Body and weight control are essential techniques with not only aggressive/performace riding, but also with sport/casual touring. By gripping the tank with your legs, you will improve overall control of your body motion, weight position and posture. That is why AltRider relies on TechSepc USA to outfit our bikes with their Gripster Tank Pads.
GRIPSTER Tank Grips:
- Increase/maintain control of weight/body position
- Eliminate sliding
- Improve riding style
- Decrease body fatigue
- Improve weight adjustment
- Protect tank from abuse
- Improve re-sale value
- Remove and re-use
- Customize for functionality as well as creativity
- Provide benefits of grip material without damaging leathers
- Developed in the United States of America
TechSpec's theory of achieiving a solid grip is based on material properties and surface area contact. Our products are available in three (3) unique materials: Snake Skin, High Fusion, and the new C3. Each of our materials were created for your riding enhancement.
