Default Avon Grips?

Avon Velvet Air or Avon Air Cushion Grips?

Who has either one and which one do you recommend?

Thanks Dan

I have these and LOVE the heated aspect of them.

I personally think the Kuryakyn (VIC) Comfort grips fit my hands better, but wanted the heaters and swapped them out after only a month. Don't regret the swap at all 14k miles later. They still look like new
Don't have any experience between the two listed, sorry

PS, I had a small issue with a grip and Avon responded VERY fast and friendly with replacement.

So it looks like you have the Air Cushion ones(serrated texture),but heated...
Are they alot bigger (fatter) than the stock ones?

The Vic/Kury are bigger than the Avon. I have large hands (xl/2xl glove size) and that is why I liked the bigger ISO Better. The Avons are right in the middle, and I think they would be comfortable for a large range is hand sizes

I have the Avon MT air spikes, love'em. I couldn't stand the stock grips, the shape of them drove me nuts...

I have the spike grips, heated, & comfort wise love them. The only down side is they don't put out as much heat as stock Ma Vic grips. I do like the 4 position reastat though. I have plenty of heat until it gets down near freezing. After 2 yrs & 28,000 miles, the left grip is starting to show some wear but I would definitely go Avon again!

Avon will re-grip them for only $10, just check there website. One of the other reasons to go with the Avon grips...
