For those of you that suffer from cold hands while you ride, freeze no more as A'ME has unveiled a new line of heated bike grips. The Heated Ergo Tri and 1.3 Tri mountain bike grips will make those winter rides or cold wet morning commutes that much more enjoyable. Comfortable hand temperatures can help reduce fatigue and maintain finger dexterity, giving you better control of your bike.
The heated mountain bike grips feature micro process technology and internal sensors that allow you to easily adjust the temperature with the simple push of a button. The bike grips come with 6 different temperature settings indicated by an LED light. An external battery pack is used to run the heaters and mounts to your stem or top tube.
The heated bike grips are made in the USA of a specially formulated Vulcathane compound which produces a tacky, durable surface in an ergonomic design. The bike grips feature A'ME's popular triangle pattern, making them even more comfortable to hold onto.
Installation is made simple through the single clamp-on design. You simply slide the grip on and tighten a single screw. The connectors are weatherproof so you don't have to worry about them shorting out as you ride in the rain. The grips work best on carbon bars, as carbon won't sap away most of the heat like aluminum.
The heated mountain bike grips cost $129.95 with the battery pack and charger sold separately for another $190. If you don't want to fork out the cash for the extra battery, A'ME sells jumper leads that you can use to connect to your own battery. The bike grips can be bought from the A'ME website.
