Looking to get some new ones, as may have discovered that the ones I have are causing numbness. Now I know its coming up to winter but looking ahead. I have spesh bg ones, but it seems the glove is moving so the pads aren't sitting tpright.

    IMO it is more likely to be that you are still resting to much weight on your hands and/or gripping the bars too tightly. Try and relax your shoulders, don't ride to tensed up and this in turn will relax your grip and move a bit of weight off your hands.

    Your gloves must be too big if they are moving about that much, they need to be a tight fit.
    I have gloves that have a very small amount of padding that are used on shorter rides (20 miles or so) and I do not get any numbness.
  • The only reason I figured its the gloves is I have been out a few times without gloves and dont get any pain.

    If you think that's the case make sure the new gloves are a better fit. The most padded ones I use only cost £6 so you do not need to spend loads.
