Keeping your Hands safe with a set of Hand Guards

   What’s the most vulnerable part of the body for those of us that ride motorcycles not equipped with a fairing? If you answered “The  Hands” you are correct. So much of the ride relies on our hands, as every aspect of it is affected by them. 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 out there other than a fairing? There is and K and G Cycles ( is happy to pass it on to you. Wing Shield Hand Guards and Desert Digits. Hand protectors for almost every bike out there.

Wing Shields are designed to protect your hands from stones, bugs, and other road debris, as well as the cold. Made of tough Lexan polycarbonate, they are virtually unbreakable! One of the toughest transparent materials available today, Lexan is about 300 times stronger than single-strength glass, is weather-resistant, yet remains light weight! Translation – you get lightweight, transparent, virtually unbreakable protection for your hands while traveling on your motorcycle. Sure they could have stopped after giving you unmatched protection, but Brukus stepped up and shaped them to curve over the hand grips on your ride. The shape and curve gives you an aerodynamic advantage that allows the wind to flow smoothly past your hands. Wing Shields are approximately 5? at their widest point and approximately 12? in length.

Desert Digits Hand Protectors are mini motorcycle fairings for your hands that attach to the motorcycles handlebars. The unique Ultra-Swivel feature allows you to optimally position them for perfect protection from the elements.  Desert Digits Hand Protectors mount to any round bar 1? to 1.25? in diameter. Through a patent pending design Leaders “Ultra Swivel” guards offer unlimited rotational capability. Competitors designs provide only limited rotation or only one or two plane angling. Translation – 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 it, and continues around the plate. The Result: cold, wet hands! The Desert Digits patent-pending convex shape solves this problem by actually funneling the air to the outside of the riders hands via the windshield and the Desert Digits. 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. Using rugged marine-grade vinyl that looks like leather and stainless steel and chrome plated mounting hardware, it doesn’t get much better than this. Built with simplicity in mind, the Desert Digits base bracket installs in minutes with no special tools. Continuing on that idea, the cover itself is easily removed when not in use and can be stored in a saddlebag or other location. You do not have to keep them on all the time.
