Easy on the nerves
When cycling, the hands support a large part of the upper body weight on the handlebars. This creates a lot of pressure on the small surface of the handlebars. Often pinching off the very sensitive ulnar nerve, which runs in thereich of the little finger ball, just below the skin surface. This can cause numbness. The wing grip increases the contact area of the hand, distributing pressure more evenly and preventing discomfort.
No kink â no tingling
The bending of the wrist compresses nerves, tendons and blood vessels. Consequently, the carpal tunnel narrows and can damage the median nerve. Prolonged cycling with increasing fatigue makes it difficult to maintain a healthy posture. The wing design of our GP grips supports the hand, automatically places the wrist in an ergonomically ideal position, preventing numbness, tingling and pain.
Thick and thin for the best control
To ensure that you always have your bikead under control, your hand should not completely enclose the grip. Ergon offers many grips, including the GP5, optionally in the sizes âSmallâ and âLargeâ. The difference refers to the grip width. This means: A larger hand has a better form fit on a thicker grip, while for a smaller hand a thinner grip fits best. For hand (shoe) sizes 6,5â8,5 we recommend the size Small, for 8,5â10,5 the size Large.
