After intensive cooperation with world-class downhill pros such as Tahnée Seagrave, Vali Höll or Rémy Métailler, the GD1 was put through its paces and optimized as the new GD1 Evo.
The GD1 Evo Factory convinces with its conical grip shape - more cushioning on the outside and a slimmer diameter on the inside. The surface profile with a new, super soft thumb zone provides maximum grip and reduces gripping forces at the same time. The slim redesigned inner stop additionally improves the quick position finding of the hand and ensures full operability of the shift levers. Thanks to the high-strength aluminium inner clamp, the grip remains torsion-proof even with carbon handlebars.
A special feature of the GD1 Evo Factory is the unique, in Germany
manufactured rubber compound Factory Custom Rubber. This provides for so far
unknown adhesion and rebound properties. The grip feeling is soft,
but still very defined and precise.
