- IgorI recommend this productRated 5 stars11 months agoA great grip, reduces fatigue, think twice if your hand is big enough for fat grips
Indeed, this grip reduces hand fatigue significantly. You can actually feel that this grip provides an extra degree to your handlebar back sweep - good if your bar is too straight. A bit thicker than a normal one and this took some time to get adjusted to.
I went to Ergon website where they have a grip selector, one enters their hand circumference and the website will recommend fat grip or normal one.
In my case I was in between sizes and fat grip seems normal but I think that I wouldn't have any issues with normal sized grips.Was this helpful?

Switched from ODI Rogues, very happy. These allow you to grip right on the edge of the bars. My hands feel great and I'm enjoying riding without gloves for the first time.Was this helpful?

Looks lovely in red. Fantastic grip levels and hard wearing. Comfortable and reduces fatigue with the (slightly) larger grip diameter. Great if you have larger hands.Was this helpful?
- JohnboyI recommend this productRated 5 stars11 months agoAbsolutely amazing grips
Previously have used ODI Rogues with good results. Wanted to try something different and these Ergon GA2 Fat grips have been excellent. With the rogues I was always aware of my hands gripping the grips, with the GA2 Fat grips I don't even think about my hands on the grips. These are amazing, I find I am not strangling the grips like I used to. These are thick on the outer and definitely feel different initially, but feel normal pretty quick. I don't have the biggest hands (size large glove) but these grips have been a revelation.Was this helpful?

After experiencing my hand's cramp almost instantly on the stock grips that came with my bike, I decided to give these bad bois a go.
I wear XL gloves and even then, the thickness felt odd at first. After a few runs, I realised that the weird feeling was comfort.
My fingers were no longer wrapping too far around the bars and placing excess pressure on the joints.
The only reason they lose a star is that the vibrant red does develop darkened "black" patches after regular use and wear. Would happen with any grip but is worth considering when choosing a colour.Was this helpful?
