    Heated Gloves

     Hello Everyone,

    I am new to Scootering and would like to know if someone could tell me the best place to buy heated gloves. I have discovered that getting heated grips on my georgeous SYM 250 Firenze are a tad expensive at $300. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.Smile

     Some here but i would have thought you could get heated grips fitted cheaper than buying gloves & getting the power fitted to power them

     How often do you think you would use them? What about the heat pads you can buy from camping stores? The heated grips are LOVELY & worth every penny if you're regularly riding in cold temps.

     The grips themselves are $130 but the labour to wire them in is $170. I have seen gloves with batteries in the UK for around $70 Aus.

     Hi, I am addicted to my Scooter so I try and ride as much as I can so this can be several times a week and it is damn cold all the time at the moment. Got to love Winter LOL.

    Yes, do. I had no idea that such things existed! It'd be great if you haven't got enough electrical "juice" in your scooter's system to drive the heated grips (eg. a vintage Vespa with a 6v non-battery system).

    Bear in mind that most of battery powered gloves are powered by the battery on your bike/scooter. In other words, you still have to wire yourself in, and your alternator still has to generate enough juice to power them. In this respect they are no different to heated grips... that's fine as far as it goes, but what I am interested in are gloves powered by THEIR OWN little batteries, so they are completely independent from your vehicle or the rest of your gear. They also exist but they are a lot rarer, and by all accounts not quite 'there' yet. Although I'm hopeful they will mature to the point of becoming useful within another year or two at most.

    LOL, these are FISHING gloves!!! I would not recommend using them on the bike... and I am willing to bet you will not find biking gloves for 19.99 (which, btw is in U$, plus you'd probably pay a bit extra for postage)
