Updated grip shape and texture! The first gravity specific grip with tapered grip shape. More damping in the outer area with slim inner diameter. The unique rubber compound manufactured in Germany offers adhesive and rebound properties which have never been seen before in a bicycle grip. The grip feeling is soft, but still very defined and precise. The surface profile provides optimal grip and reduces the gripping force at the same time. The slim inner stop additionally improves fast positioning of the hand. The high-strength aluminum inner clamp keeps the grip twist-proof even for carbon handlebars.

Love these grips. I used the GE1 for quite a while but I keep on laying the bike down sideways and I break off the bar ends. One of those times the bar ends saved my life and left me with a Ergon tattoo but thats a story for a different review. I bought the GD1s because of their separate bar end but when I opened them up I felt the grip. Oh the grip. I knew that I would never do no-handers again because my hands would not ever want to leave this grip. Im glad for the lock ons because now even when I dont ride my bike I can take these grips with me everywhere.
Love these grips. Tried several others and none seemed to alleviate the numbness and tingling. Ergon does it again with a fantastic product. They seemed too thin at first glance but out on the trail the material is phenomenal.
The horizontal sipes towards the heel of the hand/palm make the outside edges feel slippery when wet. Otherwise very nice, however this flaw makes them extremely uncomfortable.
Look good, feel good, & ride even better! Best grips I’ve had in over a decade!
