Grip Ace is the name of a new handle bar grip that embeds some of the controls into the grip itself, allowing you to operate the turn signals and high-low beam while keeping your fingers on the grip.


The grip also has an auxiliary function that can be used for anything else with an on/off function, like the stereo, seat-heater, or nitrous-oxide.

The company markets this grip on the notion that traditional grips and controls require you to lift your thumb off the grip to operate the lights and turn-signals, and that this compromises safety. I'm not sure I totally agree. I can operate the controls on my Road Star and Ultra Classic pretty safely. Maybe sport bike riders might like this when navigating twisties at 80mph.

It does offer a "cool factor" though. In fact, this might be a great idea for choppers and custom bikes, where clean design is sought after.

The company sells these for handle bars in 1" and 7/8" diameters. They cost $269.00 each, and can be used on any make and model.
