Ergon GE1 Evo Factory Grips
The GE1 EVO Factory is an evolution of the successful GE1, it was designed for the toughest races in the Enduro World Series. The level of performance is enhanced by the factory rubber’s increased durability, grip-ability, and texture layout.
Based upon feedback from countless riders of the Enduro World Series, the Ergon design team made several enhancements to the already popular GE1 Grips. This all-new rider-oriented, ergonomic grip features a surface texture that's now even more slip-proof and the rubber compound even softer, lending constant precise grip. It actively supports the correct torso/forearm position during downhill riding – by rotating the grip area towards the steering axle by 8 degrees, the elbows are automatically outwardly raised. Forged inner clamp, fully integrated grip end connected to the inner core (Pat. Pending) – this establishes a soft, damping grip edge, allowing your hand to grip right at the outer edge. Pressure is diminished from the sensitive ulnar nerve, which is located on the outside hand.

- Improved surface texture and softer rubber compound for better grip
- Grip texture orientation is opposite the rotation of the hand for superior grip
- Factory grips are optimized for exceptional adhesive and rebound properties
- Grip surface is tilted by 8 degrees to support elbows-out riding style
- Inboard aluminum clamp enables rider to grip the end of the bar comfortably
- Damping inner core construction
- Compatible with carbon handlebars
Ergonomic body position
The grip surface is designed to actively support the more aggressive, wider bar technical trail riding position. By turning 8 degrees to the handlebar axis, the elbows are automatically lifted outwards when gripping! This gives you maximum control at all times, even on the toughest Enduro tracks.
The GE1 Evo Factory offers precise gripping control due to its ergonomic shape and texture layout. This allows the rider to conserve energy that is normally wasted with a greater gripping force on a non-ergonomic grip. Available in two diameters (Standard and Slim), suitable for different hand sizes and grip size preferences.
The increase of gripping control is due to the specific texture layout and ergonomic shaping. Having the texture go against the gripping force prevents hand rotation and enhances control for both comfort and performance.
Optimal pressure distribution
The GE1 features an inboard, soft rubber, tear-drop shaping for the thumb area. The grip then flares out towards the outer edge to allow for more pressure distribution. The texture extends to the end of the grip and protects the pressure-sensitive ulnar nerve from being compressed. A better distribution of pressure in this area aids in preventing common nerve issues such as tingling, discomfort and numbness.
Inner Core Construction
The grip wall varies in thickness within the inner core. This provides a specific delivery of damping of vibrations in common highly sensitive zones. The GE1 Evo Factory offers additional damping comfort in the far outer end with the fully integrated grip end. This creates a soft, cushioned grip edge.
