I have found that I need larger diameter grips for comfort. Skinny grips cause me pain in the palm. I used wires and various push on grips in the old days but I would stretch the grips to the point that water could get in and cause them to slip every two or three months. We had a BC Cup XC race up on Grouse in the 90’s and it was cold and really wet. The Velcro straps on shoes quit after several runs through a particular mud pit and some lost their shoes. Grouse made us download the bikes in the old gondola and I helped unload at the bottom. I’d say nearly every bike had one loose grip and some were missing one. Both my own wired on grips had come loose. I’ll never go back to push on grips. Never. Nor will I buy into the small diameter grips are better bs either.
