The GC1 is a grip developed for the ergonomic demands of riders using sweptback handlebars, usually found on city and touring bikes. Using tradition grips on these bikes can cause a kink in the wrist which leads to discomfort in the hands and wrists. The GC1 corrects this wrist position through its anatomic and ergonomically correct form. Any aches and tension therefore can be eliminated. Ergon’s GC1 is now available in an earth-friendly BioKork version.

was looking for something to alleviate wrist hand/strain that could work with my abnormally sweaty paws. These checked both boxes. And they were easy peasy to put on my Jones bars. AND they look pretty sweet, I have a bit of a retro look going with my ride and these are perfect.
I ran the standard offset Bio-cork grips for about 5 years and loved both the looks and the feel. When it came time to replace them, I decided on the swept-back offset version for a Velo Orange Cuvy Bar with 30 degrees of sweep. They still look great, and this version feels even better. I will buy them again in another several years when these wear out!
