"TOGS provide a handy place to hook your thumbs"


Comfort - Control - Climbing

Comfort - TOGS (Thumb-Over-Grip-System) create a comfortable new hand position for your bike. Bringing your hands to the top of the bar minimizes wrist flexing and hand clenching that leads to fatigue. 
 

Control -
 TOGS provide an excellent control point on top of the bar. Gain lateral stability on the bar and efficiently index shift and brake from the TOGS position. 
 

Climb - 
TOGS excel at climbing both in and out of the saddle. TOGS provide climbing leverage on the bar for steep inclines and minimize hand clenching on climbs, opening the chest for breathing.

USERS

TOGS are great for commuters, recreational bikers and racers alike. They fit any standard 22.2 mm diameter bar.
Togs are compatible with nearly all grips, including lock-on grips.  TOGS work best with shorter grips (~115 mm) because shorter grips allow for quick transition into Togs without sliding your hands inboard and also free up space on the bar. Custom ESI 115 mm grips are offered in the Togs store. 
You may get TOGS to work with grip shifters but they're not ideally suited for that system.

Construction

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

  • Lightly tighten TOGS until snug. TOGS should rotate on the bar when forced. Rotate TOGS forward while riding, to your desired position(s). 



  • Togs function best with shorter grips (~115 mm). Shorter grips allow for quick transition into Togs without sliding your hands inboard and also free up space on the bar. Custom ESI 115 mm grips are available in the Togs store.
    You should have space for TOGS between your grips and brakes consult the 'brake position' section of BikeRadar's cockpit setup guide, for proper component placement.
