City Grips Sew-on Leather Grips

Color: Black
Honey
Dark Brown
Black
Thread: White

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 City 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).

Wow

These grips are great! They are well made with quality material and they add a touch of class to my bike. The length was about a quarter of an inch too long, but after soaking they became very pliable and with a tad of shrinkage after drying it worked out (though the tape was useless after wetting, which is just as well because moving them around made them slightly easier to handle when stitching). I used the baseball stitch. I am very happy with these grips!
