The Ergon GE1 Grips are specifically developed for gravity oriented mountain biking. Enduro, all-mountain, and downhill are where the GE1 shines. The slim cylindrical form allows optimal rotation of the hand on the grip - for pulling up on jumps, or moving your weight back when riding drop-offs. The four different surface textures optimize grip and together with the anatomic shape allow for maximum control with minimum clamping force being required from the hand. In the area of the Ulna nerve, at the ball of the hand, a pressure relief zone has been included which prevents sleeping fingers. The grip also takes advantage of a lightweight high quality forged aluminum clamp which secures the damping optimized inner core and the whole grip.
