I dunno when ever I mountian bike the stock grips are the first things to go.
Keeps me from having to curl my hands so much, which alleviates the pump.
This isn't much of a problem on the street but in the trails, like when I was stationed in Guam. You'd get a hard fore arm pump in the jungle. Those wild pigs were scary.
Also now that I'm doing track only I'm noticing it alot more than I ever have. I think eventually my stamina will get better though.
Foam ATV grips, perfect fit, not to fat not to skinny, soft and cushn'y, soaks up all vibs, if you are and iron grip type you can squeeze them, spray the inside with hair spray and slide on let dry and ride.

I found this too. I bought some thicker grips and my forearms and wrists got worse, I ended up taking them off and putting the stockers back on my RC.
It probably has more to do with "fitting properly", it is likely some of you goons do need larger diameter. The stockers fit my paws pretty well, but they could be softer.
I like to have the same grips on the RC as I do on my BMX bike. I use Primo "the wall" grips & modify them by cutting the flange off and then putting the grips on backwards. They are a bit thicker, have a relatively smooth pattern to them and last a while. You can find them online or from just about any decent bike shop that carries Primo products.
