Our GP Series is the worldwide reference for winged grips. Even touring cyclists who prefer a setback handlebar setup do not have to manage without ergonomic comfort. This is where the GC1 was developed. The GC1 effectively prevents numb fingers, aching hands and forearms for setback handlebars.

  • Especially for curved handlebars
  • No more sore wrists
  • No more numb fingers

Ergonomic Approach

For handlebars with a pronounced bend to the rear, conventional grips cause the wrist to bend in an unnatural way. The consequences are discomfort and pain of various kinds. The GC1 is anatomically and ergonomically shaped for this type of handlebar correcting positions of the hands and preventing common grip discomforts.

Nerve relief

When riding, your hands support much of your upper body weight on the handlebars, placing a great deal of weight distribution on a relatively small grip area. In many cases this pinches the extremely sensitive ulnar nerve that runs near the base of the palm near the pinky and close to the skin’s surface. Prolonged pressure in this area often causing numbness. The wing grip increases the hand’s resting platform area by distributing pressure over a wider surface and thereby preventing discomfort.

Ergonomic solution

If your wrist is bent too much for too long, nerves, tendons and blood vessels can become compressed. The result is the carpal tunnel channel is constricted, which could place damage to the median nerve. Long rides and fatigue make it even harder for the rider to maintain a correct and healthy posture. The wing design of the GC grips gives the hand more support and automatically puts the wrist into a more ergonomic position, preventing numbness, tingling and pain.
