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.
What community has to say
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.
