These gel pads are a real wrist saver on rough roads; I would never ride without them again. I feel that they do more for your hand and wrist comfort than any other part on a touring bike, for example a touring fork with a lot of rake, fatter tyres or slightly lower tyre pressures.
The Fizik Gel Pads are designed to be cut down to suit many different types and shapes of handlebar, but they are primarily designed for road bike (drop) handlebars.
– They smoothen out even the roughest roads for your hands and wrists
– They’re a really cheap way to improve the comfort of your bike
– I have transferred my pads successfully over to different handlebars a couple of times
– I can’t think of any reason why you would not use these on a road handlebar-d touring bike!
