The GC1 grip was developed for the ergonomic demands of riders with backwards-swept handlebars, such as those found on city bikes. Using traditional grips on these bikes causes a kink in the wrist. The GC1 corrects this wrist position through its anatomic and ergonomically correct form. Aches and tension can therefore be reduced. The GC1 is made from German developed, certified toxin free and UV stable rubber compounds. Specially positioned textures and compounds ensure maximum comfort, and a secure grip.
I bought these because I was having numb hands. These helped me stop flexing my wrists down. They really helped lessen my numbness. They offer great support, without giving up too much grip control. Great for long extended rides
