It almost goes without saying that in the world of motorcycling, style and comfort do not share the same address. As a result, some of the parts on your bike (i.e., those that you have the most contact with: the grips) fall prey to style vs. comfort decisions. Sometime later, those grips you picked out — you know, the ones that looked so bad-ass on ol’ what’s his name’s bike in the parking lot of your local watering hole —have you second guessing your decision, especially after a few miles down the road when the numbness in your hand sets in or a blister pops up. Never fear because there is a perfect solution.

Avon Grips are available for the metric cruiser as well.
Avon’s Custom Contour line of performance grips showcases the company’s ergonomically designed grips with billet ends, which are available in a spiked tip or contoured finish.Made from Avon’s proprietary rubber, they work as well as they look.
The Air-Cushioned series takes comfort to a whole other level with . You’ll have a hard time finding a grip easier on your digits than these bad boys.
Do your paws a favor and wrap them around a set of these grips from Avon. Trust me, you’ll thank me later with a firm handshake.
