German brand Ergon may not be on your radar until recently. Look closely though, and you’ll see Joe Barnes and Fabien Barel running them on their Enduro team bikes, as well as being standard hardware for the canyon dh team.
With a pedigree in design and development of bike contact points it was only going to be time before they they moved their attention to the type of bikes we ride here at Dirt.
Ergon say that their GE1 (also pictured here) was the first ergonomic rider-oriented grip designed specifically for use with wide handlebars – 750mm or more – the widths most of us are now running. Their unique shape reduces pressure on the sensitive ulna nerve and arm pump is effectively reduced.
