Lizardskins DSP Lever Grips - Oct. 28, 2022, 8:55 a.m.

I also use a similar grip tape setup on the brake levers for my hardtail, which i ride a lot more in the winter. i bought a roll of 1" self adhered grit tape. it's grittier than skateboard tape.  i've had the same piece on for a few winters now and it certainly helps with braking grip with saturated gloves, and gives a bit of insulation from the lever. I'd be interested to try these skins out.

Have you looked into Box Components Box One Prime ($$$) or Box Two Prime ( $) 9 speed 11-50 groupsets? I got the Box 4 8 speed for my 10 year old daughter, and while being 'entry level' shifted nicely.

i meant the 'needing' the 50/51/52t.

i ride in areas where i'm not in my 46t on the 11 speed hardtail. but on the heavy ass enduro bike and the bigger climbs i was always in the GX 50t, but not always in the XT 51.

i've recently switched from GX to 12 speed XT. I had 11 speed XT, but went with aftermarket cassettes ( sunrace ) to get rid of the massive step in the bail out gear. Same with GX to XT, i'm in the 2nd or 3rd rear cog quite often, where i would be up in the 50t on the sram. 

top 3, shimano 10-51: 39, 45, 51

top 3 sram 10-50/52: 36,42,50/52

It's not so much of the 52t top end, i'd use it, it's the screwed up gearing range. Maybe it's just  BC thing, steep logging road climbs, steep single track climbs to enduro stuff ...

i wrap my spare tube around the Perdos one and strap it to my frame. they are big levers, but i only need the 1.
