Our Suspension Grips outperform any other grip because they DO NOT make contact with your Handlebar. The Inner Diameter of the Grip is approximately 1/8 of an inch larger than the Outside Diameter of the handlebar and is "suspended" in an elastomer on each side of the grip. This unique design allows the Grip to work WITH your hands, isolated from shock and vibration, and independent of your handlebar. Tuning washers are placed between the Grip Sleeve and Clamp to customize feel and performance so you can allow your grip to "move" as little or as much as desired (just like a fork or shock).
Pictured below are the Assembly Instructions. (CLICK TO DOWNLOAD PDF) Grip Sleeve (A) Free Floats within the Suspension Insert Ring (C) that is housed inside the Lock-On Clamp (E). The Grip's torsional (twist) and axial (up-down) movement is limited and controlled by the Suspension Insert Ring (C). The grip feel and shock absorbing characteristics are adjusted with the tuning washers (B).
The only part of the RevGrips System making contact with your handlebar is the clamp itself, which houses the Suspension Insert Ring that isolates your grip/hand and allows controlled and adjustable shock absorption. See FAQ's for more information.
