    It's easy to test this theory. Go for a ride without any gloves and see if it gets any better. From that point you can decide if you need more or less padding in your gloves.

    I haven't used gloves, except for warmth, in years and thousands of miles loaded touring. When things are adjusted for YOU. I just think the different feel with skin actuly making contact with the drop bars helps you use the numeris hand positions. I have had physical tharipists tell me that with straight bars the hands are in a unnatural position in the first place, so good luck.

    It's not just a matter of how much padding, but where it is. Road conditions and riding style also matter.

    Having said that, many people think they need more padding than is probably optimal.
