Thumb Over Grip System
BENEFITS OF TOGS
The aditional hand position created by TOGS is comfortable and race proven. TOGS:
- create climbing leverage
- minimise hand numbness, carpal and ulnar issues
- allow access to shifters and brakes
- are small, light weight and strong
Simply, we were envious of the brake hoods on road bikes which are comfortable and efficient.
The only real option for flat bar bikes seemed to be *bar-ends, which just don't feel all that great, are kinda heavy and have safety issues (bar-ends can hook foliage & people and they provide no access to shifters and brakes).
So, we researched the thumb-over grip position that many pros use as an alternate hand position, and improved on it with the Thumb Over Grip System (TOGS) innovation.
TOGS provide the comfortable and efficient hand position we were looking for, while supplying superior bike control, safety, and climbing leverage all in a minimal lightweight product.
