Gave as a Gift

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My buddy seems to like these a bunch.

Do Not Like

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Plenty of individuals love Ergon grips-- I am not one of those individuals. I ride a lot, wear a size large glove (although I prefer to ride without them), and literally never have trouble with grips, but these things gave me hotspots at the transition between the firmer and softer rubber compounds at the heel of the hand almost immediately. It was not remedied by breaking them in or wearing gloves. I also really disliked the raised outer portion, as it adds to the effective sweep of the handlebars, and I make a point of running bars with a shape that works for me as-is. It was a truly joyous occasion when I removed them from my bike. Then, my roommate took them and loves them. So obviously, YMMV.

Ergon grips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These grips are by far my favorite, they are super comfortable, and fit my hand perfectly. I have larger hands and like beefier grips, but these grips are right in between beefy and slim. They provide plenty of tacky grip even when wet. I would recommend Mia’s to every writer whether they are a XC or ENDURO kind of rider.

Grippy and Comfortable, Enough Said!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought these grips for a new enduro build, and althougth I was a little doubtful about the somewhat weird shape of the grip they've been working great! Only took a few minutes on the trails to get used to them. They're super grippy, with or without gloves, and they remained comfortable after several 2-3 hr rides. On all of my other bikes I run ESI Chunky grips and the difference is notable; after an extended descent with the GE1's my hands dont ache like they do with the ESI's. Grips are aslo pretty light-weight and definitely worth the price!

Grip it and Rip It!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

after a couple of trips to Moab i can safely say these are my new favorite grips! i have ridden the classic ergons for years on my townie bikes but they never felt right on the trail. the beauty of these is that the anatomical support is subtle. plus they cover the bar end so you dont have to run plugs. having almost gel like texture they really inspire confidence when the trail ramps up.

Comfort please!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After using grips that tore up my hands, I turned to these from Ergon. They are incredibly comfortable, even after 50 miles on the bike. I do agree with Davis that I don't feel quite as connected to the bar as with a thin, round grip. However, being able to feel my hands after a long ride is crucial so I run these on all my mountain bikes. Play with the positioning a bit on the first couple rides to really dial them in to your hand shape.

On the fence

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

2 rides in and I'm not sure if I am sold. They feel way different than any other grip I've had and they feel a bit bulky and make me feel less connected to the bike. I will provide a better update after I get some more rides in.

Save the hands!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Grips are impeccable and can make or break a day on the bike without even knowing it. I recently added these to my bike and have zero complaints so far!

Best of All Worlds

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Security of a lock-on grip, bar feel of a traditional round grip, subtle support benefits and improved grip from ergonomic profile. I've been using these for several seasons now and I don't see any reason to ride anything else.

Ergonomic grips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

At first I was a bit unsure of these grips, being an asymmetrical shape and just never having used Ergon grips before. It took some playing around to find the orientation that offered the best comfort for my riding position. There are markings on the grips themselves that show you which direction they need to face, and what adjustment range you have. The teardrop shape really is quite comfortable even on longer rides, and the grips seem to last a long time. I'm impressed, would definitely buy again.

Work Well

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used these to replace some original grips. Installation and set up isn't difficult and so far, no hand numbness or fatigue after the first few uses. Happy with my choice.

Connected but comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got these to replace the OEM grips on my Yeti, and sincerely do not regret it. They provide a much more natural shape and remove some of the more annoying trail chatter from your bones. Seem to be very durable, all while being super stylish. Which is obviously important.

Subtle Comfort

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Ergon GE1 grips may be the most comfortabe grips I have used on mountain bikes. They have a teardrp-shaped cross-section under the pointer and middle fingers, and flare out to a larger round diameter under the ring and pinky fingers. They put softer grip compounds in just the right places. the single alloy collar keeps them locked in place, without using any hard material outboard. thest grips are comfortable even if you ride at the very outside of the bar. the GE1 grips will be a great upgrade for any Mountain bike.

Favorite grips for my Bronson

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been running the Ergon ge1 grips for a few years now and really like their ergonomic shape and slightly larger feel compared to other, more basic lock-on grips. Durability has been superb and the single Allen bolt lock on has never given me trouble on my carbon bars. If you're looking for a nice, ergonomic grip that works well for everything from XC to freeride mountain biking, I highly recommend the Ergon GE1 Grips.

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great grips. I just installed them and have ridden once. They felt very comfy on my hands. My hands have not fallen asleep at all since I purchased these.

Ergon GE1 Grips

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Awesome comfort for my big hands, sticky as hell, never feels like my hands are slipping off (even with gloves on).

Comfy and secure

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've taken these on a few rides and like them so far. The grips haven't slipped at all yet despite having only one clamp on each grip.

My New Favorite

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Strangely enough this year, I started having issues with hand numbness this spring when on longer seated rides (long climbs). I switched from the Odi Ruffian lock ons to this grip and have not looked back. They're subtle in the ways they're different, but my hands are more comfortable, the numbness has gone away, and they're just as good when it comes to how well they grip. These things are the bomb.

Very comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are excellent grip, perfecto size. I use it with an Enve riser in a 5010. I use it for XC.

Very comfortable

How wide are the grips? Not the thickness, but the distance from one end to another. For instance, the Odi grips are all 130mm wide.
