The choice of urban riders, commuters, and leisure cyclists around the World! The GP3 features a composite 3-finger bar end with anti-slip rubber inserts. The GP3 offers just a slightly larger bar end than the GP2, giving the rider even more hand positions. The bar end and the grip platform can be independently adjusted for the correct support angle and provides the perfect fit for your individual riding style. The bar end is also the locking clamp for the grip.

Offered in Small or Large, this is the thickness of the grip in hand. The Small and Large are the same length and have the same wing size. The only difference is the thickness of the grip in hand. Riders with smaller hands are best to choose the Small size. Riders with large hands are an ideal fit to the Large size. Ultimately, choice of size is a rider personal preference.
Standard: 2 full length grips
GripShift: 2 short grips
Nexus/Rohloff: 1 full length Left grip, 1 short Right grip
Why bar ends?
Barends offer the rider additional hand positions. Bar ends also allow greater leverage when pulling on the handlebars. Ergon offers its bar ends in various length to suit the demands of all riders.
When I ride a flat-bar bike, my hands start to tingle after about 30 minutes. Adding these grips, with their palm support and alternate hand placement on the bar ends, alleviated the problem completely. Placing my hands on the bar ends is a much more natural position; the padded palm supports really help when my hands are on the flat bar next to the controls. Both of my flat-bar bikes have these grips. My drop-bar bike does not give my any issues due to the many ways to grip the drop bar.
I bought 2 sets, one for me, which I love, and one for my wife. Hers didn't fit her handlebars and because I assembled them, I now cannot return them, which is wrong. In communications with Jeff Kerkov, I was told stndard handlebars are 22.2mm and that's what your grips fit. If you have non-industry standard handlebarsx, the grips won't fit, but there was no communication about that. Again, because I assembled them, they didn't work, I can't return them. This is not right and your return policy should be changed.
I have these on three of my bikes. They give a 2nd position for the rider's hands. Very comfortable riding with hands on the "horns". They also make a big difference for climbing and make it a lot easier because the rider can grab the horns and use them for leverage to put more power down on the pedals.
Ordered a set of GP3 for my flat bar gravel bike. Very comfortable - I no longer need to wear padded gloves, even for long rides. Incidentally, I am 76.
Ordered two pairs of the Ergon GP3. Super comfortable & very well made. They were also extremely easy to put on. I had to wait a little longer than expected & the cost was more than I thought (the website charges in US dollars instead of CDN dollars but they don’t tell you that prior to ordering), but I was still satisfied.
