Togs - "XC Racer Setup Tricks"

A Better Grip

MTB Togs are thumb grips to hold on to when you ride on top of the bars. Togs offer superior control, comfort and climbing leverage.

Control - Togs open the trail or commute to top-of-the-bar riding. They add a secure control point to the bar with full access to shifters and brakes. 

Comfort -
 Togs give your hands a change of position. This makes for a happy ride with less wrist and hand fatigue. Great for hand issues.

Climbing - 
Togs thumb grips excel at climbing, both in and out of the saddle. Gain climbing leverage and minimize clenching the bar.


MTB Togs are great for commuters, recreational bikers and racers alike. They fit all standard flat bar handlebars (22.2 mm) and grips, including lock-on grips.  Togs are not ideally suited for SRAM Grip-Shift & TwistLoc.

General MTB Togs install notes:

  • Install Togs between your grips and brakes. Make space if necessary. Space is advised for proper cockpit setup, whether using Togs or not. (ref. BikeRadar's cockpit setup)
  • Move Togs while riding, to find desired position(s). 
  • Togs are designed to work with all grips. Some riders prefer to run Togs with shorter grips  for quick transition into Togs without sliding hands inboard.

Road Togs 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.

**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.

About TOGS

The idea for MTB Togs was born on a gravel commute. The road was smooth enough to #gothumbsup on the bars, but puddle dips and washboards jostled the bike, creating mini-panic events. So, we created the world's first thumb grips. Togs immediately provided the control and comfort we wanted on top of the bar,  and added climbing leverage as a bonus. Installed just inside the grips with full access to shifters and brakes, Togs have proved to be simple. small. and effective.

Road Togs are a direct result of riders asking for Togs for their road and gravel bikes. Multiple riders were hacking MTB Togs to fit the drops. We followed their lead and designed drop bar specific Togs for the ultimate in drop bar control, comfort, descending and sprinting.

Togs, LLC is a family business located in Utah at the foothills of the Wasatch mountains. Our mission is to make better grips for Mountain, Road and Gravel bikes. Togs are designed, manufactured and packaged in the Rocky Mountains, USA with the help of a dedicated US team including:

 Curvature |  Wasatch Container  |  Sovereign Plastics  |  APS  | Jibe Media  |   Maschoff Brennan   



Togs are currently available online at and in local bike shops. Checkout the wholesale page If you'd like to carry Togs in your US or International store. Togs are distributed through Quality Bike Products (QBP) in the US.
