What are the Benefits of Motorcycle Tank Grips? – Reducing pressure on your body

A bare motorcycle tank can be very slippery. You may find yourself sliding around your bike under cornering and braking, while using your legs and arms to counter act the movement, putting extra strain and pressure on your joints.

Our Tank Grips are designed to reduce pressure on your shoulders and wrists whilst riding by creating more contact points between yourself and your bike. Without Tank Grips it takes a surprisingly amount of work to keep planted to your bike, as you have to grip harder with your knees and assist with your arms and shoulders. With our Tank Grips, they take the pressure off your body, so you don’t have to fight to stay in position and therefore make riding your bike even more enjoyable.

As well as road users, our Tank Grips are used by many of the world’s leading race teams and riders from WorldSBK to MotoGP and British Superbikes. Many find they help with recovering from injuries when getting back on a bike too.

Glenn Irwin chatted to us last season at Cadwell Park after returning to racing following a dislocated shoulder. He discussed how the grips helped him ride while still recovering. You can watch the video here.

MotoGP rider Pol Esparago was also spotted this week at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya using our Tank Grips on his R1. After his huge crash at Portimao, he is still recovering from surgery on multiple fractures. He is making fantastic progress and was looking fast on his training bike. Our Tank Grips will be helping to keep pressure off his wrists, shoulders and legs as he recovers to full fitness.

Alex Rins of LCR Team is also on the road to recovery, although he’s not quite up to riding yet. He was getting reacquainted with his bike today. It’s ready to go with our Evo Tank Grips when he is.

We offer 3 materials for our Tank Grips, Evo, Pro and Silicone because grips are very much a personal choice, and what feels best for one rider, may not suit another. The Evo surface has pronounced domes and offers the highest level of grip. This is our most popular grip for racers, as they are usually hanging right off the bike with their knees and elbows down. The Pro is smoother and offers slightly more movement on the bike. Pro is our most popular grip with road users and riders that take part in the odd track day, as it covers both aggressive and leisurely riding. Silicone is our cushioned material that is best for commuters and touring, creating comfort as well as grip.
