Ergon Grip

GX1 will be my 3rd grip I bought from Ergon. My 1st Ergon grip is GC2 (photo below) and my 2nd will be GP1 (@202g and sold). The 3rd one I ordered from CRC.

These grips are pretty heavy across the board, but they are worth the comfort. I will still be keeping the GC2 which build together with a bar end.

Using the knowledge gained from the development of the Ergon GP1, the GC2 offers optimal pressure distribution and an integrated forged aluminum bar end. Both the support platform and bar end can be individually positioned by loosening the bar end which also acts as the clamp.

GX1 Leichtbau

A lightweight grip for full-on racing. The underlying concept is based on our successful GP and GR series grips. The GX1 features a compact body with a significantly slimmer wing, and lower grip diameter in the mid section than the GP1. The grip is designed for quick hand position changes in challenging riding and racing conditions. Made from a lightweight rubber compound and combined with a highly secure lightweight clamp, the GX series is the most comfortable grip on the World Cup race circuit.


Ergon’s original and ground breaking GP1 continues to set standards. Offering optimal pressure distribution and available in two sizes, it features a forged aluminum clamp for fast and secure installation. Adjustment of the support platform is achieved by simply loosening the clamp bolt and positioning the grip to the desired neutral position.
