The GP series is a perfect solution for common wrist pain during cycling. In particular the GP1 Biokork offers up a sustainable approach to ergonomics pain relief with its compound and numerous options of hand positions. Further benefits of this grip are the pure rubber compound, easy to install clamping mechanism, approved back friendly ergonomics, and approved for carbon handlebars.
The unique qualities of cork means that it is antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Cork’s natural damping qualities also make it an ideal grip material, and its low density mean the resulting grip is a lot lighter. The BioKork grips use 40% cork, sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal which is certified for its ecologically sound production.
This ecological theme is continued throughout the rest of the grip. The inner core is plastic reinforced using natural fi bre, which make up 40% of its mass. In place of mineral oil, the gel in the palm section of the grip is vegetable oil based. It is all a result of Ergon’s “GreenLab” initiative.
