Installed on my Vado 5.0; the GP1 grips (the best) and ST Core Prime saddle (the best) lets me to concentrate on the joys and benefits of cycling. No pain...all gain.
I've used these grips heavily for 3 weeks. Before installing had numbness in my hands. Since installing I have gone on a 2 day bike packing trip on the Katy trail and multiple 10 mile single track rides with no issues.
Bought these for my wife. She has issues with her wrists on longer rides. She really likes the comfort these provide. Very high quality grips.
I know nothing of the mountain biking world and knew nothing about saddles as this was my first bike / saddle purchase. The saddle my bike came with was upscale but too small for my sit bones, this company seems very competent and passionate about what they do so I gave them a try! I’ve had my seat for 2 weeks now and I have to say it’s a world of difference, I used to get off my saddle in pain and wincing at the thought of my next ride. This saddle makes me love mountain biking more and it’s pretty comfortable, as comfortable as a saddle can be I suppose haha. I’ll have to buy more saddles to give it a true review, but all in all I’m happy with my purchase, thank you Ergon !
Very Happy with the product.
Overall, I'm happy with these grips, but I would caution users to follow the instructions about using a torque wrench, or at least be careful not to overtighten. Apparently, I did overtighten the Allen bolts, enough to cause wearing on the socket edges that made the bolts difficult to loosen and re-tighten. Fortunately, customer service was willing to accommodate my carelessness, and sent me a new pair of bolts in exchange for the user-damaged ones. Live and learn! Enjoy your new grips!
My bike came with WTB slip-on grips which weren't bad. However, on longer and more technical rides I started experiencing grip fatigue and even a bit of cramping. Some research turned up these GA2 FAT grips which other people with big hands seemed to like. First ride they were different enough to call attention to themselves. Second ride they "disappeared" along with the grip discomfort. Completely forgot they were on the bike. A perfect fix for me. They are a little pricey, but so what? They look like they will probably outlast the bike.
This is the one recommended in the fit finder and it fits great. I really like the topeak adapter that’s included too.
Great grips as expected. Much better than the stock grips that came on my ebike. Far more comfortable with the palm support than standard straight grips. Should have gotten them sooner.
Excluding the recent purchase of this saddle, I presently have 9 saddles by other manufacturers. This is my 2nd Ergon saddle. The other an SC Core Prime L presently on my Como E-bike; the ST Core Prime on my Vado 5.0. In both instances, all saddle issues/problems were solved. The dynamic feature of the saddles is a plus. Were everyone who rides bikes looking for comfortable performance to try Ergon products for two or three rides, Ergon would certainly be the choice.
Best to use a little gorilla glue when installing.
Still breaking in but very happy with it so far. Have used some great saddles in the past, particularly specialized & wtb, and this is up there with the best of those.
I really like these grips. They are almost infinitely adjustable, which is really helpful; I can get the palm area exactly where I need the support and also change the angle of the bar ends. Honestly, I've not been using the bar ends as much a I thought I might, but it's nevertheless nice to have them there so I can change up my grip now and again. And while this is probably the least important factor, I do think they look great. So I'm happy all around.
I've never had a saddle fit me so well. I measured my own sit bones to be 12.7cm, which put me in the low end of XL. The SR Pro is FANTASTIC! I've only had one ride but it was a 52-mile loop. No issues whatsoever. I've always fought with perineum soreness and had ZERO soreness post-ride or the day after with this saddle.
I had been shopping for flat, wide, and channeled saddles. I bought a SQLabs saddle and the Ergon SR Pro to do a saddle-off. The Ergon gets the nod!
A lot of saddles advertise overall width but their crowned shapes defeat that width as well as whatever center channel it might have.
The SQLabs was close but the Ergon SR Pro nailed it for me! Please never stop making this saddle.
And love the grips! I think I found my permanent grips for life
