Birthday Ural Shop Poll: Help me pick!

Post by Manscout » Wed Oct 09, 2019 4:07 pm

One of my gifts this year was $50 to spend at https://shop-imz-ural.com/collections/frontpage
I have plenty of Ural shirts from here (they are the best t shirts I have ever owned) as well as several other Ural branded items. So, I am giving the options of what I could use. Vote and help my indecisiveness!

I voted for winter gloves. They're able to provide cross-seasonal use that a purely summer-weight glove can't do.

Ushanka Winter Hat it's great for sitting around the fire swapping lies and
combined with apple pie beverage it's great to keep the cold at bay

I should have mentioned that I do have a 3 season Ural glove that is not offered anymore, and they have been awesome. Your hand sweats in them over 80 and starts freezing around 40. But I am thinking that a true winter glove would be a good idea.

How do they feel? Do they provide more dexterity than a regular winter glove? I have just been using a snow glove, and my hand kind of slips in the glove when twisting the throttle.

My thoughts too! I can use the hat even when not riding. Like, probably every time I go outside in the cold.

The dexterity is pretty good for a winter glove, it won't match a summer glove but that is just the insulation.

I used the Search function to confirm that you have Oxford ADV heated grips on your rig. :D With that in mind, you might consider seeking out a motorcycle-specific winter glove with thinnish palm insulation. The intent of this purposeful design feature is twofold: it allows the rider to retain the dexterity associated with a warm[er] weather glove, whilst concurrently allowing the heated grips to effectively keep the underside of your hands warm. Such a glove will have the usual bulky insulation on the topside; not for nothing are heated grips also known as "palm warmers".

I've a pair of Belstaff winter gloves with the foregoing design. Coupled with my Bikemaster heated grips and a pair of silk glove liners for the coldest rides, the combination works quite well.

Would be a real conversation starter :)
