Which Hippo Hands model is best for your bike?
Choosing the right model depends on your bike, riding style and preferences. Please read the descriptions below to help you decide the best model for your riding style and for the bike you ride.
Your bike must have hand or brush guards installed to fit properly. (Check out our installation videos to see how they fit!)
Alcan — Maximum coverage
The Alcan™ is a maximum coverage, all-weather hand cover that fits adventure bikes, sport touring bikes, and many others. The Alcan is for riders who embark on cold, wet weather rides and longer tours. These are the absolute warmest hand covers on the market. These fit BMW GS 1200/1250/850/650, KTM 1290/890/790, Africa Twin, HD Pan America and comparable bikes great.
Rogue — Mid-sized versatility
The Rogue™ model is our most versatile, mid-sized hand cover— It fits a myriad of adventure and sport touring bikes, as well as some scooters, and other bikes. It is our commuter rider's model of choice. It offers a large hand opening that stays open at high speeds and they are designed to be fitted over brush/hand guards.
Backcountry — Designed for Enduro and dirt bikes, they are also a great option for Harleys/cruisers that have swept back bars. email us with your model if you are unsure. Harleys require hand guards installed to properly support Hippo Hands or any hand covers (We recommend Memphis Shades).
Riders who want a smaller hand cover that still offers very good protection but is better suited for standing while riding choose the Backcountry model. We have many customers who love them for cool, wet single-track excursions. These are built to last!
Duc — For late-model Ducati Multistradas, Hyperstradas & Hypermotards.
The Duc is specifically designed to fit the large Ducati hand guards with integrated turn signals. These hand covers will accommodate the common after-market Barkbuster bars added to many of these bikes. The front panel is 3M reflective for high visibility, and features a clear window to show the integrated turn signal.
All motorcycle hand covers should be mounted over hand guards, brush guards or lever guards to support the hand cover and prevent blow-back onto your levers.
