Missing grip security
Grip safety and grip sizes?
Our system of different sizes, the Ergobar and a wing placed far on the outside allows to fully embrace the grips at all times. Our grips are available in the sizes S, M, L. The grip sizes differ in diameter, length and form.
Causes - lack of grip securtiy
Wrong grip size
Cause - wrong grip size
May hinder safe grasping and holding of the grip
Grip size measurement for a grip that fits the hand perfectly
The right grip size is crucial. If a grip is too large, it cannot be completely enclosed, which can lead to cramping of the fingers or the hand.
The personal grip size is important for comfort and safety. That is why we have developed a method for determining the optimal grip size.
Grip size is the measurement from the tip of the middle finger to the crook of the thumb. This is because the fingers grasp the grip precisely by this measurement. The SQlab grip series, sizes differ in range, length and shape.
Our bicycle grips are available in up to three different sizes depending on the model.
Wrong grip shape
Cause - wrong grip shape
Round grips offer only limited grip
A slightly angular shape corresponds to the natural shape of the angled fingers and offers additional support
Angular and two-dimensional
Handlebars are round, and grips are also mostly round because it is simple. But fingers are anything but round: They easily slip on a round object and cannot hold on unlike, for instance, a flat table corner.
The Ergobar is a wave-shaped profile on the front and right side, which produces a flat, slightly angular grip bottom. A perfect fit for angular, slightly bent fingers.
|The grip provides a very relaxed point of contact while giving you the feeling of complete control.|
Too large relief wing
Cause - too large relief wing
Can limit the outreach in dangerous situations
The relief wing must be placed as far outside as possible for a secure grip
The relief wing must be placed as far outside as possible to keep the carpal tunnel exit largely free and reduce the pressure. In addition, the relief wing, which is located at the very edge and deeply extends downwards, provides support and a secure grip.
You will value this connection throughout your ride, but it will be even more noticeable the next time you have to brake hard.
Adjustment of the relief wing
We recommend 150° to 160°. Optimally, the extended
force line of the forearm runs through the center of the
grip. Recommendations between 180° and 165° are currently widely used, but can become dangerous, as the
support while leaning forward cannot be guaranteed
when braking strongly. The SQlab relief wing should not
correct the hand, but merely support it.
