Removable and reusable... Installation is simple... On the road, the added control is inspiring. The pad has some give that allows you to dig in with your knees, locking your lower body to the bike for better control while letting your elbows remain bent so as not to upset the chassis while braking and cornering. Unlike other more aggressive pads, the Gripster's surface is relatively smooth, easy to transition across without snagging and doesn't tear up your leathers. After months on the road and several track days, the Gripsters have proven their worth. They don't show any signs of wear and the edges are still firmly stuck down.
