Product Description

The popular GP1, but with the feel and comfort of natural cork.
  • 182g 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 fi bre, 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.

    Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

    Excellent product
    by David R on 07/05/2018

    Excellent product that gives great comfort and a lovely feel of the Cork effect; I previously had the grey plastic version and this is, in my opinion, far superior!

    very good product
    by Frederic M on 16/05/2017

    Very nice product, they are very comfortable and well built. Compared to my previous, they are much better. Haven't used them that much until now so will see how they go with time. Packaging very eco friendly with no plastic (only 1 biodegradable packaging and the rest is recylable)

    Good Grips
    by Richard M on 14/11/2012

    Having had the GP1 standard version for a while I am happy with the BioKork version. The grips are a little less rubbery in feel and I find the grip as effective. The shape and contours are exactly the same quality grip that minimise or eliminates for me any hand or finger numbness during long rides. Ideal for touring or daily commutes.I like the green credentials too as the grips are made from cork and biodegradable materials all packed in recycled packaging.

    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.
