The GE1 Evo is the evolution of the successful Ergon GE1. It was specifically developed for racing in the Enduro World Series. The first ergonomic, rider-oriented grip for wide rise bars with more comfort, a more precise grip feeling and better performance.
Ergonomic body position
The grip surface is designed to actively support the more aggressive, wider bar technical trail riding position. By turning 8 degrees to the handlebar axis, the elbows are automatically lifted outwards when gripping! This gives you maximum control at all times, even on the toughest Enduro tracks.
The GE1 Evo offers a precise gripping control due to its ergonomic shape and texture layout. This allows the rider to conserve energy that is normally wasted with a greater gripping force on a non ergonomic grip. Available in two diameters (Standard and Slim), suitable for different hand sizes and grip size preferences.
The increase of gripping control is due to the specific texture layout and ergonomic shaping. Having the texture go against the gripping force prevents hand rotation and enhances control for both comfort and performance.
Optimal pressure distribution
The GE1 features an inboard, soft rubber, tear-drop shaping for the thumb area. The grip then flares out towards the oute edge to allow for more pressure distribution. The texture extends to the end of the grip and protects the pressure-sensitive ulnar nerve from being compressed. A better distribution of pressure in this area aids in preventing common nerve issues such as tingling, discomfort and numbness.
Inner Core Construction
The grip wall varies in thickness within the inner core. This provides a specific delivery of damping of vibrations in common highly sensitive zones. The GE1 Evo offers additional damping comfort in the far outer end with the fully integrated grip end. This creates a soft, cushioned grip edge.
