No matter how many different gloves I try or how many layers of gloves my hands always freeze in 35-40 degrees (average winter temp here)in less than an hour, so I figure some really big/nice handguards that were made primarily for wind protection should help. not too worried about their condition, scratches and all that are expected and are fine as long as it's not in such bad shape that the wind comes through / and or falls apart or any of that.



It's all in my hands now. If I can stop them from freezing, I can finally stay warm and enjoy riding year round!



anybody got some they don't use anymore and could use some extra cash?



thanks

In a nut shell the bigger the better. I specifically bought Moose Racing hand shields to go with the Moose Hand Guards because the plastic shields came in a larger size as well as the more diminuitive regular sizes. This set up was not cheap but it did help considerably. With my primary emphasis on warmth I also bought a pair of ballistic nylon (or something similar) extra large covers (also moose racing) made for atv use. They deflect more wind, are easy to attach with a velcro strap and nylon tie (to your existing hand guards). They work but as pointed out by someone more vain than smart (they look a bit dorky). I actually have not used them much but I would if I had prolonged winter time rides (my average ride in winter is less than three hours and usually 60 min then a warmup and another 60 or so min. Check the Rocky Mtn ATv site for the ballistic addons from moose racing, but normal hand guards are available anywhere (just watch for size and holes). Note: I would not try to use the atv addons without a normal pair of hand guards (stability), but install over my moose racing guards they were totally stable and not about to interfere with hand controls or access. Good luck and you have my hopes for warm hands. I also believe in lots of layers so multiple gloves will always outperform a single big pair in my eyes. There are photos of all of these combinations on the old forum, with something like handguards in the title line. Tom

I just use some gauntlet gloves with disposable hand warmers, thought about getting some of the ones from Cabelas that have the warmers built in but I get the warmers for free from work.

If your still looking for handguards, try Skinz Protective Gear. They have a set that is soft and velcro's in place on any bar setup.



Quality built and great people.
