Goodbye hand pain and finger numbness

Hand discomfort while cycling is common, especially on longer rides. With unsupportive conventional round grips, riders often experience numbness in the fingers, as well as pain and irritation in the palms and wrists. Discomfort in the forearms, upper arms, neck and shoulders, can also be attributed to unsuitable grips with poor support. With the iconic GP1wing shape, Ergon has made it possible for millions of cyclists to enjoy comfortable cycling for the over 20 years.

Complaint-free cycling thanks to the GP1 Evo

Distributes pressure, protects the nerves

While cycling, a significant percentage of a rider’s body weight rests on the hands. This leads to high amount of pressure on a small area of the grips. This often constricts the extremely sensitive ulnar nerve, which runs under the skin surface in the area of the pinky finger. The wing shape of the GP1 Evo, which is scientifically adapted to the hand, effectively distributes pressure over a larger area, preventing discomfort.

Aligned wrists prevents discomfort

Overly bent wrists while cycling results in nerves, tendons and blood vessels being compressed. This can lead to severe pain and mobility problems concerning the median nerve. The ergonomic wing design of the GP1 Evo gently supports the wrist in an ergonomically optimized position – effectively alleviating wrist pain and soreness and numb tingling fingers.

Unique rubber grips Free from harmful substances and SGS certified

The unique LongLife rubber compound in the GP1 Evo exceeds European quality standards, is free of harmful substances and as SGS certification. Even the European Toy and Food Standard is met - a particularly important aspect for gloveless cyclists whose hands often have direct skin contact with the grips for hours. Two durometers of grip rubber provide the best damping and comfort.
