Grip Buddies

Grip Buddies - STD (4.7mm)



OGB kits: AA
In stock (7 units), ready to be shipped

Most motorcycles stock hand grips are just lousy. Why? Because most grips are thin, rock hard, and transmit vibration to the rider. But the biggest issue can be due to the fact that most stock grips cause riders to "over grip". Over Grip is the sensation where a rider tends to grab the grip harder and harder in order to maintain feel and control...... and this causes fatigue of the hands and forearms.

Enter the Solution......... Neoprene Super Sharkskins!

These are the New SMARTSKIN Grips!

These US made neoprene comfort grips, referred to as Super Sharkskins, are a great option for riders wanting more comfort, less vibration, durability with a super easy install. With the Original Grip Buddies there is no need to remove your OEM grips....... you simply wrap these around them! They attach using the Velcro on the underside, for a easy install and can be easy removed if wanted. Or you can use adhesive to mount them permanently if you wish. And now you're ready to ride in comfort, in just a few minutes.

Available in LITE version at 3.2mm thick or 4.7mm for STANDARD version.

These are the Standard thickness of 4.7mm.

Grips with “All-Weather” qualities. These grips do not absorb water!

A heightened sense of “Control” over your motorcycle due to the satisfied feeling that your hands have finally been properly “filled”. . . . . . just the right amount (enough, but not too much)!

* Grips that are “Heated-Grip-Compatible”. You really feel the heat with these babies!

*A durable, long-lasting solution that “Won’t Migrate" like some other available grip options

Ok... so what if you don't see your bike or ATV listed here but you want to size it out??? Easy........

Take the letters of the Kit      ie. CC, AB, BE

The first letter is the circumference (all the way around) of the grip. The second letter is the length of the grip:

·       A = 4.00" (102mm)

·       B = 4.25" (108mm)

·       C = 4.50" (114mm)

·       D = 4.75" (121mm)

·       E = 5.50" (140mm)


For example:

BE = 4.25" circumference x 5.50" length
AC = 4.00" circumference x 4.50" length

Very good product

Had foam grips on bike previous to installing these, not as thick as foam but water proof. I also feel they transmit the heat better from the heated grips. Would buy again.

Solved my Skinny Grip Problem

Why to import bikes insist on using grips so skinny that your hands cramp holding on to them for more than 5 minutes? Im not a fan of Grip Puppies as they become a sponge in the rain but Shark Skins don't soad up the rain, do the job, easy to install and cost very little.

A good quality & useful product

Purchased it after watching a few YT videos, which recommended this product over the others. And I am fully satisfied with my choice/purchase. They are easy to install, provide a good cushion and are totally "non-slip". I'm posting this review after a month of use ~ and I have no complaints, rather I'm quite happy. I fully recommend these Grip Buddies for our motorcycles. Mine's: Honda CBR300RA. These fit like a glove. I've clicked a few pictures ~ but alas, this review system doesn't permit posting them.

When my new Grip Buddies arrived I was a bit dubious, as they seemed too thin to add enough size to my grips. I was wrong... they're ideal. I had been suffering from hand cramping after about an hour and a half into rides, to the point where my fingers would cross as if I was wishing for something. It was really interfering with my riding. I was clenching onto my stock, spindly BMW grips for all I was worth. But with the Grip Buddies installed, my grips are now an ideal size and there is more friction from the neoprene than with the stock grips alone. This has resulted in my being able to loosen my grip considerably and also rotate my hands back on the grips, which in turn has lessened the amount of forearm muscles needed to grip the bars. And with being able to rotate my hands a bit back on the bars, I am sitting up more vertically with less load on my shoulders and lower back. Altogether a more comfortable proposition. These are well worth buying.
