I have these on some riser bars on my mountain bike. I know someone who put them on their funky figure 8 (don’t know what they are really called) looking bars on her touring bike and she loves them too. I was getting numb fingers on rides and these cured the issue although I think I still lean too heavily and grip too tightly on the bars during rides. They have softened up a bit since I bought them and seem to separate just a bit between the metal locking edge and the rubber where your palm rests. No tearing has occurred yet but I could see this as a weak point in the future. Very comfy and have held up for 18 months so far.

I have been using these on my commuter bike for about a year. they’re very comfortable on long rides. The only complaint I have is, once I wore through the gray patch, it became a sticky mess. That portion of the grip can’t handle the Arizona heat! I flipped the grips over and should get another year out of them. If I buy a second pair, I’ll put them on upside down first. Once I’ve worn that side out, the top side will be like a new pair of grips

I just bought a pair and hope these help.

I have both my 29ers fitted out with these, and they have really reduced the numbness and fatigue in my hands; the hands rest more naturally as you ride, and I find they force me to grip less tightly. I have found them superior to bar ends, which act as hooks for trees. Mine are worn, but I never thought about severe desert heat.

I have a pair of these on my beater bike. It has a “funky figure 8” type bar that Joe Dirt alluded to above (trekking/touring bar).

It is well shaped and designed. I have problems with numb hands, and these do help. They are the most comfortable grips I’ve ever used.

I’m not crazy about the clamp design. And the new ones have a little lip on the inside of the grip, that won’t let you clamp down anywhere but the end of a bar. Trekking bars are reversed, the end of the bar is towards the stem. Also, if you want to use a bar end with these, they won’t work by default.

You can solve this with a rasp or a pocket knife (that’s what I did). But I really feel like you shouldn’t have to. That said, I will put a pair of Ergons on every non-drop bar bike I own.
