Nisna Industries have sent over some gorgeous wooden bicycle accessories in the past, and their latest is no exception. The new Daily grips are made from mahogany and maple woods with an aircraft grade aluminum core and brass fasteners. They’re meant to last a lifetime.

The project has been in the works for quite a while, with testing for different material types, shapes and lengths. They ended up with the shape you see here, which uses two brass screws to tighten them against the handlebar. That gives them the full width of the grip to use for hand placement rather than losing space to a lock ring, and they say the brass is soft enough not to mar your handlebar but strong enough to securely hold the grip in place. The wood grip is pressed over an alloy core to give it a consistent shape and strong foundation that’ll prevent it from cracking during installation or use.

It just went live on Kickstarter with a very small ask of $7,000, and they’re well on their way. More pics, video and links below…

Minimum pledge to get a set of grips is $55, after the campaign they’ll bump to $65. Initial orders should deliver in November.

How are hardwood grips comfortable? I think I prefer a bit more shock absorption for those bumpy roads.

Checker those babies like a shotgun’s fore-end and I’m in! I can’t imagine how slippery they’d be in the damp.

$55 for grips of questionable comfort that almost definitely require gloves. Hipsters these days…

With all the grips out there, I do not see the point in these. Wood certainly is not for comfort. If they are dying to make wood parts, let them make wooden headset spacers, fenders, or a waterbottle holder, or something.
