One of the concerns customers bring to our attention most is dealing with numb hands during long rides. Compressed nerves and road vibration are the primary causes of the numb hand affliction, and although indoor winter training eliminates the road vibration issue compressed nerves can be more of an issue because folks tend not to change their hand positions as much riding indoors.

This set of gel insets can greatly alleviate the pressure on your nerves – simply install them under your road bar tape and enjoy the more pleasant ride (well, as pleasant as a trainer ride can be).

You may need a new set of bar tape as well because you’ll need more length when wrapping over the gel. The gel set is $12, and a new set of tape is about the same amount.
