cheers

Change your grips to a softer type and try different gloves.

You could try loosening your grip. Sounds crazy but it works, it'll improve your riding no end to. Ryan young gives this advice all the time. Give his DVD a watch. You can also find the clip on you tube. Good luck

Talcum powder in the gloves always worked at motocross - to be honest after motocross I've never suffered at trials.....

Are your gloves to loose a-fit?
When the palm material ripples near the fingers that's when the blisters begin...also, I tried motocross gloves with a patterned, padded palm and they were worse than a non-padded palmed glove (think golfer's glove).
For the last time...it's not 'SUPPOSED' to have a seat.

Like your mittens but with a place for each individual digit :hyper:

Someone might be able to quote the trials regulation for gloves but I can't be ar53d to look it up :beer:

Use a pin or clean blade to lift the edge and then remove the harder thicker skin. If you ride a long time with the hard bits you can get deep blisters beneath them. Not nice!

My other tip is get over yourself and grow a pair. This will get you around the issue in the first place.

My dad alway made me ride in big gardening gloves 30 odd years ago. This was to make sure I appreciated the good stuff once I could afford them. I only buy the thinnest and best fit gloves I can afford these days as comfort is everything at this age.
Staying calm always helps. Science always wins.
