          actually for me they get less tacky because my hands get dry, dry = slippery, less grip whiled pushing. i use cornhuskers lotion during day and thick ass lantiseptic at night. really makes the difference

            ef, I can only assume you have some type of coated handrims such as vinyl or foam rubber. I've found if I wipe them down in the morning with a wet facecloth it gets the dust, powder, oils, etc. off the handrims. It is much easir to push. Pushblacks are great too but I think the neoprene gets too hard in the cold.

              Pushblacks are still offering the best grip in winter from my experience, but the other suggestions will help too (well hydrated hands and clean pushrims).

                  Gloves. I use Nike Golf gloves until it gets really cold, then I switch to Bob Allen lightly insulated shooting gloves.
