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.

  • Rubber grip with aluminum clamp
  • Localized texture zones
  • Dual-layer construction
  • Damping-optimized inner core
  • Optimized for wide handlebars

Best of All Worlds

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Security of a lock-on grip, bar feel of a traditional round grip, subtle support benefits and improved grip from ergonomic profile. I've been using these for several seasons now and I don't see any reason to ride anything else.

Ergonomic grips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

At first I was a bit unsure of these grips, being an asymmetrical shape and just never having used Ergon grips before. It took some playing around to find the orientation that offered the best comfort for my riding position. There are markings on the grips themselves that show you which direction they need to face, and what adjustment range you have. The teardrop shape really is quite comfortable even on longer rides, and the grips seem to last a long time. I'm impressed, would definitely buy again.

Work Well

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used these to replace some original grips. Installation and set up isn't difficult and so far, no hand numbness or fatigue after the first few uses. Happy with my choice.

Connected but comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got these to replace the OEM grips on my Yeti, and sincerely do not regret it. They provide a much more natural shape and remove some of the more annoying trail chatter from your bones. Seem to be very durable, all while being super stylish. Which is obviously important.

Subtle Comfort

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Ergon GE1 grips may be the most comfortabe grips I have used on mountain bikes. They have a teardrp-shaped cross-section under the pointer and middle fingers, and flare out to a larger round diameter under the ring and pinky fingers. They put softer grip compounds in just the right places. the single alloy collar keeps them locked in place, without using any hard material outboard. thest grips are comfortable even if you ride at the very outside of the bar. the GE1 grips will be a great upgrade for any Mountain bike.

Favorite grips for my Bronson

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been running the Ergon ge1 grips for a few years now and really like their ergonomic shape and slightly larger feel compared to other, more basic lock-on grips. Durability has been superb and the single Allen bolt lock on has never given me trouble on my carbon bars. If you're looking for a nice, ergonomic grip that works well for everything from XC to freeride mountain biking, I highly recommend the Ergon GE1 Grips.

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great grips. I just installed them and have ridden once. They felt very comfy on my hands. My hands have not fallen asleep at all since I purchased these.

Comfy and secure

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've taken these on a few rides and like them so far. The grips haven't slipped at all yet despite having only one clamp on each grip.

My New Favorite

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Strangely enough this year, I started having issues with hand numbness this spring when on longer seated rides (long climbs). I switched from the Odi Ruffian lock ons to this grip and have not looked back. They're subtle in the ways they're different, but my hands are more comfortable, the numbness has gone away, and they're just as good when it comes to how well they grip. These things are the bomb.

How wide are the grips? Not the thickness, but the distance from one end to another. For instance, the Odi grips are all 130mm wide.

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?

Best Answer

Hi Henry,

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, 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
