Body and weight control are essential techniques for both aggressive, performance riding as well as casual touring. By gripping the tank with your legs, you will improve overall control of your body motion, weight position and posture. This means you enhance your riding experience while simultaneously providing bodywork and gear protection.

TechSpec has quickly become one of the leaders in high quality tank grips and protectors with their theory of achieving a solid grip based on material properties and surface area contact.

X-Line is TechSpec's newest material and brings with it the next generation of tank grips. X-Line combines the comfort material from the older C3 material (gummy rubber) and a brand new 3M material to create a unique tank grip that provides superior comfort and friction while still maintaining ease of movement. TechSpec's newest material has been tested and approved by some of the most aggressive riders on and off the track. Each R3 X-Line kit includes two tank side grips (one per side).

Snake Skin is the thickest (.125") tank grip with a low profile diamond pattern. It has a high traction rubber feel and is extremely popular within the racing community and more aggressive street riders. It features excellent wear properties and provides significant grip for your legs. Each R3 Snake Skin kit includes two tank side grips (one per side) as well as a matching Snake Skin spine-style center tank protector.

My son scratched his gas tank a little bit and I decided to give these TechSpec Gripster Snake skins a try. They went on smooth and great fit around the gas tank. TST did a great job on packaging and quickly shipped my TechSpec.

Advantages: Thick but flexible and great grip.

Disadvantages: Even after watching the DIY videos. Some areas of the adhesive will lift off. So what I did was just put blue tape around it to help the adhesive bond to the gas tank over night. I would've gave a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the adhesive issue. Just being honest.
