  • Installation: 

    1) Clean any bar tape adhesive residue off bars with alcohol
    2) Slide rings into desired locations *
    3) Set rings with electrical tape
    4) Re-tape bar tape **
    5) Install TOGS with logo facing the rider 
    6) Tighten Togs on rings until snug (less than 1 Nm). Don’t over tighten. Togs should not rotate on bars. 

    * It is a good idea to test ride Togs before re-taping to ensure your preferred location. Most people install togs inline with the brake levers, for easy brake access from the Togs position.

    ** Swap step 4 and 5 if you wish to wrap Togs under the bar tape, or if bar tape is too thick to install Togs over the tape.

    Updated: For $40 Should Get Extra Screws

    I installed them but couldn't get comfortable with them. As I tried to move them to a more comfortable position, the tiny screws suffered from tightening and re-tightening and then I dropped one of the screws and couldn't find it. I looked up the price of these screws online and I think they are about 8 cents each on McMaster-Carr. I feel a bit cheated that TOGS did not furnish extra screws. I pretty much gave up on them after that. I may revisit them some time in the future after I find some more screws.

    Update: TOGS graciously sent more screws and a wrench for free. I really appreciated the response. Once the TOGS are installed in the optimum location, it really makes riding in the drops more comfortable and put your hands in the same place every time for easy reach to the brakes. Thank you, TOGS!

    We sent a replacement set of Torx screws and wrench in case either was malformed/defective.

    Thanks for the recommendation to add a spare screw. We have not had that request before. We will now add a spare screw to each Road Togs order in case someone needs it.

    Carbon seems like plastic in this application

    Seems like two pieces of plastic that should have cost way less then it did

    <p></p><p></p><p>Road Togs are injection molded in Colorado from nylon resin. The resin is infused with carbon fibers for strength and other preferred properties. Carbon fiber makes up 40% of the carbon-nylon mixture and gives RT their carbon black color. The tensile and flexural yield strength of the cf resin is quite impressive at 32,100 psi and 48,000 psi respectively. For comparison standard polyethylene or polypropylene plastic tensile strength is as low as 305 and 1,310 psi respectively.
    <br><br><br>The CF may not be fully visible due to the way the resin finishes on the surface. All Togs products have a full money back satisfaction guarantee. Thanks for your review!</p>

    Like hoods for your thumbs

    Threw them on the bars, went for a ride, and five hours later I was hooked. Who doesn’t love more hand positions? These add a great one, especially when descending. I’ve never felt so stable while going downhill fast.

    Comfort and control where you need it most

    Crazy how something so small can make such a big difference. I used to ride the canyon grail which had extra thumb rests built into the hover bar. Was such a fan of the comfort on descents with that feature that when I got a new bike I decided to get these to mimic that without dealing with a proprietary cockpit. Not only did it work but it exceeded expectations. Comfort and control in the drops has never been better! Also helps me to stay in the drops longer which allows for an aero advantage over the competition.

    Super Wonderful- Practical

    I bought these after watching a Dylan Thomas YouTube video, and having several unhappy interactions with flared gravel bars. Got them installed, no issues. Rode them in a gravel race on a very sloppy, rainy day. They provided all the confidence needed to keep out of the wind and apply power steadily. Bona fide as advertised. And faster riders than me would even benefit more from being able to stay in the drops longer.
