Review: Ergon GX1 Leichtbau Grips

What isĀ Leichtbau? And why would anybody pay that much ($39.95 MSRP) for a pair of mountain bike grips?

The key feature of this lock-on grip is the wing like shape of the grip which distributes the pressure over a wider section of your palm. I was having issues with my hand tingling and going numb on descents and on long rides.

The GX1 has almost completely alleviated this problem. I even find the wing shape helps me lift the rear of the bike when bunny-hopping by exaggerating the wrist roll.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
