    Did a search, didn't find. Grip size?

    on Nash, when they say a grip is 6.5-8.5 or 8.5> or whatever (Im looking at Ergon grips, the barless ones and the ones with the mini bar) what do the sizes mean? What are those measurements?


    Thanks!

    Well it says "small hands 6.5-8.5" and "large 8.5- 10.5". Sounds like hand size accomodations. Must be be sized according to glove size.

    Similar to sock being sized 10- 13, and helmet head sizes 26-30 (?)

    if i am not mistaken. that is the 'width' of the hand it supports ... (measured at the knuckles) but it may be the overal dia of the grip when the hand is wrapped around ... never delt with that style grip ... mostly using ODI Rogues ...
