Rated 5 out of 5 by wolfinthewind locks on both ends
these grips have a good shape and fit youre hands well . they lock on both sides and come with end caps . they are well made and not to soft and work really well .

I like the idea of contoured grips so bought these to try. First off I think they were too big for my medium/small hands so they werent very comfortable for me.
I think contoured could work, but this was the wrong shape for my hands, I think the bulge should be at the other end perhaps.
The hex shape doesnt work for grips in my opinion, maybe for the underside, but not for the top, I could feel the edges digging into my palms and I didnt like it.
The biggest problem is that the foam slips around the grips, you can twist and move it, that shouldnt happen on grips.

Bonne prise en main, installation facile et robuste.
La forme du grip permet un appui confortable dans le creux de la main.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Duffers Average grip in the dry, awful in the wet.
These grips are ok in dry conditions, but in the wet they are....AWFUL....
I've tried them with a couple of different gloves just to make sure it wasn't the gloves, but no matter what I wore, they were super slippy as soon as there was a sniff of rain.
The foam also rotates around the grip, so despite them being lock on, they still rotate.
They're coming off my bike until the day where it never rains in Britain.
I wouldn't buy these grips, there are far better grips out there. Giant Lock on for one, which is probably what I'll go back to.

I bought a pair of the Ritchey ergo grips recently after trying a friend’s Lapierre foam grips which seemed to be really comfortable. I have been getting a bit of numbness in my left hand while riding and thought the foam might help. While the Ritchey grips look like they are of a decent quality, I found them to be really uncomfortable for a couple of reasons. The first of which is the hex shaped profile, which has absolutely nothing in common with a gripping hand and the second is the so called ergo design which also seemed unnatural to grip and caused a brand new pain in my left .
I think a standard cylindrical shaped grip works just fine when you find the correct diameter and the material that suits whether it is rubber or foam. I really don’t know who would find these comfortabl, although a 25mm spanner comes to mind. Also unlike the pro koryaks I replaced the grips rotate independent of the lock-on clamps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Superman Real grips!
I have tried many grips for XC racing and trail riding. Some grips felt too thin, too little cushioning, too much cushioning or simply harsh after a day on the saddle.
This is the first time I tried foam grips and I loved it. You don't need to cut them to change anything on the handlebar (compared to many foam grips) due to the firm lock-on ends. The one side of the foam bulges out a bit more to give stability when braking.
I am a rider who loves bling, so was a bit hesitant on trying these grips due to a lack of colour. It does look good and the quality shines.
No qualms, well recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous No estoy contento con ellos, al principio muy comodos, pero cuando le haces kilometros, el material de lo que esta hecho se hace muy fino de los apretones, sobre todo, por la parte de fuera.

Le confort et l'ergonomie sont bien présents.
Le système de fixation n'est pas du type lock-on et il est difficile de les bloquer en tout cas sur mon cintre carbone.
En quelques heures d'utilisation, la mousse se rétracte déjà sur le manchon.
