Using the same shape and form as the GP1, the GP1 BioKork utilizes the unique qualities of cork. Cork’s natural damping qualities make it an ideal grip material for urban riding, commuting, and leisure cycling. It is all a result of Ergon’s “GreenLab” initiative.
- 40% cork sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal.
- Inner core made of compressed grass fibers.
- Rubber palm section of the grip is vegetable oil based.
- German made rubber compound, latex free, UV stable.
- Right and Left specific grips.
- Forged 100% recyclable aluminum clamps.
- Available in 2 sizes.
- Available in 3 shifter styles/configurations.
- Off-road MTB use not recommended.
Offered in Small or Large, this is the thickness of the grip in hand. The Small and Large are the same length and have the same wing size. The only difference is the thickness of the grip in hand. Riders with smaller hands are best to choose the Small size. Riders with large hands are an ideal fit to the Large size. Ultimately, choice of size is a rider personal preference.
Standard: 2 full length grips
GripShift: 2 short grips
Nexus/Rohloff: 1 full length Left grip, 1 short Right grip
Bought these directly from Ergon - I’m trying to reduce the lining of Jeff Bezos’ pockets. Process was easy and straightforward. Ergon responded immediately confirming order and kept me informed throughout regarding the status and location of my order.
I installed them on my Priority 600 that I outfitted with Velo Orange Crazy Bars. I also taped my bars with Ergon’s BT gravel tape. The grips live up to the hype. Super comfortable, very little dead hand syndrome, if any at all. The cork doesn’t get slippery no matter how sweaty my hands get.
Now I’m looking at an Ergon saddle - I’ll see if it competes with my normal favorite Brooks B-17.
ordered ld size...easy to intall..
great improvement from original grips that came with bike....followed easy instructions....put about 30 - 40 mi on bike, then readjusted for optimal comfort
Ergonomic, great fit, locks securely to stay in place eliminating hand/wrist/arm fatigue. Cork looks cool!
Love them but this set I had to modify to slide all the way on. Shipping app shop was a failure.
I have just changed the 10-year old GP1 on my Brompton and the grips perform as expected. The feel is better for me than the original GP1; I like the combination of textures. I might add the new 2 finger GFK bars, if technically feasible. I recommend the grips highly.
