Review | The Renthal Traction lock-on grips are UltraTacky – in a good way

by 0

What are the best mountain bike grips? Wil’s tested a bunch over the years, and here he’s put together five of his favourite lock-on grips. Over to Wil!

Makers of handlebars, stems, and chainrings for all things moto and MTB, Renthal currently splits its off-road grip range into three specific categories; Push-On, Lock-On, and Traction Lock-On, all of which are manufactured in the UK.

Each design has its own fans, but it’s the Traction grips shown here that I’ve been using for the past six months.
