Does anyone have a suggestion for half-finger riding gloves?
I'd like some gel gloves, and have tried the ones by Terry,
but they don't seem to have enough gel. I've looked at Nashbar
and Performance sites, but would like some recommendations
from someone who's actually tried them out. Thanks!

Pearl Izumi Gel-Lites - the fit is fantastic, and I use them all the time for 24 hour races.

Thanks - I found them on clearance at Campmor
for $17.

WOW! That's a great price! I hope they work as well for you as they do for me:D

If the PIs don't work out, try Specialized Body Geometry gloves. They solved most of my numbness/tingling issues. Not cheap, but lots of padding right where you need it (where most of the nerves of the hand are most affected by cycling), and not a lot of extra padding where it isn't needed.

Only glitch is that I haven't been able to find them anywhere other than Specialized website, so there's no opportunity for comparison shopping. I'm sure SOMEONE else must sell them, though.

For those who have used the Specialized Body Geometry Gloves, did you find them immediatly comfortable, or did they have to be worn-in a little.

I have had my first ride with them yesterday, and I am so-far disappointed. They protect the ulner nerve, but I am being rotated onto my thumb more, which is now going very numb.
