Strength:

Slim, doesn't say "ODI" in big white letters on the end.

Weakness:

Cheap plastic bar end plugs & lack of robustness in design, material, or both. After three weeks of use they looked like they had been used hard for six months. The plugs wouldn't stay in and the grips were tearing close to the bar ends. To be fair, in those three weeks I had a couple high-speed crashes at the bike park ... that said, my last set of ODI's held up to the same treatment for over a year before needing to be replaced.

The fact that these have a locking collar only on the inboard side makes them look slicker than the ODI grips, but they just don't hold up to lay-downs like the ODI. If you hardly every crash they may work fine for you.

Strength:

no outer lock-on collar means no stress to your palms. there is tiny larger diameter rubber ring on the outside. they perform better then my odi intense lock-on grips, they are bit slimmer and have sure feel. great comfort when used with full-finger gloves. they are lighter (92g, weighted).

Weakness:

no as tough as odi intense grips, inner plastic is softer. basic ugly bar plugs. bit pricey (in europe).

if you prefer firm control of your grips, go get these. irregular grooves resemble nature patterns, which is nice.
