Bare Knuckle Bicycle Grips

Color: Dark Brown
Honey

Thread: White

A modern twist on our classic leather grips, the Bare Knuckle Grips feature modern cut-outs for both tactile finger holds and submarine windows to the chrome of your handlebars below.

Experience both luxury and performance on your handlebars with old-fashioned vegetable-tanned leather grips. Durable in the elements, warm to the touch, and grippier when wet, our natural leather is a performance material with a beautiful look. 

Like our other easy to sew on products, the Bare Knuckle Grips come as a kit that you stitch on yourself with pre-punched stitching holes, needle, thread, and instructions. 

The natural oils in your hands burnish  our high-quality American leather into a glossy patina that will last you a lifetime. You get to keep the patina you've earned: you can transfer it from bike to bike, and over the years it will only get more beautiful with use and time.

Fits standard flat handlebars with a 0.875" (7/8") diameter (approximately 22mm).

Plan for shrinkage

if you plan to soak the leather for a while to make it softty it will significantly shrink once dry so keep that in mind if u have to cut to size :3 the quality is nice and now my bike is sick xxx
