The extra grip in your gloves gives you a much clearer connection to the bike and it applies equally to street bikes and racers. Even if you use heated grips in winter, fit some of these in the summer and you’ll enjoy a new, closer relationship with your bike. The new dual-compound version is thicker and more durable thanks to the tougher rubber on the inside to provide the structure. So many people have come back to me after I recommended these grips, saying they were amazed at the difference they make. Renthal grips are widely available.
