Fox Ranger Gel Gloves

On my single speed I was getting sore palms from longer rides. I thought some padded gloves might help. I found a pair of Fox Ranger Gel gloves in my size and purchased those. I was right. They do help.

I wore them on a big ride yesterday. They were great for the climb portion of the ride. But not so great for the descent portion. The bit of padding at the base of the fingers gets pounded into my hands on the rough descending trails, with extra weight on my hands from going down hills.
I almost need to carry a second pair of gloves for the descent - ones without padding. I’ve decided not to wear them for big rides in the mountains any more (as much as I like them for general riding).

I never would have expected that.
