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.
