While it may seem like all hand grips are round, and perhaps the majority are indeed round, the fact is not all round grips are alike. The obvious difference, as shown in images below, is the look of a hand grip, but the finish - textured, shiny or ribbed - all tell a different story and serve different purposes. Touch and feel are of utmost importance in a hand grip. Before ordering, samples are free and you can test for feel, comfort, strength and fit. Many sizes and styles are sold in our ecommerce store.
By definition, these hand grips are uniquely molded or designed with marked lines. The images present a clear concept and several are easily recognized as commonly used on bicycles. Other popular uses for these specially designed hand grips are outdoor power equipment and garden tools. Some styles yield greater comfort, but still match durability of the others. Many of these are stocked and for sale in our e-commerce store. Samples are free so you can test for fit and feel.
Foam Grips, Tubes & Wrap
Foam grips are made from rubber materials and foam or rubber hand grips provide a cushion-like comfort to the hand as it wraps around the grip. As shown in the image of our smooth foam tubes, there is a smooth finish to foam tubes and grips, but additional process can produce different effects. A simple, straight tube or hand grip can be processed through a secondary step that rounds off the ends, referred to as radiused ends. Additionally, other processes strip or buff off the outer skin leaving a sponge-like appearance. Many of our foam hand grips are sold in our commerce store in this form.
