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

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.

Hi Mal 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.

Hello,
The last discussions have been a little longer than expected. Since I am currently looking for arm grips, I wanted to take this opportunity to ask if anyone can recommend arm grips that dampen especially well. I have pain in my wrist and therefore I can only use the BMX to a limited extent.


I would be happy about any advice!


Many thanks in advance!

Hey guys i just wanted to let you know that i found a pair of grips that work well even on sweaty hands.

They are the Federal Command grips.

They are thick too and absorb the impact forces.

If anyone else has such problem check them out!

These sound promising as I have some wrist issues. I may try them out.
