    I'm starting the new chair process, too, and I'm going to look at aftermarket hand rims as well.
    From what I've seen the Surge LT's are the ones I want to look at. If I have chance to try anything out, I'll let you know.

      I got a pair of Q-Grips a few months ago.....they are great. I was hooked on soft, foam covered handrims for years I but couldn't find them anymore. The Q-Grips are easy on my hands, very tacky or "grippy" and are more durable than the foam covered rims.

            Natural Fit LT's work great too.

              Instead of handrims, maybe try some gloves. A very significant decrease of grabbing force needed to grab the rim, without worrying about chewing up the handrim bashing it against things. You can really power through stuff with the added grip. Keeps hands cleaner too. I like these, usually under $20 delivered off ebay.

                  The rubber strip on those rims make my hands pitch black, even just rolling around the house. I like the feel of the rims but I had to get rid of them because of how dirty my hands looked.

                    I demoed out a pair of some rubber tightly ribbed and ribs the other day at a rugby competition.. They were awesome and had super grip. I wish I could remember the name of it

                      RibGrips?

                      Can you compare them to Q-Grips?

                      Thanks.

                        I really love my Surge handrims as well. They are so comfortable, grip really well (I have full hand strength though) and the rubber doesn't blacken my hands.

                          The rubber rims are brill, only issue is when out and about you will need some gloves otherwise you'll end up with friction burns if you like flying and quick
