Part of it is dealing the wet-cold combo for sure, and part of it is I’ve been having some troubles with hand strength/pain in the cold but certainly riding steep technical terrain with big thick gloves sucks and being uncomfortable when you don’t have to be sucks too. Another issue is sweat. Unlike truly cold places temperature regulation is hard here - especially in rain gear. Overheat going up and then freeze coming down. Having carbon levers means one less thing I’m insulating against on the descents.
