The original ergonomic grip!
Continously refined over the last few years, the GP1 is the worldwide standard in ergonomic function, materials, and quality. Since 2015 the GP1 contains a new internal structure. The three-part internal support platform allows for additional comfort through varying wall thicknesses. Premium features are echoed throughout the model with the use of the purest quality German rubber compounds and forged aluminium clamps.
The ergonomic concept
Numb fingers, painful hands, or forearm discomfort—common problems that many riders experience. Ergon grips solve these issues and correct the root of the problems.
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.
