City Grips Sew-on Leather Grips

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).

I don't even know where to start!

Wow. I dont even know where to start! Shipping was super fast and got here within 3 days of ordering. The quality on these grips is insane, and stitching it made it more personal. Love these grips and already have gotten comments about them. Looking forward to wearing the leather and getting a unique look! I was worried about grip but they are sturdy as can be. Thank you walnut studios!!
