Product Description

All the benefits of the GC1 grip for cyclists with backwards-swept bars. But combined with Ergon's bioKork technology.
  • 195g per pair
Why BioKork?

The unique qualities of cork means that it is antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Cork's natural damping qualities also make it an ideal grip material, and its low density mean the resulting grip is a lot lighter. The bioKork grips use 40% cork, sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal which is certified for its ecologically sound production. This ecological theme is continued throughout the rest of the grip. The inner core is plastic reinforced using natural fibre, which make up 40% of its mass. in place of mineral oil, the gel in the palm section of the grip is vegetable oil based. it is all a result of Ergon's “GreenLab” initiative.

Great for comfort

I got these grips as an upgrade from another set of Ergons that I had last year; I decided that I didn't need the bar-end bits, and also, I wanted the cork finish to match with other stuff on the bike. Anyway, they feel good to ride with, my hand/wrist pain has diminished over the last few months, and I think they look good. Definitely worth a shot in my book, if you're suffering from discomfort from using drops, etc., and you're not intending to break speed records.

Grips & Bar Tape Guide

What are grips and bar tape?

Grips and bar tape form the padding you rest your hands on when you cycle.

Who needs grips and bar tape?

Grips and bar tape don’t last forever. They’re a bike consumable that you will need to replace when it gets too worn.

What are the choices?

If your bike has flat handlebars, you need grips, if you ride drop bars you need bar tape. Beyond this, there’s a bewildering array of materials, textures and colours to choose from, all promoting different comfort and performance properties.

What should I buy with them?

Grips are only one half of the cycling hand comfort equation. Pamper your palms properly and add a decent pair of cycling gloves as well.

Anything else?

Grips and bar tape aren’t just about comfort – there are so many fantastic colours and designs to choose from, it’s a great way to add a splash of your personality to your bike.
