Inside Velospring hides a shock-absorbing bicycle grip. The inventors go as far as claiming it can replace a front shock. That may in fact be different, but everyone that has tried the product was impressed by the level of comfort it provides.

Shock absorbing grip „sen comfort"
The worlds first grip with integrated and effective shock-absorption has been shaped to ergonomic criteria. Over a two year development phase the „sen comfort“ was refined and carefully handcrafted from the finest walnut wood. The clearly visible grain makes each grip completely unique.
The wrists as well as the entire arms and shoulder area are intended to be protected by the internal shock absorbing spring mechanism. The extra large wing shaped grip intends to also prevent an unnatural bending of the wrists and therefore avoids excessive pressure on nerves. Pains in hands and numb fingers are a thing of the past.
The grips are manufactured entirely in Germany, even the wood is sourced from Germany. The „sen comfort“ can be purchased through selected resellers and costs 199 Euro.
