Designed and tested by us, the Palmdale Grips are the new home for your hands on Santa Cruz Bicycles.
Single lock-ring design with the staying power of dual lock-ring. A taper-lock core uses an internal sleeve that narrows towards the last 38mm (1.5”) of the grip, effectively clamping onto the end of the bar to eliminate twisting. Flared closed end for comfort, feel and security. 8mm (0.3”) of rubber with a subtle mushroom profile on the tip resists scuffing, provides comfort and adds an intuitive feel for the bar end. (We also found it adds a healthy dose of forgiveness when clipping trees on tight trails!)
Long grip length and waffle knurl for maximum control. A generous 125mm (4.9”) grip length (excluding lock-ring) allows plenty of room to reposition hands on differing terrain and long rides. The moto-knurl pattern gives just the right balance of feel and grip in all conditions.
