Recently awarded a 2013 RiDE magazine Kit Award in the Heated Grips category, the R&G items are competitively priced at £39.99 so that riders don’t have to break the bank to keep riding through the colder months.

The single-button-activated grips warm up to up to 35°C in just two minutes and will go as hot as 60°C, depending on which of the five heat settings are used – making them equally suitable for chilly spring morning blasts as for autumn evening rides.

Riding at just 30mph in winter temperatures of just a few degrees Celsius, wind-chill can mean temperatures of around minus 20. If your hands aren’t warm when controlling a motorcycle then you’re either not able to concentrate or your fingers cannot operate the controls effectively.

As a universal product for usual size 22mm (7/8in) handlebars, R&G Heated Grips are simple to fit with minimal wiring between the grips, control box and battery. With a generous range of wiring, the Heated Grips can easily be connected to the bike’s battery or hard-wired into the ignition so that they turn off automatically when the bike is not being used.

R&G Heated Grips come complete with fitting instructions, all connecting cables and the control box. Additional special grip glue (£5) can also be purchased to secure them to the bar and throttle tube.
