Wolf Tooth Announces Their Fattest Grips Yet, the Mega Fat Paw

Fat grips aren’t for everyone and we all know that grip preferences are like saddles in that they vary widely between riders. While super thick grips don’t benefit everyone, a growing number of people actually benefit from the larger diameter, softer durometer grips being offered by many brands. These grips spread the load on your hands to reduce pressure spots, which is a huge concern to cyclists who have experienced finger numbness due to too much pressure on the ulnar nerve.

Wolf Tooth’s newest grips, the 11.5mm thick Mega Fat Paw and the Mega Fat Paw Cam grips look to offer their fattest diameter year. On top of the other issues they can alleviate, the fat diameter also provides excellent vibration damping. For even more tunable comfort the Fat Paw Cam grips can be rotated to fit your preferred grip patterning. All this with a 40mm diameter.

Wolf Tooth Acquires RedMonkey Sports’ Grip Line and Offers New Grips

I’ve been using the RedMonkey Sports grips for a few years now and their offerings were my favorite in terms of the silicone grip models out there. News dropped this morning that Wolf Tooth has acquired RedMonkey Sports’ grip line and have added their grip models to their own catalog. This is great news for Wolf Tooth dealers, shops, and consumers alike with five models available to fit just about every rider’s needs.

Check out the full Wolf Tooth grip specs below, straight from the Wolf’s mouth.

LEH SEATS recently relocated to Austin, Texas where the normal catalog has been extended from custom saddles and BMX seats to braided bar wrap. It looks damn nice and for a handmade leather product, it won’t break the bank!

I met Kit this weekend in SF for the #RideNStyle fixed gear madness that engulfed the city. He’s from SoCal and came up to promote his new company, Zen Grips and race at the event. Made by ODI, these grips are fabricated in the USA and feature a unique compound and grip pattern. Kit was riding them on his track bike and his FGFS team has been repping them hard for the past few months.
