Ergo-Grip / Ergo-Grip


A change in the conventional way that we usually know handles, the cylindrical shape is replaced by an ovoid one, which changes the position and angle inclination of the hand, which in turn will have a greater support space, improving good blood circulation. Where the palm is located, there is a pad made of silicone that provides comfort and relax the hand.
It also has a hand-grip heart rate monitoring, that consist on two sensors located in each of the handles. With this sensor, heart rate can be monitored while you ride your bicycle. It works by wireless hand grips and a receiver module that shows the results on a display.
