Accessories specialist Wolf Tooth has expanded its product offering with the acquisition of the grip product line from RedMonkey Sports. Five new grips in multiple colours and sizes are available initially, with further expansion planned to include additional grips and grip accessories in the coming months.
Wolf Tooth notes that these new extruded silicone foam grips have added durability and a soft, tacky feel for extra comfort and control. All of these grips are made with 100% proprietary dual-density silicone foam compound, which provides vibration damping, conforms to a rider’s hand for improved comfort, and maintains durability.
Wolf Tooth’s partnership with RedMonkey Sports began two years ago when the companies teamed up to release Wolf Tooth Fat Paw Grips. The recent acquisition of the product line is seen as an evolution of that partnership. It allows both organisations to expand their bike shop offering while allowing RedMonkey Sports to focus on new and current products. Production will remain in California, while packaging and fulfilment will move to Wolf Tooth’s shop in Minnesota.
