We just got samples of the new Volume Bikes grips that we’ve had in the works. We are so stoked on how these came out with the chevron design. We wanted something similar to the classic mushroom design that has been such a comfortable staple in BMX for so long, similar to our sister brand Demolition Parts Missile grips. But, we also wanted a design that would give some lateral resistance to prevent throttle grip that is common with the one directional vertical ribs of mushroom grips. That, combined with modern rubber compounds and technology available today that maximize longevity and right-out-of-the box cushy feel and grip, this is the end result and we are stoked! A couple of other small features you might notice is the slight knurling on the high flange and the low flanges to add a little extra grip. The VLM grip is being run by our Volume Bikes Team as they film for the upcoming #watchthefinerthings full length video, and they’ll be out in about 3 months in both flanged and flange-less options.
