Knowing the debilitating effects of blisters, it was the goal of Risk Racing engineers to develop a solution that offered full coverage protection to the areas of the hands which are affected by intense friction, rubbing, heat and moisture. In order to create the necessary armor, Risk Racing has produced the Motocross Palm Protectors. The Risk Racing Motocross Palm Protectors are a very thin, protective layer offering full coverage protection of the palm as well as the saddle area between the index finger and thumb. The Risk Racing Motocross Palm Protectors also aid in reducing the dreaded "Arm Pump" by absorbing vibration transferred through the handlebars. Worn under motocross gloves, riders don't even notice the ultra thin Motocross Palm Protectors, but they do recognize the vibration reduction and much needed protection against blisters. Motocross racers, trail riders, and road racers alike can benefit from the Risk Racing Motocross Palm Protectors.

I absolutely love these. Wear them all the time now. They made it through a full season last year and will keep wearing them until they wear out. I'll be buying another pair for sure when it comes time. Definitely notice a difference in comfort while riding between thumb and index finger resulting in less calluses.
I wear a large in every glove brand so I ordered large, didn't even consult the sizing chart. Tried them on and knew right away they were going to be too tight. Took them off and they tore so they were no longer returnable. Tried wearing them on my five-mile commute just to check and my fingers were pulsing by the time I took off my gloves.
Wasn’t sure but after a cuple rides they do what they say they do have always used glove liners from moose racing amd still will in sloppy conditions but these are easier to put on and hands aren’t as hot. Time will tell if they hold up but for the price I’d get em again
These Palm protectors are a lifesaver. When I first started riding my quad, I would hold on with a death grip. I had had ridden it several times without these and got calluses. After receiving these Palm protectors I no longer had that issue. Highly recommended as you are learning. I don't have the same dath death grip I used at first but they still protect my Palms
Have used tape before but its a chore to cut it all and tape it all so I tried these and they worked excellent. I rode Saturday practice with nothing and started to feel the skin going so I put these on for a 2hr Hare Scramble on the following day and there was no damage to my hands. Feels a bit odd a first due to the extra material in your glove but I forgot all about it after the first corner. Not sure how long they will last...2hr race was starting to show some wear but I'm sold.
Just was on a 12 day vacation with 9 days of trail riding. I wore these every day. No blisters, torn hands, or other painful issues. I had a spare pair with me and gave them to a friend who was reluctant to try them. After two days his hands were getting torn up and he gave them a try. His riding trip was saved as his hands didn't get worse. I felt bad for the buddy who didn't have them. His hands were blistered up after three days.
These are the absolutely best things for the weekend warriors. I tried some out about 6 years ago and now wont even ride without a pair. I give a pair to all my riding buddies as well. I don't want them to suffer anymore. If you have never tried a pair...YOU SHOULD.
I've tried a couple different brands of these, hoping it would prevent blisters. They don't last more than 2-3 rides and for me make my gloves feel "bunched" up. Save your money and just tape your hands if you get blisters.
Risk racing palm savers. This product is a literal life saver. Ever since I got back into racing palm savers are a must. I race GNCC, MSXC series and most of the time they fall on every weekend to every other weekend. Blisters would prevent this from happening. I raced a MSXC last season and forgot my palm savers at the house, I raced anyways half way through I couldn’t feel my hands because my palm was gone. It took me 2 weeks to fully recover from that luckily, I didn’t have to skip a race. From that point on I always keep a new set in my gear bag. I raced a 9 hour enduro and 1 set lasted me the whole time and I didn’t have any blisters. 1 set usually lasts about 4-5 races for me. I recommend 10/10 defiantly worth the money.
These are great, especially if you have bad blisters from previous race and need to cover them. Raced a 3.5 hour hare scramble without them and blistered like crazy. I had a race the following weekend and wore these and couldn't tell my hands were messed up. I don't recommend running them for the first time on race day because they do increase grip circumference and will cause abnormal arm pump. However, after that one race, I haven't pumped since. I also switched to gloves that have no paging in palm and they're very comfortable.
I used to wrap my hands in tape, but decided to give these a go. They work great, except for the inside of my thumb, which I still have to wrap to prevent blisters there. Sizing seemed a little small at first, but they get broken in after a ride or two. Make sure you don't stretch these a lot, since they're made of a foam type material that can easily rip if too much force is applied (they're durable if you take care of them). I've done 2 hare scrambles and an enduro (plus trail riding in between), and they are starting to rip enough to where I need to get another pair. A small price to pay for a convenient solution to most blister problems!
I bought these by recommendation from racing buddies. I was getting terrible blisters on the outside, and tops of my palms. I've used them for 2 races now, and they are incredible! No more blisters. One note, if you wear a ring, and normally leave it on when you ride, take it off! My first race with these, I left my ring on, and the material bunched up, causing a very deep and painful blister. 2nd race, no ring, no blister.
These run a bit small I think. I bought a med and lg size. The larges worked great. Half way through the race I swapped gloves and had to use the mediums. With my hands swollen, I lost feeling in my fingers because the mediums cut off the circulation. I managed to wear them all the way to the end, but it was uncomfortable.
You would be an idiot not to use these. every songle person I give a set is amazed how much longer and harder they ride. no more blister. can be improved on index finger strenght as thats too thin and tears way before the rest is done.
Two harescrambles ago I lost all the skin on my palms from blisters. I heard of these and tried them. I had minimal or no blisters after the last race. They work. I have big hands and the L/XL size is a little small. They're starting to tear cause the finger holes are too small. Looks like I might only get 3 or so races out of them. I need a bigger size if there is one.
Totally eliminates blisters, I use these in alteration with the msr full glove liners. These work just as good but don't hold up as long. It does not even feel like they are there. Works great for racing.
I have weak hands and get blisters easy because I have a death grip on the bars all the time. Used to using full coverage glove liners, full finger and fingerless. These feel a little funky at first but you get used to them right away and forget they are there. Careful putting them on and off, they are made of a foam type of material and can tear easily.
These are great if you struggle with blisters- but I've got some advice. They do save you from blisters but makes your overall hold on the machine larger, and you'll find your fingers get much more stiff and tired out. This is magnified if you're wearing thick gloves. I recommend thin gloves like the moose SX1 or Fly Lites if you plan to use these. If racing- practice once with these before trying them to get used to. Good product though.
I had my doubts that they would make a difference and be tolerable under my gloves. They were not noticeable except for the fact that after a 3 hour trail ride on technical trails, no blisters. Typically after these rides my hands are torn up. I'm sold!
I purchased a pair. Tried them on. Wore them for 15 minutes to try it. The part around the wrist broke off right away. They are smaller than you expect. I will try and use without the band going around my wrist in the future and hopefully they will work effectively.
I have never had large blisters from riding before. Last year I rode a two day event and had huge blisters that took up my whole hand. I found these online and figured I would try them out at my next race. They worked great. No bunching or slipping and they added that little bit of extra protection. I order another couple of pairs for backup and wore them to the same race this year as last year and no blisters this year.
