Over 10 years of physiological studies
The origins: Pascal Badollet
Pascal Badollet is physiotherapist, he lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland, and he is passionate about sports, especially cycling. In 2007, after a long ride with his MTB he experienced wrist and back pain. During his job, he noticed that many cyclists complained about the same issue after their training sessions, also noticing that many of them changed very often their hands’ positions on the handlebars. From this intuition came the idea of creating a new concept of handles that helps cyclists in a more ergonomic and innovative way. Our mission is to correct your position ensuring the best ergonomics and safety in a way never experienced before
The history of SPIRGRIPS
SPIRGRIPS® is born, the team is working on the very first prototypes.
After 7 prototypes developed with professional cyclists the first "beta" product is launched on the market, just for MTB.
After 2 more years of research and developement SPIRGRIPS® One is launched on the market, now both for MTB and road bikes with new design and materials.
Quintessence of the first models, the lightest SPIRGRIPS ever made receive pledges of over 170.000€ with more than 2.700 products sold on Kickstarter and then on Indiegogo.
After the successfull crowdfunding campaign SPIRGRIPS® + is available on the market.
Research and development
Numerous prototypes have been tested using the latest 3D printing technologies to validate the ergonomics of the new handle and ensuring its perfect integration on the handlebars available on the market.
SPIRGRIPS® + are the result of more than 10 years of research. These small bar grips are developed, tested, and scientifically validated in Switzerland in collaboration with professional cyclists.
