We recently took delivery of the new GR2 Magnesium grips from Ergon USA.
I installed them on the newly built Sette Reken Single Speed.
Here’s the specs:
Originally developed for racing using the experience of riders at the Transalp Challenge, the grip body is the same as the GC2. The light 100% magnesium 3 finger barend offers practically the same advantages as a full size barend despite its small size. Its size and shape are ideal for small to middle sized hands (Size S: 6.5 – 8.5) as well as for middle to larger sized hands (Size L: 8.5 – 10.5). The barend and the support platform on the grip can be independently adjusted for the correct angle to allow optimized fit for individual saddle position and riding style.

sizes: S, L GR2 Gripshift® compatibel
sizes: S, L GR2 Rohloff®/Nexus® compatibel

I’ve actually used Ergon Products before. In fact Priscilla and Jeremy both ride with Ergon grips. So that means I’m already confident that they do just great on the review. But here’s the thing, I’ve never used their bar end models yet. Moe also got a set of the GC2 grips to test out. We’re both putting them on our single speed bikes since bar ends are pretty handy when it comes to climbing.
