Bike manufacturers’ heated grips can cost £250. R&G Heated grips start at just £41.50 and work perfectly well with excellent heat output.
The control box can be a weakness on aftermarket grips likes these. The box on the £80 Oxford Products pair these replaced was awkward to use and stopped working.
But this one is easy to operate with gloves on and hasn’t packed up. Admittedly the £250 you pay for manufacturers’ grips includes factory fitting to a standard hard to emulate at home.
You can also now take the easy route of wiring these straight to the battery with the new 2019 premium grips! They switch off automatically with an auto-cutoff function making installation a breeze!
