brooks-grip

Brooks handlebar grips are mad up of a stack of leather discs, set edgewise and held together by two metal caps and three spokes!

The fact that the leather is edgewise is supposed to give a better grip. They look pretty coarse when new, but after considerable use the surface should wear smooth and pretty.
