That’s the Sensus Swayze. Fantastic grip - I’ve run them for years as a lock-on and started running then glue-and-wire after making that switch. I like to have one bike with Renthals and one with Swayzes as I find when I’m riding a lot my hands feel better over successive days if I change it up. They are very different from the Renthal. They don’t have the same grip from friction (material) but they have excellent grip from design (waffle). They feel much bigger at first squeeze but on the trail the width feels similar but with more give. There’s an ODI-made Eclat grip that I really like that’s similar. I still think the Renthal Ultra Tacky is the best - thin - grip option in the market for wet conditions (and I use them year round) but the Swayze is differently awesome (and for those that like the lock-on, the push-on is so much better - just like the Renthals). Highly recommended as a push-on option.
