About Gerbing Heated Gloves
Gerbing heated clothing is the inspiration of Gordon Gerbing, an American engineer. In 1975 he was inspired to develop a unique range of electric heated clothing to overcome the effects of cold temperature when moving at speed. Gerbing heated gloves are the result of decades of development, resulting in Gerbing Thermovelocity Protection. Gerbing heated gloves are part of this unique collection and can be used for any velocity sport where the hands need to be protected from the cold.
Although the initial concept for heated clothing was inspired by a motorcyclist, Gerbing heated gloves are aimed at a large variety of sporting activities, including snow sports, cyclists, golfers and horse riders. The gloves can also be used for general wear, particularly by people working in cold weather, or those who suffer from rheumatism and other medical conditions.
Gerbing heated gloves are available in 7 volt and 12 volt varieties. The 7 volt gloves are designed to be used for any outdoor activity, whilst the 12 volt gloves provide more protection, and are therefore suitable for motorcycling. Gerbing heated motorcycle gloves are designed to be waterproof and windproof, and heat the entire finger, thumb and back of the hand. The gloves are heated by being connected to either a battery that is worn in the cuff of the glove or to the vehicle?s battery. The heat inside the glove can be adjusted using a temperature controller. The battery cable also enables a pair of Gerbing gloves to be connected to other Gerbing heated products using the same cable.
