Grips that still grip with sweaty hands
« 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.

Truth is i care most about them not slipping on sweaty hands.What would be the best ones for this situation?

Well all rubber grips are going to get slippery with sweaty hands, just choose some that have a rough pattern.
For example: WTP Raptor or Eastern Coral

Good thought.
Would boiling them make any difference?

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
