[Press Release] – The new gravity-focused grip series GFR1 has been developed and tailored according to the expectations and wishes of Tahnée Seagrave (UK) and her colleague team riders of the Canyon [CLLCTV] FMD Racing. The Ergon development team always works very closely with athletes and teams, which enables them to design products for the highest demands within their target group and to be used at the very limit.
The grip has a slim overall shape for maximum feedback, yet still provides an extremely high level of damping through the ribbed section under the palm. The lower grip zone (finger) is strongly pronounced to keep gripping forces at a minimum when lifting the front wheel. The slim inner stop further assists in finding the right hand position while still providing free shifter access.
The high-strength alloy clamps on the inside keeps the grip from twisting – even on carbon bars. The Factory version provides incredible grip and rebound properties. The grip’s feeling is soft but still super defined and precise.
