Tech Spec sent me every style of their tank grips for our Triumphs, and I tested all of them for at least one month each. I ride street daily and settled on their C3 grips -- perfect combination of riding comfort and "tackiness".

LOVE my C3! Soft but grippy. I don't wear leathers and only ride street. No complaints. I was torn between Snake skins and C3. Settled on C3 due to only street and jeans.

Snakeskin gets my vote (altho I have not ridden with any others).

I have snake skin Dave Moss cut on my Daytona and love them whether riding in jeans or Leathers.

C3 in full size would get my vote for the street. They are awesome and almost a must on the Daytona with all the weight that you have on your inner thighs...10 times better than before...

I have Snakeskin on one trackie and C3 on my other.

The C3 is far softer (its kinda cool actually) and i find the grip levels provided are actually pretty similar keeping in mind im using leathers. I have a feeling the snakeskin will last longer as they seem to be harder wearing and more or less indestructable. Having said that I havent really had the C3's long enough to report any degredation so far.

I also have Stomps on my road bike. They grip both textiles and leathers extremely well. Ive never experianced them ripping up my textiles (but im sure it doesnt do them much good!) but did notice they have given my leathers a very hard time. If you have softer style leathers or were fussy about the condition of your pants i would stick with Techspecs.

C3, Full Size.

I have ridden about 10,000kms with them and haven't noticed any wear and tear at all. Snakeskins would be fine too but I prefer the softer compound.

I'd imagine the snakeskins would feel similar to the stock handlebar grips.

I'll give the full-size C3's a try this spring, as my Snakeskins are losing grip and moving. I've never been satisfied with the "Dave Moss" cut Snakeskins, @ 5'-9" tall, I don't think enough of my legs touch the smaller cut to do much good, I believe the regular cut would be a lot better.

Personally, I don't like the black grips against the Rhoulette Green tank, to me it sort of looks cheesy or something. But the clear Stomp Grips look like utter crap on the green, so not much choice.

Which cut is that? I got some but they are not that nice cut that fills in the whole tank.
