GripRings are made from non-toxic silicone rubber, the same stuff used for you favorite kitchen spatula.
How many rings should I use?
Here’s a rough guide:
– 5 Rings (90mm): Twist shifter grip
– 6 Rings (105mm): Short grip
– 7 Rings (120mm): Standard grip
– 8 Rings (135mm): Wide grip
Will GripRings work with any handlebars?
Yes, nearly all. Most bars are between 22-24mm diameter. The elastic GripRings will easily stretch over straight bars, riser bars, mustache bars, etc. GripRings work best when they have a smooth surface to grab, so heavily textured (i.e. powder coated) bar surfaces can be wrapped with glossy tape for improved ring security.
Can I use GripRings on my road bicycle drop bars?
We recommend installing GripRings only on the straight top portion or the flat drops. Technically it is possible to line the entire handlebar with rings, but we don’t recommend it. GripRings nest, so work well on bars with gradual bends; drop bar bends are too sharp.
