    Kryptonite's Security Rating System
    Kryptonite has been able to take a utilitarian product and make it iconic and stylish. Their locks show up in movies, TV shows and Instagram snaps as the boss of bicycle locks. This sort of hype isn’t generated through savvy marketing. Kryptonite has been building a brand of impregnable locks for over 40 years. 365 Cycles can attest to Kryptonite’s...

  6. GP1

    This is the grip that really established Ergon as the standard in ergonomic handlebar grips. The GP1 has a pedigree and design awards going as far back as 2004. This grip has stood the test of time! Currently fitting into Ergon’s Comfort series of grips, the GP1 is a great option for touring and commuting. Inspired by some of our...
  7. GE1 Evo MTB Enduro

    GE1 Evo MTB Enduro
    Marketed as Ergon’s “gravity and enduro” ergonomic grip I was initially skeptical about any ergonomic benefits specifically aiding downhill riding. While I don’t classify myself as a downhill mountain biker, over the years of riding and racing I’ve become sensitive to subtle differences in the equipment I use on my bike. The orientation of my grips being off even a...

My research into proper fit led me to Ergon saddles and I continue to be impressed with how well my saddle performs. As a matter of fact, all of...

    GA3 MTB All-Mountain
    These grips look most similar to the Ergon grips I’ve been using up to this point. But as I found out, their differences go beyond the “winged” shape. Given I use Ergon’s GS1’s, their mountain bike marathon series grips, the shape of the GA3’s was familiar to me but the GA3’s do feel different in the hand. Where the GS1’s...
  10. GA2 FAT MTB All-Mountain

    GA2 FAT MTB All-Mountain
    Intended for people with larger hands or greater demands for trail dampening, I generally don't meet either of those qualifying characteristics. Nonetheless, I installed them and went for a few rides. On my first ride, I didn’t have any initial earth shattering experiences when riding with the GA2 FAT's on my everyday mountain bike, but I was surprised when I...
