in 1982 – inadequate things – parts, need to become better. So when we see things that aren’t good enough, like the archaic fashion that grips mount to bars, we rethink them. Rethink them and design something that makes riding better.
Something like our PadLoc series of grips.
By removing the rounded end of handlebars – really, is there a reason that bars have unyieldingly remained rounded – we’ve completely eliminated slippage. A 30 degree plane sloping the last inch toward the bar’s outermost edge ensures there’s no room for fore / aft movement. AND it makes PadLoc grips comfortable. Like foolishly easy on your palms, don’t tell your friends they’re so splendidly comfy.
The best part is, you don’t need a new handlebar. Park Tool just released their new SGI-7 insert for their adjustable saw meaning shops can easily modify the bar you already have.
It’s time to say no to slippage and yes to comfort – why did we ever have to wait so long for this?
Check out the PadLoc grips – available in six shapes and multiple color ways. Available in December.
