    Blisters

    What do you guys use to prevent blisters? I get em REAL bad when I ride. Tried switching gloves, glove size, everything glove related, but nothing helped. Not sure if those "blister guard" glove things really work.
    Suggestions?

    Re: Blisters

    You definitely need to relax your grip. I know it doesn't seem possible, but getting your weight forward, always more forward helps a ton in every way. Especially under acceleration you need to lean into it so the foot pegs are pushing you and the bars are not pulling you down the track.

    Then you need to ride often enough to develop calluses where your blisters are. after 5 days riding this week, I have some thick calluses.

    Htfu.

    Those pillow top grips work well. I fucking hate them though. I also hate to agree with doc, but yeah, loosen up. And ride more.

    Edit: one thing is absolutely certain, do NOT get thicker cushier grips. You won't even be able to hang on your arms will pump so bad.

    Loosen your grip More legs then Arms. Once you ride alot the blister will turn into callouses and they will Never bother you.

    Or wear Held gauntlets

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    I tried using PalmSavers, and after a little getting used to (Yay whiskey throttle) they actually work fantastically. Havent gotten any blisters at all.
