These traction pads work as intended. I chose the clear ones to show off my Repsol graphics underneath them. Because they are clear, any air bubbles can be easily seen, so I took extra time pressing out and down a little at a time. Unfortunately, because the material is pliable & stretchy, it ended longer from their original size. I tried too hard. Next time I won't press as hard. I see why others prefer the black ones. Still, they look great and grip extremely well.
