Are silicone grips good?
Small, unpleasant vibrations are almost completely soaked up by the silicone foam and this results in far less arm pump than you’d get with regular grips.

Are mountain bike grips standard?
Mountain bike bars generally had 1” (25.4mm) clamp diameter and 7/8” (22.2mm) grip sections. Those two grip diameters remain unchanged, even though the clamp diameter is pretty universal now at 1-1/4” (31.8mm) between road and MTB bars.
