I am looking for some big meaty grips for my mitts, so I don't feel like I am choking a toothpick. I have used Oury's before, what is out there other than that? The meatier the better!

I used to think I liked the big grips better but realized the increased diameter causes arm pump a lot sooner. They are just hard to hang on to. Used Progrip gels on all of my bikes. Can't remember the exact model and I'm not sure if they were even made for dirt bikes but they are super cushy and big.

My grips are worn and skinny, just not liking that all my fingers can easily touch my palm with a lot of play in between. I need new ones and will check them out. Some wear out faster than others and some are softer or harder grips. Thanks.

Rental is my favourite by far but I haven't tried protaper pillowtops on any of my bikes

I do like the Pillow tops look beefy.

 

What Renthal's do you suggest JMO?

Both look good, are they durable and last a long time?

spider M1 grips. I prefer them to the protaper pillow top. Standard diameter in my opinion, not larger than what I would consider "stock". Good feel, and I find myself with a relaxed grip and no arm pump.

I have the half waffle single compound at the moment and there still going strong but as slr said the kavler will last longer and just as good if not better

Progrip makes some nice cushy grips. They ain't stylish but they're nice and thick.
