Product Description

The GP1 series of grips offer maximum comfort and the best possible pressure distribution. They are specially cut for a small to middle sized hand (Size S: 6.5 / 8.5 - particularly good for female hands), as well as for middle to larger sized hands (Size L: 8.5 – 10.5). They feature a forged alu clamp for fast and secure installation. The support platform is individually incrementally adjustable for the correct hand angle by simply turning the grip.

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 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.)

My handles feel sticky all the time. They shed rubber particles when I use them. They are prematurely wearing out. I would not recommend them due to the rubber composite they use.

Update: I received an email from the company and Jeff there said they are aware that exposure of the handle-grips to sunlight will cause them to become tacky.

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.

I was looking for a grip that would actually relieve pressure on my palm and wrist during mountain biking. The other reviews favorably supported the Ergon grips as well as my local bike shop. I thought that I might have needed several rides to get accustomed to these grips. Was I wrong! With each mile, my hands and wrists went completely numb, suffered severe fatigue, and made me want to stop biking. I must emphasize that I am a physician specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. I am highly trained in diagnosing and treating nerve entrapment problems as well as establishing proper ergodynamics for professional activities at work as well as in sports (i.e. cycling). These makers of these grips might purport that they distribute weight evenly along a larger portion of the palm. Regardless of the scientific and technical claims behind the manufacturing and design of these grips, I found that they apply very hard and uncomfortable pressure to the areas of the palm and wrist that actually need relief. Everything about these grips is completely wrong! There is no comfortable hand position while going uphill, downhill, or on flat level. The size of these grips (which I believe come in two sizes), were properly fitted to my hands. So that is not the issue. I also tried placing these grips at different angles relative to the horizontal reference without any benefit. I fear that these grips might actually lead to nerve damage by extreme pressure on the median nerve running through the carpal tunnel and the ulnar nerve running through the Guyon canal. Please note that I do not usually perform reviews on products that I purchased. I also have nothing to gain by poorly rating this product.Read more ›
