Ergon’s downhill specific GD1 grips fulfill all promises: They are precise, comfortable, dampen vibrations and are durable. For me, they replace my old favorites, the classic push-on-renthal grips.

The GD1 has a conical, tapered shape. The grip diameter gradually increases towards the end of the grip. This increases the damping properties towards the end of the grip while the inboard diameter stays slim and responsive. The result is that you get the combined advantages of great comfort and total control on demanding trail.
The anti-slip tread pattern along with the new super soft thumb zone provides maximum grip. Additionally, the slim redesigned inner stop improves the ability to quickly position the hand and ensures full access of the shift levers. The overall design requires maximum control with less gripping force.
The GD1 Evo is available in two diameters, standard and slim. Standard is recommended for glove sizes Large / X-Large (8.5 – 10.5) or for riders who want increased cushioning. The Slim version is suitable for glove sizes Small / Medium (6.5 – 8.5) or riders who prefer grips with a smaller grip range.
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. The super soft, UV-stable rubber compound of the GD1 EVO is developed and manufactured exclusively for Ergon in Germany. Ergonomics, product design and engineering – all made in Germany.
The internal aluminum clamp of the GD series leaves ample space for controls as well as supports a wide gripping position. The strength of this clamping system prevents any twisting of the grip, even on carbon bars.
The GD1’s end plugs are replaceable – a useful detail for adding even more longevity to your grips.
