Ergonomie

Nerve relief

When riding, your hands support a lot of your upper body weight on the handlebars, placing high pressure on a relatively small grip area. In many cases this pinches the extremely sensitive ulnar nerve that runs near the base of the palm near the pinky and close to the skin’s surface – often causing numbness. The wing grip increases the hand’s supporting area by distributing pressure over a wider surface and thereby preventing discomfort.

Durch starke punktuelle Belastung wird der Ulnarnerv abgeklemmt. Der Flügel schützt den Ulnarnerv und beugt somit Taubheitsgefühlen in den Fingern vor.

Ergonomic solution

If your wrist is bent too much for too long, nerves, tendons and blood vessels are compressed. The result is the carpal tunnel channel is constricted, which could damage the median nerve. Long rides and fatigue make it even harder for the rider to maintain a correct and healthy posture. The wing design of our GP grips gives the hand more support and automatically puts the wrist into a more ergonomic position, preventing numbness, tingling and pain.

If the wrist is bent too much, the carpal tunnel is jammed. The solution is provided by the wing grip: it optimally aligns the wrist and thus stretches the carpal tunnel.

Two sizes – for more control

In order to help you maintain perfect control over your bike, your hands should not completely envelop the grip, which is why Ergon offers many grips in two size diameters – Small and Large. The difference refers to the grip width (hand size), meaning a larger hand will have a more positive fit on a thicker grip, while a smaller hand is better fit to a smaller grip. For hand/glove sizes 6.5 to 8.5 we recommend Small, for 8.5 to 10.5 Large usually is better.

The GP5 is offered in Small and Large. For hand (glove) sizes 6.5 – 8.5 we recommend the size Small, for 8.5 – 10.5 the size Large.

Tested back-friendly: Action for healthy backs

Back pain is the number 1 widespread condition. In particular, when this happens during cycling, the joy of riding is diminished. In a lengthy testing procedures by an interdisciplinary panel of experts consisting of doctors, orthopedists and physiotherapists, the back-friendly effect of the GP5 grip has now been officially confirmed.

Playing it safe

Locked down for safety

The GP Series clamping system is extremely secure and easy to mount. Each grip is tightened with only one bolt to reliably secure its position and to prevent twisting. Another important safety feature is that Ergon’s aluminum clamps are cold forged and not extruded – resulting in a much stronger structure. GP grip versions featuring lightweight barends – made of glass-fiber-composite and with grippy rubber inlays – deliver additional hand positions for more comfort.

Good riding feeling for more driving fun.

Specific to twist shifters

Fits every type of shifting system

GP Series grips are also available in different versions that are compatible with various types of twist shifters. With standard trigger shifters, both grips have the same length on both sides. The versions for Gripshift® and Dual-Twist shifters have two short grips, while Rohloff@, Nexus® mand Singe-Twist shifters require the right-side grip to be shorter to accommodate the shifting mechanism.

The GP5 is available for various shifting systems: Standard trigger shifters, Gripshift® or Dual Twist Shift twist shifters, Rohloff®, Nexus® and Single Twist Shift.
