I have a question about padded gloves/numb hands. But, I'll give a bit of background first.
I've been riding for decades as both a recreational and commuting cyclist. I've used numerous cycling gloves over the decades. The problem is that when I ride for more than 1 hour I invariably end up with numb hands for at least half a day afterward. And, now that it is winter where I live I spend at least an hour in the saddle indoors five days per week. I am always changing hand positions on the bars. I'm regularly taking one hand off, flexing the wrist and fingers, hanging the hand/arm out behind me, swinging it around to improve circulation. But, in the end it seems that this problem has to do with nerves rather than circulation. Both my current bikes were shop fitted to my stature. I always buy "good quality" gear. My current gloves are by Pearl Izumi. When I buy new gloves I always shop for maximum cushioning. Yet, it never seems to be enough in the heals of the palm.
What is going on here? Do I have unusually susceptible nerves? Are there other ways of remedying the hand numbness?
