We founded TOGS, LLC to bring the Thumb Over Grip System (TOGS) product to market. Established in 2014, we are located in the Salt Lake valley at the foothills of the Wasatch mountains.
Simply, we were envious of the brake hoods on road bikes which are comfortable and efficient. The only real option for flat bar bikes seemed to be bar-ends, which just don’t feel all that great, are kinda heavy and have safety issues (bar-ends can hook foliage & people and they provide no access to shifters and brakes). So, we researched the thumb-over grip position that many pros use as an alternate hand position, and improved on it with the Thumb Over Grip System (TOGS) innovation. TOGS provide the comfortable and efficient hand position we were looking for, while supplying superior bike control, safety, and climbing leverage all in a minimal lightweight product.
