Thread: Q-grips?

    Q-grips?

    I'm ordering a new Ti Lite and the Q-grips are an option. I was wondering how sticky/tacky are they? I currently use foam grips and love how sticky they are if I wipe them off daily. They aren't an option though.

    I read his response. He said they are like a slick vinyl. That doesn't sound very sticky/tacky. I talked to the company and they said they sticky. I wanted to know what someone thinks of them (sticky wise) that uses them daily.

    i would like to know also. I also tried a setup similiar to this using the 2242 rubber tape and went around the outside of my handrim then the under neath then the top. The first couple of days it stayed sticky and tacky. Now its not as sticky but still a big improvement over bare aluminum

    Anyone out there using q-grips?

    I finally got a chance to see them at RESNA. They have a neoprene coating which felt to me like a cross between a vinyl coated rim and a foam coated rim.

    PushBax are also coated with neoprene and provide a little more grip (at the expense of being heavier).

    From a durability standpoint, Q-Grips should last longer than PushBlax, vinyl or foam coated rims.

    These are just my first impressions about a newer product that not many of us have seen. Time will tell if my impressions are accurate as people who have used the other types use Q grips.

    I love them. Had for 2 months worth every penny.

    Are there more people now that had a chance to compare the Q-Grips to Pushblax?
    I have Pushblax and I am satisfied but if the Q-Grips are as sticky and last longer I could switch.

    Another question would be if the Q-Grips add the same/less/more width as the double stuff Pushblax?

    Thanks.

    kirkwood,

    There is also a recent Care Cure Community discussion about Q-Grips here.
