Bulky winter gloves will no longer inhibit me from "feeling" my motorcycle more intimately. Now with Hippo Hands, I will be using middle-weight gloves in winter. What a difference! Thank you for bringing these back with style!
Love the new Rogue! Just did a 4 day ride with lows in the 30s and the hands stayed warm the entire time!
Very nice warm
For having to drive in the morning as a commuter motorcycle on certain days - it sure can be freezing on your hands in those early hours. These were a life-saver! Wouldn't have been able to do it without them. I only wish I had the brackets to support them since they aren't able to support themselves and I constantly was battling keeping them upright over my hands unless I put the clutch and brake handles through the elastic.
These to a good job of blocking wind & rain, are super easy to install / remove, and are small enough that they do not interfere at all with controls!
Rogues work well on both KTM 890 Adventure R and BMW R1250GS, wish I had bought them earlier, great customer service also, highly recommended !
They fit well and definitely block the elements, but there is a gap on the inside towards the middle of the handlebars that does not close or get blocked off. This causes wind to flow freely into them and really reduces the effectiveness. I need to find a square of Velcro or something to plug that hole and then they will be pretty much perfect. They do fit nicely even with mirrors and are very easy to put on and take off. So, besides that hole issue, I really like and recommend them. In the image I included, which is not my bike or image, but I circled in yellow where the issue of the gap is that I mentioned.
Great service and product. I ride to school 73 miles around 6am and the first couple weeks in April were consistently low 30s, two days at least ten miles of those ride in 29 degrees, and the hippo hands kept my hands warm. They’re absolutely necessary. Good gore-Tex gloves and heated grips still had my hands numb and my soul crying and my brain worrying about frostbite when riding long distance winter miles, but the combination of those grips, goretex, and hippos...? So long as it’s not sleeting, I’m riding and I ain’t crying.
The rubber backed grips were super helpful keeping the hippos on strong. Thank you for sending those free of charge and with patient, kind service. Good company.
Very good quality. Nice fit, warm hands. Enough said....
This fixed the issue of the muffs sliding forward! Perfect design!
The velcro stitched on the inside needs to be longer in length to allow the front portion of the Hippo Hand to fully rest against the front face of the hand guard. With the current design, the length of velcro that stitched inside the Hippo Hand doesn't attach to the provided velcro strap when placing the Hippo Hand against the front of the motorcycles hand guard.
Additionally, I wish the provided velcro strap was longer in length. The straps provided just barely fit on my 2019 R1250GSA. Any suggestions on how to remedy this would be greatly appreciated.
Had the opportunity to test these out recently on a ride through Oregon and Washington in temps around the low and mid 40's. They performed as advertised and material used is quality stuff.
Used Hippo Hands on a dual sport ride up the Mid-Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route. No heated grips on my bike. Despite cool temperatures and bouts of rain, these kept my hands warm and dry. Sure they look a little funky but they work splendidly.
Great product! Easy to use, easy enough to store, and most important keeps my hands warm and dry. I do quite a bit of cold weather riding. My Hippo Hands make this riding a pleasure.
Very clever product, works great!!
great product...worth every dollar
I’ve been using these for about a month now. My commute to work is about an hour and fifteen minutes. I’ve ridden multiple times in temperatures around 34°F.......with SUMMER GLOVES! (The only ones I have). Hippo hands have been a complete game changer for me. So far, I absolutely love them. Easy to install and very functional. I cannot recommend them higher!
I couldn't be more pleased with my Hippo Hands. The quality of the product is very high. They fit my BMW GS adventure very well and allow me to wear lighter weight gloves vs the bulky winter gloves that limit my ability to interact with my GPS or other electronic devices. If you have heated grips, go with the Hippo Hands rather than electric or bulky winter gloves.
Used them on a cold day and didn't have to wear big bulky gloves.
These newly designed models are higher quality materials and better construction, not to mention much better looking than the last Hippo Hands I owned.
Rogue — Mid-sized, versatile motorcycle hand covers
I had the original Alcan and they were great…..BUT as an early 50th Bday Gift to myself I grabbed a set of the New Alcan Max and HippoHands just knocked it out of the Park. The New materials, areas to secure the covers, new interior velcro attachment and reflective panels make these even better than the originals!! Its so nice to be able to ride in comfort and safety during the shoulder months knowing my hands are protected from the wind and still have all the use of the controls on my BMW.
I’m very satisfied with the quality and value of my Hippo Hands Alcans. They look great and fit amazingly well.
They even compliment the lines of my Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200.
No more cold wet hands on 35 degree rainy days.
Thanks for a great product.
I was up in the air between these or winter riding gloves. I ride year around in Montana (when there isn't ice or snow on the road) I have heated grips but having them on high baked my palms while the back of my hand froze. I didn't like the lack of feel from thicker gloves so went with hippo hands. What a superb choice! It has completely changed my riding experience. My hands stay warm even with my thinner summer gloves and only need my heated grips on a low level. Recently I did a trip where I was riding in 40Fs at highway speeds and my hands never got cold. Complete game changer!
Just got these for my Africa Twin. Riding down the Oregon coast in rain and hail for 40 miles at 45 degrees and my hands were happy the whole way.
