    Ergon GA1

    Are the 2010's completely 'black'? The 'black' 2009's have a 'gray' grip on them. If the 2010's are 'all black', where can I get one from?

    Are you referring to the LS100? If so, it would not be needed for an alumn. bar. We only suggest the LS100 for carbon bars.

    @ ERGON

    Is there a reason that the GA1 Leichtbau in white are not available to purchase on the ERGON site? I have had a very hard time finding them anywhere.

    On a different note, I currently ride the GX3 Leichtbau. I love the grips but want to give the GA1's a try. Which size would be most like that of the GX grip? I like the size of the GX and just can't tell if the Large or small be about the same.

    Thanks for any help

    The 2010 GA1 Leichtbau is not available yet. They are do in about mid-July.

    If you like the GX models....get the GA1 Small. This will be just a tiny bit thicker than the GX grip.

    ERGON, how would you know which size is better to order on the GA1 if no local shops have any 09's I could try on? I wear a size XL in gloves (but think biking gloves run a size small.)

    I have been riding my GA1's for a while now. Great dampening, tacky rubber, good overall feel. That said, I find the bump is too far to the inside of the grip as I tend to grap the outside of my grips to take full advantage of my wide bar (as do most guys I ride with) where the GA1's tend to promote gripping on the mid to inside of the grips. It would be nice to have to options on the grip: 1) standard and 2) bump further to outside of grip for us wide grabbers.
