The Surpassme Motorcycle is made out of TPR rubber, also known as thermoplastic rubber, which has the combined properties of both rubber and plastic, making it lightweight, and durable like plastic, while it also is a good electrical conductor, flexible, resistant to scratches, and grips well like rubber. With the combined properties, this is indeed a good material for making a motorcycle grip.
Although TPR Rubber can be a bit sticky and slimy to the touch if exposed to heat for too long, and often becomes brittle if exposed to cold temperatures, to prevent this, the manufacturer must make a perfect formulation to prevent all these, and we will take a look at these properties throughout every product listed here, as TPR rubber is very common with motorcycle grips.
Going back to the Surpassme Motorcycle Grips, these grips provide a 22mm or 7/8” left handlebar grip and a 24mm or 1” right handlebar grip, and this grip has a quilted like pattern that resembles a diamond-shaped pattern, and together with the TPR Rubber material, this is soft to the touch and has a good resistance against violent vibrations, and also has good resistance against moisture.

The Biltwell Motorcycle Grips Torker is a motorcycle grip made out of TPV or thermoplastic vulcanizate. TPV is very close to thermoplastic rubber with the only difference are found in their base materials.
Although this has a similar design to the Surpassme Motorcycle grips, this has a much thicker and bulkier profile allowing it to be gripped more comfortably especially if you have your gloves on. The motorcycle grips have a snug and tight fit so you may need some lubrication when installing this one to make things a bit easier
The main difference between the Biltwell Motorcycle grips and the Surpassme motorcycle grips, is that although the two looks similar, the Biltwell Motorcycle grips does not have a flange allowing for a more streamlined, sleeker look, that also gave off a nostalgic vintage vibe, and as a recommendation, this motorcycle grips are best fitted with Harley Davidson Motorcycles.
The design should come with performance, and while the design is fitted for someone who has a vintage taste, the performance of this motorcycle grips are amazing, as it will resist vibration well, with the TPV material, vibrations are minimized, and since this is thicker than the Surpassme Motorcycle grips, this should cushion your hands more.

This also has a chunky and slightly thicker feel to it that certainly gives confidence for most riders.
In terms of performance, ODI made this with their proprietary grip compounds with their formulation, so we are not that sure on what this is made of, but in terms of grip, your hands are unlikely to slip in or out because of the pattern, this will also cushion well, and despite its design pattern, it is soft enough, as ODI had a goal to improve the ergonomics and vibration dampening on this one, surely making it a bit soft will do just that.
