Oxford is renowned for its single bestselling product, Oxford HotGrips. So when it made a decision to design Heated Gloves, it made sure that they have to be of excellent quality. The glove is made from top-of-the-line 1mm leather and 500 denier PU-backed Nylon with extensive utilization of stretch panels for comfort, suede for grip control, reflective parts for visibility, a visor wipe for stormy situations and cushioning for impact protection.
Moreover, it utilizes a three-layered water-resistant & breathable membrane -- 3M THINSULATE -- which means that it is a truly warm and waterproof glove even without a heat source.
Unlike similar products already sold in the market, Oxford has dispensed with the crude wire-based heating elements in favor of a woven source of heat that is completely hidden. A similar technology has been utilized on Oxford’s warmed vests, and has turned out to be as reliable as it is effective. Once wired into the motorcycle's battery, warmth can be regulated with the big yet glove-friendly power button on the top of every piece.
This one-of-a-kind heat switch is constructed from thin, versatile TPR rubber so you can't sense its presence. It has three heat levels conveyed through a colored LED that lights up in green yellow or red.
The product comes with everything you require for a convenient lifestyle within a package, which is itself a breathable storing bag to allow airing for the gloves when not in use. The whole package is available in November at a retail price of 149.99 British pounds in sizes XS-XXL.
It also comes with a two-year guarantee. In a nutshell, Oxford Heated Gloves are waterproof, thermal, breathable and heated, and comes with all the rewards as part of the Oxford lineup of Essential Rider Equipment.
