc. Hold next to your bar and cut leaving an extra 1/8" in length. We recommend Chunky style for a smooth transition on Grip Shift.
Clean handle bars. Press in End Caps. Using Rubbing Alcohol or Windex clean inside of ESI MTB grips, wet bar and inside of grip, slide onto bar. Rotate grip to have the Thicker side towards palm. Let dry for 24 hours.
Slide a screw driver with a dulled point (or something similar) under grip (careful not to scratch bar or stretch grip), squirt Rubbing Alcohol, Windex or water under grip, twist grip off bar. Clean inside of grip with Rubbing Alcohol or Windex and reinstall. If you have access to a compressor just blow them off.
Lightest and very comfortable grip available in the market
No slipping, no twisting these grips stay put. Super comfortable for XC riding. Really durable if you don't hit them with anything. Kinda pricey for grips but they are worth it for how long they last and how your hand fell after a ride.
I almost passed them up the first time because i thought they were made of the foam crap you get on a cheap department store bicycle. They are made of 100% silicone, I have them on all my bikes. They have not stretched, gotten dry or brittle in any way. I have the whites on one of my bikes, they get pretty brown during the ride but it almost completely washes right off
They seem cheap until you learn how many trees you clip when you ride. First ride I ripped mine to where it was no longer usable. They are crazy comfortable though. If they would only make a lock on version maybe that would protect the grip. Or I could learn to ride better.
