Whether the Surge and the Surge LT suits you, you will receive the same all-in-one oval with the Gription Strip. There is one difference between the two, and that is the size and weight of the oval. The Surge employs a larger profile oval that measures 1 1/2” long (top to bottom) with a weight of 20 ounces. A smaller profile oval graces the Surge LT (a smaller gripping surface for those with smaller hands) and boasts a lighter weight. The length of the Surge LT is 1 1/8”, and it weighs only 16 ounces – just a hair more than a standard, uncoated hand rim (which typically weighs 13-15 ounces)
The Gription Strip™ is a rubber strip that goes all the way around the top surface of the oval handrim.
The Gription Strip is particularly helpful when going up ramps, hills, or when traversing difficult surfaces (e.g., like deep-pile carpeting). Smooth side surface means no-burn braking.
The grippier surface is particularly helpful when going up ramps, hills, or when traversing difficult surfaces (e.g., like deep-pile carpeting). The remaining surfaces of the oval (the side surfaces) are hard anodized in black to provide a smooth braking surface.
