"TOGS provide a handy place to hook your thumbs"

Control - Comfort - Climbing

Control - Togs thumb grips add a
control point to the top of the bar. 
Control the bar with your thumbs
and conveniently index shift and
brake from the Togs position. 

Comfort - Togs give your hands
and wrists a change of  position
This means less wrist flexing and
hand clenching, making an overall
happier ride. Great for hand issues.

Climb - 
Togs excel at climbing both
in and out of the saddle. Gain climb
-ing leverage on top of the bar, w/o
grabbing it.

Togs are great for commuters, recreational bikers and racers alike. They fit nearly all handlebars and grips, including lock-on grips (standard 22.2 mm diameter). Togs are not ideally suited for grip-shift setups.

Togs are made in the USA from reinforced nylon resin.  Carbon Togs are made from 40% Carbon Fiber and are hinged for easy install on the bar without removing grips.

Installation Notes

  • If you don't have it already, make space for Togs between your grip and components. Consult BikeRadar's cockpit setup guide, for general component setup advice
  • Lightly tighten Togs until snug. Togs should rotate on the bar when forced. Move Togs while riding, to find your desired position(s). 
  • Most riders find that Togs function best with shorter grips (~115 mm). Shorter grips allow for quick transition into Togs without sliding your hands inboard while also freeing up space on the bar. Custom ESI 115 mm grips are available in the Togs store. OURY, Ergon and other companies also make shorter grips.
