Threw on these tank grips to see if they’ll help improve control of body motion. It’s good to grip the tank with your legs under braking in order to anchor your body weight away from your arms. Gripping a smoothly painted tank can be tricky. I decided to try out TechSpec’s newer “C3” pads, which are made from a synthetic rubber and less thick & lighter than the original “Snake Skins.”
We’ll see how they perform and hold up, but aesthetically, these TechSpecs blend in nicely with my bike being black.
