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!

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.

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

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/Another one is the Dunlop Viper dry overgrip this tape is thicker so one layer is enough, this one last the same.

Did you ever try it? I had my doubts before and for me is a must to have for a good session.

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.
