REALLY?! How do $90 bicycle grips stack up against $5 grips?

Hold on tight! Today we're going to test some mountain bike grips. Note that this video is just for entertainment. We spent about an hour with all these grips and can't give you any information on how they work long term. Still, it was interesting to test grips back to back with such a massive price disparity.
The Rev grips were backordered, so by the time they arrived the other grips had changed prices. I'm including links to them below anyhow.
The cheapest grips are here
The Ztto lock ons are here Note that only the colorless ones were $4.86 and those don't seem to be available anymore
And finally the Rev Grips

  • You too can pay $90 for an awful product. Expect them to be $10 at a clearance sale near you.

  • Those $89 grips are such a waste of money and look like they are one hell of a safety hazard! Grips are meant to be gripped! Oh yeah, if all you have is cheap rubber grips... use hairspray when when you put them on easier and when it dries they won’t be going anywhere. But if you’re got $5 I’d say get the Zittos.

  • Cheap grips like that also want to prevent them to go off, which can happen. Spray a wee bit of clear varnish in them and a wee bit on the bars. Easy to push them on and they wont come off. Still can take them off by prying a screwdriver between them and then pry the comoressors nozle in it and blast off when twisting Btw the old fashioned way of doing that was using hairspray. Thats just as good 😃

  • Technology and innovation are great but there is also a lot to be said for keeping things simple. The more complicated you make something the more there is to go wrong. For me a decent pair of lock on type grips with integral bar end caps are a big improvement over slip on grips while still being simple enough. $89 grips with multiple small parts look like a headache to install and seem way over complicated for what they need to do.

  • Btw: if you have slip-on grips with no locking mechanism use hairspray on the handlebars, where the grips are supposed to go. Makes them stick like glue and prevents them from slipping around in wet conditions or when too much force is applied...

  • Another easy way to get your grips on are to use hairspray, it makes the grip slippery when it’s first applied but after time it dries which makes the inside of the grip sticky
