Ergon GP1 Grips
Ergon's original and ground breaking GP1 continues to set standards. Offering optimal pressure distribution and available in two sizes, it features a forged aluminum clamp for fast and secure installation. Adjustment of the support platform is achieved by simply loosening the clamp bolt and positioning the grip to the desired neutral position.
This is a perfect add on to a daily commuter bike with flat/riser bars. It give a well balanced grip with ample support for the palm (just get the right size for your hands) Long weekend rides are better without having to worry about turning back because my wrist hurt.
Grips don't slip and are very comfortable. I've crashed plenty and whacked trees, but they are still holding up. I use them for mountain biking, but would like another pair for my city bike as well. I didn't feel much difference between the large and small. Either one provides a substantial platform for your palm.
I've had wrist issues which made riding for extended periods of time difficult. I originally bought these grips for my wife but after trying them found them to be exceptionally comfortable and supportive. I use them for XC riding and racing and has given me the endurance riding I've been looking for. If you're looking for a comfortable grip I highly recommend giving these a try.
I tried these on my XC bike. With a DH background, I guess I just hammer the rocky DH even on a light bike. In those situations, I could not hold onto this grip well enough to control the bike as much as I need to.
