All the benefits of the GC1 grip for cyclists with backward-swept bars. But combined with Ergon's BioKork technology.

The unique qualities of cork means that it is antibacterial and hypoallergenic. Cork's natural damping qualities also make it an ideal grip material, and its low density mean the resulting grip is a lot lighter. The BioKork grips use 40% cork, sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal which is certified for its ecologically sound production. The ecological theme is continued throughout the rest of the grip. The inner core is plastic reinforced using natural fibre, which make up 40% of its mass. In place of mineral oil, the gel in the palm section of the grip is vegetable oil based. It is all a result of Ergon's "GreenLab" initiative.

ProsComfortable in use
A family member with a new bike suffered from wrist pains due to the ‘normal’ round grips on her swept back bars.
I fitted these and pain has been replaced by comfort.

ProsWarmth, comfort, greater control, appearance
For swept bars, these are truly the best grips you can buy!
Instantly comfortable, the warmth, shock absorbtion and greater control are really appreciated on longer rides.
Biokork lighter, warmer and more comfortable than traditional plastic, and looks a whole lot better too!

Hi will they fit Brompton Mtype ?
Yes, if you cut them down about 15/20mm.

Spare Caps?
25 Feb 2017
Can you supply spare plastic caps that fit into the handlebars?

The exact Ergon ones that are supplied with the grips aren't available from Ergon on their own, but there is nothing stopping you using any aftermarket generic handlebar end plug to use with these grips.
