With a tapered grip shape (patent pend.) which features more damping in the outer area of the grip and a slim inner diameter, Ergon is making waves on the DH scene with their new GD1 Factory Grip. The unique rubber compound, which is manufactured in Germany, offers adhesive and rebound properties which have never been seen before in a bicycle grip. The grip feels supple and soft, but still very defined and precise. The surface profile provides the hands with optimal grip and reduced gripping force. The slim inner stop additionally improves fast positioning of the hand, to keep up with your reflexes. The high-strength aluminum inner clamp keeps the grip from twisting or shifting, even on carbon handlebars. With an inner-diameter of 30mm and outer-diameter of 32mm, the GD1 Factory has, in comparison to the GD1 Slim Factory, more damping characteristics and is recommended for riders with glove size L/XL (8,5 - 10,5) or riders who prefer a normal grip thickness.
