Get A Pair
Looking for a way to prevent the pain of riding in the cold, I found these, dozens of great reviews and a great price. So I went ahead and bought some from the ever excellent Sports Bike Shop. I measured my hands according to SBS guide and was in the upper end of medium, however I had to change the gloves for a large size, no fuss from SBS, my hands are medium measured around the palm, but at 210mm from wrist to finger tip, are large, so be careful when ordering. The quality and attention to detailin these gloves is superb and the fit is tight but comfortable. Yes its a bit of a faff getting them on and hooking up, but hey, as soon as connected the warmth is there, in fact they are warm before you connect the power supply.So warm in fact I removed my muffs and haven't turned on my heated grips, right down to 3C.Ive wired the plug in and it pokes out under the seat on the LH side, the controller sits on my left thigh. Ive wired the long wires inside the lining of my leather, and the connectors just exit from the wrist gusset, so I can push them up there out of the way of my breakfast. The controller sits in the LH hip pocket when not riding, perfect. An excellent piece of kit, wish I'd bought some years ago. Get some, you wont be dissapointed.Read more
Best Glove I Have Had So Far
Very warm even with the power off. Very easy to install on the bike. If I had any criticism it would be I would like the cable to be another 150 - 300mmn longRead more
Cannot fault these
My wife is my love and passenger and unfortunately she has to take Warfrin for her blood which means her blood goes thin and resulting in her feeling the cold a lot more faster than the norm, Anyhow after buying thick winter gloves,silk liners, then hot pads you hold on to I thought I'd shell out and try these. Normally we would be 30min in the saddle till she would be feeling the chill, but with these and the BMW canbus adapter riding is so much comfier for her. They do take a bit of getting used to as regards of un-plugging before you get off and reconnecting when you get back on but you can soon get in the habit. Very warm on medium and (So far) waterproof)Read more
You have to consider the pros and cons of what you are buying here: firstly, a very good quality leather glove, very well made without an skimping on material;, secondly water proof; thirdly, well insulated and fourthly heating which works well to keep you hands comfortable on a winter ride; they are also more economical than fitting all my three bikes with heated grips. On cons side, they are bulkier than unheated gloves which was noticeable when using the clutch and having to change hand position; the battery is also very bulky but once the glove is on and you are riding it's not that noticeable; and lastly - they are very expensive. I've yet to try them in pouring rain but assume they will keep my hands dry as well as warm. Back to cost - if this is a consideration then I wouldn't get them, I've lasted thirty-five years of motorcycling without heated gloves but decided this year to stop having to grit my teeth and put up with cold hands. To be good value they'll need to last five years without any faults in my book, so I'll have to wait to see if they end up being a good buy.Read more
I'm used to cheap heated gloves so when I bought these I was amazed. Excellent build quality and even without any heating they are warm. They don't get hot like cheap gear do but they're so well insulated they don't need to. They are waterproof and are brilliant at keeping the chill at bay (thoroughly tested) hooking yourself up every morning with the cables can be a pain but then forgetting to charge your gloves are worse!! You can buy a battery pack if you want & they have little slots ideal for a debit card etc so you can buy petrol with contactless without the hassle of taking all your gloves off. I'm so happy I spent the cash and got them rather than going for the usual cheap rubbish that only last a year or so. And finally these have great warranty options.Read more
These gloves are simply the best I've used on the market, excellent value for moneyRead more
Actually looking forward to the cold now!
Not had a chance to test to the max, but these gloves fit well and most of all, they are warm! I have used in temps between 0 and 10C so far, and not even had to turn them on. Granted, at the lower end of those temps, then ride was only circa 30 mins ... so I'd venture a guess that a much longer ride would only require the lowest temp setting.Read more
Brilliant Gerbing 12v XR-12 gloves
I suffer from the dreaded white finger when riding in even moderately cold weather. I have Honda three stage heated grips, which usually means hot palms and still very cold fingers. I have just tried these Gerbing gloves and I was amazed! You don't notice hot hands just very comfortable fingers and thr gloves are not as bulky as normal winter gloves. Wiring into the bike battery was easy and I really wish that I had bought a pair a long time ago. I would really recommend these gloves.Read more

Questions and Answers
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.
