I had a pair of these on my old bike and really liked them, so I ordered a pair for my girlfriend's bike. Nice and soft, but they do actually wear out pretty fast. Nothing crazy, like with in a few rides, can probably get 20-30 rides, if not a bit more out of them. But they're pretty cheap, so not a big deal in my mind.

I didn't like these grips at all, they are just to thin for me. I felt tons of vibration through them. I took them off after one week and went back to another brand. If you're looking for really thin grips you might like these. They seem to be made really well, they just weren't for me.
I'm glad I have an air compressor. These fit tight & compressor is your best friend otherwise good luck
grips are sleek and comfortable. they grip firmly. not bulky and ugly like pro grips and rizoma grips. i run these on all of my bikes
As of March-1-2013, the grip in the photo still shows the soft as the dark grey. This is incorrect. The softs only come in light grey. The photo looks like a Renthal grip, but the logo in missing. (see attached photo) I have asked costumer support to display the correct photos about a month ago.
Rental makes three compounds available with each compound specific to a color. The colors for each compound and their related Renthel part numbers are as followed.
Part Number - Compound - Color
G147 - Soft - light grey
G148 - Medium - Medium grey
G149 - Firm - Dark grey
The photo I attached is of the medium compound/medium gray that I ordered, but you have to call them up. Due to the mediums not being listed on their website, they had to special order them. I received the grips in about 5 working days, which I was very happy about.
The mediums last me 2 riding seasons. They are thinner and much softer then your standard stock grips, thus providing excellent gripability and feed back. By feed back, I mean any and all vibrations are easily transferred through the grips and into your hands, thus allowing you more sensitivity to tire grip, even little pebbles.
Cons: If you don't have a smooth running machine, you could get a numb hand from the vibrations.
If you don't want to feel the road underneath you, then don't get these, but if you want to know exactly what going on underneath you and use the most successful grip in road racing history..."then add to cart!"
Best grips ever! I put them on all my bikes.
im so happy with the grip of this item its very sticky... thanks for motosport.com more power to your company... im sure im going to order another item soon..... thanks for the free sticker love it
Although the claim is soft grip, they are not and they feel like you are gripping bare-bar. Although they are better than stock, I found these not to be the best grip for vibration and arm-pump reduction.
my old stockers were worn out so decided on these. feel good and look good. i read in another review that the soft grips were grey so i was expecting a darker grey. when i got them they were more a whiter grey. so consider that before buying them. still look good though.
Awesome grips went on the bike easily and felt a lot better than the stockers. Just so you know the soft grips are not black they are grey
now I see why all the euromags and racers rave about these grips. excellent feel and very thin. try these you will love them. the only grips I will every buy!!!!!
Got them very quick. Good service at motosport.com Anyway. The grips are soft and fit on the bike very well, but one thing I did not know that the different types of touche come with different colors. Soft ones come in gray only and not in black. I had to return them because wanted to match the bike. Other then that the quality is great and would keep it if it was not for the color.
I bought these for my husband's bike and when they arrived they were really flimsy and seemed almost of poor quality maybe cheap looking. Also turns out a thicker firmer hand grip is what hubby prefers so really to each his own on comfort. Not bad all in all for the price.
awesome grips for roadracing and adding to clipons nice and thin and give u a great grip
