Ergon's largest diameter grip! Updated colors! The GA2 FAT features the same technology and shaping as the popular GA2, but with extra thick 33mm circumference. The ergonomic optimized form allows reduced force while gripping, because the grip zones are matched to the hand. The inner construction varies in thickness allowing greater damping. Super soft, UV-stable rubber compound is exclusively manufactured in Germany for Ergon! This allows greater control even on demanding trails.

They are tough and comfy. Work best with the super ergo SQ labs riser bats and good with my SamHill riser bars. Rating 4 stars because the white "integrated" bar ends fell out out after only a few rides. I could have been an assumption, but I didn't realize these *could* fall out. I emailed support so we will see what they say.
I don't have large hands but I do like a chunky grip. Honestly I could go even fatter on these if Ergon offered them.
Wish the fat grips came in the Midsummer Blue, not sure why they don't. I have the GA2's on both bikes If that says anything. Would I purchase them again? I'm not sure at this point as I want to see if the bar ends stay in longer on the other set.
Grips are good. Used to get some hand pain with my old ergon grips. Upgraded to the fat grips and so far have had no more issues. Easy install.
My hands would tend to get numb after about 30' on the bike. I always felt like the grip was too small to get a good grip on it without holding it really tight. I got a thicker grip and my hands have yet to go numb. I really like these grips.
The grip profile designed in these grips makes for a more comfortable feel as compared to other fat grips with a uniform straight thickness profile. Also the extra mass prevents heats loss on winter rides. I have these on all of my bikes.
It is a Christmas gift.
