ProTaper Pillow Top MX Lite grips are a smaller version of the legendary Pillow Top grips. It borrows the same great Vibrasonix pillow top on each grip combined with a gel-like surface compound. This combination reduces the vibration which is inherently transferred from the handle into the grips. The result is a softer feel, where the grips act as a cushion on each hand.
ProTaper has really figured out how to create comfortable dirt bike grips with the Pillow Top Lites, but that's not the only thing to get excited about. The surface compound is tacky and will keep your hand from sliding around on the grip, but the inner compound is also important, keeping the grip firmly in place on the handlebar. The Anti-Rip Tip is a separate compound from the rest of the grip and is designed for off-road rigors and built for longevity.
Aside from vibration reduction, another great thing about the Pillow Top Lite hand grips is that they have a self-cleaning pattern. This means that when you're getting mud as high as your handlebar, you don't have to worry about your grips as they're designed to shed mud. This is a great feature for trail riding, but it's especially great for MX when you don't have time to stop and clean your hand grips.
The big difference between the Pillow Top Lite and the original Pillow Top is the small diameter. This means that the grips don't feel as large, keeping you in better control of your bike.
When it comes to MX hand grips, ProTaper has a real winner. If you think you're ready to handle an extra level of comfort on either the MX track or the trail, pick up a set of the ProTaper Pillow Top Lite grips.
