Product Description

The Ergon GP1 grip is a great starting point for an exploration of Ergon's wares. The grip has two kinds of rubber, a harder rubber on the outside and a soft, patterned and textured Kraton rubber pad that both grips the hand or glove and offers great support. Each grip is held in place by a forged aluminum alloy clamp set by an Allen key. By comparison, the GP1 is a bit more forgiving than the race-oriented GX1. So those looking for the most comfort, look no further. Since the grip is a unique shape, the wing shaped support is right where some glove makers are putting extra padding these days and provides more support for the palm of the hand. It's great that the clamp is what holds it in place. This way, the grip can be slid on and the clamp left loose so a rider can get a feel for where the ideal position is. Most likely, people will have it at level or slightly below level, but having a clamp so the grip can be set and reset until the position is dialed is a sweet convenience. Those who do drop-offs or spend lots of time with their butt behind their saddle might want the grips lower still. The Ergon GP1 grip comes in six versions -- standard, SRAM, and Nexus/Rohloff widths in small and large. The size does not refer to the length but the thickness of the grip. The people at Ergon tell us that macho types assume they should have large unless otherwise indicated, so consider this a warning. Ergon has found that most people, except those who have huge mitts, go with the small. 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 grip is 54mm at its widest (measured front to back). The GP1 Standard small and large are both 140mm. The GP1 SRAM small and large are both 94. 5mm long. The Nexus/ Rohloff set has a full length left side grip and the right grip is 96. 5mm long to accommodate the twist shifter. The clamp tightens via a 4mm Allen k...

Very easy to install.

The way your hand fits around the grip is different, and while very comfortable, it does need to be positioned to distribute the pressure properly.

No more pain in my hands in long rides.

The description for the Ergon GP1 Performance Grips in this listing provides a choice of small or large sizes. The problem is that there are 6 choices, of which only two choices are allowed. The six choices are the permutations of
Grips for small hands
Grips for large hands
Grips for bicycles that do not have shifters next to the grips (i.e. 132 mm long grips)
Grips for bicycles that have shifters on both the left and right sides (i.e. 94 mm grips)
Grips for bicycles that have a shifter on one side, and thus need a mixed set of long and short grips.

The selection provided in this product listing is for either
132 mm large grips on both hands, or
132 mm small grips on both hands

NOTE 1: see my instructions for removing old grips (without destroying them) at the end of this message.

Note 2: SPECIFICATIONS (not given here by Amazon as of this writing): these are "Ergon GP1 Grips" (the box says "GP1-S" for small, "GP1-L" for large, but for some reason it's called by Amazon as I write this: "Ergon Grip P-1Mg Series Bicycle Handle Bar Grips"). Both the left and the right grip "require a handlebar with 22.2 mm diameter in the grip area and uninterrupted bar space of 132 mm each side..." - in other words they're each 132 mm long and they fit standard handlebars. The clamp that tightens each grip to the handlebars requires a 4 mm Allen wrench. Since they need to be rotated after they're on to adjust them to the desired angle, they don't slide on and self-lock in place like most other grips. Personally, I also needed a 5 mm Allen wrench to loosen and slide the shift/brake units out of the way and then to tighten back against the installed grips, but that will vary from bike to bike.

I bought the small size, after seeing a recommendation to do that elsewhere by a male expert who has a 9" handspan (mine's [male] 8 1/2"). I'm glad I did: I think the large would have been too wide on the outside section and my hands would be too stretched out. The small size allows me to vary from adsorbing most of the force with the ball of my hand on the wide, outside part or sliding my hand in and gripping the circular part with the thumb, index and middle fingers: and varying your hand position greatly reduces numbness.

This section is my 2013 update to the original review:

I still love these grips! After two years, and getting used to riding a bike again after decades off, now my hands NEVER get numb, whether I'm riding 5 miles or 25 miles.

I have not yet bought these grips because of the price. However, I'd like to offer some information gleaned from the ergon-bike.com website that will hopefully clear up the confusion over grip length presented by the Amazon product descriptions and reviews.

The models and lengths of the three GP1 grip sets are:

Standard - Left: 132mm, Right: 132mm (Amazon id: P1)
Rohloff®/Nexus® - Left: 132mm, Right: 96.5mm (Amazon id: for Nexus/Rohloff)
GripShift® - Left: 96.5mm, Right: 96.5mm (Amazon id: P1WG)

The standard 123mm grips would be too long for my bike, since the shifter/brake units create interference. There is discussion in the "GP1" reviews about cutting that model shorter or sliding the shifters in; neither an appealing idea to me. Thus, the P1WG model is what I would need.

I have wrist problems and big hands. On top of that I've had surgery on both my lower back and neck. So I've had to set my bike up to allow me to sit more upright in the saddle. These grips are wonderful because they actually transfer weight from my wrist joints to my palms and they allow me to hang on while keeping my wrists relatively straight rather than bent. I find that they also offer great grip even when my hands are sweaty (I'm not a big fan of riding with gloves during the Summer). Now about big hands: I find that with regular grips I feel like I'm hanging onto a broomstick. With these, my hands wrap around comfortably and my fingers don't touch my palm the way they do with regular round grips. I also had no trouble positioning brake and shift levers with these grips. Every bike I ever own from now on will be equipped with these grips. If you don't have big hands, I would see how these grips could be difficult to grasp. I believe they offer these in a smaller size.

Honestly...these are the best grips I have ever used. Riding a Gary Fisher 29er and after putting these on I feel so connected to the bike. It like there is a level of control and comfort that wasnt there before. There is no going back. Just ordered a second pair for the other bike. Buy this grip with confidence. (I don't sell or work in bike industry. I just ride.)

I have been cycling for over 15 years, and always used to get pain in my wrists and numbness in my fingers. Not knowing there was anything that I could do about it, I rode in pain. Not anymore! After installing these grips, I went for a ride to test them out. Immediately I knew that I had made a wise choice in purchasing them. These grips are fantastic, and anyone would benefit from using them. Not only do they provide a pain-free ride (wrists and hands), but they also give me much beter control of my bike. Even if you are a weigh-weenie - GET THESE GRIPS!

Also, unlike regular grips, the Ergons are easy to install. The 4mm alan key adjustment screw means that you can get the position just right and it will stay that way.
