HIRZL INNOVATIONS AT THE EUROBIKE: GRIPPP URBAN for modern cycling commuters and urban cyclist / GRIPPP FORCE now available as semi-finger version / GRIPPP TOUR as individual model from 2018 onwards

HIRZL, Swiss specialist for high performance sport gloves, presents its product innovations.

HIRZL, the Swiss company dedicated to designing and producing performance gloves for a variety of sports activities, presents its product innovations at this year’s Eurobike in hall A7, booth 102 from August 30 to September 2. With the GRIPPP URBAN model, HIRZL has developed a cycling glove for modern cycling commuters and urban cyclists, who are increasingly moving around urban traffic by e-bikes. The portfolio of GRIPPP FORCE will expand. After successfully introducing the full-finger version last year, the popular model is now also available as semi-finger version. In addition, HIRZL will be offering its first individual model in the European market via ESBT GmbH from 2018 onwards. The glove is a modification of the successful model GRIPPP TOUR and can be customized in the area of the backhand.

"At the Eurobike in 2016 we were asked again and again whether HIRZL offers a special e-bike glove in its portfolio. In a readers survey in cooperation with we first asked which requirements e-bikers desire from a glove. Our development team created the first sample afterwards and checked the result again with the readers in January this year. The full-leather GRIPPP URBAN in a timeless yet modern design is the final outcome, which offers the driver an optimum grip on the handlebar so that they can fully concentrate on the traffic", says Frieder Steinle, Managing Director at HIRZL, explaining the development process of the new cycling glove.

The full-leather GRIPPP URBAN SF / FF model in a timeless yet modern design offers an optimum grip on the handlebars while driving through the city and therefore assures 100% concentration on the traffic. While the palm consists of the well-known kangaroo leather, which comes along with the HIRZL GRIPPP™ technology, for the backhand HIRZL uses the smooth, but solid Chevretta leather. A real eye-catcher are the new "beans" foam padding system and the reflective side label.

After successfully launching the full finger version of the GRIPPP FORCE in 2016, HIRZL presents the half-finger version this year.

This glove is the first choice for all athletes who are looking for the best grip in combination with pulling and pushing.

The GRIPPP FORCE was used by Swiss bobsleigh pilot Rico Peter and his team last season, who successfully placed second at the 4-man bobsleigh overall IBSF World Cup and sixth at the 2-man bobsleigh.
