Strength:

Light-weight, excellent friction with a variety of leather and leather-ish riding gloves, easy to mount, once locked on - they stay locked on, good for (my) smaller hands. Most important is the feel.

Weakness:

Wear may be a problem for those looking for an indestructable rubber grip

I primarily ride (Vancouver Island, BC, CAN) technical single-track on my full suspension bikes and road, trails on my hardtails I have used a variety of lock-on grips on my past 7 bikes and these are the best blend of weight, durablity and feel. By feel I mean I don't really think about how I am holding onto the bars with these grips. The low knurling pattern provides plenty of grip but not in an obsessive glued-on way. The grips flex slighly when you roll your wrists - almost lile an extension of your own arms. It is a reassuring dynamic attachment to the bike.
They are simple - a hard plastic tube with a roughtly 1/8" rubber cover and a metal-ish lock-on right with a small torx screw. I never adjust mine - they stay put. I get about 150-300 hours out of a set. They age gracefully, as the rubber becomes thinner and eventually tears away. Never had a sudden peel-away problem.
These a good for XC or short-fingered AM riders looking for a subtle but effective lock on

Strength:

Finesse, level of control, slim feel, feedback, well made.

Weakness:

None apparent yet.

These grips are, in my opinion, ideally suited to fast XC use and especially racing. Their slim profile and uniform, sticky grip give excellent control and feedback. Having only one lock-on means that they are ideally suited for use with bar-ends and I haven't experienced any twisting/slipping problems yet. Highly recommended.....
