GE1 Evo Factory
GE1 Evo Factory
The GE1 Evo Factory was developed for the toughest races in the Enduro World Series. It was an evolution of the successful GE1. The level of performance is enhanced by the factory rubber’s increased durability, grip ability, and texture layout.
- Developed in the EWS
- The choice of the professionals
- Full control
Ergonomic body position
The grip surface is designed to actively support the more aggressive, wider bar technical trail riding position. By turning 8 degrees to the handlebar axis, the elbows are automatically lifted outwards when gripping! This gives you maximum control at all times, even on the toughest Enduro tracks.
The GE1 Evo Factory offers a precise gripping control due to its ergonomic shape and texture layout. This allows the rider to conserve energy that is normally wasted with a greater gripping force on a non ergonomic grip. Available in two diameters (Standard and Slim), suitable for different hand sizes and grip size preferences.
The increase of gripping control is due to the specific texture layout and ergonomic shaping. Having the texture go against the gripping force prevents hand rotation and enhances control for both comfort and performance.
Optimal pressure distribution
The GE1 features an inboard, soft rubber, tear-drop shaping for the thumb area. The grip then flares out towards the outer edge to allow for more pressure distribution. The texture extends to the end of the grip and protects the pressure-sensitive ulnar nerve from being compressed. A better distribution of pressure in this area aids in preventing common nerve issues such as tingling, discomfort and numbness.
Inner Core Construction
The grip wall varies in thickness within the inner core. This provides a specific delivery of damping of vibrations in common highly sensitive zones. The GE1 Evo Factory offers additional damping comfort in the far outer end with the fully integrated grip end. This creates a soft, cushioned grip edge.
The internal aluminum clamp of the GE series leaves ample space for a wide gripping style.
Grip rubber Made in Germany
The material used in Ergon grips meets the highest quality purity standards, is TÜV-certified, durable and absolutely unique in the world of cycling grips. The silicone-based, UV-resistant rubber compound of the GE1 Evo Factory is developed and manufactured exclusively for Ergon in Germany. Ergonomics, product design and engineering – all made in Germany.
