ANIMAL EDWIN GRIPS – REVIEW

I can’t even hazard a guess how many pairs of Animal Edwin grips have been sold over the years. Needless to say, it’s a lot!

Animal Bikes = street riding. There are no two ways about it. Few brands have garnered as much respect in our industry (and outside it, it must be said) as Animal Bikes. Think of New York City street, think of BMX and hip hop, think of Ralph Sinisi, Bob Scerbo, Butcher, Edwin Delarosa, Tom White, Chase Dehart or Benny L (to name but a few)… Think Animal.

“One of the best feeling BMX grips in the world – this is why they’ve been so popular for so long.”

“I incorporated Animal Bikes on January 1st, 2000 to represent and supply bike parts for BMX street riding for the new century. My riding crew in and around New York City pedaled around all day and night finding amazing spots and getting as crazy as we could on them. Whenever someone would do a wild move, they were called an Animal. It only made sense for me to call the company Animal as it was based on the toughest parts for the craziest riders.” –Ralph Sinisi, Owner, Animal Bikes

For the last 17 years, Animal has been such a real brand, it almost seems like the pinnacle, the epitome of BMX street. Of course, there are plenty of other flavours out there and while we wouldn’t want to detract from any other brands, we can all recognise that Animal is right up there at the top.

The design of the Edwin grip is pretty simple. It’s based on a diamond with angled ridges radiating out from it. This design combined with the soft Kraton rubber makes for one of the best feeling BMX grips in the world – this is why they’ve been so popular for so long.

Edwin Delarosa is a legend in his own right. A proper NYC street shredder, hugely influential and often imitated. We don’t see much from him these days, but his importance is still very much felt.

The Edwin grip is an undeniable classic BMX product, seen on handlebars worldwide for many years already and no doubt for many years to come.
