WHY?

The Counterpunch makes clipping trees less problematic by protecting the 5th digit and metacarpal from impact, greatly reducing the chance of a broken bone. The curved surface slides rather than grabs, making it less likely the bar will hang up and throw the rider. As soon as testing began, several riders reported improved control, and declared it the top reason to run them, which is something that typical MTB handguards don't offer. 

WATCH THE COUNTERPUNCH STRIKING A TREE

Not just a slight clip, but a full on tree strike, on chunky bark The Counterpunch slides, not grabs. Saves a crash, saves your hand and maybe saves your season. People often ask why they don’t curve more over your pinky. It’s because they don’t need to; less is more.

 

HAND POSITION

Like to run the meat of your palm off the end of the bar? You know it puts you more at risk but control is more important than safety, right? The Counterpunch still allows you to do this comfortably and safely, even if you really like to hang it out. 

 

LOAMLAB GRIP

By making the rubber eccentric to the bar, and strategically removing areas of the inner core, the LoamLab grip is a thin (29mm) lock-on with the comfort of a thick slide-on. This makes the top of the grip level from end to end, without a pressure point normally found on thin concentric grips. The cutaway core at the thumb creates a thicker flexible pad that absorbs vibration for better traction with less gripping force, and the uniform surface there makes gloveless riding comfortable. The LoamLab grip is also available in a Single Clamp version if the Counterpunch is not your style.

 

COMPATIBILITY

Mates perfectly with the LoamLab dual clamp grip. Also compatible with ODI dual clamp grips by replacing the outer lock ring with the Counterpunch. Or simply install it on the end of the bar with the open-end grip of your choice.  

Counterpunch without grips: 68g per pair 
Counterpunch with grips: 164g per pair

The Counterpunch™ has US and International Patents Pending

Dream come true

For a reason I can not argue, I every time needed to have my hands on both end of the handlebar feeling the edge. Thanks to Liam bar ends, I can now have a supportive accessory that help me feeling even better on my bike

Counterpunch

They work well. I bounced off a rock yesterday and little finger is all good - not even a scratch. I fiddle with them a bit on the uphill but don’t really notice them when headed down. Thank.

Great protection

I love the size of the Counterpunch as well as the build quality. Items were shipped out in a timely manner and they look great. They already did their job by saving my knuckle from a tree at high speed. Thanks!
