Grips extremely securely and with little effort. Their soft rubber mixture gives the palm and fingers a lot of grip in combination with the profile. An extra portion of rubber on the upper side absorbs shocks very effectively without making the grip spongy.

Trotz großer Hände vertraute ich bisher lieber auf dünne Griffe. Obwohl ich immer wieder mit tauben Fingern zu kämpfen hatte, hatte ich ein gutes Gefühl dabei. Doch dicker scheint in diesem Fall besser zu sein. Die tauben Finger sind mit den GA2 Fat passé.

[…] The thicker rubber material provides increased damping, and the wider circumference noticeably reduces hand fatigue […] This creates an excellent connection to the bike even for large hands. I definitely mount these grips on my bike at home!

Ergon matches the demands of riders for more grip in hand for their GA series. The GA2 Fat not only benefits riders with larger hands, it’s also a great grip for those who prefer more grip in hand. All of the benefits of the GA2 are achieved with the added benefits of a larger diameter and a greater ability to dampen vibrations. This allows the rider to lessen their gripping forces.
When mountain biking, a good portion of the rider’s pressure rests on the handlebars. Over time this can compress nerves within the hand and cause discomfort, pain or numbness. The design of the GA2 allows the rider to rest their hand in a wider position, counteracting the common discomforts of a tight, narrow grip.
The priorities of high quality materials is one of Ergon’s core values. The soft, durable and pure German rubber with specific texture layout offers a great deal of comfort and control on the bike. With an internal clamp, more space is available for a wider grip. The GA2 provides an ergonomic texture layout and vibration damping while reducing gripping strain.
“Dear Ergon Team, why don’t you try to make grips for my large hands?” – “Great grip, does it come in a bigger size?” You asked for it, we did it. Your feedback on our GA2 grip inspired us to create a thicker version.
The material used in Ergon grips meets the highest quality purity standards, is TÜV-certified, durable and absolutely unique in the world of cycling grips. Developed without filler and using medical grade white oil as the only plasticizer. The UV-resistant rubber compound has been developed and is manufactured exclusively for Ergon in Germany. Ergonomics, product design and engineering – all Made in Germany.
The internal aluminum clamp of the GA2 series leaves ample space for a wide gripping style.
The wall thickness of the inner core is tapered, meaning it proceeds with different, precisely calculated diameters to optimize the damping comfort of the grips.
“In no other invention is the usefulness of a bicycle so intimately connected to the pleasure of use.”
