    The darling of some Enduro World Series riders. The gripping surfaces have been designed so that when correctly fitted, you automatically adopt the correct angle between your forearms and elbows.

    The GE1 Slim with its thin diameter is one of our top favourites, both visually and functionally. With the rounded screw clamp and the ergonomic grip body it looks like a design object. It grips directly and non-slip, even when wet. The ribbing gives extra grip. Super!

    As usual with the previous models, the slight rotation of the grip surfaces supports an optimal position of the elbows. The rubber compound of the grips has been further improved to provide even more grip.

Ergonomic body position

The grip surface is designed to actively support the more aggressive, wider bar technical trail riding position. By turning 8 degrees to the handlebar axis, the elbows are automatically lifted outwards when gripping! This gives you maximum control at all times, even on the toughest Enduro tracks.

The GE1 Evo brings arms and hands into the correct position.


The GE1 Evo offers a precise gripping control due to its ergonomic shape and texture layout. This allows the rider to conserve energy that is normally wasted with a greater gripping force on a non ergonomic grip. Available in two diameters (Standard and Slim), suitable for different hand sizes and grip size preferences.

The GE1 Evo is available in the sizes Standard and Small.

Maximum grip

The increase of gripping control is due to the specific texture layout and ergonomic shaping. Having the texture go against the gripping force prevents hand rotation and enhances control for both comfort and performance.

Optimal pressure distribution

The GE1 features an inboard, soft rubber, tear-drop shaping for the thumb area. The grip then flares out towards the oute edge to allow for more pressure distribution. The texture extends to the end of the grip and protects the pressure-sensitive ulnar nerve from being compressed. A better distribution of pressure in this area aids in preventing common nerve issues such as tingling, discomfort and numbness.

GE1 Evo relieves ulnar nerve and prevents pain.

Inner Core Construction

The grip wall varies in thickness within the inner core. This provides a specific delivery of damping of vibrations in common highly sensitive zones. The GE1 Evo offers additional damping comfort in the far outer end with the fully integrated grip end. This creates a soft, cushioned grip edge.

GE1 Evo with recesses on the inner core, for more comfort.
