Bare Knuckle Grips

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).

Great for the tropic sun of Key West!!

Rubber grips don't work down here in the tropical climate of Key West. The sun melts them to a sticky mess that ends up all over your hands. With the leather knuckle grips I bought from you guys that problem is gone. Not to mention the superb quality of craftsmanship and the great look they give my conch cruiser. We will be ordering a set for the girlfriends cruiser very soon. Thanks guys for putting out a quality handmade product.

Custom fixie bars

Very happy with this purchase. I have the honey color and they already have a nice patina. I installed them on a 3/4" galvanized pipe that I am using as a custom handlebar (complete with connectors to give them a "bullhorn" look). I've been stopped a few times on the street by people asking to take pictures. Easy to install and look great!
