Can I make my current gloves phone-screen-responsive

I'm tired of having to stop and pull off a glove every time I want to interact with my phone while riding. But I don't want to replace 3 sets of gloves to do it.


I've heard of threads and liquid treatments that can be used on the glove fingertips, but I haven't seen many non-biased reviews.


Anyone tried anything that was successful?

If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.

I have not done this myself but I would be tempted to try a patch of firm setting silicone on your gloves index finger pad.

I've not used them, but maybe these could be an option too?

I had the same problem. My solution is better suited for summer riding but it is very effective.

I was thinking something a bit more like this:

Doesn't seem to get good reviews but I haven't tried it so can't give a first hand review.

PM AstroBob. He bought some conductive fingertips for his gloves. They work a treat.

Call me flint stone but still have a line phone at home. My wife has got me my third cell now because gone so much and lost the first two or first one as found the second after the third in camp gear. They have no service in over half the places us old coots wind up at. Mine stays in a box turned off.I take it out once a month and check charge. Allso never had a gas card till 2011 when it seemed like a good idea on trips and do use it even around home now. Still hill billy as can be. Have carried a pistol a long time and had years before my CC. Never used it on a trip....or any I want to talk about!
