ODI AG-2 LOCK-ON GRIPS

Designed for the best, seriously

 

Aaron Gwin has been working hard with his sponsors to create products to help him win races, and the new AG-2 grips are part of the package. ODI worked with Gwin to design the AG-2 with a larger diameter than the previous version at 30.5 millime- ters. The AG-2 uses a softer compound and offset padding for additional comfort on downhill racecourses. ODI made these grips 135 millimeters in length, and they use a single lock-on. Retail price is $35, and they are available in six colors. odigrips.com
