Bicycle grips - Everything under control?
Bicycle grips - Everything under control?
High-quality bicycle grips provide in all situations for a good grip and best control of your bike. The handlebar grip is the interface to the handlebar and must give you as much support when wet as in the summer with sweaty hands.
For long tours or when you feel a tingling sensation in your fingers or your hand hurts or becomes numb, you should take a look at the ergonomically shaped bicycle grips. Due to the larger contact surface of the handball, this handlebar handle ensures a significantly more comfortable ride. If you pay special attention to the style of your city bike, you are well advised to use cork bicycle grips or leather bicycle grips from well-known manufacturers such as Brooks, Creme Cycles or Ritchey. With the noble materials can be set, for example, on simple Caferacern great accents.
Also, if you are looking for the matching splashes of color for his fixie or BMX, will definitely find, because we carry plastic handles in many colors. For mountain bikers especially so-called lock-on grips are an advantage. They offer you a very safe feeling, because the bicycle handle should not only be good in the hand, but also bombproof sitting on the handlebars. Lock-on grips or screw grips are of course a good choice, as they can be easily attached. The grip rubber is pulled here on a plastic shell, which can be tightened by two screws and fixed on the handlebars. Another advantage is the fact that they are logically also much easier to remove or exchange than conventional bicycle grips. In addition, you can, by the simple assembly and fixation, the handles precisely aligned. This is especially necessary with Lock-On Grips with a slightly ergonomic shape, as only then do the grips give you the full grip and supportive effect of ergonomics on your wrists and bones.
With normal bicycle handles, mounting is often the problem. To push the handle completely onto the handlebar, you either need a lot of power or you have to use a liquid to make the handle slip better. This creates the problem that the liquid between the rubber grip and handlebar but must also escape again, so that the handle is firmly seated.
A handle that is especially suitable for racing bikes, gravel bikes and cyclocrossers is the handlebar tape. Since with such bicycles the handlebar is bent as a rule, a normal handle would not mount and also not sufficient to cover the entire gripping surface of the handlebar. So here is the handlebar tape used. The grip is basically available in two different variations. Once it can be glued, including an adhesive strip on the underside of the tape. The handlebar tape must then be wrapped piece by piece around the handlebars and should always overlap a few millimeters. Alternatively, there are also handlebar tape made of silicone, which gets by its material properties without adhesive tape. The big advantage of this is that mistakes during winding have no consequences and you can start again with it. Also, this handlebar tape is easy to clean under the tap and does not lose its properties. It can be re-established over and over again. We offer you the matching bar tape from the leading manufacturers in our online shop.
Lock-On Bicycle Grips - The safest grip in any weather!
The problem of slipping and twisting handles comes to an end with the installation of lock-on handles on the handlebars. Lock-on grips are now available from almost all manufacturers and in different diameters, lengths and colors. The advantage over the standard handles is that the handle body under the handle rubber cover must be bolted firmly to the handlebar tube. The handles usually have a plastic core, through which they are very easy to put on the handlebar ends and to place. This makes it possible to find the perfect grip position by slightly turning the handles. Once the correct handle position has been screwed in, the handles are firmly screwed to the inside of the handle with an aluminum clamp, or with two aluminum snaps on the inner edge and handlebar end.
Depending on the handlebar and handlebar material (aluminum or carbon), the torque specifications of the manufacturer should be observed during assembly. The best way to do this is with a torque wrench. Modern bicycle grips often have a certain ergonomics and shape, which can only develop their potential with precise assembly and alignment of the handle. This is easily possible with lock-on grips. Due to the simple assembly and the resulting perfect alignment, these bicycle grips offer you great advantages.
Ergonomic bicycle grips - the measure against falling hands!
Who does not know, the numb feeling of falling hands? This is usually due to a wrong posture and the choice of unsuitable bicycle handles. Ergonomic handles with a specially developed palm rest promise more comfort for long tours. The rubberized pads in correspondingly shaped bale pads not only increase the grip, but also ensure lasting pain prevention. Various damping zones in the core of the rubber body also absorb the shock from the handlebars and protect the wrist. The ergo handles are bolted to the handlebar tube with an aluminum clamp as with the lock-on handles. This guarantees a tight fit and excellent steering precision.
