Thanks for all the great advice, everyone! I kept riding my Rangers, and they did get a little more comfortable. But I was gifted a pair of Dakine Syncline Gel gloves a few days ago, and they might be my new hands-down (ha!) favorite. The seams are minimal, and the gel is actually really great. If you’re looking for something with a bit of padding, I highly recommend them. The non-gel version might be good too, but I haven’t tried them yet.
