WHICH IS SO AWESOME.

FWIW, I think the ESIs are the only ones that have really nailed the silicone compound right. I do run gloves, and can see why grip in the wet might be an issue without... but with gloves, I haven't had any issues. 

At least not.... issues that were just my own fault. Look, its not my grips that make me slow. Or fall over.

I'm a huge fan of the ESIs - and don't mind them in the wet/slop. Maybe depends on your glove of choice (or lack thereof?)

The PRO silicone compound is all wrong, though. 

I think with all the silicone grips, if you try 'em, they're love or hate. I'm clearly the former.

They're like hips, but lower down.

Well said, Cam.

Boy. We're gonna need a lot of rocks and tape to bring that up to fighting weight.

Totally agree.

Allowed?!

They're ENCOURAGED. 

But, keep in mind, they're subject to the same weight restrictions as squishy bikes.

Its all about the "spirit" of the rules here, especially for #4. 

Show up with anything brand new and shiny*...... that's gonna be a penalty. Something like a Hellbent saddle is probably going to escape the judges ire. 

*The exception is handlebars. You're allowed to swap bars, for safety, to a new bar. However, it must be reduced in width to 26" or less.

Think of it as LeMons rules, Perry. 

All rules are hard and fast rules; all competitors and judges can be bribed with libations appropriate to the severity of the infraction.

The M1 rule was actually crafted in the spirit of the E30 rule - an automatic 50 lap penalty.
