Ergon GP5 cork Performance comfort grips - small
The GP series of bicycle grips are a perfect solution for common wrist pain during cycling. In particular the GP5 Biokork offers up a sustainable approach to ergonomics pain relief with its compound and numerous options of hand positions. Further benefits of this grip are the pure rubber compound, easy to install clamping mechanism, and approved back friendly ergonomics. Not approved for carbon handlebars.
The BioKork version of our successful GP series combines ergonomics, sustainability and a comfortable feel consisting of 40% cork material. The material comes from organic farming in Portugal and meets strict ecological guidelines. In the inner support, 20 percent of the plastic is replaced by grass fibres.
Sustainability is high on the agenda at Ergon. Under the „GreenLab“ initiative, packaging is developed from recycled materials, and entire products such as the GP5 BioCork are made from particularly environmentally friendly materials. All parts of the handle are consistently manufactured in an ecologically sustainable manner.
The GP Series clamping system is extremely secure and easy to mount. Each grip is tightened with only one bolt to reliably secure its position and to prevent twisting. Another important safety feature is that Ergon’s aluminum clamps are cold forged and not extruded – resulting in a much stronger structure. GP grip versions featuring lightweight barends – made of glass-fiber-composite and with grippy rubber inlays – deliver additional hand positions for more comfort.
Minimum friction – maximum comfort: Gripping confidence is enhanced with Ergon’s super soft, UV resistant, durable compound and specific texture patterns. Additionally, your riding enjoyment is elevated with a noticeable pleasing to the touch feel.
Two sizes – for more control
In order to help you maintain perfect control over your bike, your hands should not completely envelop the grip, which is why Ergon offers many grips in two size diameters – Small and Large. The difference refers to the grip width (hand size), meaning a larger hand will have a more positive fit on a thicker grip, while a smaller hand is better fit to a smaller grip. For hand/glove sizes 6.5 to 8.5 we recommend Small, for 8.5 to 10.5 Large usually is better.
Small or large? Which grip size do I need?
In order to help you maintain perfect control over your bike, your hands should not completely envelop the grip, which is why Ergon offers many grips in two size diameters – Small and Large.

The Small and Large label refers to how thick or thin the grip is. There is no difference in the length or ‘wing’ size between the Small and Large. The small grip is best for riders with small hands, those wearing thick padded gloves, and riders riding/racing technical mountain bike terrain.
The large grip is best for riders with large hands, commuting, and city riding. We highly recommend visiting an Ergon dealer to get ‘hands on’ with the grip you are considering purchasing. Ultimately, grip size is a personal rider preference.
The grip range or outer circumference of round, inner part of the grip closest to levers is 92mm on the Small and 102mm on the large. This is the part of the grip you grip with your thumb and pointer finger.
All grips suit handlebars with a 22.2mm diameter common to 99% of bicycles and are supplied as a pair (left and right).
Standard GP series grips require 130mm from the inner edge of the grip to the end of the handlebar
