Details

The GS3 combines comfort in a lightweight package, ideal for long distance endurance athletes. The three-finger bar end is made out of fiberglass reinforced composite, which offers more hand positions for increased comfort and leverage on long mountain bike rides. Additional rubber is used on the bar end, improving the rider's grip during hand position changes. The exclusive German-produced rubber compound found in the grip and on the bar end enables precise steering and control, all the while still maximizing optimized damping features. The grip provides ideal comfort over long distances through ultimate pressure distribution and ride-tuned flex.

- Carbon bar compatible
- Bar end: fiberglass composite with rubber inserts

Ergon GP and GS Series Grip Sizing Explained

Since hand sizes vary from person to person, the GP Series and GS Series grips are offered in two sizes; Small and Large.

These sizes refer to the gripping circumference. The Large size is a thicker grip, and the Small is a thinner grip. Two size options offer better hand closure around the grip surface. These size differences have a direct impact on the overall handling of the bike, as well as comfort.

Problem: Excessive pressure on the sensitive areas of the hands result in numb fingers.
Excessive pressure example

Solution: With an anatomically optimized design, Ergon grips offer 100% contact with the hand surface area, versus traditional round grips, that offer only 60% contact.

Optimized pressure management with Ergon grips

Problem: Excessive curvature of the wrist leads to undesired kinks in the carpal tunnel nerve. This results in a burning pain in the hand or forearm.

Solution: By correcting the hand position, the carpal tunnel nerve is relieved and pain is eliminated.
