Hey all. I'm trying to upgrade my comfort little bit during my long rides. Tried quite a few different types, and I know there is something much more comfortable out there. I prefer bar ends for extra position. They don't need to be integrated with grips.
What's your best grips? How long can you ride without feeling discomfort? Please share links and articles.
Here is my current setup.
Carbon bar ends and Ritchey WCS True Grip. Grips are ok...they are comfy for most rides, but anything over 50 is not too comfortable. Their weight is a plus...Almost nothing.
These were OEM Specialized Enduro on my Specialized Crosstrail. I was surprised how comfortable these are, but again, after 20-30 miles it was a struggle.
Later changed to Ritchey WCS Ergo true. Much better grips than OEM, but they are looking way more comfortable than they really are. Did few 100+ miles with these, but at some point I was switching my hand position often, and using bar ends more and more.
These are my current ones Ritchey WCS True grips. Similar to previous ones, but I think little more comfortable. Still quite not good enough for 100+ mile rides.
These are the ones I wanted to try. There is a couple of sizes, and plus a few sizes of bar ends. They felt very comfortable when I checked them at the store. Anyone using these Ergon GP3-L or GP3-S?
