If you look at all my mountain bikes, you’ll note they all share one thing in common: the grips! A few years back, I got hit by a car and broke my pinky. It took months of PT to get my grip back to where I could feel comfortable on a mountain bike again. Yet, one thing I noticed was severe pain while on long descents. I tried everything but then a friend turned me on to the GE1 grips from Ergon and I never experienced pain again. Now, I’m not a physical therapist or a bike fit specialist, but the team at Ergon have designed the best grips I’ve ever used and they fixed my hand pain.
New for 2020 are my favorite grips, back in a few new colors. Take these olive drab and desert tan grips. It’s like they made them especially for us! The new 2020 designs from Ergon are shipping now, so holler at your shop to order you a pair if you too are a fan.
