- Made for Downhill
- The world-class choice
- Unique rubber compound
The world class downhill grip is now even better! By working together with top professionals like Rémy Métailler and Vali Höll, the GD1 has evolved to provide even more comfort and control in demanding terrain. The GD1 Evo features more damping, better control, and enhanced comfort for more riding fun. Less gripping power is required due to its conical shape, super soft thumb zone and new inner stop design. In addition, the factory version features a unique rubber compound exclusively made in Germany for an even more precise grip feel. The GD1 Evo is twist-proof on carbon handlebars and available in two diameters.
Conical grip design
The GD1 EVO Factory has a conical, tapered shape. The grip diameter gradually increases towards the end of the grip. This increases the damping properties towards the end of the grip while the inboard diameter stays slim and responsive. The result is that you get the combined advantages of great comfort and total control on demanding trail.
Minimum effort – maximum grip
The anti-slip tread pattern along with the new super soft thumb zone provides maximum grip. Additionally, the slim redesigned inner stop improves the ability to quickly position the hand and ensures full access of the shift levers. The overall design requires maximum control with less gripping force.
Available in two sizes
The GD1 Evo is available in two diameters, standard and slim. Standard is recommended for glove sizes Large / X-Large (8.5 – 10.5) or for riders who want increased cushioning. The Slim version is suitable for glove sizes Small / Medium (6.5 – 8.5) or riders who prefer grips with a smaller grip range.
EXCLUSIVE QUALITY – Grip rubber Made in Germany
The material used in Ergon grips meets the highest quality purity standards, is TÜV-certified, durable and absolutely unique in the world of cycling grips. The silicone-based, UV-resistant rubber compound of the GD1 EVO Factory is developed and manufactured exclusively for Ergon in Germany. Ergonomics, product design and engineering – all made in Germany.
FACTORY CUSTOM RUBBER – Increased durability
Cycling grips are repeatedly subject to mechanical wear and abrasion – particularly in an environment as tough as mountain biking. Ergon’s exclusive „Factory Custom Rubber“ compound maintains its high grip properties and precise structure much longer than other compounds.
INNER CLAMP – Internal clamp
The internal aluminum clamp of the GD series leaves ample space for controls as well as supports a wide gripping position. The strength of this clamping system prevents any twisting of the grip, even on carbon bars.
REPLACEABLE END PLUGS – Added toughness
The GD1’s end plugs are replaceable –a useful detail for adding even more longevity to your grips.
