Hi, whenever I ride my halfbike, I get blisters inside my hands and on the side of my thumbs. Are there any special gloves you can recommend to protect me. The gloves I am using right now, don't do it. Looking forward to your kind help Frank

Hi Frank, long time no see, hope you are fine. Back on topic: When I started with my halfbike I got blisters on my hands in the first weeks because I put too much weight on my hands and the handle bar. That happened because my body and legs muscules were not yet used to ride that long. How often per week do you ride? Do you ride as a training or do you use it for commuting and how long (time and distance) do you ride per training? Cheers, Thilo

Hi Frank, This is quite normal, as in the beginning people tend to hold on too hard to the handlebar, while your hands should be relaxed. Of course, this comes with practice, so you'll get there :)

Hi Frank, Jut buy a pair of TRAINING GLOVES with good material quality. Some good ones have breathable material which helps to reduce sweat, comfort fit and most importantly it reduces the friction between your hand and the handlebar, further enhancing grip experience in case you got blister again.

I think the solution is changing the handlebars. For comfort, stability and maneuvrability I replaced the handlebars with the ones on the picture. They give a much more ergonomic grip and I don't need gloves anymore

Well, it's a cheap set of noname handlebars. Around 7$ a set. Here's a picture of them. But they do their job excellent.

Would you mind telling us where you got those?

Seems like Aliexpress or any other platform with Chinese suppliers. Just look for bar ends in the search.
