Avon Grips

Avon Kraton Rubber Grips and Pegs 

Best known for the advanced design ergonomic grips, Texas based Avon Grips continues to grow its V-twin market product range, additionally offering billet custom end caps for its grips, head bolts and valve caps, axle nuts, ICruz throttle assists and the selection of footpegs, highway pegs and shifter/brake pads seen here.

Designed to complement its grips, the Avon 'secret sauce' is the durable, soft, yet grippy Kraton synthetic rubber compound it uses.

Based on research that has its origins with the U.S. Defence Department's WWII search for advanced new materials, Kraton is the trade name given to a number of high-performance elastomers manufactured by Kraton Polymers and used as synthetic replacements for natural rubber. 

Kraton polymers offer many of the properties of natural rubber, such as flexibility, high traction and sealing abilities, but with increased resistance to heat, weathering and chemicals - all of which are important considerations in the motorcycle accessory landscape.

All of Avon's pegs are made with the same attention to detail that goes into its grips with precision CNC 6016 T6 heat-treated billet aluminum bodies supporting the vibration dampening Kraton rubber outer sleeve.

Talking of grips, a recent addition to the Avon range is a selection of Diamond Contour grips with a choice of domed or spiked end caps in chrome or black.
