Ergon counts its GS series grips as its premium endurance race model. This isn't a stretch considering it's been ridden to multiple world and national championships. With a palatable price, the GS1 has a relatively simple design, the key features of which are two internal supports built into the body of the grip that promote rebound and better control during rides when hand fatigue becomes a serious concern. The cold forged, slender aluminum grip has a slight wing profile and is coated in Direct Control rubber that works to provide grip as well as dampen some trail chatter. We appreciate that the GS1 is also offered in two sizes to account for different hand breadths, ensuring serious racers get the ideal size when riding distances that demand precision fit. Whether you're looking for a comfortable XC racing grip or are riding marathon races, the GS1 is a valuable option to have at the ready before a ride.
