The GS grip series offers an optimized balance of comfort and performance required by top endurance athletes. A completely new grip from the ground up, it uses DirectControl Leichtbau rubber to keep the weight down, combined with a new, more cushioned form to protect the hands better on all day rides, 24 hour and marathon racing. The grip has 3 distinct areas, using different compounds and textures to provide grip and comfort as required. The GS2 Leichtbau Carbon adds a independently adjustable 3 finger bar end from 100% carbon (50 g each bar end).

The Size Difference.
As hand size is different from person to person, Ergon manufactures the GP, GS and GA ranges in two sizes - Small and Large. This difference is in the diameter of the grip. The reason for this is that a larger hand is better able to grip a larger grip with less stress and effort.
This is the same in reverse for small grip. A smaller hand needs a smaller grip to allow the hand to close around it. Of course, this is all also down to personal preference.
