The Jones H-Grips are made of EVA foam, they are very light. They are available in lengths to fit each of the two widths of H-Bars perfectly.  The H-Grips for 710mm H-Bars are 205mm long, and the H-Grips for 660mm H-Bars are 165mm long.  The grips can be used, and will work fine with the bar plugs that come in the H-Bars, but we wanted to include larger, more protective bar plugs with our grips, so that your grips won't get torn up as easily, and that's what these grips come with.  

Jeff also made sure the details are just so: the ends of the grips are beveled to meet the angle of the bar plug, so that the plug can protect the end of the grip better, which is really important when you're laying the bike down on its side.  The bar plugs themselves have a captured nut in the wedge so that when you loosen the bolt to remove the grips, the nut stays in place and the plug comes right out!  And now both the nut and the bolt that threads into it are stainless steel to resist rust!  The longest versions (for 710mm H-Bars) of the grips with their bar plugs weigh about 2.4 oz (60 grams), making them the lightest grips available for the Jones H-Bars and a great option for anyone who's looking to shave some weigh without sacrificing comfort!

Jones H-Grip expanding plugs included!

Grips are sold as pairs.


Installation Instructions: Remove old bar plugs before installation…

1. EVA Foam: clean handlebar first using alcohol.  Use a high-quality spray adhesive* such as 3M Super 77 to keep the grips locked on in all conditions.  Spray enough inside the grip and on the handlebar to lubricate them, then quickly slide the grip onto the bar, scooping out excess from the inside of the grip, and in between the grip and controls as the grip nears the correct position.  
*Adhesive can be used on aluminum, carbon and titanium H-Bars when installing the EVA Foam grips.

Note: You only have about 15 seconds to work with the adhesive -- Have everything ready!

2. Insert the expanding bar plugs fully into the end of the bar and tighten to supplied stainless steel bolts using a #2 Phillips screwdriver until the plugs stay in place when you try to move them.

Get the grips installed by a qualified mechanic if you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself.

!WARNING: Always ride your bike with appropriate bar plugs installed.  In the event of a crash, an open handlebar can result in serious injury.  Before every ride always try twisting the grips to make sure they are tight.  Do not ride your bike if the grips are loose because doing so can result in serious injury or even death.

    EVA H-Grips

    Posted by Aaron Couture on 19th Oct 2018

    I bought the long ones. Cover bars completely for plenty of hand positions. I have big hands and they are big enough that I don’t have a problem having cramped hands. Alloy end caps are nice for the extra grip protection. Fit perfectly over the gnarwol too!

    H-bars, and H-grips

    Great bars, with just the right height and pullback for an old guy like me, and the grips are perfect for the bars. So glad I bought 'em!

    Handlebar Grip Testing

    Posted by Cody on 7th Jul 2018

    I purchased The Jones Gnarwal aero attachment, Kraton H Grips and EVA H Grips all at the same time to test multiple setup options in preparation for doing a triathlon on a fatbike, and for taking that same fatbike to troll around New Zealand with for a month. Other than those two extraneous purposes I primarily use my bike as a commuter for work, weekend shenanigans, and the occasional bikepacking trip. After testing all the varying setup options (H Bar with Kraton grips vs EVA grips, Gnarwal with Kraton grips vs EVA grips) I concluded the following: I prefer the Jones Kraton H-Grips on the handle bars because of their tackier feel which helps my hands feel more secure while riding in a more upright position. I prefer the softer, more "luxurious" feel of the these EVA H Grips with the Gnarwal attachment. I favor the way they feel griping a tube in an "aero" position over the Kraton Grips. I gave these 4 stars because ultimately I preferred the Kraton Grips for my handlebars which is what I imagine most people reading this review will be looking for. However, in the specific instance of choosing between the the offerings the more cushioned feeling of the EVA grips for the aero position offered by the Gnarwal attachment wins out.

    Excellent Grips and End Plugs, a little pricey when you add shipping to the price, comes out to 31 dollars n change, but they work great and are super comforable
