Brooks' Cambium Slender Grips incorporate aluminum shells around which handlebar tape is wrapped in the manner of traditional bar tape. The tape is made from the same durable organic cotton and rubber fabric that Brooks uses for their Cambium saddles. It's held in place by aluminum clamps that can be removed to replace the tape if necessary. The grips are available in different lengths to accommodate bikes with and without bar-mount shifters. These fine grips are made in Italy for Brooks.
