So this is a gravity specific grip for enduro and downhill. It's highly textured to give you a precise, grippy grip. It's great because, again, Ergon is always paying attention to the details. So this grip has a removable end cap, so when you crash, which happens more often on a downhill

bike

, you can replace those things and it just gives the grips more longevity if you crash. This is Ergon's new grip, GD1, which is all the rage, so definitely check it out. Another notable mention that I can't say enough when it comes to Ergon is the GA3.

So this grip has been around for a long time and I have had many friends and clients who have had hand and wrist pain, they tried this with the mini wing and it solved their problem. So it's a little controversial, it's not for everyone, but a lot of people have had this because they've had hand or wrist pain and they really enjoyed the cushioning and comfort. So if you have that, definitely check them out. That covers Ergon, but last but not least GA; Again, this has been something of a check for Ergon for a long time, which has been in our top 10 sellers for a long time.

So Ergon is pretty much one of the brands that has dominated many positions in our best grips historically, but now we have a lot of other brands to talk about as well. Next we have the PNW Loam grips. PNW is a smaller Pacific Northwest brand run by a couple of really passionate and dedicated

mountain

bikers, and this is actually PNW's first grip and it was a big hit for them. Really good rubber and kind of design, texture and price: $19 for this stuff. They really hit the nail on the head for something that is like a really good quality grip for $19 and it comes in a bunch of really cool colors, it has a tapered inner core so you hit it in there and it feels really nice. and sturdy, it seems to be really good at controlling sweat because of the way the channels work, and yes this has really become a very popular grip and it's really cool to see a small brand like PNW come out of nowhere with their first grip. and may it be a great success for them.
So yeah, great, again look at the colors of these things. We made a video about these and their bars and a little more history of their company so check it out if you're a little more interested in PNW if not. I don't recognize them by their dropper posts. Now that we have the death grip DMR bikes, this thing has gained quite a following. They come in a ton of different cool colors, also camo, two different diameters and thicknesses. This grip was designed by Brendan Fairclough. I think that's how you pronounce his name. He's kind of an epic, iconic

mountain

biker, you have to follow his Instagram.
He is a professional world cup racer and a freerider and that is why he became so famous because he is incredibly talented in everything mountain bike related and he is a really cool British guy. He designed these grips with DMR and definitely came up with a unique design that a lot of people have fallen in love with and it's been cool to see a professional rider design a grip with a brand like DMR and have so much success. But I think these have been out for 2 or 3 years and yeah, people love them, they have a nice simple grip, but they have some unique features in terms of the waffle pattern on the bottom, the kind of high diamond pattern , and then kind of like textured ribbing on the inside right there, and then cool little details hidden in all of these things that make them really cool and the camo colors are cool too.
You've probably already heard of Death Grips. I think in terms of looking at the comments whenever we talk about grips, there are always people who just rave about saying they are die-hard death grip fans, so yeah, check these out. Of course, ODI appeared in the video; is a great iconic grip company that I think has been around longer than I've been alive. They make all the grips in the USA, which is really cool - the Elite Pros are our best-selling ODI grips and in fact probably my favorite ODI group, which I use quite often. One thing I like about these if I'm going to Whistler or just a bike park in general when I'm riding somewhere where there are a lot of braking bumps, the cushion they have under the metacarpals is really nice.
It just helps prevent hand fatigue and you know it adds a little bit of bulk to the grip, but it's like it doesn't feel like a bulky grip to me like other grips do. But it doesn't feel like an ultra-thin grip, it's like a perfect midline where it gives you enough cushioning but still doesn't feel bulky. So the elite ODI pros are some of my favorites and some, well-known, long-time favorites of the ODI brand. One brand you probably wouldn't expect to see in this video is SRAM because when you hear that name you think of drivetrains for the most part, but SRAM actually has a very popular locking foam grip, it's as basic and simple as it gets. .
It basically has absolutely nothing and no design other than a textured embossed SRAM logo, a black lock on the removable end caps, and a $19.00 lock on the foam handle. I don't know if foam grips are

your

thing and your price is $19. You want something really nice, clean and simple. This is your guy and for some reason a lot of people really like this stuff. I don't know if I ever would. Give them a try, but some people have a total love and passion for foam grips. So if you do and want a good lock on one, SRAM is surprisingly really good and very popular.
Last but not least, we have the Deity Knuckles. These guys make a lot of great holds. This is the most popular. The knuckles have a nice elegant grip, a nice simple top, a nice waffle pattern on the bottom, 32 millimeters in diameter and a very nice sticky rubber. Deity does a lot of cool things, they recently came out with a new grip called super cush, which is like a nice, really comfortable soft grip that they claim is the most comfortable grip in the world. Anyway, we've written a lot of content about Deity grips because they make some unique designs and cool things and they also have a lot of followers in terms of a good grip and bar company.
So look if you're curious, there are a ton of cool grips on the market right now, all the specs and details on these things in terms of diameters, lengths, color options, thickness options and all that kind of stuff. All of these models will be in a blog article linked below in the video description, so check it out. Again, I know there will be a hundred comments saying, "You forgot these grips" and these are totally the best. There are so many grips it's really hard to choose. We really wanted to go from what we're seeing the majority of our customers buy, love and enjoy in our internal staff as well, and that's how we came up with this selection here.
