The last year of making Knuckle Warmers have taught me a lot. What worked for me may or may not have worked for others. What I do have is a very good basic design and this basic design I have can be modified to many other motorcycles besides Harley Davidson.
Here is a list of other products that I know of that offers either some protection for the hands, or offers a way to keep your hands warm. Hippo-Hands, Winterhands, Gerbings Heated Gloves, Heated grips, Thick winter riding gloves.
From what I have read and learned about Hippo-hands & Winterhands. They are very good products. What I did not like about these products was: they block the view of the controls, they are big and you have to install brackets to keep the wind from pushing them back against the brake and clutch, to big and making them hard to carry on the motorcycle when they are not needed. I think they are ugly and really don’t go with the design of a motorcycle.
Gerbings Heated Gloves & thick winter gloves: First, anything heated one has to install controls or wires to the motorcycle. And then this leaves the question of where to install the control, not a lot of option’s on some bikes. A lot of people can do this themselves but a lot can’t, plus the cost of all this on top of the price of the gloves or grips. All the heated gloves I tried didn’t fit my hands and made my hands so bulky that when riding my hands would cramp, and the same with a thick winter glove that really didn’t keep my hand warm.
Heated grips: What I have heard about heated grips sound good other then the fact that they provide very little protection for your hand. They provide heat for the palm of your hand but I have heard that the top of your hand still gets cold. I would like to try a heated grip under a Knuckle Warmer, I think this would provide the protection from wind and rain, plus keep the hand warm. I know police officer’s that have heated grips under their “Winterhands” and have heard that it’s great.
I look forward to hearing about your experience with the Knuckle Warmer, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us through contact me page.
