Selecting the best motorcycle grips hasn’t always been a decision based on comfort —durability and practicality also play a role. But, of course, it never hurts when a pair of grips makes a killer addition to a bike (like the ones you see over there, to the right of this paragraph).
Before we tell you about the latest Performance Machine grips, it’s important to know that when shopping for grips, you have to keep in mind what kind of riding you’ll be doing most of the time. For those of you who often hit the highways or prefer long-range trips, a grip that allows air to slip in between the fingers might be the way to go, because air circulation goes a long way toward preventing numb hands from long hours on the road.
By the same token, a softer, spongier grip with rough ridges or holes might be preferred by the off-road riders, who need to keep a firm grip on their bikes when their hands are wet or sweaty. And cushioned grips are great for bikes that vibrate heavily, such as the heavier twin-cylinder Harley-Davidsons.
Our rubber-wrapped grips have always been popular and now we’re introducing a new style of Elite rubber-wrapped handlebar grips to the market. Durable, knurled rubber with an embossed PM logo wraps around a machined billet grip for optimal comfort and style. And they’re available in chrome and black — all with our logo engraved on a sleek tip for just $99.95 a set.
