Definition: Grips

Grips: Grips are the leather straps that gymnasts wear to help keep a better grip on the uneven bars, high bar, parallel bars or rings. The purpose of grips is to help maintain a firm grip on the equipment and to help minimize the occurrence of rips. Uneven bar grips have 2 finger holes and a medium size dowel that is smaller than on grips for rings, but larger than the dowel for high bar. High bar grips are typically 3 finger with a small dowel. Ring grips are 2 finger, long and have a large dowel. Parallel bar grips exist, but are rarely used.
