The GS2 grip offers an optimized balance of comfort and performance required by top endurance athletes. It uses "DirectControl Leichtbau" rubber to keep the weight down, combined with a more cushioned form to protect the hands better on all day rides like 24 hour or marathon races. The grip has 3 distinct areas, using different compounds and textures to provide grip and comfort as required. Featuring non-slip rubber inserts, the bar end doubles as the clamp, allowing both the grip and the bar end to be independently adjusted.
These grips are not suitable for use with carbon handlebars.
These grips totally eliminated my numbing issues. I took a lot of experimentation with their postion, and repositioning the bars, and controls, and re-repositioning everything, but eventually I got it. They need quite a bit of rotation. Sitting on hte side of hte bike, (front wheel to the right, rear to the left) and looking the the grip, the most comfortable position of hte grip, was with the extended flat part at about 10 o'clock to 10:30. Amazing product.
