What to look for in your bicycle grips?  First consider the type of cycling you will be doing- downhill, cross country, BMX, commuting, etc..  A more aggressive of deep grip pattern will provide better grip, especially when wearing gloves.  Grips also may come in thin or thick, small or large to accommodate hand sizes.  For cross country mountain biking or commuting you may prefer a grip with a palm platform which helps reduce wrist fatigue.  Some grips come with integrated bar ends which give you an additional hand position and more leverage for climbing. Grips with rings are easier to install and remove and keep your grips from rotating on the handlebar.  Finally grips come in a variety of colors to match your bike or kit.
