The Firstgear Warm & Safe Heated Carbon Gloves are made of grade A top grain, drum dyed, cowhide leather with a Porelle breathable/waterproof membrane. The Warm & Safe Carbon Gloves are DC-heated and produce 15watts of heat at 12.8Volts in each glove. One trait that makes these heated riding gloves unique, is their carbon fiber-molded knuckle protection. You’ll find that most heated gear will not have incorporated protection, but Firstgear has created a glove that will keep your hands warm and protected during cold rides. Some other convenience features include: Pre-curved fingers, reflective piping, and a finger-mounted, rubber face shield wiper. The Heated Carbon Gloves have an elastic wrist and an adjustable hook and loop gauntlet closure. For optimum safety, the gloves should be used with a Firstgear Heat-Troller. Heat controllers are sold separately. The gloves can be used in conjunction with the Firstgear Warm & Safe Heated Liner, or they can be used separately. A DC Coax Y-harness is required when not using the jacket liner.
