I bought these grips a few weeks ago to replace the straight grips on my Cinder Cone hardtail.
The grips were easy to install and tighten using an Allen key. I loosely fastened the hex bolt and whilst sitting on the bike, adjusted the grips by rotating them. Once satisfied with the position I tightened the hex bolt. Most difficult part turned out to be the installation of the end caps as they were a very tight fit, pushing square flanges in a round hole. Eventually I wedged a small wooden block between the end cap and the garage wall and used my full body weight to squeeze them in.
In my opinion the grips are great!
No more sore or cramped hands from squeezing the handlebars. Most of the hand palm is in contact with the grips and as a result I did not need to hold the handle bar very tightly to maintain control.
Steering and using the brakes at the same time was much easier than before.
The paddle shaped extensions of the grips are somewhat flexible and absorb some of the impact of bumps. Slow steep downhill descents were a joy.
During the first two rides the grips needed some fine adjustment, so remember to take the right size Allen key with you.
The grips are definitely worth the money.
Very good grips, easy to install and helps position hands and support wrists.
These have proved to be worth every penny of the asking price for me. I have CTS and find all other grips bring on numbness, and eventually pain, sometimes after as little as 30 - 40 minutes. With the GP1's however, it is usually at least a couple of hours before the effects become uncomfortable. I have tried cheaper look a like products previously, but nothing comes close to Ergon grips for both performance & construction. If you suffer from carpel Tunnel or similar these are well worth trying. They have at least bought me some time while I wait for my operation.
Have these on my other mountain bike and like the extra palm area for long rides and rocky descents
Bought these grips as I get numb hands, no more, these are great for doing 4 hour rides. Comfy and numb free. Easy fit and no slipping once fixed with the bolt. 5 stars
I decided to try these grips after suffering from numb hands/fingers on long rides despite wearing the appropriate gloves.
I have not been disappointed, these grips do what they say on the tin!
You need to tweak the angle of these on the bar to find the optimum position but once you have found it these really do help.
Would definitely recommend.
Great quality grips - easy to put on and seem very comfortable so far. They're a big improvement over the standard ones!
These fit well and I find them comfortable in use. My previous pair (cheaper and not same make) went horribly sticky after about 5 years. These look like they will not do that. I am very pleased with these.
Really comfortable. Wish I'd bought them a lot earlier. Would recommend these to everyone.
Good grips that make my longer rides a bit more comfortable. However, they did not magically make all stress on the hands disappear, as was my perhaps over-optimistic expectation.
You should probably bring a hex/allen key with you on a test ride, so as to be able to do some adjustments along the way. Takes some trial and error to find a position that is comfortable over some distance.
Been using them for years.. Good at reducing white noise vibration.
Good piece of kit - easy to fit and comfortable in use - as long as you get them on the right side!!
No slippage even with guessing at the 5Nm torque setting.
Really great grip, easy to adjust.
Once set up to your required position gives excellent support over difficult terrain.
Well made, well designed. They perform just as you hope they will and I love them on my XC MTB. I would buy these again and again.
I have these grips on 3 bikes, I've tried several other types of grip but nothing is as comfortable as these - highly recommended.
Excellent quality product, gives extra support to wrists & very comfortable. Require careful adjustment to get exact positioning to gain full benefit. I have them on two other bikes & wouldn't use anything else.
These grips offer support and comfort for those who may be experiencing some hand discomfort, they provide a platform for a more variable relaxed grip.
I have been suffering numbness on my rides and kept reading about these grips have cured it for most people. Seemed a bit expensive, but I thought I should give them a go. I found that again Merlin were the best deal and again I received my grips from them the day after I ordered them. (Thanks Merlin!). When I went out with my bike I took my allen key along and needed to adjust the grips three times to find the best position, and since then the numbness seems to have faded away. I also think these grips look great, and all-in-all they are a worthwhile purchase.
I already have these fitted on another bike and really like how they take the pressure of your wrists on long rides.
So I have bought a second pair for my other bike.
