After wearing Vans for most of our lives, we wanted to see if the Vans waffle pattern would work as well with our hands as it has with our feet. The grip was designed by Cult and sent to ODI for production. Using their proprietary rubber compound, we have created a grip that we hope will become as much of a classic as a pair of Vans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous They were OK
I bought these in November/October and rode them until about April. They do get very sweaty easily, for the first week they were uncomfortable and I didn't like them that much, after a while they wore in as usual. But I never really felt comfy with these grips, they weren't very comfy and they made the blisters on my hands even worse. Use them with Gloves, and another thing. Buy a spare pair of Odyssey Par Ends with these because the ones supplied are terrible, it's hard trying to get them back out and now I have half a bar end still stuck in my bar, so get better ones. But apart from that, they were okay. 3 Stars from me.

I bought these grips in gum about a year ago and put them on my bike. Unfortunately I found them quite hard and quite thick compared with what I am used to, so I took them off again.
However I found them in the garage a couple of months ago and decided to give them another try and I'm glad I did.
They take a little while to soften up (you could try boiling them before riding them) but after a few sessions they are almost sticky to the touch, but not in a bad way.
One aspect of these grips which I did like from the start was the length, I think they are about 160mm and you could probably stretch them to 165/170mm if you really wanted.
Overall, once these grips have worn in they are extremely comfortable and grippy. They also last quite well, much like any other grip made by ODI.
Plus the link with Vans is a nice touch, definitely something a bit different.
I would recommend these to anyone wanting a nice comfy, long grip that lasts. I was wrong to write them off so quickly.

Best grips ever, had them over a year and still have nothing wrong with them, really comfy and dont slip, would never use anything else. My friend has been through 6 pairs of other grips in the time ive had these.
