Any body using them? Any good?
From the report off a mate today. Terrible.
He did the bolts up to the correct torque and they slipped on the bar. He torqued them a tiny bit more and they stripped. And no he's lost a bar end cap. He's busy buying some ODIs now.
I like mine but I was lifting the bike over a gate a few weeks back and the end cap caught and fell off.
Snapped one side of the actual grip where the end cap slots in clean off. I jammed it in and its stayed on so far......
The actual grips are really nice and grippy but, despite being a Hope fan, I don't think I will buy another pair as you have to replace the lot when worn out.
Was literally about to order a set from bike tart, back to google to find something else now.
I fancied some because the grip area looks to extend to the very end of the bar...
Up off now tho....
Mine have been ok so far. No slipping, nice feel and survived punching a few rocks and trees already. I chose them because I tend to let the edge of my hands hang off the ends and outer lockrings usually just cause me annoyance.
