I agree, they aren't the greatest for spirited riding but I get by considering most of my miles are commuting and occasional canyons.
Any good recs for a full rubber grip that is a little fatter than average? Once I find some in black I will get two sets so I can mix-match to correspond to my jacked up paws. I can't grasp the regular sized grips very well with my right hand. I don't gorilla grip my bars but I had my hand repaired after a mx crash as a kid and it's never been the same (nerve damage and shortened lig)
