Best traction tank pads

I need to get my hands on some soon, as I'm always sliding forward in the seat and will probably be sitting on the speedo soon if I brake hard enough. So what are the best pads you used? Feel free to include where you bought them from if online. THX

I just got my hands on some stomp grips and installed the other day.

They are that grippy that I have literally had to change the way I ride going into corners.

I really had no idea just how much I was sliding around until I got the grips, crazy.

Got them from the site - Total: $95.05 USD (postage was $$$$$$)...

I have Stomp Grips. They work great when I'm wearing leathers. Jeans not so much since jeans will slide up your leg with any tank grip. My Saddleman seat works better to keep me from sliding forward, the stock seat has no traction.

Alright, but they have 3 different products, which one do you recommend?
I heard the C3s suck and the Snakeskin ones are much better, it was on here somewhere. So don't really know which one is better.


AbnInf, I will actually always be in riding jeans, is there a certain product that works best with jeans?

I have Stompgrips and love them. I only ride in jeans as well, and they seem to keep me in place really well. Paid 75 on Amazon.

I have to agree with the stompgrip guys, those things are like suction pads when combined with leathers

Definitely not the genuine Honda Racing carbon fiber pads. They look great but the traction is minimal at best.

We have had better feedback with the c3 as they offer the same grip, but are much softer, less weight, and easier on your clothes. stompgrps are good too, but they can damage your leathers/clothes due to the grip.

I just got my Tech Spech "Snakeskins" and love them. I have nothing to compare them to as these are my first tank grips ever but i do love these. Riding just became even more fun, i was sick of getting blue-balled

Got mine on eBay from "OVERSALLERUSA" for $50.99 and fast free shipping 99.7% positive feedback including mine...i just checked he has one more pair left - best price i found. Get it!!!!

I love mine as well. They provide great grip IMO.

^In this review thread, the C3s get bashed the hell out of. Looks like Snakeskin is the way to go since the Stompgrips are a bit too abrasive.

I can't speak for any other type of tank pad but I've had my stompgrips for 4 years & I haven't noticed any damage to my gear as a result, just saying

I have a sample material for both Tech Spechs. Snakeskin feels more like hard rubber and feels like it would last 10 times longer and it looks better, C3 is more like sponge instead of rubber. Doesn't feel very durable but it's very soft and makes me believe it would grip even better then snakeskin.

I hope that doesn't confuse you even more hahaha. Anyway like i said i'm supper happy with my snakeskins

Thanks for the pics ridesc, and thanks for making things more confusing Fly Killer. Looks like it will probably be Snake skins for me.

Do let us know how they feel compared to your Stompgrips.

Installed my Tech Spec (Snake skin) today and they feel great! A little less grip than stompgrip but it doesn't hurt the inside of my leg and knee area like the stompgrip do.
Overall, very satisfied with it.

Stompgrips all the way. You couldn't do much better clamping your legs to the tank. Never had a problem with gear being affected, even through multiple trackdays. Can't remember where I got them, probably ebay.

The other brands might be good too, but I started with Stompgrips, and never experienced any uncomfortableness or damage to my gear. Maybe I'm just happy to not be sliding off the side of my tank so any tertiary effects go unnoticed.

But I ride twisties and tracks a lot, so maybe they are too aggressive for those who don't ride as I do.

Thanks for the feedback guys, looks like you can't go wrong with either Stompgrips or Snakeskins. I guess I'll try both out at some point.
