Hows the control?
in motocross....easy track or difficult.....even though they look extrememly comfortable...but are you able to keep a good, strong, firm grip on the grips when hitting jumps and hard bumpy areas

Yes, You will be able to they are a very good grip to have they are probably one of the best grips that I personally have and use when racing motocross. I recommend them and give them a try.

like the other 2 answers, yes they are a great grip. If you don't have the biggest hands, go with the Pillow Top Lites that are a little narrower.

i find on big jumps wen overshooting they do help soften the bottoming out of your suspension.. i also found they have little less vibration from stock.. but i did get the same calisis/blisters as stock grips..

I find better control due to the ability to apply hand/finger pressure where it is needed on the grip as opposed to squeezing the harder OEM grip. Think of grips as part of the suspension system. We often soften the suspension in rough areas to help absorb the shock, same thing applies here. The less hand-fatigue the better the hand control as the moto wears on.

I practice off season on MX tracks... and find you can't just slip your hand loosely to a new grip.. they are very sticky and will hang on to a glove. That being said I have no issues with my hands coming loose or moving unless i actively let go.
So if you are used to letting loose your grip to reposition by sliding your hand then you may find these difficult to work with... again it depends on how you ride and change hand postions
