    I am considering purchasing a set of these and was curious if they worked. They are suppose to take the heat from the grips and thermally transfer the heat around the rest of the hand.

    Thanks

    Why the interest from the Houston boys?
    I would be game if they keep the wind side of the fingers warm.

    Hey, about twice a year it gets cold! Lol! I've ridden in icy conditions.... Stupidly! I ride year round and get off late so I'm riding at the coldest times for us. So I'll actually see mid to upper 20s. I have a heated jacket and gloves but if I had some gloves that didn't need power that would be nice for my commute. Many times I'll go to work wearing light gear but come home in cold weather stuff. I'm different.

    It also sounds a lot like 'Marketing'. A few years ago I added a set of hand guard deflectors that mount with the mirror stalk. They work great at keeping the wind off my hands so the heated grips can actually work. I have the Victory Ape handlebars that raise my grips above the fairing. Prior to adding the hand guard deflectors, in cold weather the backs of my hands would be way too cold and the palms way too hot from the heated grips. Sometimes I'll also where the Aerostich triple digit glove covers that work fantastic at keeping the wind from getting through.

    Don't over think this, it's an easy remedy. I leave the hand guards mounted all the time as I see no reason to remove them. The ones I have are a darker than the ones in the link. But they are made and they mount just like them.

    I have glove liners I wear sometimes when ice fishing that are like these but silver

    I call 'em Michael Jackson gloves. They do help radiate heat around your entire hand. Super thin, good liners, not great on their own.

    I loved them... you do you bro.
    In my experience, no gloves really keep your hands warm when it's 30 degrees. People expect too much.

    The deflectors just mount on the mirror posts as pictured.
