    Grips extremely securely and with little effort. Their soft rubber mixture gives the palm and fingers a lot of grip in combination with the profile. An extra portion of rubber on the upper side absorbs shocks very effectively without making the grip spongy.

    Trotz großer Hände vertraute ich bisher lieber auf dünne Griffe. Obwohl ich immer wieder mit tauben Fingern zu kämpfen hatte, hatte ich ein gutes Gefühl dabei. Doch dicker scheint in diesem Fall besser zu sein. Die tauben Finger sind mit den GA2 Fat passé.

    […] The thicker rubber material provides increased damping, and the wider circumference noticeably reduces hand fatigue […] This creates an excellent connection to the bike even for large hands. I definitely mount these grips on my bike at home!

Gripping ease

Ergon matches the demands of riders for more grip in hand for their GA series. The GA2 Fat not only benefits riders with larger hands, it’s also a great grip for those who prefer more grip in hand. All of the benefits of the GA2 are achieved with the added benefits of a larger diameter and a greater ability to dampen vibrations. This allows the rider to lessen their gripping forces.

Nerve relief

When mountain biking, a good portion of the rider’s pressure rests on the handlebars. Over time this can compress nerves within the hand and cause discomfort, pain or numbness. The design of the GA2 allows the rider to rest their hand in a wider position, counteracting the common discomforts of a tight, narrow grip.

Excellent grip

The priorities of high quality materials is one of Ergon’s core values. The soft, durable and pure German rubber with specific texture layout offers a great deal of comfort and control on the bike. With an internal clamp, more space is available for a wider grip. The GA2 provides an ergonomic texture layout and vibration damping while reducing gripping strain.
