ODI Elite Grips launched. Not just any grips…

by 1

We actually saw these for the first time at Eurobike, but ODI asked us to be quiet about them for the few weeks leading up to Interbike. Their new Elite grips put the padding where your weight rests, and take it away from where it doesn’t, leading to the same overall diameter of grip, but with more padding where it’s needed. It’s such a startlingly obvious idea in retrospect, we’re surprised no one thought of it sooner. They start shipping on October the 1st from distributor Ison.

Outwardly they look like many other grips.

A cross section should make apparent what’s going on.

This is the burliest of the three new grips. All are single clamp designs.
P1040481
The Elite Flow has a knurled design with a waffle on the back for grip.
P1040483
The Elite Pro has extra padding to dampen vibrations, waffle underside, and a more heavily reinforced end than the other grips.
P1040484
The Elite Motion has a simple knurled design all over the grip.

Indexing marks to help you put the padding exactly where you want it.

    pretty sure (cos I’ve been using them for ages) that ESI have been doing this for years with their foam grips.
