Road I'm assuming? Giro may be a good place to start. Not that clued up on road ones but have Giro Xar and it's good for MTB and I felt it more justified than buying an s-works. Also quite light but not aero enough to make it feel like it could snap from being really light if that makes sense. In short, Maybe try Giro. Smiling

Edit: Heard some good reviews on this.

Been riding a fair bit again recently, despite hellish run of punctures. Really enjoying it again.

I had a planet x dirty disco until it was stolen a few months ago.
Best bike I've owned.
Real quality for the price and decent company to deal with too.

Can anyone recommended some good MTB handlebar grips? Preferably with a bit of padding and won't slip around.

Does it make a difference whether I'm wearing gloves or not as to which one is better?
