Grips, like seats, can often be afterthoughts in the bike industry - which is strange because those contact points are where your body meets the bike. Ergon is a company that works with Doctors to design grips that are remarkably comfortable, and displace weight better - so that you can ride longer. They are the company that invented the wider grip that cradles the inside of your hand, relieving pressure - especially if you have a bike that tilts you over into a performance position. Even better, the grip actually bolts onto the handlebar, so there won't be any grips slipping anymore. Finally, the grips are made in Germany, using real rubber, and that provides grip and cushion that are out of this world.
