Grip it Good
Riding and racing mountain bikes takes a good mix of mental and physical strength. A rider that’s strong in the head and strong in the legs often performs well. A rider’s mental strength can often be summed up in one word: Confidence!
So how does this relate to our grips? It is confidence. If a rider doesn’t have confidence in their equipment, then they won’t have confidence in their performance either. Confidence is key, and for our team, one of those keys is ESI Grips. In the cold, in the wet, in the steep, and in the gnar, we grip confidently.
If you already use ESI Grips, than good for you! If not, let us share some of our favorite features:
Awesome Colors: Needing that special something to match the color of your new frame? Have a favorite color you like to accent with? These grips come in a rainbow of color choices, and are easily cleansed so they always look great.
Easy to Install: With a little rubbing alcohol, these grips slip on easy-peasy. Once the rubbing alcohol dries, these things grip your bars stronger than Jim Duggan grips his 2×4’s. No throttle!
Vibration Dampening: The silicone rubber not only grips harder than a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick, but they also dampen vibrations and protect the ends of your fancy-schmancy carbon bars when they get too close to rocks and trees. Bonus!
We couldn’t be any happier with these grips, which is why we’ve used them exclusively for several seasons now! Keep on the lookout for our team bikes and check out which colors our riders use, including their custom-colored 3-piece grips!
