More grip, more comfort and an even more grip
Never rest upon the successes of the previous day. With the GE1 Evo we appeal to all Enduro riders and racers who are looking for more comfort, grip and a precise grip.
The aim of the GE1 update was to further increase the grip on the handlebars while further reducing required strength input. When mountain biking, less effort put into the handlebars leads to less muscle tension and thus reduces the risk of arm pump or numb hands. The results are more comfort, better control of your bike and an optimized arm position.
- Directional Grip Texture – Opposite to Hand Rotation – for maximum Grip.
- Improved Pressure Distribution in Thumb Area.
Optimized Inner Core
- Tuned damping within the various grip-zones due to different material thickness inside the grip core.
- Additional Damping on Grips’ External Edges.
- Multiple Grip Textures for Improved Feel.
The thumb was also taken into consideration. The deeply drawn grip zone and the soft rubber compound further reduce the pressure in this area.
The Grip Compound
The optimization and expansion of the texture allowed us to make the grip rubber even softer and thereby further increase the grip.
Optimization of the Core
In addition to the visible changes, our engineers have also thought about the inner core of the grip. By varying wall thicknesses, in the different gripping zones, more grip rubber could be used where more damping was needed.
The grip surface is aligned at 8° to the handlebar axis and against the backsweep. This position allows you as the rider to “automatically” take the correct position of the elbows.
