All new colors for 2020! An all-mountain and gravity grip with a non-biased layout, developed in part with former DH World Champion and current Canyon Factory Enduro Team captain, Fabien Barel. Including an inboard aluminum clamp, the rider has the ability to ride wide on the handlebar and contact nothing but super soft rubber. Although maximized and designed for the demands of DH, enduro, and all-mountain riding, the GA2 is just as at home on the XC bike and technical mtb trails.

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.
I have used so many different brands of grips in my 20+ years riding and I wear through them all really fast. These grips are so comfortable with or without gloves and I love how long they last. I teach mountain biking which puts me on the bike all day multiple days in a row and so far after 5 months using these grips they seem new!
Products that have to do with ergonomics (grips, gloves, shoes, etc) are subjective to the individual/ hard to rate as a whole, even though they didn't work for me, I know a lot of people who love these grips. I wanted to do something about hand numbness, I've been using the same grips for years. I think because the Ergons have a larger outside diameter than what I'm used to, it totally changes the bike feel. I actually had a couple crashes on trails I've ridden for years, and on sections that aren't really anything sepcial. My brain just didnt know how to make the adjustment. I'm sure if I've given them a long term try I may get used to them. I'm just really particular about the parts of the bike that my body comes in contact with ( ive been using same shoe, helmet, and saddle brands for decades). Even though these grips didn't work for me, I would totally give other Ergon products a try in the future.
I was excited to get these grips and replace the originals on my Marlin 7. After riding 13 miles on some semi rough trails, I can honestly say no more hand fatigue. These are now my go to grips!
