Imprint Bicycle Grips

This is an interesting project I have come across on Kickstarter. If you are unaware of what Kickstarter is, it’s simply a way of funding creative projects. This particular project is called Imprint Bicycle Grips. This is a handlebar grip that you can shape to your hand in seconds, as many times as you like.

In theory there are many advantages to having a grip that fits your hand; comfort, reduced fatigue, grip but for me I would be interested to see what influence these had on feedback from the bike. You will find a lot of Downhill riders who ride without gloves as they feel more “connected” to the bike. The beauty of these grips is that they can be remoulded as many time as you like. This means you could remould for when using gloves or not.

Coming from an engineering background I have a lot of respect for people who have an idea and do something about it. I had already made my pledge to TMR Design to support them in this project. Head over to Kickstarter and take a look for yourself.
