Riding a bike through Hell's Gate National Park in Kenya is a truly wild experience. It's common to spot baboons, warthogs, giraffes and zebras in their natural habitat. I'll never forget seeing a giraffe run. It's a bizarre and beautiful thing that somehow happens in slow motion. 

After a nice little mosey through the park, we dropped into a bone-rattling descent high above Lake Naivasha. It was white-knuckle action all the way down and I was holding on for dear life. It's the kind of trail our Hell's Gate Grips are made for, hold on tight and try to enjoy!

Hells Gate Grips

Wasnt sure about these but gave them a try and I am a convert. Was using some ergon GE1 grips and had wanted something a little thicker (used to use GA2). I dont have super big hands but I've found I just prefer it. Anyway, hells gate were perfect girth. AND, I really like the 4 pads on the grip, it feels like it helps with dampening and especially comfort. I thought it was just a gimmick but I find it super functional. Honestly my favorite grips I've tried yet, which was a surprise coming from a new company. Way more comfortable than my ergons, dare I say it, ha

Great grips

I appreciate that these grips are a good in between, not too thin and not too thick and mushy. They are just thick enough to absorb vibration but not so squishy that you loose the feel and control, the lock on works good with no wiggle or slack, perfect fit. I got the orange model because it matches my Fox fork decals, they look great!

Replaced my stock Intense grips with The ****'s Gate Grips and couldn't be happier. They're a tad bit thicker and have a better grip pattern than my stock grips. They make me want to ditch my gloves to feel the perfection!
