I have not liked the big Ergon grips for MTB riding, due to the rigid wing creating a push the wrong way when descending, and a lack of ‘give’ over rough terrain. Your article  is a good reason to try them out again. I have been happy with the Ergon and Specialized versions with the smaller, softer wing, like the GA3 you were searching for.  I do not think they do very much for the wrist, but they do help spread pressure over the hand. Note that the generation Specialized [grip](https://www.specialized.com/ca/en/contour-xc-grips/p/155398?color=236577-155398&searchText=25519-1100) that is linked, has a concave surface on the wing, designed to interface with the padded center of their [Grail](https://www.specialized.com/us/en/mens-body-geometry-grail-long-finger-gloves/p/156922?color=248073-156922&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIw-z-16Lv8QIVPHxvBB1WhgnqEAAYASAAEgJbrfD_BwE) glove. Without this glove, it feels far less supportive and natural. Older version did not have this, they were lightly convex in both axes.
