The new and unique rubber compound, 100% made in Germany, creates previously unknown grip and rebound characteristics. The feel is soft, yet very defined and precise. The GE1 is specifically developed around the demands of gravity and enduro riding. These 2 specific styles of mountain biking have riders gripping the handlebars very wide while the elbows are kept bent. This aggressive riding position dictates the construction of the grip. The result? The grip itself is able to prevent typical issues of arm pump in the arms and hands.

Really like the shape, texture, grip, etc of these grips. In fact, these are my second set. Unfortunately, I had a relatively minor crash which broke the end cap of one grip. Since the end caps are integrated and can't be replaced separately, I'm getting a second set. Guess it's a sign of how much I like them, but a little bit frustrating none the less. Also, a slight nit to pick is that even for the factory stealth version, the inner plastic is white which shows up under the locking collar. I've considered taping and spray painting the inner end black, but so far that's OCD even for me.
I've ridden a lot of grips over the years and the GE1 is by far my favorite. They're padded but not too padded and tacky but not too tacky.
Grips are grippy for sure and they take a little bit of twisting around and riding to find you sweet spot. Really grippy with gloves and comfy without…I’d put em on all my bikes
Ergon invests the time to create the best grips and saddles on the market. The GE1 offers comfort for all types of riding and I’ve been super impressed with just how invisible they become on my bike. I don’t realize how “good” they are until I’m riding a rental bike with other brands grips. Do your hands a favor and improve your ride with Ergon grips.
Excelent comfortable product
