    What Gloves do you use with your ESI Chunkys?

    Just got me a pair of ESI Chunkys and they feel great with bare hands but i don't like the feel once i put on any of the gloves I have. they all have padded palms, this may be the problem as I'm thinking zero palm padding is the way to go with the Chunkys.

    what gloves are y'all using with your ESI Chunkys? what do you recommend?

    Thanks!

    No additional glove padding here and they feel great. I used to go for all the palm gel inserts and such, but after trying both back to back I realized they don't feel as good with any of the larger grips I like. With smaller diameter grips it might be a bit different, but mostly I didn't like the numb and slightly squirmy feel of the gel compared to an unpadded glove. I don't feel any more beat up or sore with out the extra padding in my gloves (even when riding with a rigid fork) and I feel like a have a more secure grip
