Ergon Cork GripsErgon has been taking cues from what they saw at the Handmade Bicycle Show, and came to Interbike with a new cork-composite grip. It features their new, more eco-friendly packaging, too.

    Those. Look. Awesome.

    I’m interested to see their new packaging too…

    It’s more paper than plastic: http://urbanvelo.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/interbike_2009_day3_02.jpg

    I’ll save final judgment until I see the packaging and complete ingredients list, but it FEELS like greenwashing to me.

    “Greenwashing” or not, the old Ergon packaging was a nightmare of stylish excess. ANY improvement is a good thing.

    New packaging is 100% post consumer recycled paper. Our new packaging is 40% less material than the previous…and can be recycled. Lots more info here…
