ODI is the originator of lock-on grip technology, and the design is so ingenious that KTM and Husqvarna have incorporated ODI Lock-On Grips into their off-road production lineup. The clutch- side grip installs in seconds with a 3 mm Allen-head bolt, while the throttle side comes complete with a new plastic throttle tube. In addition to a full line of grips, ODI produces a complete line of high-performance handlebars. The Podium Flight MX Bar is made of 2014-T6 alloy and has a proprietary tubing profile that yields great feel and comfort while enjoying great strength and resilience.
We headed out to Glen Helen Raceway this week to put the ODI Podium Flight handlebars and V2 Lock-On Grip System to the test with TransWorld Motocross test pilot Mike Sleeter. More accustomed to the feel and look of a crossbar-style handlebar, Sleeter breaks down the feel of the Flight handlebars and also goes into detail on the very easy-to-install Lock-On grip system.
