Don't take this the wrong way..... But it's like golf, you squeeze to tight and hit too many- your'e gonna get the blisters. But eventually, those blisters turn into calluses. You can try the moleskin tape too, under the glove-stick it to the hot spots on his hands. It helps a little.

Maybe look for other gloves that have more/better padding in the hot area's. I know if the glove is too tight or too lose, it will cause a hot spot. Let us know what works-

it is from holding on too tight or the glove being too big..... i had gloves that were too big, then got sum that fit and didnt really get em so i think that could be the problem

Definitely change the grips. Stock grips suck. The more the cushion the better the push--..., :lol ...I mean the better the grips will comform to your fingers/palms and give to pressure.

Check the glove size, make sure they fit right. Not too tight/loose.

Try getting Renthal soft compound grips for the kid. I use them myself, and my hands used to blister badly, but I switched to these and no more. :woo

the renthal ones would probably work pretty well for the kids as they're a bit smaller. i prefer the oury grips, but i have pretty large hands. they have a lot of cush to them.

I have a pair also, and love'em, but they do wear faster than the other compounds. :sonic

I've been a drummer since 5 (i'm 34 now) and i have learned that blisters lead to callouses(i've ha d thousands over the years),(which is good) i know blisters suck, but in the long run( i week or so) they will callous up, and he\she wont hurt anymore:)~Let them dry naturally,DON'T PICK AT THEM!!!!

PS i know we hate to see our kids hurt, but they are the most resilient to pain then any or all of us combined!!I have 2 girls(5-8), so dont take this as a person thats being harsh:)~and yes they play the drums also,,hehe

Tell him life is no bed of roses and quit being a sissy girl!


Seriously though, they're a part of riding. His hands will get tougher.

u could get softer grips .......but anyway if your son is getting them y does it bother him so much that would be the least of your worries cause he will flip his quad and do many other hurtful things dont take it personally

He's not complaining about them, he ain't no sissy girl, dude, as a parent I'm trying to prevent them, we've never encountered them in years of quading until we bought the YFZ's

I'd check the fitting of the gloves first. After that, decrease the length of his rides. That will give his hands a chance to callouse up a bit. As his hands become less of a problem, increase the length of the rides. Ride, rest, ride, rest. If the gloves are the right size, his hands will toughen up shortly.
