    Gloves without hand pads.

    I have battled nerve issues in my hands, down to a new bike and adjusting fit. But it seems as if as soon as i wash and air dry a pair of gloves they put pressuer on my ners istead of protecting them. Is there a decent glove thst just has abrasion protection with out the pads?

    by "hand pads" do you mean knuckle protection, or palm padding?

    I've had good luck with both Dakine Ventilator and 661 Raji gloves. Both are minimalist designs, just a thin layer of leather material across the palm and a mesh back. I'm not sure the 661 Raji's are available anymore, but here's a link for the Dakines:

    TLD gloves are great with varying prices based on color. I payed around 20 for a pair. Good grip for brake levers.

    Very few full finger gloves have palm pads. Only really see palm pads on fingerless road gloves

    Fox Attack

    Very lightweight with just enough glove to get good grip on the bars and that's it. I always disliked any glove with palm padding.

    There's a sale on SaC. I got the POC Index for $20. I like them so far. Previously had Fox Dirtpaw; liked those as well. Neither has padding.

    EDIT: looks like new dirtpaw may have padding...but can't tell from pictures on line.

    Fox Incline. These minimalistic gloves have been around forever and i've used them exclusively for over a decade. Great FF glove for hot weather. 20 bucks!

    Another vote for POC index. I've had to have the seam where the mesh of the back of the thumb joins the mesh of the back of the hand re-stitched, but that was after a few years of use, many machine washings, and the rest of the glove still looked great except for that one seam starting to pull apart.

    If I didn't like them so much I probably would have just tossed them.

    Very good contact with the bar, minimal lightweight perforated material for the front of the glove, and they are actually pre-contoured into a gripping shape so that you don't have excess material bunching up when you actually wear them.

    Bought a few pair of Giro full finger gloves on closeout with minimal padding. Great fit. My go-to gloves are Fox full finger.

    I'd have thought gloves with pads would be better if you have nerve issues. Maybe just buy no name cheapies, air well, rotate them and chuck them when they get too nasty
