    Grips are feeling great

    What could be better than my new Jones bar?? The grips that make it feel even better! Nice thickness, really comfortable, great price. Highly recommended.

    ESI Grips - great product

    Posted by Dan on 27th Jul 2017

    Love the grips; very comfortable. The instructions say to pull the grips onto the handlebars in one motion WITHOUT STOPPING. They're not kidding! If you stop pulling, it will be just about impossible to get them on the bar. I highly recommend spraying Windex inside the grips prior to pulling them on; the wide spray and the ammonia in the Windex provides a much better coating of lubricant prior to pulling them on the bars.

    Extra Chunky, extra comfortable

    They were a real bear to get on the bar, but worth the effort. They look great and perform even better -- great bump and vibration absorption as well as good grippiness even when sweaty or wet.

    ESI Silicone grips for H-Bars

    Posted by David Soderberg on 4th Jul 2017

    Nice and fat for my large hands and awesome that Jones got these extra long for their bars. I love the Ergon grips for my mtb but find that I don't really need the extra palm support with the H-bars because of the upright position. Also love the feel of silicone over foam. Get these! When putting these on your bars, make sure to really get them wet with alcohol/ whatever volatile you are using to "lubricate" the grips before putting them on.

    ESI grips

    very comfortable grips really help with the angle of bars when doing hard braking as well as being a very comfortable diameter

    Ahh, squishy.

    Posted by Craig on 2nd Jun 2017

    These optimize bonding time between you and your handlebar. A little squishy, really grippy, and plenty long enough. DISH SOAP IS THE SECRET TO APPLYING THEM. You're welcome.

    ESI Extra Chunky Silicone Grips

    Posted by JW on 31st May 2017

    Bought these to go with an Aluminum SG Loop Bar. Recommend them. Put the regular ESI grips on my town bike, an old (1990) solid-frame trek MTB on which I installed a "Northroad" style handlebar and use as my town and road bike. I found that the regular ESI's pretty much took care of hand numbness for me, so I went for the Extra-Chunky when I bought the SG H-bar for my other bike, a Salsa Bucksaw. A bit of a pain to install but otherwise very highly recommended.

    Super Comfy

    Posted by MikeyLikeyBikey on 30th May 2017

    These Chunky grips came with my Jones Spaceframe when I first got it. They are very comfortable and feel great even without gloves. I had to play around with the length of the grips because I wanted my brakes to be a little closer to the ends of the H-bar. I also ride in the tight confines of East Coast trails so the ends would get chewed up going through tight trails that go between trees or when I layed the bike on it's side. Removing and installing takes a bit of effort, but once installed they don't move at all on the bar. If you have small hands like me, with thick winter gloves the grips would feel too thick and it was harder to control the bike. I would swap them out in the winter with some thin but long lock on grips. It's also worth mentioning that the thickness is not the same all around. You should put the thicker, cushier part where your palm would rest and the thinner part under your brake levers/shifters.

    ESI Chunky Grips and Jones Loop H-bar

    Posted by CanyonBluffs on 24th Apr 2017

    This past Saturday I went on a fairly long city tour with my new Jones Loop H-bar and fresh ESI Chunky grips. Prior to installing this new equipment, I was vexed by numbness in my wrists and forearms. The Loop gives me so many different options for hand positions now. The chunky grips provide an extra measure of cushioning when passing over bumps, or cracks in the pavement, or just rough road surface. I did not on the Saturday ride, so I am very satisfied with the performance of this equipment on my bicycle.

    ESI Grips

    Tough to get on, but once there, they are comfy and really long for more hand positions. Short term review only as of now.

    Extra chunky and looking good!

    Posted by Michael on 16th Mar 2017

    I've had these installed for a couple weeks now and they were super easy to install and they look and feel great! I've been riding exclusively on asphalt since installation but have no doubt they'll take the edge off washboard, roots and rocks! My hands don't slip and all and stay where I put them. I watched a YouTube video for installation where a guy poured rubbing alcohol onto the bar ends, plugged one end of the grips, poured a little into the grips, shook it, then slid it on. I did the same and installation was a breeze and they haven't shifted or twisted at all even in the cold and rain. They are great insulators against the cold metal. I highly recommend!
