how thick are the palm area because thats where its hurts the most after i ride or during a ride

i dont know what you mean by "how thick" but they protect your palms and inbetween your thumb and index finger lovely.

so id say reasonably thick, but still light and comfortable.

Also make sure you get ones which fit YOU properly.

I have long fingers and find 661's a better fit then Fox gloves, although I currently have some Fox sidewinders which I love

Although for trials, unless its 'effing freezing then I don't wear gloves, if you are calloused up (hard bits of skin) then they can get sore if they get too big/deep (I kept getting blood blisters under mine) you can counter this by filing/carefully cutting the top part of the callous off when required. you'll be sore next ride but fine again after that.

Also try changing your grips, perhaps the waffle pattern oddessey made popular for their grips as this does flex with your hand a bit?
