The Brooks Slender Leather Handlebar Grips in Brown are a stylish and practical addition to any cyclist's bike. Made from high-quality vegetable tanned leather tape, these grips are designed to provide a comfortable and secure grip while cycling.
The grips feature an aluminium shell around which the bar tape is wrapped in the traditional manner. This design ensures that the leather is held in place securely, and the grips are easy to install and remove if necessary. The aluminium and steel clamps can be removed in the event that the tape requires replacement, making these grips a durable and long-lasting choice.
The tape used for these grips is the same high-quality vegetable tanned leather used for Brooks Saddles, ensuring that they are both comfortable and durable. With an interior diameter of 22.2mm, a length of 130mm, and a weight of 118 grams, these grips are the perfect choice for any cyclist looking for a stylish and practical upgrade to their bike.
The Brooks bike saddle story started way back in 1865, a young man of just 19 years of age was said to have bought 'one of those new-fangled velocipedes' which was fitted with a wooden saddle, this proved excruciating. As luck would have it his father made leather saddles for horses, so the young man known as John Boultbee Brooks set to work in his fathers workshop designing and developing a comfortable saddle from leather. The rest they say is history....
Brooks experience in saddle making goes right back to the beginning - back to the period of solid tyres - and is unequalled by any other house in the world.
That said, they recognise the fact that they cannot rely on their past history alone, so they still build saddles with the same attitude as when they started, 'quality first', both in materials and manufacture. The testament to this is that there are still saddles in active use today, made many many years ago.
