I’ve played around with a number of options over the years- Ergon GA3, GE1, and GD1 / SQ Labs 711 R / plus some more standard options like sant Cruz and lizard skin grips. Of those, the Ergon GD1 (now GFR1)  were my favorites.  But, things really improved for me when I tried the Chromag Wax push on grips. The extra cushion, sticky rubber, and width to move my hands in/out on the bars feels great. On long descents, these things provide a lot more comfort and control.  It’s been a long time since I’ve tried anything with a shape as dramatic as a GP1. The benefits I’m getting from the Wax grips track with your experience in the Ergon. I’m running ibis lo-if carbon bars - low rise with 9/5 sweep/rise.  Thanks for sharing your findings, and questioning the status quo!
