Ergon GP1 BIOKORK
Cork’s natural damping qualities also make it an ideal grip material, and its now density mean the resulting grip is a lot lighter.
The GP1 BioKork uses 40% cork, sourced from sustainable forests in Portugal which is certified for its ecologically sound production. This 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.
The clamp can also be 100% recycled. It is all a result of Ergon’s “GreenLab” initiative.
