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).

Highly Recommended

Very nice product, packed with great care. Excellent communication throughout the transaction (still waiting for a competitor to answer a question I asked weeks ago - moot point now). Haven’t installed the grips yet (bike is a project) but I am confident I’ll get support if I need it.

Exactly as described

I am super satisfied with my grips. Installing them, I didn't encounter anything that walnut didn't prepare me for.

Very comfortable!

They look great on my new bike. Thanks!

Fantastic grips!

I was a little apprehensive about putting these on but it couldn't have been simpler. The instructions were easy to follow and they look and feel great on my bike. They replied to my messages really quickly and were very helpful with my questions. The grips also came VERY quickly. Would definitely order from again!
