The Pro Taper soft grips are just perfect. These are slim grips, grippy, as you’ll need on wet or muddy days, but the comfort is surprisingly high. So far they’ve lasted well, but at only just over £8 a time they’re cheap enough to not worry about frequent replacement if necessary. We stuck them on with Pro Taper’s own grip glue and this was a wise choice. The glue gives ample time to locate the grips in position, but since the glue has set they’ve not budged so much as a millimetre, despite repeated soakings. We were going to safety lock-wire the grips, but never got around to it, the glue has been more than good enough.
