DMR Death Grips
I rode the thin ones for a while, they were great but the lip did get in the way of shifting occasionally.
There are photos of Deakins bike having the lip cut off just around where the shifter is, so guess it wasn’t just me!
Now running Ergon GD1 which are much nicer, but also £££Posted 2 months agohonourablegeorgeMember
I really like them too, best grips I’ve used, alhough the ends are just soft rubber so can get a bit damaged (a bit – both sets I have are still intact)
Never had an issue with the flange but as above, the flange is now optionalPosted 2 months agonwmlargeSubscriber
I have some, the flange isn’t an issue.
They are fairly uncomfortable when used with bare hands.
They aren’t super comfortable with gloves.
I have the black thick soft ones.
Personally I prefer the ribbed bit and I have an older set of superstar which have this type and they are super comfortable.
I also own some Production Privee CR35 grips and they are wicked.Posted 2 months agoP-JayMember
Love mine, first grips I’ve ever liked actually.
Flange is fine by me, all down to where you like your shifter I guess.
They’re shorter than most grips effectively making the bars wider if you were limited to where you placed your brakes/shifter previously.
They’re very soft though, loads of grip but they wear pretty quickly, but that only means months rather than years for me and they don’t cost much so not an issue.
Helps me channel my inner Brendog, well sometimes, actually once or twice I’ve actually ridden ‘death grip’ (I.E. without a finger on the brake lever ready to ride) it made for a few ‘ohshit’ moments, but I soon learned it only takes a fraction of a second to get my finger to the lever and it means less pointless comfort braking*.
*just in case you were wondering, there is absolutely nothing about the grip that aids or encourages this, other than the words “Death Grip” written on them, which you can’t see whilst riding and it more to do with building a brand and the association with the film. These grips won’t make you act silly unless you want to.Posted 2 months ago
