Slimmer, Softer, lighter, more comfortable w/o sacrificing too much bar control performance. End of bar lock ring allows trimming inside of grip down to size for ideal use with Togs. What's not to like? Performed admirably at True Grit last week. Impressive. Ride a few times to dial in the wing angle.
I am a long time user of Ergons. The GA3 provides less support than the grips I normally use, but appear to be sufficient for in and out of the saddle mountain biking. I use them with high end grip shifts and they seem to be a perfect combo. The Ergons allow me to shift gears at will but keep my hands in position to prevent accidental shifting.
I have used twist grips mtn biking for many years, preferring them over thumb shifters. Grip selection is limited, but I am extremely happy wtih the GA3 single twist grip on my 1x12 XO group. It took a few rides to dial in the correct orientation, with the "fin" higher than I first guessed. Numbness greatly reduced and much better support for my poor battered wrists. Good amount of control and padding without getting in the way. Highly recommended!
