Customer Reviews for RST Paragon Thermotech Heated CE Waterproof Gloves - Black
Bought for cold spells. Absolutely brilliant. I didn't want the hassle of cables and the rechargeable batteries are grreat.Read more
Product fantastic, I would not hesitate to let customers know how great the gloves are. Only thing was the box the gloves came in was all ripped.Read more
These are nice quality winter gloves. I ordered my usual XL size and they fit fine and are very comfortable. My hands have always suffered in the cold weather but I didn't want to install heated grips to my bike. Also didn't want wires everywhere as with the hard wire systems. Using these gloves in combination with handguards, I find they work fine for me. Great service yet again by Sportsbikeshop.Read more
These gloves are great. Fantastic quality, and really warm even before you turn them on. The construction allows decent dexterity (as much as you could expect from a heavy duty winter glove). Also the velcro strap is nice and secure and the cuff opens up wide enough to fit over my most bulky jacket easily. When you actually turn them on they get toasy warm to full temp in about 10 mins and last for around 3-4 hours. There is no option to hard wire to your bike, which is perfect for me as I didnt like the idea of having wires everywhere and just use these for the occasional blast out or commute rather than daily. My only very minor fault is that on a really cold day the wind chill can get through a bit as a lithium battery clearly isn't quite as capable as a hard wire set up. For 99.9% of the time though this isn't an issue and even when you can feel the cold a bit it's still warm enough, just not toasty. If you can swallow the price I'd highly reccommend.Read more
Comfy, waterproof, good price and so far, fab
Bought for 55 mile round trip commute down M1 to Nottingham. Used for two weeks now in both wet and cold weather. Have used on lowest setting and can get three days use, just, between charges. Warm and so far waterproof too. Comfy fit from the start. Battery pack is under the wrist and is not too obtrusive, but does make getting glove over jacket cuff a bit fiddly. Got them on 20% off offer, so good price. Overall, comfy, waterproof, good price and so far, fab.Read more
Excellent value compared to rivals
These are very good value gloves. Got them on special offer from SBS. I tried on the Racer Heat 4 gloves and an offering from Gerbing. The Gerbings gave off the most warmth, however at £290 after buying the batteries, I wasn't convinced especially as the comfort wasn't that great. The shape/form of the RST gloves felt much more comfortable to me and the heat from them was good enough. I have used these along with inner gloves on 25+ mile rides at 5C with a chilly wind and felt fine. So the commute to work would be no problem. The button is easy to operate. They are quite tight and fiddly to put on but once on, they are comfy enough. The cuff of your jacket can tuck into the glove and the battery didn't feel like it was digging in once it was moved into place. The supplied charger will get both batteries charged at the same time too. I've not used them in rainy conditions yet but looking at the construction, I can see they would see off most UK rain showers with ease. If you have/ride more than one bike, then heated gloves make swapping over nice and easy. Plus you only really need these for the coldest weather so they should last for a long time. A must for the UK biker clothing wardrobe.Read more
Had them for a few weeks. Use for a 20 mile commute, all types of weather and speeds up to 60. Had rain and 2-3 degrees. No problems with leaks other than the inevitable water down the sleeve. Usually don't bother with the heater unless it's super cold, the insulation is good enough on its own. Don't expect hot when you are moving, but my fingers haven't been cold since I've had them and I've had trips where I've not been able to feel my fingers prior to buying these. Feel well made. Look good. Would recommend.Read more
Although I am extremely happy with the quality
The true rating is between 3&4 The gloves are extremely good quality Soft & supple comfortable and bin heavy rain they haven't let me down. The heat is more apparent to the back of the hands and although heat is generated around the fingers I think it's not enough on its own. With my heated grips on full power and the gloves the same I have been comfortable in +2 above freezing on a mixture of motorway & town riding I Got these a a better than normal£189 on black Friday and if I paid full price I would have been very disappointed. But I am happy with all my other Rst clothing that I recently purchased and have already put it through some heavy prolonged raii and cold weather and it's passed every expectations with top marksRead more
Hopefully these will keep the backs of my hands warm - heated grips don't!! Look good quality and are a good fit - if it ever stops raining they will get their first outing. Up to the usual RST high standard.Read more
Good first impressions but short-lived
The Good: Great next day service from SBS. Gloves appeared high quality and well-made. Charged batteries overnight ready to test on my daily 3-hour round trip commute in 4C. Found it easy to fit batteries and the gloves fitted OK over jacket sleeves. The Bad: Disappointed with warmth generated on highest setting. As others have commented, the sensation from the gloves was more a feeling of hands not being cold rather than any positive feeling of warmth. I can't see that the lower two settings would ever be useful in UK winters. The Ugly: On the return leg of my first commute the power cut out from the left glove (after approx 2hr 20 mins riding in total). I rode the remaining 40 mins home with only the r/h glove heating, and tbh I could only notice a very slight difference between the two. Arriving home after 3 hours, the battery warning light on the r/h glove had started to flash. I returned for a refund (thanks SBS) and will be opting for a different wired pair to replace these. Not sure if I got unlucky with this set based on some of the other positive comments, but unfortunately can't recommend based on my experience.Read more

It's no wonder that the RST motorcycle clothing range is now one of the most popular ranges of bike kit in the UK. Their continued investment in racing, with a particular focus on BSB, has meant a constant development of product, which has translated directly to their road range. With the help of some of the biggest names in the BSB paddock, such as Tommy Hill, John Kirkham and Stuart Easton, RST have pushed the boundaries of what can be delivered through a brand that remains amazingly good value for money.
It also helps that the Derbyshire based design team are passionate about what they do; rigorously testing all RST clothing themselves. The team insist on riding all year round, despite the British weather, in order to put the RST textile range through its paces, and the fact that the team are keen track day enthusiasts, provides helpful real world testing of the RST leather range too. Their continued passion for design and innovation is highly apparent in this year's range and when you add to the mix the constant stream of positive feedback from our customers, it's easy to see why we have always covered the entire range of RST motorcycle clothing, and will continue to do so.
