2021 BMX Grips Buyers Guide

Grips…you hold onto ’em. Some people like them hard, some people like them soft. Some people like them with flanges, some people like them without. Some people like them brand new, some people like them worn in, some weirdos out there boil them (Really, that’s a thing). There’s even that one grom at your local park who rides without them, because he just likes the way it looks. This buyers guide is for everyone except that kid, courtesy of Source BMX.
