A lightweight grip for racing. The same lightweight grip body as the GX1, but featuring a newly developed multi-position barend made from 100% carbon and weighing only 34g each. By using WMT (wrap mould technology) an alu insert has been deemed unnecessary. The barend and the support platform on the grip can be independently adjusted for the correct angle to allow the optimal fit for individual saddle position and riding style.
* Constructing products which meet the highest standards of quality and function is what Ergon strives for. Our lightweight rubber GX grips didn't meet this standard in our opinion, and the first production was therefore stopped. We have revised their construction and aim to re-launch the GX in October 2007. Thank you for your understanding.

Strengths: Allows your hands and wrist to relax during rides, quality construction.
Weaknesses: The single bolt has to be tightened periodically. Two bolts might improve overall installation.
This is one piece of gear I've picked up that actually makes a difference in riding comfort and performance. My hands and arms definitely feel more rested and less stressed after long rides.
I get a ton of questions about the grips and riders want to check them out. I've had numerous riding partners pick up a set after trying them out on my bike and universally have had positive experiences on their own machines.
These are bolt on grips, so installation is quick and effortless. The one bolt design is clean, but it might be nice to have two bolts. I do check the bolt tightness every other ride or so to ensure they don't slip.
