We’re converts to the slightly odd looking grips from Ergon; long rides just don’t seem as fatiguing with hand pressure spread and sensitive nerves given an easier time. These new GX2 models feature lighter rubber, updated integrated bar ends and tweaks to the shape of the ﬂared section.
They’re more angular than the old curvy ones, ﬁlling our hands more accurately and making the transition to the climbing position on the adjustable-rake carbon bar ends faster. They work well separately, but pair them with Ergon's new HX2 full-ﬁnger gloves and you have a match made in long-ride heaven.
