GripGrab gloves with DoctorGel™ are designed to reduce the feeling of pins and needles in the fingers, secondary to compression of the nerves innervating the hand Both mountain bike and road bike riders, regardless of level of experience, may suffer temporarily from nerve compression. A prospective clinical study has shown that 70% of long-distance riders experience symptoms related to nerve compression The symptoms can present as light tingling in the fingers but can progress to more severe numbness and paresthesia. The condition is described in the literature as Cyclist’s palsy and the problem arises when a nerve to the hand is compressed between the handlebars and the underlying bone The most effective way to manage Cyclist’s palsy is to take steps to prevent its occurrence. All riders going for a long bicycle ride should wear adequately padded cycling gloves. The placement of the shock absorbing DoctorGel™ pads is optimised to reduce the risk of nerve compression. DoctorGel™ technology is dedicated to keeping cyclists, independent of performance level, comfortable on the ride Buy GripGrab Clothing from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World's Largest Online Bike Store.
