    So, I wrote to their company and ask for details, this is what they answer:

    To answer your question about the durability of the Gription Strip on the Surge Handrim: The Gription Strip is designed to be highly durable. It is not a “replaceable” or temporary rubber strip; instead it has been inserted into a v-shape groove in the handrim and then bonded to the surface. In early testing with the product, we focused on maximizing the durability of the bond and the Surge today reflects those efforts.

    Yeah... I hate the strip. Going down the wheelchair ramp it burns. I have gloves, but I hate them.

    I will say that is only regret I have in this new chair.
    I am trying to find gloves that do hurt my fingers.

    As for durability, I think they will last as long as the life of the chair. The .jpg are a couple of pictures of my hand rims. The rubber strip is what I was trying to show.
