Title: Grips that still grip with sweaty hands
Post by: mal on May 12, 2020, 07:18:02 PM
I currently use ODI Longnecks but now that the weather is hot they slip a lot when my hands get sweaty..

Any recommendations?

I am looking for something soft with enough ''meat''.i don't like slim grips.The Longnecks are perfect for me in feel and diameter but they slip a lot..

are they the super soft version?

Shadow has the DCR compound grips that seem promising

I noticed that my odyssey Aaron ross keyboard grips wore in amazingly after a few sessions and seem like they'd be good with sweat

The IGI grips are decent. You may want to find a pair of the old Jive Handles tentacle grips. The tentacles wore down quick, but the grips remained sticky.

I use the harder rubber ODI Longnecks and live in a warm climate
of California..I do not have that problem with those ODI"S..there
are different types of ODI grips!


CAN YOU EVEN GET THE JIVE TENTACLES GRIPS ANYMORE?
I have not seen them in awhile?

Yes. You can still find the jive grips on ebay. I've also found them by visiting a few bike shops in small towns.

Just do not get the soft compound ODI Longnecks and the
V-2 Longnecks are the ones I have and they are slipfree and
hard compound. Soft x compound Longnecks and the soft x
Longnecks are the two you do not want to get and they tend
to tear and wear out faster.


The Lock On ODI Longnecks grips are a bit more expensive,
but will last longer for you and I will myself pay the extra that
 I do not have to worry about grips for awhile.

The ODI Longneck ST series grips are good cheap grips to get
and at around $12 here are ones I used to use awhile ago and there
are many ODI Longneck grips to choose from(5-6 different ones!)

Screw E-Bay and people rip you off and just bad memories with
things on E-Bay and never liked those grips anyways and just said
I have not seen them for awhile!

Odyssey Aaron Ross keyboard grips huh and never used them and
I have been an ODI man for a while now and I have never use the
Odyssey grips

Truth is i care most about them not slipping on sweaty hands.What would be the best ones for this situation?
I don't have sweaty hands but i live in Greece and from May to October its hot here!

Well all rubber grips are going to get slippery with sweaty hands, just choose some that have a rough pattern.
For example: WTP Raptor (http://www.global-flat.com/parts/part/1191) or Eastern Coral (http://www.global-flat.com/parts/part/1641)

Good thought.
Would boiling them make any difference?

it's been said that it will give them that broken-in feel more immediately

I try to not ride if it is over 90 degrees as that is a problem in sweaty
hands and other problems and I usually ride earlier in the morning or
later at the night spot that has bright white lights until 10PM.Greece is
like unbearable heat and I have been there a few times and yeah here in
Cali..California we have intense heat also and why I wait until those times
to ride.


But again use harder rubber compound grips as that does help!
Title: Re: Grips that still grip with sweaty hands
Post by: mal on May 19, 2020, 11:25:02 AM
I guess i have to find a pair with harder compound then..
I am also thinking about ''fingerless'' gloves.I used these in the past but they also slipped because the glove's fabric grips better to the grip's rubber than the skin. So there was play between my hand and the fabric and i didn't have stable grip..
But maybe it was that gloves that had the issue

In that heat..I would not use gloves for the obvious reasons
that you just said and also if I ever use gloves,as I use the
fingerless ones.But that is only during the rainy season when
it is cooler here and I am riding in my few undergrounds that
I have to ride in.

Here is another option, Renthal Original Series grips are available in several compounds.

Firm compound: https://www.renthal.com/road/original-series-road?product_id=2777 (https://www.renthal.com/road/original-series-road?product_id=2777)

I think that link was for the motorbike gripss, so the inner diameter of one grip is slightly larger to accommodate a throttle.

Your right, the correct grips are the "push on" grips
Title: Re: Grips that still grip with sweaty hands
Post by: rideflat43 on May 21, 2020, 09:33:47 AM

yep or what we call the push and pull and put a screwdriver in with very little
squirts of hairspray..grips and the hair spray dries pretty quickly and do not use
any type of oils..takes forever\\\\\///////////////// to dry!

Try the next alternative
I do like to use tennis over grip for racquets, the Tourna Mega Tac XL tape is really good for sweaty hands, use only one layer over any grip, if you ever experienced tennis elbow injury apply two layers, is super good for your hands and arms, it will give you comfort.
 You can get it at any tennis sports store or online, 10 xl roll is no more than $20 and last for 4 to 6 months.https://www.tourna.co.uk/product/tourna-tac-black-xl-10-grip-roll/ (https://www.tourna.co.uk/product/tourna-tac-black-xl-10-grip-roll/)Another one is the Dunlop Viper dry overgrip this tape is thicker so one layer is enough, this one last the same.

Tennis grip for bike grips


No..I do not even think so!
Title: Re: Grips that still grip with sweaty hands
Post by: anthony on May 23, 2020, 10:33:00 PM
Did you ever try it? I had my doubts before and for me is a must to have for a good session.
Title: Re: Grips that still grip with sweaty hands
Post by: rideflat43 on May 25, 2020, 01:03:07 AM

Nah I like my ODI Longnecks and today is one of those
days as it is 93F out right now and luckily I have two real
good clay basketball courts to ride on and both lit up until
10PM.Tomorrow suppose to be 95 and then Wednesday is
suppose to be 98.


I put up the pic of the Blackhawk basketball courts and the
Sycamore Park basketball courts are twice as large and long
..Yes they are lit up until 10PM.


So, really sweaty palms and wet grips are not an issue for me
or for OSG when we ride and yeah!

Here is what I use, the dunlop viper-dry over grip is one the best ones at the moment for me. (black one)
The tourna is good as well, both have a tac grip. (is the grey one)These over grips are cheap and you wont regret the small investment.
