On the desk #4 MUGAN Grips 2014

IMG_0133 After introducing the new VEX rubber compound last month we thought we would drop this next 'on the desk' update on the ever popular Mugan grips. It's not the first time I've spoke about my love for this grip, it's just a good feeling type grip, it doesn't wear down too fast and the pattern is nice enough not to offend.

For more details head to the products section and check the video below giving details of our new VEX compound, which all grips will be made.

VEX: The new grip compound.

A successful grip is usually defined by two main characteristics, durability and the softness. These characteristics have always varied from grip to grip, and often riders have had to choose softness at the compromise of durability, well we think thats all about to change.

We have been working behind the scenes for a long time and now it’s here. Vex is our new rubber compound, it has that soft gummy feel that we love but at the same time, it's incredibly durable and long lasting. In our friction/wear test our new Vex material has shown it has x10 the durability of a normal Kraton grip. This new compound will now be used on all WTP grips, so look for the new Vex logo on the packing.
