Description

Stay fresh.

Ergon's GS2 Leichtbau Grip has a composite three-finger bar end that provides additional hand positions and control when climbing out of the saddle. The grip shape is in-between the classic GP and GX series, offering a shape that works to reduce pressure on your Ulnar nerves and to ease wrist strain while retaining the lightweight characteristic of the GX1.

We feel like this happy medium will quickly become a favorite for anyone looking to increase their hand comfort on their mountain bike. The wing shaped support is exactly where many glove makers are stitching on extra padding these days, and it provides more support for your hand. You'll perceive less pressure on your palm because of the increased surface area, and the soft kraton rubber gives just enough and allows supreme grip, even with sweat soaked gloves. You'll see a textured rubber insert on the top of the grips. Ergon uses a softer rubber compound here to help dissipate vibration and jolts on the trail.

The angle of the grip and the bar end is important and worth the time to find the position that works best for you. Once you dial it in, the clamp at the end of the grip should be tightened to a maximum of 5 Nm in order to avoid handlebar damage once you find the right angle. Ergon has found that most people, except those who have huge mitts, go with the small size. The smaller diameter is lighter, a bit stiffer, and easy to grab. Those with big hands and those who spend long, long days in the saddle might want to lean towards large.

The Ergon GS2 Leichtbau Grip is available in Black, Team Edition Green, and White and comes in two sizes -- Small and Large. The GS2 is 132mm wide, including the clamp assembly; and it's 54mm front to back at the wing. The set comes with bar plugs and installation instructions.

Please note: when mounting Ergon grips with integrated bar ends to carbon fiber handlebars, it is necessary to confirm that the handlebars are both rated for use with bar ends and are able to accommodate 6-8 NM of clamping force. Most carbon bars are not designed for use with bar ends, which can result in structural failure if applied.

  • Built-in ergonomically-shaped climbing bars give you more power on the climb with minimal weight addition
  • Two sizes for different hand sizes
  • Bar end doubles as the clamp and allows separate angle adjustments for grip and bar end
  • Leichtbau direct control rubber reduces weight significantly

not my type

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i rode with these for a few rides and unfortunately they hurt my hands. They were just a little to wide for my liking but I'm probably an exception to the rule.

I love these grips. Had the stock grips and within an hour my hands would be sore, no more. I also am old so I'm used to bar ends, don't need them as much with the wider bars of todays moutain bikes but I still like having the option.
