BUYER’S GUIDE: High-Tech Heat for winter wheeling!

Today’s technology is making winter riding more enjoyable than ever. The biggest deal-breaker for a good winter ride has always been miserably cold hands. The ageold answer to keeping warm was always adding layers, but big bulky gloves always take from the control factor. Heated grips have been around for the snowmobile world for quite some time, but they have recently made a strong insurgence into the winter ATV riding scene. Winter chores aren’t near as painful when you’ve got heated grips keeping your meat hooks warm; throw in a heated thumb throttle and you might even enjoy that early-morning snowplowing. No more excuses this winter; get yourself some heated grips or even heated gloves and go enjoy some winter riding. The following companies have options for all your utility ATV needs and even a few sport options. Extend your season keeping those digits warm.
