For the long haul.

Ergon counts its GS series grips as its premium endurance race model. This isn't a stretch considering it's been ridden to multiple world and national championships. With a palatable price, the GS1 has a relatively simple design, the key features of which are two internal supports built into the body of the grip that promote rebound and better control during rides when hand fatigue becomes a serious concern.

The cold-forged, slender aluminum grip has a slight wing profile and is coated in Direct Control rubber that works to provide grip as well as dampen some trail chatter. We appreciate that the GS1 is also offered in two sizes to account for different hand breadths, ensuring serious racers get the ideal size when riding distances that demand precision fit. Whether you're looking for a comfortable XC racing grip or are riding marathon races, the GS1 is a valuable option to have at the ready before a ride.

A very different grip.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am new to mountain biking, but not to cycling. I decided to give these grips a try on my new hardtail XC bike, and I am glad I did. They took a few tries to get them in a good position and the result is a super comfortable grip. I find I can ride a long time with minimal hand discomfort from the pounding on rough trails. A big improvement over the stock grips.
I found the grip positioned with the pinch slot being nearly parallel [level] to the ground worked best.

Makes riding more comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had nerve issues and these grips have fixed that. They are great for long rides and rides of any distance if other grips give you discomfort. If you suffer from hand discomfort or nerve issues with standard grips, I highly recommend giving these a try. It can take a little bit to get the correct angle but don't be afraid to adjust them initially.

Grips of choice!

    Love these grips! Tried round grips again after wearing a pair of these out and did not last long before going right back to these. The palm support and solid grip of Ergons make the difference for aggressive trail riding and longer rides.

    Ergon grips - really improved my riding

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I upgraded to some Ergons (maybe the GP-1s?) a few seasons ago to help with some thumb pain caused by old skiing wreck. These grips subtly change your posture to direct the weight outward, which really helps remove and balance pressure.

    Mine have been really durable, clipped some trees and survived a few crashes. The aluminum really helps hold them up, and the rubber hasnt dried out at all.

    All in all, it has been a good upgrade that didnt require a ton of investment, I'd recommend them to anyone

    Ergon grips - really improved my riding

    Thanks for the review Ryan! Great to get this feedback out to the community.

    Helps with a neutral wrist

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It doesn't take too many miles off road for my hands to start falling asleep. I've optimized my cockpit proportions and used every bar out there (Jones loop are the best) but the single best change is ergon grips. When properly positioned, the flared grip promotes my wrist to a neutral position. Grip, comfort and handling are still on par with the cylinder grips I'm used to (Lizard Skins, ODI, ESI etc.). Install is breezy. Get some.
