    Bought these just before heading to Montana for a few days of riding. The riding was great, and my hands/grips were not something I thought about once in 4 rides (one short jaunt and 3 rides with mileage in the teens... long climbs and descents). Natural terrain, no manmade features/jumps/drops save for some smaller ones on the short trail. In short, just the type of riding that Ergon developed these grips for. This is the first grip manufacturer change I've made in 5 or so years, and I was happy to observe that I didn't regret the decision once. Can't wait to get more time with these grips, which means time on the trail, and that's always good.

    I had seen that this grip was co-developed with Fabien Barel, which caught my interest because usually the stuff he makes is very good. I also thought the shape of the grips looked promising. However, having used it for a couple months, I realize it just doesn't suit me. It's actually much thinner than I thought and the padding is very firm/hard which hurt my hands on longer rides. If it were just a few millimeters thicker all around, it would probably be much better.

    I've replaced them with the ODI Rogues which are definitely an improvement over these. They are thicker, grippier, and softer (but not too soft). I may even try going with the ESI Chunky or Extra Chunky for even more vibration reduction and grip.

    So I would say try these grips if you have smaller hands and/or you prefer a thin/hard grip. Otherwise go for something thicker/softer.

    By the way, if you do get these, be careful with the screw. It seems to have very soft metal and so they probably aren't kidding around when they tell you to torque it to an exact spec. My ODI Rogue screws were much more tolerant.

      Comments about Ergon GE1 MTB Technical Grip:

      These are my favorite grips of all time. They flare out a bit towards the middle and index fingers to allow for a more ergonomic grip that prevents hand/forearm fatigue and gives you a better riding posture with the elbows bent outwards. Because of the closed end design, they will add a little length (1/4 inch?) to each end of the handlebars.

        Comments about Ergon GE1 MTB Technical Grip:

        The GE1 grips look great, the oval shape is very comfortable and the newer lock-on style works great with carbon bars. My bars aren't extraordinarily wide, and the grips are still comfortable. I might rate the GA1Evo as slightly more comfortable, but these look better and I prefer the lock-on with these.

        My only real concern is they are a little pricey and the soft end probably isn't going to hold up very well if I brush up against a tree or rock. So far, so good, though!

                        These grips work well on my carbon bars, which was a problem in the past with Ergon grips.
                        These hold up well and seem to reduce fatigue...confident my hands or grips won't leave the bar! Ride on!
