The Fizik Countrygrips are smart because they allow you to replace worn, dirty, or torn covers with fresh ones in just a few minutes. That s all part of the design. These Fizik Grip Replacement Covers are a blend of buffed and smooth Microtex material. They re thinly padded so the feel is akin to a nice bar wrap on a road bike. You know the kind -- not too thick and not stretched too thin -- just right, with enough padding to insulate your palms from sharp bumps and still be small enough in diameter to offer an easy, comfortable grip. The Fizik Cross Country Grip Replacement Covers have a plastic reinforced seam that slides into the grip core to absolutely keep them from twisting when you ride. They are available in Black and White/Grey.
