Ergon grips of the Performance Comfort series provide effective relief for numb fingers, aching hands and forearms - problems that many bikers are familiar with. The causes of these complaints are excessive pressure on particularly sensitive areas of the palm and possible malpositioning of the hand. Thanks to the anatomically optimal shape, Ergon grips provide 100% contact surface compared to conventional round grips, which only provide a contact surface of approx. 60%. Therefore, the pressure is significantly lower, especially in the area of the ulnar nerve, and it is almost impossible for the hands to fall asleep. The anatomical shape of the Ergon GP series further ensures correction of the hand position in all directions of movement. If the grip is correctly adjusted, the hand cannot be misaligned. Overloading of the median nerve (carpal tunnel syndrome) is excluded and wrist pain is prevented.
The GreenLab Initiative prioritises ergonomic development with the aim of putting forth products that combine aspects of ergonomics, performance and environmental sustainability. The GreenLab Initiative has played a particularly important role in Ergon's development process, and has led to important product innovations. All packaging for the extensive Ergon handle series was developed from scratch.
Top priorties in specifications include aspects such as the lowest possible use of materials, a high degree of use for recycled materials, a high degree of ecological sustainability in used materials and a high recyclability factor. As a result, the packaging is so innovative that it has already been awarded the DesignPlus packaging prize. Ergon GreenLab also created the GP1 BioKork handle, further setting the standard with materials and production processes representing state-of-the-art advances in this field.
As hand sizes considerably vary depending on the person, Ergon's grips from the GP and GS series are standardly available in two sizes, small and large. The size difference refers to the grip circumference. This means that a larger hand will fit better on a thicker grip. Likewise, a small hand has a better grab on a thinner grip. These differences have a direct impact on the handling of the bike as a whole.
