Easton Lock-On carbon friendly handlebar GripEaston has made their first entry into handlebar lock-on grips a carbon-friendly one.

The Easton Lock-On Grip is carbon handlebar-friendly. The metal lock-on clamp attaches to a plastic sleeve, which then compresses onto the bars. So you don't have to worry about over tightening the grips, or scratching your carbon handlebars.

These grips come in 30mm or 33mm diameter widths, for more individual riding comfort. Another nice comfort feature: the rubber on the grip goes over the metal clamp-on, so your hand never has to touch any metal.

MSRP is $25.

RockShox PIKE RCT3 27.5We really like the changes to the new and improved RockShox PIKE RCT3 suspension forks.

Lighter weight for sure, and the new 'Charger' damper is a sealed but serviceable damper that employs an expanding bladder in order to compensate for shaft discplacement. The extruded bladder design is insanely durable, resists damping change during extended downhills and has virtually zero pressure offset for small bump sensitivity.
