The handlebar grip is your key contact point for controlling your bike. Having a grip suited to your individual demands is hugely important. For this reason we offer a wide range of Lock-On Traction grip compounds to suit every rider’s preference.
Renthal Lock-On grips feature CNC aluminium locking collars, permanently integrated with the central core, giving the ultimate all-weather security on the handlebar. The permanently integrated construction eliminates any movement between the grip section and the collars, which could otherwise develop over time.
Forward Facing Ramped Finger Ridges; When pulling back on the handlebars, the majority of the grip and torque is concentrated through the fingers. Forward facing, ramped ridges in the finger area give increased grip when pulling back, yet lay flat in normal riding conditions, for improved comfort. The consistent pattern across the width of the grip ensures the additional traction is just as effective, riding with your hand in any position.
Rearward Facing Angled Palm Grooves; When braking or steep descending, the majority of the torque and grip is concentrated through the palm. Grooves cut with a rearward facing angle give improved grip in this situation. As the ramped groove is cut into the grip, it gives a comfortable, large surface area for the palm in normal riding conditions. The consistent pattern across the width of the grip ensures the additional traction is just as effective, riding with your hand in any position.
For comfort, the grip material under the palm area has been increased to give improved cushioning. Thinner grip material is used under the finger area to keep the overall outside diameter the same. Riding in extreme conditions, crashes are inevitable, which can result in the grip getting packed with mud. We designed the grips to have open-ended grip features, allowing mud to be purged off the end of the grip.
Renthal's unique, Ultratacky compound constantly produces and renews a sticky surface coating. The resulting adhesive grip surface massively increases control and reduces fatigue. If the grip loses its adhesive qualities, simply wash with clean water and allow the grips to air dry to re-activate.
This is our most advanced compound to date. Millions of randomly aligned Kevlar® brand resin particles are suspended in the base material. As the grip is used, more of these particles are exposed, resisting wear whilst retaining a tacky feel.
