The Ergon grip angle will vary from rider to rider. There are many variables that will affect the Ergon grip angle. They include but are not limited to: bike size, bike fit, handlebar to seat height relationship, terrain to be ridden, handlebar sweep, and glove thickness. We suggest starting level with the wing, and then adjusting during your first rides to get the ideal angle for your riding style. Please refer to your Ergon grip manual for further installation tips.
