Oxford Heated Premium Hot Grips - Sports
Customer Product Reviews
I could not ride in temp below 7 degrees, my fingers would feel like they are falling off and now I ride at 2 degrees with ease...need I say more? I had these wired into the ignition and they work perfectly, no worries about flattening the battery.
Grear product, well made and cheap
Great must have bit of kit on a bike this time of year. Well made does what it says on the package and don't drain the battery with the intelligent off controls, highly recommended to anyone and sportsbikeshop were very helpful and knowledgeable as always.
Great product and good value
Had an earlier version of these on a previous bike, really like them. Love the new mode that automatically turns them off, so you don't need to worry about leaving them on. On my last bike I had to use a relay switched by the ignition to prevent a flat battery.
Great product and easy to install
Oxford's Heated Grips have been around for ages and with good reason - pair this up with SportsBikeShop's superb service and you're onto a winner! and when they're on offer like this, why wouldn't you buy them. Great range of settings from a low heat to really hot and with the automatic cut out when the engine's off they're brilliant. Not too long to install either with a detailed and clear set of instructions. One thing would be nice would be an alternative way to mount the controller, like a tube grip or similar but this doesn't detract from the quality and usability of the grips... 10/10!
Worth every penny for cold weather comfort
Heard so many good things about these grips I decided I'd had enough of cold hands in the winter months it was time to buy a set. Fitting is simplicity itself just remember to check you can still move the bars onto either full lock when tidying the wiring up. On my Bonneville I had to cut the end pieces and the grip lines off of my throttle tube to allow the grip to slide on but no real hardship. In use the grips have 5 heat settings and they warm up very quickly. As they have an intelligent controller if you happen to forget to turn the grips off, you dont come back to a flat battery as the unit detects the low power usage due to the engine not running and turns itself off after about 5 minutes. I bought the sports grips and find them perfect and not a great deal bigger than my original grips. The overall quality and build is very good and I can see them lasting a good while. I can only find one criticism and that is the bracket and mount bolts are uncoated and would look less obtrusive if painted black which is what I did and it looks far better.
Never used heated grips before so was a bit sceptical about how good/effective they'd be..... Oh my! Effective is an understatement. Haven't had them above 50% yet because they work so well. Took a couple of hours for me to fit, but somebody competent could probably do it in 45min. Straight from the box it feels like a quality piece of kit, and the grips have a nice solid feel. Simple connector blocks from the grips to the control unit, and then simply wired right up directly to the battery - simple! Whatever bike I have from now on this will be an essential purchase.
Easy to fit. And got hotter than I thought they would. Originally I installed the drips without the super glue provided as they were a tight fit. But when they heat up they do start to twist. The glue provided solved this problem. Plenty of grip. Perfect for winter commutes.
Love the quality of these grips. They were really easy to but I'm not a fan of wiring stuff directly to the battery. The grips come up to temperature pretty quickly although I've not had much chance to try them on the open road, hence a good rating and not excellent.
Have fitted these to every bike I've owned the last 10 years , should've done that to the rest over the 20years before also ,would've saved a lot of pain ! I still find when the temps drop into the minus's I have to use heated gloves as well and the two combined do an excellent job.
Brilliant product with even better service!!
Used this for the first time when I was training for my test and as soon as my certificate was in hand I had to get some! Certainly not the time of year to use them but very happy with the price so can get my bike fitted for the colder months. Fitted to a gsf1250s and look the bomb! Amazing service from these guys as always.
