Q Is there a glove on the mar­ket that is de­signed for use with heated grips?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I’m af­ter gloves that are thin­ner on the palm, but with ex­tra in­su­la­tion on the back of your hand. My hands are freez­ing if I use my sports gloves, but I hate true win­ter gloves due to their clumpy feel. John Hough, email

There are sev­eral gloves on the mar­ket which may work for you as they have twin cham­bers that give you the op­tion of how much lin­ing you have be­tween you and your grips. The na­ture of all th­ese is that the max­i­mum feel­ing cham­ber is the thin­ner one you hold on with, so that you have a bit more on the back of your hand. The mod­els that tick this box are all the Held Twin gloves, the BMW Two in One gloves and the Rukka R-star gloves. They are all Gore-tex lined, so to­tally wa­ter­proof. I have yet to see a bud­get ver­sion on the mar­ket from any­one, which is un­usual. Don’t go for the Held Air ‘n’ Drys; they’re great gloves but one of the cham­bers is very well vented so you’ll freeze in the win­ter!
