Dirt bike grips are one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to personalize your ride. While sometimes chosen for color and style, these purpose-built products have more to do with rider control than anything else. With different compounds and patterns, dirt bike grips are designed to be tailored to a certain preference. Holding on to the handlebar comfortably is crucial when putting down fast lap times. Top-level riders have been known to have grips designed specially to their requirements. For instance, Ken Roczen uses a thicker grip for his left hand to account for his devastating arm injury sustained in the 2017 Supercross season. Innovative features such as the “Lock-On” system, designed for quick and effortless installation, have become more popular in recent years over the traditional glued method. Grip patterns, thickness, colors, and durometer (or hardness) vary wildly in grip designs, making for a multitude of choices.
