These grips are great. They are very comfortable, palms won't get tired when riding on tough terrain. They definitely worth the price.

I use these grips on two MTB bikes and love their tacky feeling and comfortable thickness. With right technique it is easy to install them onto the handlebars.

Their weakest part is the end plugs. These plastic things are absolutely horrendous. They cannot survive a single tree hit and usually just flow out at the first opportunity.

The foam grips themselves are quite fragile and thus they need protection that an end plug provides. When I install a new pair of ESI grips, I just immediately throw the end plugs to trash and replace them with aluminum plugs that can hold their own.

Using them on my xc carbon hardtail. Great grips, super comfy, even after hours of riding; easy to install (just put some liquid soap on the inside of the grip and on the handlebar and slide them on). Would definitely recommend them!
Only cons are: they get super slippery with sweaty hands and one of my bar plug came loose after months of riding (never crashed on that side) and I ended up loosing it somewhere on the Alps.
I do always wash them with just water after every ride but after months of use on the trails and without gloves, color changed a bit and got darker. No big deal to me anyway.

Great grips! I use them for a long time and recommend it to everyone. The only thing - it`s hard to wear them on the bar. Use the alcohol for this purpose.

I like these grips, very nice grip with gloves and without, even in the wet.
Quite strong but signs of damage are already showing after a few rough rides.
