i got my tourmaster synergy gloves the other day but haven't had a chance to try them out until this morning, i rode to work just so i could. these are the first generation synergy leather gloves, i got them at jafrum.com for $128. the second generation gloves are about $80 more. one thing i'll say about the gloves is that there is a lot of wireing to them. the gloves have a outer gauntlett of leather and an inner gauntlett of nylon with a drawstring for a better fit. being electric they don't feel much bulkier than the joe rocket gloves i got a few weeks ago and the bulkieness is the wireing. it was 33f on this mornings ride to work and other than the very tips of my fingers the gloves worked fine tomorrow i'll plug them in and see how that works :D:D

Mark,

I believe there maybe a couple guys that use the battery ones. I think our "Road Warrior" from down under Eric does if memory serves me correct.

it would be nice if the battery powered gloves could heat and recharge off the bike or just recharge ac outlet

I know I could look them up on the web, but how about a pic? My gauntlets are just about done and I'm in the market for a new pair. My Bristol's fell into the black hole or something, cause they're nowhere to be found.

Either turn them on & give us feedback or stop posting. It's like watching paint dry at this point.:rolleyes:

I have had the Tourmaster gloves for a couple years and like them. One of my gloves had a problem though, two of the wires got crossed and it created a hot spot that during one really cold ride actually blistered the top of my hand! I tried to undo the crossed wires, but no luck. WingStuff.com exchanged the gloves no problem. I wound up keeping one of the original gloves and just replacing the one bad one. The other new one had a stitch coming loose and didn't fit right.

So just look them over and if you start getting HOT HOT HOT look for wires that are touching each other. The Gerbings fine wire might be more comfortable, but I haven't tried them.
