PNW Components offers a great collection of stylish and durable parts to outfit your bike. The Loam Grips are their first attempt at a grip and they didn’t hold back. A pair of grips retails for $24 and packs unique tech into a cool design.
The Loam Grip feature water-shedding fins, their “Happy Camper Compound”, and a unique grip pattern that enhances traction and provides support.
The shape of the grip’s “fins” allows water to wick away on wet rides while absorbing vibrations. The Loam grips rubber compound is dubbed the Happy Camper Compound, this is PNW’s blend that’s soft enough to absorb those vibrations while firm enough to hold shape. In other words, it’s a tacky grip that has some flex but isn’t too spongy.
As you look at the PNW Loam Grip you notice two distinct patterns. Thin lines running horizontally to enhance grip and a thicker mountain (chevron style) pattern for the pad of your hand to sit on. The combination of these patterns and “fins” with the Happy Camper Compound brings together a comfortable grip that is designed for the elements.
To keep the Loam Grips fixed to the bars, PNW uses a single lock to keep things snug and free from spinning.
The Loam Grips measure 133.5 mm in length and are offered in two sizes. 30mm and 34mm, or Regular and XL. The Regular grips are the current size of our grips on test and weigh in at 90 grams.
While you can stick with classic black grips on your electric bike, you have 9 other color options to choose from. In typical PNW fashion, add some personality to your bike with some color.
