you will love these grips...i have had a couple sets of these and they are by far the best possible grips you can get. i have tried a ton. these actually do absord shock and they work awesome without gloves (perfect for xterra). i am not sponsored by them...i bought my grips at full retail and they are worth every penny. i got the white ones on the yeti now and they clean up super easy. next ones will be pink ones for sure.
