Customer Reviews for Gerbing 12V XR-12 Hybrid Gloves - Black
These gloves have a real quality feel to them. I've ordered them at the start of Summer so can't test them properly yet. They are quite a long gauntlet in order to fit in the battery packs but once in, the batteries aren't overly bulky and don't really bother you. The battery power level is clearly visible through the clear window in the waterproof pocket so should be adjustable when riding I hope. I ordered the size recommended for my palm measurement (S) but had to swap for the smaller size (XS) as the fit was just too big and fingers way too long. Smaller size fits me perfectly. Can't comment on heating performance or battery life yet but really pleased with the gloves so far and looking forward to cooler riding now.Read more
These were bought for my birthday and they are excellent - just the right amount of warmth and very comfortable. Would highly recommend - worth the spend.Read more
Great fitting glove. Not tried the heating yet but if it's as good quality as the glove build I'll be a happy biker.Read more
Best heated gloves
These are the best heated gloves I have found. Use daily on 7 mile commute and hands are always warm. I use these with the rechargeable battery pack which can be purchased separately. Only issue is that this is now my 3rd pair as heating wire keeps cracking in glove which stops them working. They have tended to last about 9 months so always in warranty period to return and get replacement. Just have to wait a couple of weeks to normally receive replacement gloves. Would have been 5 star rating without this issue.Read more
I should have got these before great gloves but the only problem I can find is the connection I thought it would have been a plug straight into the glove as some times they can disconnect. Make sure you unlock the controller to get max heat, best gloves for the money.Read more
Lovely pair of gloves. Great to actually be able to get heated gloves in a size that fits (xxs). They are pretty warm even without the heating on. Wiring into the battery was actually simple although I did watch a quick 'how to' clip on YouTube first. Definitely makes a difference in the cold weather. I've also bought the battery packs to go with them. The batteries are a bit bulky but I've not had chance to try them out riding yet.Read more
Look no further for warm hands in winter
First time I've been compelled to write a review on any motorcycle product! I suffer poor circulation and riding in cold weather was quite painful. These gloves though are the only ones I've used which keep my hands warm. In the last cold snap, I turned it up to orange (75%) and my hands felt like they were in summer! My last gloves not only fell apart and weren't warm enough, but they cost more than these. Thanks to SBS, the refund more than covered this purchase (bless em!) I'm usually medium fit, but chose large as the advice was have plenty of room, and the adjustable strap means a perfect fit. The wiring job is a piece of cake. The routine of attaching cables from your sleeves to the gloves and then to the bike cable feels a bit awkward at first but you get used to it. Yesterday I was laughing into my helmet at the joy of having comfortable hands at last! Great length too draught free. Nothing to think about here, just buy em!Read more
Comfortable and warm
Got these when it was cold and SO glad I did. Just angry I didn't get them sooner! Arrived next day and great product. 3 settings work great and they are mega comfortable.Read more
Hands toasty warm, battery flat
After a 130 mile commute on a frosty January morning my hands were toasty warm on 75%. They replaced a pair of Held gloves that weren't heated and I always got cold fingers on this journey. Trouble was the gloves had flattened the battery. I suspect a 2001 Honda Blackbird's alternator was never designed for this loading. The fix, just turn off the gloves about 1 mile before you stop. The wiring is easy to attach to the battery, make sure it comes out on the left side of the bike. You want your left hand to operate the switch. The cuffs are very big, I'm struggling to get them inside my coat. So far the gloves sit outside the coat. Finally , the visor wipe is great. Quite a long, thick rubber on the thumb. One wipe and your visor's clear.Read more
Winter game changer
I got these gloves for this winter to help with my 70 mile commute. Connected straight to battery and routed cable out of fairing to connect the main controller. Main controller and glove wires routed through the arms of my jacket. -6 lowest temperature I ridden in and hands were toasty on highest setting. Only 4 star rating as I don't see the point in using other settings other than the highest one.Read more

Questions and Answers
If I buy these with the heated jacket, I would need the duel controller. However , if i buy the wireless controller, do i still need the duel controller ?January 18, 2019
If you preferred to independently control the heat settings of both the jacket and gloves, you will require the Dual Temperature Controller. The Gerbing wireless remote control is a device which only can be used in combination with a Dual Temperature Controller.
Do these gloves come with an adapter to plug into a cigarette lighterJanuary 4, 2019
This would need to be purchased separately as it is not supplied as standard.
Is there a battery cable included in the pack or do I have to buy a separate one?November 3, 2018
A battery cable and junior controller are included.
Hi, The Gerbing XR-12 heated gloves appear to have the hot setting locked out, only allowing the 25% and 50 % levels to be used. How do you get them to do the hot settings, using the 75% and 100% setting?November 3, 2018
If you copy and paste the link below, it will take you right to Gerbings instructions. https://gerbing.co.uk/gerbing-12v-single-heat-controller.html
Where can I get the batteries?September 24, 2018
If you click on "related items" you will be taken straight to the dual battery kit.
Wot length of cable comes with the gloves I ride a bow r 1200 gas and the power point is to the rear side of the seatFebruary 20, 2018
The battery cable is approximately 95cm long and the Y-Lead is approximately 150cm long.
Hi, if wired up you need the supplied heat regulator. If using lithium batteries, how do you control the temperature? I also have a cigarette lighter socket in the handlebars, but am struggling to picture how to connect the gloves safely without loose wire or limiting hand movement. Are you still supposed to go through the jacket rather than straight out at the cuff? Am I over thinking it?January 19, 2018
Each battery has a built-in temperature controller with 3 different settings. Red is 100% heat output, Orange is 66% heat output and yellow is 33% heat output. The gloves can be connected to a cigarette lighter, but we would not recommend it, as you say there will be wiring to tuck away somewhere. The cigarette lighter attachment would need to go into the controller.
My Triumph Sprint GT has a 12V DIN Accessory connector. Can I connect the gloves to to this?November 30, 2017
Yes, but you will need to use the Gerbing 12V BMW / Hella Plug. This can be used for a normal cigarette lighter style socket or the smaller DIN socket.
As these are hybrid gloves do they come supplied with batteries? Also for sizing. On the Gerbing website it says 21-23cm is a large,but on yours it says it is a medium. Which is correct? ThanksNovember 29, 2017
The B12V-1400 hybrid batteries are not included. You require the Gerbing 12v battery kit dual. Most customers find that if they purchase the same size gloves as they already have (using our size guide) the fit is good.
Do the gloves come with Gerbing 12V Junior Temperature Controller included? I assume that is the case (picture of the item) but it doesn't really say in the specification.November 20, 2017
We can confirm that the gloves are supplied with a junior controller.
Is there any way on linking these gloves to the Keis J501 Premiun Heated Jacket via an adaptor?November 6, 2017
Unfortunately we are not aware of an adapter that will do this, sorry. The plugs on the different manufacturers are all different.
