These are the grips that Ergon makes. They come in both men and womens specific models and they are designed for use with either trigger or twist shifting. These grips are designed for the all day racer who is looking to keep from losing sensation in their fingers. One of the reasons I wanted to get these grips is because their design keeps you from losing sensation in your hands and they allow you to grip, rest, and climb with more comfort. Mine should be here on Tuesday and I can't wait. More updates on how they work for me this season.
