put a some hair spray on the bar before you install the grip as well..

are you using a good torque wrench to tighten to the correct amount?

Yea, my Ergons slip like crazy on my Syntace bars (GX2 LB grips). I put some assembly paste on there and it helped a bit. Mine still slip from time to time, despite having them torqued a bit higher than Ergon specs, in an attempt to prevent the slipping.

Pay close attention that the gold ring is installed properly. This is super important. GX2 slipping issues have not been reported...and those that have usually result from a gold ring that is not installed 100% correctly. Double check to make sure.

Carbon assembly paste for sure.
It should be on all points of carbon contact, including your stem.
