Gerbing heated gloves
« on: February 07, 2018, 01:10:27 PM »
I have a pair of Gerbing XR12 gloves which are very effective, but a bit of a PITA with wires/connections etc...however it is possible to fit batteries to power them...I may purchase some batteries and a charger  :notsure:    but before I do .....

Question is, has anyone used these gloves with batteries, do they provide enough heat, are they clumsy with the battery fitted, and how long do they last on average   :question:

Know what you mean about the wires etc.....but this time of year heated kit is just the business. Can't offer any advice re batteries but have you thought of bar muffs ?

According to the manufacturer it is 1 hour on full or 3 hours on low.

Hey thanks goaters,    :028:   

 I saw that on the Gerbing website with that lady detailing the batteries, but sometimes reality can disprove claims....yeah I know I'm cynical, it comes with age   :008:

Comes with experience too Tyke!  :002: I was checking out heated insoles recently as the Oxford hot grips work fine for my hands but the only part that still gets cold now is my toes. Seems like a lot of faff with all the wiring. Still tempted though...

Interesting....I've heard good reports about heated insoles, but never tried them myself  :002: 

I would say that when I did use my heated gloves (wired to the bike with a yard or so of cables) they were very effective, keeping the backs of my hands warm too

I suffer from cold feet and bought some insoles a couple of years back, they work a treat along with heated jacket and gloves. Yes it is a bit more effort but well worth it IMHO.
All my stuff is by Biketek, but now use a dual controller from Gerbing with the feet on one channel and the jacket and gloves on the other, different bikes have different areo's so having the two channels is handy. I only use the lower two settings normally on my V1K as it has pretty good weather protection, especially with my custom foot wind deflectors fitted.

Thanks Bart. I may give them a go in that case.

I picked up a heated jacket liner to help run the wires to the gloves.  I got tired of threading the cable in my own jacket liner and then having it fall out half the time.

These were the wind deflectors I was on about, they may be worth trying before going for the insoles
