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.
Material Diversity for Maximum Demand
Highest Quality Standards—also available in BioKork.
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.
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.
All parts of the grip are continuously produced with an ecological theme. 40% of the inner plastic core is preduced with natural grass fibers.
Function and Sustainability
The clamp is made of 100% recyclable aluminum.
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.
