As simple an item as bike grips are, they are one that many riders tend to overlook. This is not recommended as they serve important functions for cyclists.
Bike grips provide a non-slip surface for your handlebars, increasing your level of control and thus impacting your overall safety, making riding on any terrain that much more comfortable. That means you’ll not only want to spend more time riding; you’ll be able to as well. You won’t have any aches or pains to worry about.
Bike grips also protect the ends of your bike’s bars. Listen up, mountain bikers! Good bar ends let you shift your weight forward on your bike, lowering the centre of gravity and keeping your front tire firmly on the ground where it should be.
We’ve got a great selection of different grips available at Bike Addict, from top manufacturers like Lizzard Bikes, Ryder Bikes, and Race Face.
Then there’s handlebar tape, another often forgotten facet of a good bike ride. It serves as the most important contact point on your machine and will not only vastly improve your grip but send your comfort-levels skyrocketing as well.
Bike Addict has a great range of tapes for you to choose from and we’ve made sure there’s enough scope for personalisation! Check out products from Titan Racing Bikes, RideFarr, and Supacaz. Not only will quality bar tape improve your ride at high speeds and help you navigate tricky corners, but it will also refresh how your machine looks.
Cycling is about having a good time and nothing ruins this more quickly than hurting your hands on the hard, unforgiving metal of your handlebars. Reach out to us if you need any more information, browse what’s on offer, and remember, we offer free delivery for orders over R1 000.*
