Maybe a more cushioned type bar tape would help too? I use a more cushioned one on my road bike setup.

Not every wrist/hand works well with gel. My hands are naturally well-cushioned and gel makes things worse. I use a non-padded (as much as one can find them) bicycling glove. Years ago I bought a whole bunch of the Specialized gloves I wear, as they took them out of production. I still have a few pairs left - hope to last me a long time.

I have been using those firm grip from HD for quite some time. They transition well into work gloves.

3.2mm thick bar tape WILL make a difference no matter what type of gloves or hands you have. That is all............
