Our new Backcountry Grips have just arrived and gone into stock. Here's the scoop on these new products.
Backcountry Grips are available in two styles: Standard or Lock-On. Both share the same custom ADV BY BIKE text block grip texture. The sizing of that block texture was specifically sized to work well with or without gloves. The block height and gaps offer exceptional comfort, while also offering channels for moisture to escape, thereby ensuring a secure grip.
Backcountry Lock-On Grip in Blue...
The Lock-On version uses a single density rubber grip over a hardened interior plastic sleeve. A single, anodized aluminum locking collar secures the grip to the bar. The locking collar can be positioned to the inside or outside of the handlebar. The Lock-On version also tapers upward in size toward the collar. When positioned to the outside of the handlebar this helps to prevent hands from slipping off the grip/handlebar. A plastic handlebar plug is included. The Lock-On Backcountry Grip is 134mm long.
Backcountry Grip in Red...
The Standard version is a single density rubber grip with an included, plastic handlebar plug. This grip is slightly longer at 143mm. We feel this extra length allows riders to adjust their hand position slightly to suit their riding style or to provide some slight differentiation in body position during long rides.
Lock-On Backcountry Grips are available in five colors: Black, Red, Gray, White, and Blue (all with Black anodized locking collar).
Standard Backcountry Grips are available in three colors: Black, Red, and Gray.

I come from the land of trees, lakes and cheese. I like beef jerky, singletrack and pale ale. I believe derailleurs were invented for a very good reason. Long rides with good friends and campfires is really what its all about. Oh, and if its not anodized, its worthless.
