ODI Grips

ODI Brand Ambassador Carey Hart

Riverside, California based ODI Grips has continued to take inspiration for its V-twin products from the motocross market, and with design input from brand ambassador Carey Hart has unveiled a new V-twin-specific Lock-On grip set.
"When I ride any motorcycle, the feel at the handlebars is crucial to me," says Hart. "Having a background in motocross, I have become accustomed to a grip set-up that is very specific. With the growth in performance V-twin, it only made sense to leverage my background in motocross to develop our new V-twin product." 

ODI says that this Moto-inspired Full Waffle design was developed to provide improved comfort by reducing vibration while also offering a grip with exceptional traction and control in severe riding conditions. The ODI genuine Lock-On technology was used to provide the most secure mounting system while also allowing easy installation and removal.
"Each set is manufactured with a model-specific in-molded throttle tube. The proven billet aluminum clamp system is made available in anodized colors to match the components on your custom build."

The Moto-inspired grip system uses proprietary medium-compound materials to "provide excellent durability and comfort. The Full Waffle Moto pattern reduces vibration and provides improved grip in all conditions and the heavily knurled base pattern delivers solid traction and control."
The billet aluminum clutch-side clamp is said to ensure 100% slip-free security (the need for set screws is eliminated) and T15 Torx bolts ensure extra secure clamping "for solid, twist-free mounting."
Available grip/clamp colorways include black/black, black/gunmetal or black/bronze. Available fitments include 1984+ H-D cable-actuated models, 2008+ H-D Throttle-by-Wire and 2018+ Indian Throttle-by-Wire models.
The grips are distributed by Drag Specialties and HardDrive in the USA, and by Zodiac and Parts Europe in Europe.
