TechSpec Ducati Monster 696, 796 & 1100 Tank Grip Pads

TechSpec Ducati Monster 696, 796 & 1100 Tank Grip Pads

Base SKU: 62-1500

Body and weight control is an essential technique with not only aggressive, performance ridding, but also sport and casual touring. By griping the tank with your legs, one will improve the overall control of your body motion, weight position and posture. With an increase in control, you will experience a smoother, less fatigued, and more enjoyable ride. Pre-cut kit includes right and left tank grips and center tank protector.

  • Increase and maintain accurate control of weight and body position
  • Eliminate sliding up and into the tank, especially with passengers
  • Improve riding style
  • Decrease overall body fatigue
  • Improve weight adjustment of body and bike while in motion
  • Protect a highly abusive area of the tank
  • Provide all the benefits of a grip material without shredding leathers
  • Remove and re-use skins numerous times
  • Customize skins to fit your functional needs and artistic style

Available in four versions

The Clear option has a soft and gummy thickness, around .125" of an inch, and includes raised pyramid shapes. Equipped with releasable adhesive. Suggested for the everyday rider.

The High Fusion grip is a durable, sleek, low profile synthetic rubber measuring in at .035" thin. Not to be mistaken as a vinyl or grip tape material. This option has a simple look and low profile feel.

The Snake Skin grip is considered a premier product. Measuring at .125” thin. Squeeze it, grip it, rip it!

The C3 grip material acts more like a pad offering the ultimate in comfort and grip. The .100" thin rubber has a soft gummy feel allowing your knees to sink into the material, almost like memory foam.

Looks Great by Keith F. on 6/16/2014
Looks great on my White Monster 696. Really help with my balance and stability on the bike. With the positioning of the tank and it being a smooth plastic a little extra grip can go a long way. Plus it gives the bike a more unique and aggressive look on the tank itself.

Easy to Apply by Steve H. on 6/16/2014
These pads are easy to apply and perform well at giving your knees something to grip. They are noticeable but do not attract the eye on my stealth black 696.

Slightly Small by Charlie H on 6/16/2014
The pads are slightly small for the 696. I found out that a forum member designed the template for the 696 and sent it to TechSpec for them to develop the 696 pads. Unfortunately, they're designed for shorter riders. I'm over six feet and my knees are touching several inches forward of these pads. However, if I re-position myself, the pads do work wonderfully. I am able to grip the tank and have a better feel over the bike while braking, accelerating, or cornering.

The TechSpec pads are easy to apply and don't seem to wear out very easily. My Alpinestars racing suit knee grips (the same ones used on the Race Replica suits that are worn by Stoner, Pedrosa, and Lorenzo) mark the tank a little, so I can tell that the TechSpec pads are still too small. They offered to redesign it if someone sends them a new template.

Make Riding Less Tiring by Nicholas S. on 6/16/2014
These pads provide a ton of grip (adequate for street riding, at least) and make rides not only more comfortable, but less tiring. Prior to installing these, I was constantly sliding forward, especially under hard braking and/or riding 2-up, so I was continually trying to squeeze the tank to maintain a good position on the bike, which is a great workout for your thighs, but not why I ride.

It could be just me, but it also seems like the matte tanks on the new Monsters are more slippery than other tanks, and the ergos on the new Monsters, although more upright than most bikes, still tend to push the rider forward. For guys, suffice it to say that this is bad news bears for your naughty bits. The TechSpecs not only alleviate all of that, but they also make it much easier to move around on the bike for more technical riding, should you require it.

Installation is super easy. If you know how to apply a sticker, then you're golden; if you don't, then you probably shouldn't be riding a motorcycle. I've had these installed for about a year now and there are no signs of wear (commuting several times a week along with weekend rides) and no signs of them coming unstuck. They're cut to generally follow the lines of the tank, and while they don't look amazing on a non-black bike, they don't really detract from the design either. These are well worth it.

Can Be Easily Removed by Benedict K. on 6/16/2014
The tank grip was easy to apply and it can be removed easily and switch to another bike. After putting it on, you wont ever have to worry about sliding forward.
