Pro Grip 842 Gel Duo Density Cruiser Grip
Eases hand buzz a bit. Not a cure-all but better.
Got this dual density hand grip to reduce a buzzy hand. I have a VFR800 with bar ends, so had to trim the ends off these grips to fit. Installation was easy with dishwashing soap solution as lubricant. Have to leave overnight to dry or else still moves if you try to use right away. Good point with that is that you can make adjustment before leaving it overnight to dry. Performance wise, the grip is has a nice feel to it and the buzzy feeling I get in my hand is reduced. It has not completely gone away, but is noticeably improved that i consider this change a success.

Overall, better than what I expected especially being installed on a sportsbike.
Thus far after some long rides, "dead hand" has been eliminated.

Comfortable & Vibration Absorption
Very comfortable grips and they do help with vibration absorption. Soft and grippy with bare hands or gloves. I hope they keep their "gel" feel on the outside for a long time, but only time will tell. If you want comfortable grips that help with vibration absorption, I would definitely recommend these.

Gel Grips gggggrippy!
Put these over existing scooter grips by cutting ends off to allow bar ends to fit. Feel and look nice. Obviously larger diameter with both grips but feels beefier while softer. Very nice... It minimized dead hand.
Hope they hold up. I think they will....

These are a great value, but not the best grips out there. I wanted some low-buck heated grips for my Harley, so I purchased these Pro Grips and the Symtec foil heating element kit. This combination works great, and is budget-friendly. The rubber is very grippy, but I don't expect to get more than one or two seasons out of them.

Looks good and feels good
I did not review its durability as I have only used it a few times. But my initial opinion is that it feels more comfortable than other grips I've used. Having spent over 50 years of my life riding motorcycles I am always looking for something to make the experience more enjoyable. these grips certainly appear to be able to do that. Soft yet small and comfy in the hands. If they last then that will be to their advantage - a great new product with the potential to revolutionize the standard of excellence.
