Ergon GP1 Biokork Grips
The result of Ergon's Greenlab initiative, this new version of the GP1 uses the natural damping qualities of cork to built a lighter, extremely comfortable grip. Cork also makes it anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic.
- 40% cork - sourced from sustainable forests
- 40% of the core plastic uses natural fibres
- Vegetable oil replaces mineral oil in the palm area gel and the clamp can be 100% recycled
- Ergonomically correct hand position and optimal pressure distribution
- Natural cork composite for increased grip
- Sustainable materials used for all grip components
Brian. Same price everywhere, they are very comfy, but overpriced, that's why I shop at Merlin. I know I'll get reliable and speedy service.
JB Yet to test but feels very comfortable
Andrew Very comfortable grip with good support and a nice feel. Be aware that if fitting to a Brompton bike for example, you do need to cut the grips down a bit.
Mr Morley Lovely grips - comfortable even without gloves, and a perfect match for the Pashley Paramount I've just rejuvenated.
Fiona Excellent replacement for Brompton grips. If you have 2017 model onwards you can change in 5 mins with no cutting involved. More comfortable and no need to wear gloves, very grippy.
Martin These are the best grips I've ever had. They are really comfortable, much more so than my previous ergonomic ones, and they are very grippy, and even a little 'sticky', though not in a bad way. They are well worth the money I paid for, and have a good quality feel about them. If, and when they eventually need replacing, I would not hesitate to buy from the company again, as the grips have impressed me so much. They are also very easy to fit on, and I would say it took me no longer than 10-15 minutes to replace my old ones with these...Really pleased with my purchase.
TourYes A bit disappointed. I was expecting a real cork grip but ended up with a rubber grip sprinkled with cork particles! Although the grip itself is comfy due to its ergonomic shape, the feel of the cork is not there.
Mr nick Great product, very comfortable to use but only tighten bolt by hand or the thread will strip. Very good price and first class service by Merlin
Nelly Love these grips! I used to get awful hand cramps but now can ride long DH tracks in the Alps all day without problems. These get 4 rather than 5 as they don't last as long as the regular version. Weight-weenie-ness leads me to buy these though as they are 20g lighter...!
Mrs Hewitt Look great on my Brompton - had to cut a bit off but finish still looked OK. Really comfortable
Mr Smith Good choice and fast delivery, spot on mate!
John These are nice grips, comfortable and look good. The only problem with them is that the bar ends they are supplied with categorically do not fit inside standard handlebar tubes so you will have to use a metal file for a long time to get them down to the right size. Whilst I was doing this, one of them broke. So now I have to either have no bar ends, or buy a new pair that actually fit.
