Combining ergonomics, function, and sustainability, the GP1 BioKork has is a top-rated grip and a consumer favorite. The grip is made from 40% cork, sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal. A forged aluminum clamp allows the grip angle to be adjusted for perfect fit.
Optimized Pressure Management
The hands bolster a large part of the upper body weight onto the grips. Thus there is constant and high pressure onto a small area causing nerves to be irritated. To make matters worse, many cyclists bend their wrists too much. The result is sensory loss, tingling, numbness or abnormal sensations in the little finger and ring finger. In extreme cases, even the grasping function of all fingers is limited.
Optimized Hand Positions
Thanks to the angle-adjustable Ergon grips you can find your ideal hand position in order to relieve your wrists. Through the Ergon grip’s “wing” construction, the hand is fully supported and the wrist is automatically put in an ergonomically ideal position (left photo below).
The Ergon Difference
As the hand size is different from person to person, Ergon offers the GP1 grips in two sizes – Small that corresponds to hand glove size 6.5-8.5, and Large (Gripshift) that corresponds to hand glove size 8.5-12.0. The difference lies in the diameter of the grip. The reason for this is that a larger hand is better able to grip a larger grip with less stress and effort. A smaller hand needs a smaller grip to allow the hand to close around it. But of course, grip size also comes down to personal preference.
