Grip size measurement for a grip that fits the hand perfectly

The right grip size is crucial. If a grip is too large, it cannot be completely enclosed, which can lead to cramping of the fingers or the hand.  The personal grip size is important for comfort and safety. That is why we have developed a method for determining the optimal grip size.


Grip size is the measurement from the tip of the middle finger to the crook of the thumb. This is because the fingers grasp the grip precisely by this measurement. The SQlab grip series, sizes differ in range, length and shape.

Our bicycle grips are available in up to three different sizes depending on the model.

The round grip sounds comfortable but gives only a small contact surface. The extremely high pressure on the outside causes irritation of the ulnar nerve. The consequences are pressure pains and numbness on the little finger and ring finger.

The SQlab grip concept
Flattened at the top and drawn forward and back for pressure relief and comfort. Surface is optimized for support and fingers can encompass the grip.
