Ergon GP and GS Series Grip Sizing Explained

Since hand sizes vary from person to person, the GP Series and GS Series grips are offered in two sizes; Small and Large.

These sizes refer to the gripping circumference. The Large size is a thicker grip, and the Small is a thinner grip. Two size options offer better hand closure around the grip surface. These size differences have a direct impact on the overall handling of the bike, as well as comfort.

Problem: Excessive curvature of the wrist leads to undesired kinks in the carpal tunnel nerve. This results in a burning pain in the hand or forearm.

Solution: By correcting the hand position, the carpal tunnel nerve is relieved and pain is eliminated.
