Spank

Tugg Job Grip

The Tugg Job grip was one or the more interesting products at Spank’s booth because of their smell. Spank has made each grip scented in a different flavor like Apple Red, Grape Purple, and Vanilla White (think Mr. Zogs surf wax). The grip is 145mm long with 50mm flange. The grip area extends to the end of grip for more room while riding. It’s made out of Kryton rubber in a thinner thickness for those that like slim grips. The end caps secure the grip on the end for protection.
