I've had sram bikes before without the same problem.

Levers are Rival 22, bike is emonda alr.
Is your seat level or slightly nose-up? If it is nose down, you could be supporting more of your body weight with your arms and using your arms to keep yourself from sliding forward on the seat. That could increase the pressure on your hands.
