Ergon Grips GP1
Sorry Currently Sold Out
The original wing grip for touring and fitness cycling. Our GP Series of grips has been the worldwide benchmark in winged grips for more than a decade and rise to the top of grip testing editorials. Leading the industry in performance, materials and manufacturing to prevent numb fingers and discomfort in your hands and forearms.
When riding, your hands support a lot of your upper body weight on the handlebars, placing high pressure on a relatively small grip area. In many cases this pinches the extremely sensitive ulnar nerve that runs near the base of the palm near the pinky and close to the skin’s surface – often causing numbness. The wing grip increases the hand’s supporting area by distributing pressure over a wider surface and thereby preventing discomfort.
If your wrist is bent too much for too long, nerves, tendons and blood vessels are compressed. The result is the carpal tunnel channel is constricted, which could damage the median nerve. Long rides and fatigue make it even harder for the rider to maintain a correct and healthy posture. The wing design of our GP grips gives the hand more support and automatically puts the wrist into a more ergonomic position, preventing numbness, tingling and pain.
