ST Recommended | The Ergon GE1 EVO Factory lock-on grips go one better than the original

by 0

What are the best mountain bike grips? Wil’s tested a bunch over the years, and here he’s put together five of his favourite lock-on grips. Over to Wil!

German brand Ergon may be best known for its popular flared grip design, though it also offers ‘normal’ grips too, including the GD1 series (gravity), the GA series (All Mountain), and these; the GE1 series (enduro).

Ergon’s GE1 EVO grips are now available in more options.

Originally launched back in 2013, the GE1 was designed in conjunction with all-round downhill and enduro shredder, Fabian Barel. During the development process, Ergon conducted motion analysis of its EWS team riders to determine what hand positions they favoured, and how this would change from climbing to descending.

The result was what Ergon claimed to be the first ergonomic grip designed specifically for wide bars.
