Koblenz, Germany-based Ergon says they’ve once again raised the bar in terms of ergonomic, pain-free grips that offer relief from numb fingers and aching hands. And, based on our years of experience with their products, we’re inclined to believe them. Building on decades of innovation, the new GP1 Evo and GS1 Evo represent the latest steps toward developing the optimal grip for long-distance touring on any surface. Find a quick look at both below.
ERGON GP1 Evo
As the world’s best-selling wing grip, the Ergon GP1 has long set the benchmark for comfort, and several of us here on the BIKEPACKING.com use them on our rigs. The new GP1 Evo takes everything the brand has learned and presents it in an updated package with a fresh look and several small changes in workmanship and materials. It’s made in Germany, as always, and features a dual rubber compound design with a sleek cold-forged clamp. It’s available in two sizes (small and large) in black for €39.95. There’s also a version made from 40% organically grown cork, the GP1 Evo BioKork, which is also available in small and large sizes and is priced at €49.95.
ERGON GS1 Evo
Designed as a sportier relative of the GP1 Evo, the German-made GS1 Evo features a more aggressively textured rubber compound, lacks the cold-forged clamp, and is available in two sizes (small and large) and three colors (Nightride Blue, Moondust Grey, and Chili Red). The GS1 Evo is priced at €34.95.
