The original

The GP1 revolutionized the bicycle grip.

The original ergonomic grip!

Continously refined over the last few years, the GP1 is the worldwide standard in ergonomic function, materials, and quality. Since 2015 the GP1 contains a new internal structure. The three-part internal support platform allows for additional comfort through varying wall thicknesses. Premium features are echoed throughout the model with the use of the purest quality German rubber compounds and forged aluminium clamps.

The ergonomic concept

Numb fingers, painful hands, or forearm discomfort—common problems that many riders experience. Ergon grips solve these issues and correct the root of the problems.

Improved Pressure Distribution

The pressure point area where the small finger meets the palm often leads to a cross-compression of the Ulnar Nerve. Nerve damage becomes apparent in form of numbness in the little finger and the outer area of the ring finger. In the case of prolonged riding, this can also lead to a limited movement of the entire hand. The answer is precise support in the area of the ball of the thumb and to distribute hand pressure wide on the handlebar.

Hand Position Adjustments

Substantial bending of the wrist can cause the nerves to become pinched or inflammed, eventually leading to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is characterized by a burning pain in the hand or forearm. It can also cause sensory disturbances. The corrected hand position relieves pressure on the nerve and eliminates pain and discomfort. Preventing possible injuries to the wrist.

Technology makes the difference

The GP Series has been continuously updated and further developed since its introduction.

Detailed Ergonomics and Engineering:
  1. Anti-Slip, Soft Rubber Inserts, Improved Grip.
  2. Aluminum and Composite Clamping System. Suitable for Carbon Fiber bars.
  3. Plastic Internal Skeleton Supports the Wrist, while the Soft-Rubber Ensures Sufficient Damping.
  4. Medical Grade, Durable Rubber Compound, Made in Germany
  5. Optimized Pressure Distribution. Prevents Numbness and Aching.
  6. Smooth Texture Prevents Thumb Friction.

Material Diversity for Maximum Demand

Highest Quality Standards—also available in BioKork and BioLeder.

Grip-Compound

Made in Germany

Ergon‘s Product Development Team is constantly performing extensive material tests, which far exceed the bike industry‘s quality standards. Over the last few years Ergon has developed and tested more than 50 different grip rubber compounds.

Our new grip material, developed and made in Germany, complies with the highest purity standards and is characterized by its extremely high UV-stability properties. In the bicycle industry, these are unique characteristics on a global scale.

BioKork

Irresistible Feedback

Cork is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-allergic, and therefore especially skin-friendly. It has very good damping properties and due to the low density is very lightweight.

The grip body consists of 40% cork. It comes from biologically certified cork farms in Portugal which follow strict ecological guidelines.

BioLeder

The best of two worlds

The leather from Bavaria, Germany is certified, naturally tanned, untreated, open-pore, and retains its natural characteristics. The production is innovative, stitchless, and was developed in collaboration with London shoe designer, Quoc Pham.

Gripbody

Consistently Ecological

All parts of the grip are continuously produced with an ecological theme. 40% of the inner plastic core is preduced with natural grass fibers.

Aluminium

Function and Sustainability

The clamp is made of 100% recyclable aluminum.

Adapted grips
for different requirements

The GP grip series provides the right grip configuration for every type of shifting system and every hand size. Since hand sizes vary from person to person, the GP grips are offered in two sizes, Small and Large.
