OK, I admit it, I bought these grips on impulse because I had a tarty moment and liked the look of them, and whilst they weren't the cheapest available, at £7 they were less than half the price of some lock-on grips.
They might not be to everyone's tastes, but I think they actually look better in the flesh than in the pictures, and they'd be especially effective if paired with a bar of the same colour as the plastic inner core.
I had originally worried that the thin strips of rubber making up the outer "web" would feel uncomfortable, move about, or become unstuck from the rigid plastic core, but I've been really pleased with how they've performed. The rubber is soft enough to give very good purchase and not cause "hot-spots" or soreness, but at the same time is very securely bonded, and even after several really hard rides in appalling conditions, it's still firmly in place, and not showing any signs of weakness.
The only down-side that I can see is that they might be a little too narrow for some people, although this isn't a problem restricted to these particular grips. In line with most double-ring lock-on grips, the total length is somewhere in the region of 135mm, with the rubberised section accounting for about 110mm of that. This doesn't give much room for movement before one or other side of the hand starts lying on the metal rings, and folks with large hands might want to consider single-ring or extra-wide lock-on grips, such as DMR's Loccd, or Superstar's Excel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jedi Look cool online, but seem a bit cheapo in the flesh
Bought these just based off the photo looking cool, but they aren't actually that great looking in the flesh.
They are going on someone else's bike, so not sure how they perform/feel as a grip yet.
I guess they will be just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 great grips!
I was slightly nervous about these as wasn't sure how the birdcage would feel but no problems. Grips provide a great surface for the gloves to hang onto and feel much better than previous, a great purchase!

I like these grips for the firm, tough black rubber. They are not particularly spongy or rubbery, and give a nice secure feel while holing the handle bars.
I am wearing these guys with the Fox Sidewinder, and together there is no spongy, slippery gel getting in the way of breaking and turning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VeggieTrailTroll Hold on to these bad boys!!!!
Changed my stock grips (which were very comfy and soft) as rubber was starting to flex & twist....so opted for these for two reasons. 1 twin lock on grips & 2 the blue tube that slid on under the rubber. They look amazing on the white bars I had @ the time and since then look very tastey with my blue spank spoon bars. ( the colour match of the two blues is very good indeed).
They are a harder rubber grip than my previous, which was noticeable even with gloves on but they do not move at all. So if you want a grip that is tough rather than some that feel like a marshmallow and want to add a hint of colour to your bike, these could make you a happy chap.
