Fabric FunGuy Grip Review

The Fabric FunGuy MTB Grips are made from a soft rubber compound that not only feels really nice to hold and touch but is also really grippy even when wet. The half-mushroom absorbs a lot of the vibrations from the trail reducing arm and hand fatigue.

On the underside of the grip is a micro-hex texture that features lots of little knobs and hexagons which let your fingers dig in and squeeze against for extra grip when needed.

The grips are really easy to fit using the single lock-on clamp and the subtle design of the grips doesn’t draw attention and looks great on any bike (black grips). There are also other colours to choose from if you want to colour match your bike.

The grips are really well priced at £16.99 a set which is competitive with other grips of similar performance on the market.

Fabric state that the grips are durable and tough which is true but over time the soft rubber does degrade somewhat but with a year of hard riding that is to be expected and I would much rather have a grip that performs well and degrades than a rubbish grip that lasts forever.
