FOUR CYCLE BIKE HAND POSITIONS
Overhand Grip – This is typically the most common and comfortable position for riders. It feels safe and secure, while allowing you to maintain an upright torso position. This is a good position for building general riding strength and stamina, providing stability, and building endurance and leg speed.
Hook Grip – This position offers similar benefits to the overhand grip, but it provides a significant angle variation in the wrist to fit comfort needs and limit positional related tension pain for riders.
Extended Grip – The extended grip is most suitable for climbing and sprinting workouts. It puts the rider in a position where strength and stamina can be trained at higher levels of resistance while positioning the body in a safe a secure form. Make sure you do not perform this grip in the seated position, as this could put you at risk for developing back pain.
Aero Grip – While this position provides outdoor riders with maximum drag reduction, it does little for the indoor cyclist. It’s important to note that the aero position requires a significant amount of flexibility. If this position feels uncomfortable at first, raise your handle bars and slowly lower them down until your flexibility increases.
