A Better way to Protect your Hands

“Our Hands”  – What’s the most vulnerable part of the body for those of us that ride motorcycles without fairings? So much of the ride relies on our hands,  as every aspect of it is affected by them. We know if our hands are cold it affects us and the ride. We know if they get hit by an airborne object it affects us. Is there a solution other than going to a fairing bike? Yes there is and K and G Cycles is happy to pass it on to you. Wing Shield Hand Guards and Desert Digits.

Desert Digits DD1000    Warm and dry equals comfort! That’s exactly what Desert Digits Hand Protectors deliver. Desert Digits Hand Protectors are mini motorcycle fairings for your hands that attach to your motorcycle handlebars. The Ultra-Swivel feature allows you to optimally position your motorcycle hand protector for perfect protection against the elements.  Desert Digits hand protectors mount to any round handlebar that measures 1″ to 1.25″ in diameter. Through a patent pending design the  “Ultra Swivel” guards offer unlimited rotational ability. Other designs on the market provide limited rotation or only one- or two-plane angling. This means that you can adjust the Desert Digits exactly where it you want them. The problem with traditional wind deflectors is that air and rain hits the surface of the deflector, bounces off, but still comes around the plate. The Result: cold, wet hands! The Desert Digits patent-pending convex shape solves this problem by actually funneling the air – using the windshield and the Desert Digits to push wind around and to the outside of your hands. In addition the Desert Digits hand protectors elongated shape (6″ x 13″) provides more coverage for your hands and wrists.

   Let’s face it, looks matter – but so does quality. So the Desert Digits hand protectors were manufactured with BOTH in mind. The material is a rugged marine-grade vinyl that looks like leather and the hardware is all stainless steel and chrome plated. The Desert Digits base bracket installs in minutes with no special tools. The cover itself can be easily removed when not in use and stored in a saddlebag or other location. You do not have to keep them on all the time.
