Does Volt make a heated glove specifically for cycling? Well that depends on the individual and how they are going to be used.
Over the past 10+ years of developing and selling heated gloves we have had customers contact us you are looking for a heated glove for cycling. These customers obviously all want something that will help keep their hands warm while on their bike but they all seem to be different in what else they need depending on how extreme the weather is that they ride in and how they ride.
For years those who rode in extreme weather like sleet/snow they would opt for our Tatra Heated Gloves which not only keep your digits warm but also keep you dry. The extended gauntlet also helps to seal out any unwanted moisture and wind coming in at your wrists. The Tatra gloves though may be too bulky for some who need more dexterity in the fingers.
The Volt Heated Glove Liners are designed to be worn as a liner underneath an outer glove shell or mitt for them to be most effective against the cold however there are those that still like to use them as a stand alone glove. The Volt Glove Liners are insulated and are constructed with a waterproof moisture barrier so for less extreme weather have been the option for those who are less sensitive to the cold and want a more thin, form fitting glove for their ride. Because of their low profile fit they allow the rider full dexterity for those who demand it. But because of less insulation and thin outer shell material they are not going to be as effective against the wind.
If you are a winter cyclist and demand that your riding gloves keep your hands warm and dry in the coldest of conditions but also need to have full dexterity then this is the choice for you. The Frostie II gloves use a smaller battery that is stored in a pocket on the underside of the cuff and is virtually unnoticeable which provides power to a heating system that completely surrounds your hand with warmth. Don’t just take our word for it as you see a full review done here by Chad in Canada who rides in subfreezing temps.
