The new "Exhale" gloves are working out okay so far, although they haven't had a extreme temperature test quite yet, but I've discovered another annoying thing. I've got handlebar shifters, which in general I really love, but I've found that it's very difficult to work them with these new gloves. I often give up and take the glove off temporarily to shift, then put it back on. This interrupts my pace, distracts my attention from the road, and of course makes my hand colder.
Some of my other gloves work okay. I'm not sure whether it has more to do with the outer surface of these new ones being smoother (they don't appear to be that smooth), or the inside being bulkier, thus harder to squeeze with, or maybe some of each.
Anyone else have this problem? Would it help to affix some some kind of grippy material on the glove where it contacts the shifter, and if so, where would I buy such a thing? Or maybe put it on the shifter itself? It is already textured rubber, but maybe it's gradually become worn smoother in the last 3 years of use.
