How to pick and install your Race BMX grips
Grips are vital to staying in control of the race BMX bike. A lot of riders prefer soft BMX bike grips. Soft grips add some degree of shock absorption, shielding the rider’s hands from massive hits.
Some race BMX rider’s ride with lock-on BMX handlebar grips to ensure that the grips won’t be able to move.
We carry a wide variety of race BMX grips in various colors, designs, lengths and shapes from brands such as Blunt, Cult, Eclat, Ethic, Fiend, Odi, Premium, Rocker, Root Industries and Wethepeople.
It’s also in this category you’ll find our selection of bar ends in both metal and plastic. Bar ends are used to protect yourself from the sharp ends of the handlebar and keeping your BMX bike grip secure.
Three tips to install your BMX grips
Have you ever been struggling hard while mounting grips? Here come a few tips we use in the workshop that can make mounting grips an easier process.
- Air compressor: If you use an air compressor, you can blow wind into the grips. The grips slide on easily with an air compressor.
- Strips: Place approximately four plastic strips inside the grips. By using strips inside the grips, the surface becomes less grippy, and the grips will go on more easily. Pull out the strips from the grips and you are done.
- Window cleaner and other fast evaporating liquids: Using fast evaporating liquids on the bar makes the bar more slippery, and the grips can be installed without too much effort.
