The Biokork GP1 grip has been discontinued, and has been replaced with the new Biokork GP1 EVO. We currently have the original Biokork GP1 available in small, but the large is only available in the new Biokork GP1 EVO.

Biokork GP1 are bicycle grips designed and manufactured by Ergon. These grips are modified by SideStix to make them compatible with SideStix forearm crutches.

These grips provide excellent ergonomics and comfort for the hand. Anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic, cork makes an ideal grip material. During use, the cork surface naturally wears away resulting in an average grip life of 6-9 months.

Sizing Guide: Measure across your hand with your fingers and thumb spread wide apart – from tip of your thumb to the tip of your pinky finger. If the measurement is 8″ or below, then SMALL is probably preferred. If the measurement is above 8″, then LARGE may be best.

    I love my Biokork Grips. I recently purchased my second set of grips. The first set lasted 36 months with daily use. I find the grips very comfortable and clearly, they are quite durable.

    I love the new grips and all the other items I purchased with the sand feet and the new offset cuffs. Thankyou for such perfect products.

    Most comfortable grips I have ever used. BKA so I use my SideStix a lot! These make all the difference in stability and comfort.

    I haven't had a chance to replace my old grips yet. If I like the new grips as much as I like my old ones, I'll be very satisfied. Biokork grips are great. The only thing I don't like is how easy it is to lose the grip plugs. I've had to replace caps a couple of times now. I ordered an extra set of plugs when I bought the new grips and they literally fall right out of the grip tube when I hold them upside down.

    Hello Marilyn, Thank you for your review! We're glad the Biokork grips are working well for you. As we discussed in our emails, the Replacement Grip Plugs are designed to fit inside the aluminum grip tube, not the grips themselves. When we built your SideStix 9 years ago they were designed with shorter grip tubes and larger grip plugs. When we changed the design and made the grip tubes longer we sent grip tube extenders to you at no cost. With your most recent order we included an additional pair of replacement grip plugs at no cost. We also recommended a solution in the event that your grip tube extenders were no longer in your grips that you could wrap masking tape around the grip plugs to make the plugs larger. If you would like to reach out to us we are happy to make more recommendations so we can find a solution. Best, The SideStix Team

    I have been using Biokork grips for the last 18 months and I never felt any pain in my hands and wrists, even when walking long distances. As good as the sidestixx-crutch, the best crutch I have ever used in the last 30 years, since my childhood.

    Have used these grips ever since buying my first SideStix 10 years ago. So comfortable and quick delivery from SideStix to Australia. I've tried buying them directly from bike shops here, but I know I'm going to get the right product and the right size with SideStix.

    After a year of use I see I still have several more months of use in them. The comfiest grips I’ve ever had, a couple weeks to wear in. I bought three pairs

    Love these grips! They’re a game changer for people who use forearm crutches daily.

    These biokork grips arrived right away. I use just one cane on my left side because I've had a stroke 29 years ago. I placed another order for 2 left handed grips last month. Always they Have arrived just what I had ordered. Thank you Sidestix!

    To start, i absolutely love this grip. Gave 4 stars because they do wear out a little fast, but then again i don't stop, so maybe that's why. I used to use the black rubber grip, but with the sweat in my hands, the hands would become really dirty. Also another good thing about these is that i turn them around just so i can use them a little longer. Well worth the price, love the colour. Thanks guys!

    I love these grips so much but I have opted to go for the rubber grips purely because I found the cork ones to wear down considerably faster, even if they're more comfortable. If there was a way I could buy these products locally instead of shipping from CAN -> UK I would definitely buy the cork ones it's just with shipping and import fees I can't afford to buy as much I'd like. Super comfortable and very grippy.

    These are super comfortable grips and have great ergonomics. They were easy to install and are wearing normally. A big plus...I no longer get blisters on my very long walks (4 miles +). They are what you would expect from the team at SideStix. Smart, thoughtful design.

    In 1988 I became a leg amputee and as a prosthesis was never an option, I became totally reliant on crutches for mobility. Up to May 2015, I used multiple types of crutches and I found all cracked under the pressure of my mobility. Living in Melbourne Australia I found Side Stixs over the internet and bought a pair not sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the Biokork Grip. Up till then the skin on the heal of my hand was blistered or was the site of open wounds. With the new grips this problem disappeared. After 2 to 3 years most of the cork wore away however the rubber part of the grip remained intact. In Christmas 2019 I tried replacing the grips. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND USERS SERVICE THEIR GRIPS EVERY THREES MONTHS eg remove the grips from the rod and wash clean the surfaces. I never serviced the grips and after 5 years they were welded onto the aluminium rods and required machinery cutting to break the seals. The metal rods remained intact. I have found the Side Stixs incredibly sturdy, functional and safe on slippery floors.
