Ergon GE1 Grips $34.95
Hammer the trail, not your hands.
Developed by Ergon specifically for those who prefer a more traditional grip, the optimized-for-wide-handlebars GE1 is a favorite of all-mountain riders and enduro athletes alike. This is due to a slightly sculpted shape that reduces arm tension, helping to position elbows for an aggressive stance.
The result is excellent control and less fatigue, which translates to longer backcountry rides and faster times in competition. Ergon also employs two rubber compounds, a soft outer and firm inner to not only dampen variable chatter, but to provide a customized grip, too. Completing the goal of a seamless connection with your bike are localized texture zones that are orientated against the direction of rotation of the hand.
The clamps are manufactured from a lightweight, high-quality forged aluminum to secure both the damping-optimized inner core and whole grip. The Ergon GE1 Grips come in four colors: Red, Blue, Grey, and Black.

Five months ago I crushed my right hand....
Five months ago I crushed my right hand. As a consequence I have a missing ring finger. The middle finger was severely damaged but rehab is ongoing so I am confident of reasonable flexion.
My question. Would the GE1 grip be slightly wider than normal grips, particular near the end.
I tend to ride with light hands on the bar and can get reasonable grip using the thumb, first finger and pinky.
I think it might be useful if the grip was wider toward the end. Could you tell me if my assessment is accurate?
You might have better luck with something like their GS or GP line. They widen out nicely for better palm support towards the outside of the grip. I ride them on my XC and rigid frame bikes.
This seems like a thicker grip - does...
This seems like a thicker grip - does anyone know the average diameter of this grip?
These are a thicker grip, but do have a slight taper/increased diameter to them toward the end of the grip. They are definitely a little thicker than most grips, but what sort of grips are you used to, or perhaps looking to replace? I'd be happy to help narrow things down a bit since we do have a rather large selection of grips on the site. You can email me at email@example.com, and I'm in Monday through Friday evenings at Competitive Cyclist
i am also curious to how thick it is. i normally ride the odi ruffian which is pretty thin and fits perfectly since i have hands that fit a small size glove. any idea if it is thicker than the ruffian and the odi rogue is too thick for my hands on the other end of thickness
