Gerbing Heated Motorcycle Gloves: What’s changed?
Gerbing stopped selling its heated gloves range on the UK High Street for 2021. So what are your alternatives?
The latest heated gloves to beat Gerbing heated gloves: Your 2021 options
Gerbing heated motorcycle gloves come in both men’s and ladies’ styles and sizes. Each pair has everything you need straight in the box to power and temperature-control the gloves from the motorcycle battery. This is done by a direct cable connection from the vehicle battery. That tends to be the most reliable and warm option if you ride throughout Winter. And, the latest models feature improvements over previous versions and quite possibly are the best heated gloves out there:
- New MicroWirePRO:
A stronger, more flexible heating wire mesh distributes heat more evenly. Warmer: The new mesh gives out more heat from the same amount of power. And, it is more comfortable to wear as a result.
- Built-in temperature controllers:
Incorporated into the cuff, the 3-stage temperature controller no longer dangles down the side of the bike. Instead, you get a tidy solution as part of the cuff that lets you control temperatures for each hand separately. The 3 settings are 33%, 66% and full power (100%).
- Improved battery-powered performance:
Direct-from-motorcycle-battery is always the best solution for heated gloves. For 2020, 3 of the 4 Gerbing glove styles can take a rechargeable battery kit as an alternative power source. You can purchase different ‘strengths’ of rechargeable batteries; The most powerful battery packs will power your heated gloves for 9 hours on the 33% heat setting!
All Gerbing gloves offer a lifetime guarantee on the MicroWirePRO heating mesh, feature highly flexible heating panels across the back of the hand and then passing down each finger for maximum warmth, and are reliably waterproof.
These are the top of the range heated gloves from Gerbing: The Gerbing XRL style replaces the hugely popular XR12 gloves from previous seasons.
Stand-out features: All leather, deep cuffed gloves powered from the motorcycle battery or by rechargeable batteries (purchase separately).
