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 integrated construction eliminates any movement between the grip section and the collars, which could otherwise develop over time.
The handlebar grip is your key contact point for controlling your bike. Having a grip suited to your individual demands is hugely important. The medium compound we use in this grip gives high levels of control, coupled with increased durability.
This Traction grip pattern was designed to give ultimate control in all conditions. The additional mechanical grip of the Traction pattern means that you can retain control, no matter what the weather might throw at you.
Renthal Lock-On Traction Medium : Designed to ride faster, jump further and last longer
Features 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.
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.
Consistent Pattern; The grooves and ridges are consistent across the width of the grip, to accommodate riding with your hand in any position. Be it right in the centre, or with the heal of the hand over the end of the grip, the additional traction is just as effective.
Open-Ended Grip Features; 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.
Offset Grip Material; 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.
Medium Compound; Renthal are the only brand to offer such a wide range of grip compounds. The medium compound we use in this grip gives high levels of control, coupled with increased durability.
