These grip wraps have been treated to protect it from the harshness of the external world. A little bit of care is all it needs to give years of service. Here's a few tips to pamper it...
Keep it clean: Always touch these wraps with clean hands/gloves. If you are using an old pair of cloves, clean them thoroughly before the first time.
Protection from water: The water repellant treatment will protect these grips to a good degree. Riding in the rain is safe, however please cover the grips if exposed to heavy water flow like washing your bike. It's advisable to use one layer of water resistant coat after the product has been in a few rains or at least once every 6 months.
Cleaning the product: Use a cotton cloth for cleaning. You may want to use a mild leather cleaner from time to time.
