When riding, your hands support a lot of your upper body weight on the handlebars, placing high pressure on a relatively small grip area. In many cases this puts too much pressure on the ulnar nerve that runs near the base of the palm near the pinky and close to the skin’s surface – often causing numbness. The winged grip increases the hand’s supporting area by distributing pressure over a wider surface and thereby preventing discomfort.
If your wrist is bent too much for too long, nerves, tendons and blood vessels can become compressed. The result is the carpal tunnel channel is constricted, which could cause damage the median nerve. Long rides and fatigue make it even harder for the rider to maintain a correct and healthy posture. The winged design of our GS grips gives the hand more support and automatically puts the wrist into a more ergonomic position, preventing numbness, tingling and pain.
Two sizes – for individualized control
In order to help you maintain perfect control over your bike, your hands should not completely envelop the grip, which is why Ergon offers many grips in two size diameters – Small and Large. The difference refers to the grip width (hand size), meaning a larger hand will have a more positive fit on a thicker grip, while a smaller hand is better fit to a smaller grip. For hand/glove sizes 6.5 to 8.5 we recommend Small, for 8.5 to 10.5 Large usually is better.
Choose from two diameters to fit small or large hands:
- Small: 92mm cross section, hand size 6.5-8.5
- Large: 102mm cross section, hand size 8.5-10.5
- Lock On: Yes
- Grip Shift Specific: No
- Length: 142 mm
- Shape: Ergo
