The Deity Knuckledusters feature three distinct grip patterns; a half-waffle underside for fingers, a chevron design for a comfortable palm feel, and short-but-wide ribs where the thumb rests to help eliminate any side-to-side movement. After mounting the new grips, the narrow (but not-too-narrow) 32mm diameter of the grips was pretty spot on to our preferences. With a width of 132mm and only a single clamp on the inside edge of the grip, finding your preferred hand placement isn’t a problem even if you prefer to rest your palm slightly hanging over the outside edge of the grip.
After spending half a day on our old grips, we swapped them out for the new Knuckledusters for some back-to-back comparison. The first thing we noticed was that the placement of the three different grip patterns was spot-on, with our natural hand position falling into place exactly where Deity planned.
