If you buy a red and white WTB Rocket V saddle, some Crank Bros Mallet pedals and these new signature grips, you’ve got all three of Steve Peat’s contact points sorted. Then you’ll just need his skill, determination and vision and who knows what might happen?
Peaty grips are made for Lizard Skins by ODI so are interchangeable with all Lock-on hardware including collars and cartridges. The chocolate-block pattern is unique to Lizard Skins and while the 30.5mm diameter is slightly fatter than a 29mm Ruffian, it feels compact and direct. It also features a soft rubber compound for increased traction and the great man’s name emblazoned in the centre.
Cartridges are available in white with red and blue clamps if you’re gripped by a patriotic fervour, or a more practical grey if, like us, you don’t want to be cleaning your grips after every ride.
