- Tested back-friendly
- No more numb fingers
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.
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.
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.
The material used in Ergon grips meets the highest quality purity standards, is TÜV-certified, durable and absolutely unique in the world of cycling grips. Developed without filler and using medical grade white oil as the only plasticizer. The UV-resistant rubber compound has been developed and is manufactured exclusively for Ergon in Germany. Ergonomics, product design and engineering – all Made in Germany.
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.
Minimum friction – maximum comfort: Gripping confidence is enhanced with Ergon’s super soft, UV resistant, durable compound and specific texture patterns. Additionally, your riding enjoyment is elevated with a noticeable pleasing to the touch feel.
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.
“Generous bar end provides multiple additional grip positions.”
