Ergon GX2 Leichtbau Carbon Users???
 
Anybody using these grips that would care to give me a review? I need new grips and I've been intrigued by these for some time now. I will be using them for XC and a couple of endurance races that I'm planning on competing in. Let me know what you think of them.

Thank you,
Mike

I really like my GP1's, which are a similar shape but without the bar-end. Very comfy for long rides. Sorry, can't commend on the GX2's specifically.

:notamused: bar ends.

I guess whatever your preference is.

Ergon GX2 Leichtbau Carbon Users...That's a pretty powerful handle, do these fit into a mountain bikers budget?

Not the carbons, I have the regular GX2's on my Trek. I love them. The ends are more a knuckle protector than a bar end, but in that respect they work well.

Thanks for the feedback. I don't normally ride with bar ends but find that I like to rest my palms on the end of the bars to change my grip and rest my hands during long rides. I'm hoping that the bar ends will allow me to relieve the pressure on the palm of my hands when I do this. If it doesn't work out they can go up on EBay with the rest of my "sounded like a good idea at the time" bits.

So you were the one selling those camo-colored water bottles? :D

Same Here.

I have mild Carpal Tunnel Syndr. and these grips reduced my numbness significantly.

Personally, I don't like them, tried them. The contour of the ergon grips get in my way.

The ergon grips are a love/hate thing. I know a bunch of people that love the ergon grips.
