Talc and Blisters

Anyone ever heard of using talc in your gloves to reduce blistering? If you have tried this does it help?

Makes sense to me, I put it on my tubes to reduce friction when installing a new tire.



Have you ever tried those disposable rubber gloves ? They sell those at most auto parts stores, and some brands are prepowder.

The key my friend, is to not hold on too tight, relax bruther :)

That and seat time to build up those cubicle Dilbert inspired hands :D

If your having trouble with blisters then the only option is to spend $19.95 on PC racing's gloves! goto www.pcracingusa.com and check out the "under-ware kevlar gloves" they are like nihgt and day difference! Now I can keep riding until I get tired, not whenever my hands hurt! Im loving the life w/no blisters!

Major gaps between rides this time of year in AZ so anything I can do to reduce blisters is worth a try.

Maybe I can loosen up on the grips. Now that I have the MX handguards installed my hands aren't getting beat up with roost just before passing you G-Man. :)

Hope the ankle is feeling better...


I have heard of these glove liners. My MX gloves fit fairly snugly, would the liners fit under them? Which liner did you get of the various ones available from PC Racing. I'm riding MX tracks in hot weather, which ones do you recommend.

I got the "ultra waterproof ones" they were the most expensine ones (right at $20) since I ride in Hot/Humid weather in TX I thought the waterproof would be a good idea! They fit real snug to your hand and Im sure they will fit underneath your regular riding gloves. When I got them in the mail I thought "Man I just got ripped off these things are too thin and little" but after 30 mins of the 1st ride I was convinced that they really do work and are not even bulky! If you are getting blisters I would buy these! Now I wont ride w/o them! Hope this helps!

Oh yeah they also got to my house in 2 days and they came in the mail box (since they are so small)!

The glove liners sound pretty good. Do they help you figure out the size? I just received my Boyesen Flexgrip today http://www.boyesen.com/whatsnew/mcnews.html#flexgrip and plan to try it out this weekend. I'll see how it works and go from there on the liners.

You have a thought there Maicoman, although I hat the way those things leave your hand smelling. Might try them anyway. Should get my Boyesen Flexgrip for my lefthand grip today. I'm anxious to give it a try.

I have gone from armpump to blisters, now I'll probably cure the blisters and get the armpump back, oh well we'll see...

just a thought,,,

i used to work in a photo lab and we used cotton gloves for negative handling

at the time i used to wear em under leather gloves for road ridding

these things cost pennys

so maybe worth a look

I just rub a little vaseline on the calous-prone area before riding. Works fine, and cheap!
