Why we do not advocate wrap type grips
A wrap type grip heater is really a thin piece of flexible plastic with heating elements “printed” on its surface. To install this type of product, a customer must first carefully remove their old grips, then glue the wrap grip heater to the steel handlebars(this bond often fails due to heat fatigue) and finally re-install their grips. Wrap grip heaters, by the very nature of their design, transfer much more of their heat to the handlebars and less of their heat to the rider’s hands.
Another common problem with wrap grip heaters is that they are often shorter in length than the grips they are attempting to heat. Finally, many wrap grip heaters lack any strain relief on the wires that enter them and suffer from premature failure.
