Today I will be talking about How to Put Tennis Grips on Scooter Bar. Many people have been asking me about scooter grips that work well. It may sound weird but literally, you can use tennis grips on a scooter bar. I have been using tennis grips on my scooter bars for quite a long time. My dad was a tennis player who gave me some tennis grips and asked me to try them out. I thought it was a pretty good idea. However, as soon as I started to use them I fell in love with the grips. In this article, I walk you through how to put tennis grips on a scooter bar.
Scooter ride is meant to be enjoyable and comfortable. If you slip off the bike while riding, your that dream could turn into a nightmare. Tennis grips can help you get rid of this tension. Just wrap up your scooter bar with tennis grips that soak up sweat nicely, and have fun.
Advantages and disadvantages of using tennis grips of scooter bar
First of all, tennis grips are built in a way that helps tennis players to hold them tight while playing. They are very comfortable to hold. You can adjust the thickness of the layer to achieve your own comfort.
The second and main reason for using tennis grips on scooter bars is their sweat-absorbing capability. Tennis grips could soak up sweat like hell, so basically, you always have dry hands and you will never slip off your scooter.
On top of that, there are special tennis grips for sweaty hands on the market. It’s a huge advantage for riders, especially when it is hot weather and you ride for a long period of time. Now, normal grips are ok but once your hands become sweaty there’s a huge chance of slipping off the bar or having difficulty holding on. Tennis grips, on the other hand, soak up sweat entirely ensuring a comfortable ride.
The only disadvantage is that you have to change grips every few weeks depending on how much you ride. Because at a certain period of time, they become rough and don’t soak up the sweats they used to be. Normally new tennis grips are white in color, but when they get older the color change to darker brown. At that time you need to change the grip.
How many layers should be used?
Well, it depends on your personal preference. Some people love thin bars while others love thick bars. Normally, five layers are enough.
They are thick enough and comfortable. However, over time the layers compress and get thinner than before. To deal with this, use seven or eight layers. This may seem extra thick for a short period of time, but with time it gets compressed into the perfect size.

Now I am going to show you the exact process that I use to put tennis grips on a scooter. When you unwrap the tennis grips you find two ends: the small end and the large end. You should start off with the tiny end. One side of tennis grips is sticky and another side is non-sticky. Put a sticky side on the bar having a non-sticky side outside.
Start wrapping grips from the very end of the bar. With one hand press down one side of the tape and with the other hand wrap the grip around the bar. When you wrap it around always make sure you maintain a tiny tension, not too much or not too little.
When you wrap it around always make sure to overlap half of the previous wrap. The most important thing while wrapping, you have to make sure that the gap between the new layer and the old layer is always the same. So you have an even grip.
Make sure to maintain a decent tension otherwise, you will get air bubbles inside the grip. This would harm your arms. After completing the first wrap does the second wrap mimic the process? Make sure that the gap between the two layers remains the same.
So this is how you put tennis grips on a scooter bar. Add as many layers as you want to repeat the process.
Scooter ride is meant to be enjoyable and comfortable. If you slip off the bike while riding, that dream could turn into a nightmare. Tennis grips can help you get rid of this tension. Just wrap up your scooter bar with tennis grips that soak up sweat nicely, and have fun.
