The COLOR is purple with white ends. They are made or a rubber-like material like most other BMX grips. Each grip is 4 1/2" long. They fit handlebars that are 7/8" diameter which is the standard diameter. All of the grips that you see in stores are made for 7/8" diameter handlebars because almost all bicycles have this diameter handlebar.

>> How to put on grips and how to take them off:
Grips that are made of rubber or a rubber-like material will not slide on the handlebar easily. Put some water on the handlebar and inside the grips to make them slide on easily. Work quickly before the water dries.
When the water dries, it may be impossible to get the grips off unless you put some water in the grip between the grip and the handlebar. If you want to take the grips off, try to pull or push the grip off - it will probably be easier to push the grip off than to pull it off. To push the grip off, get a large adjustable wrench, open the jaws of the wrench so the handlebar will barely go between the jaws, then push the grip off with the wrench. If you cannot get the grip off by pushing or pulling, you will need to put some water in the grip so it will slide off. If the grip is made of rubber, it will stretch enough for you to put a screwdriver or a spoon handle inside the grip between the grip and the handlebar, then pour some water in the opening that you made. Then, move the screwdriver or spoon handle all around the inside of the grip to get the water everywhere. If you use a screwdriver, be careful to not stick the screwdriver through the grip. Then, try to pull the grip off. If it won't come off, try pushing the grip off. If it still won't come off, you probable did not get the water everywhere under the grip.
You could use soapy water to make the grip slide easier. When you want to put the grip back on the handlebar, wash the soap out and put plain water on it. You don't want soap in the grips when you put the grips back on the handlebar because the grips might come off while you are riding. Many people do use detergent to make the grips slide on easier, but I don't know which kind of detergent is less likely to cause the grips to come off while you are riding; so, for safety, I do not recommend using soap or detergent. Some people use hair spray.
