GP1 BioLeder black
€ 89,95(With VAT**)
The highlight of our Performance Comfort series features the highest quality materials. The GP1 BioLeder uses naturally tanned leather from the Allgäu region with untreated, open-pored surface and individual natural characteristics.
The naturally tanned Allgäuer leather for the GP1 is processed with gentle care. This is done using a new type of process that Ergon developed in cooperation with the renowned London leather manufacturer Quoc Pham, named after its founder.
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.
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.
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.
“Hand flatterer. The large contact surface of the handle supports a straight position of the wrist and minimizes punctual pressure.”
