Track bikes are bicycles designed and optimized especially for high-speed racing inside bike indoor bike race tracks called “velodromes”, as well as in outdoor tracks. Unlike its equally speedy cousin, the road bikes, track bikes are fixed-gear types, which means it only has a single gear. It also does not have any freewheel or brakes, which means the rider must keep on pedaling to send this bike flying to ultra fast speeds. This single purpose of racing technically reduces the track grips into nothing but mere hand support. Unlike mountain bike grips that are designed for heavy-duty performance, the track grip is basically a simple piece of grip meant to give the hand something to hold on to.
Because the rider does not need to do any trick or any hard climbs, a simple, cylindrical track grip will do just fine. They are usually made of rubber compound in single or dual rubber design configuration. They are inserted on the drop down handlebars of the track bike. They can also be used on riser handlebars of a fixed-gear bike. One brand that is popular among users and reviewers is the All City Track Grips. It keeps its design simple, which complements the basic look of the track bike. It comes in various colors such as blue, pink, green, and red. The 175mm length is enough to fit any handlebar, and thick enough to last for many uses. You can get All City Track Grip and other brands here by simply browsing the site.
