Following the successful launch of their single lock on Signature grips for Aaron Gwin, ODI Is rolling out three new grips with the new locking system. Calling it their Version 2.1 lock on system, the grip uses a tapered plastic core with a single locking collar on the inboard side for a grip that claims to not slip or rock even without the second collar.

While Gwin’s AG-1 will still be available, the new Elite series offers three new options depending on your grip style and preference…

Part of the magic of the elite series is that ODI developed a way to create an asymmetric grip on the plastic core. That opened up a whole new world of ergonomics for them, which is on display in the Elite series. The Flow grip shown above uses an offset design with a soft rubber compound and a half waffle pattern for added control.

The Motion grip looks pretty simple, but uses a variable knurl pattern along with the offset grip design and soft pro compound to make it the slimmest grip in the group.

My personal favorite out of the three was the Pro grip which still uses the offset design and soft pro rubber, but adds a square textured block to one side and the half waffle on the other side for a grip that is still slim but feels incredibly comfy under your hands.

All three grips will be available in black, Red, or gray and will sell for $28.95 and will be available October 1.
