All the benefits of the GC1 grip forÂ cyclists with backwards-swept bars. But combined with Ergon's bioKorkÂ technology.
The unique qualities of cork means thatÂ it is antibacterial and hypoallergenic.Â Cork's natural damping qualities alsoÂ make it an ideal grip material, and itsÂ low density mean the resulting gripÂ is a lot lighter. The bioKork grips useÂ 40% cork, sourced from sustainableÂ forests in Portugal which is certifiedÂ for its ecologically sound production.Â This ecological theme is continuedÂ throughout the rest of the grip. TheÂ inner core is plastic reinforced usingÂ natural fibre, which make up 40% of itsÂ mass. in place of mineral oil, the gel inÂ the palm section of the grip is vegetableÂ oil based. it is all a result of Ergon'sÂ GreenLab initiative.
