Ergon GC2 Race Grip

03 Jun

A few weeks ago I published a review of the Ergon GC3 Comfort Bicycle Handlebar Grip. I loved that Ergon grip so much I decided to purchase another one of their products, the Ergon GC2 Race Grip, for one of my old mountain bikes. The Ergon GC2 is very similar to the Ergon GC3, but there are a few differences.

Both of these handlebar grips offer a wide platform for your hands and they both do an awesome job of preventing numbness and tingling in your hands on long rides. Ergon’s Website suggests that the GC3 grip is suitable for touring and traveling, while the GC2 is best suited mountain biking and touring. Doesn’t that just make it plain as mud?

The biggest difference between these to Ergon grips is the size of the bar ends. The Ergon GC3 has the largest bar ends I’ve ever seen on a mountain bike, while the Ergon GC2 has possibly the shortest bar ends you will ever find. I’ve found the longer grips of the GC3 are great for really long rides since they offer at least four different hand positions and the bar end can be used when you are climbing while out of the saddle. The shorter grips of the GC2 really only offer two hand positions and the bar ends are not suitable to holding on to while standing out of the saddle.

Both of these grips are extremely well made and can be installed in just a couple of minutes with a 5mm hex wrench. The list price on the Ergon GC2 is $43.00, which is about $20 cheaper than the Ergon GC3. Whichever Ergon grip you choose I am sure you will be happy. I don’t ever plan on riding a mountain bike again without an Ergon grip!
