Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure Heated Grips
Great heat, good quality
Good quality by the appearance. The grips are on the firm side, certainly not soft.
It is confusing though to choose the correct grip for your bike. They confusingly call them sport, touring and adventure. Just look at the grip lengths of those and choose the ones that match the grips on your bike.
Only used them a couple times, heat up fast and hard to believe the need for a setting over 40%. I set them to 100% until warm and then back it off to 30 or 40%. I just installed some grip puppies and maybe I will need the higher settings now.

I have used a few different types of grip heaters but these are my favorite! They heat fast and save your hands on the cold rides. I have used them on a November ride through Yellowstone national park riding in 24deg temps and it would not have been possible without them. I use them with grip puppies and still get plenty of heat. They are very equal in heat so no one hand too hot. Make sure you look up the size of them though. Each style has a different length so don't assume because you have a touring bike that the touring will be correct length.

Installed on my 92 FJ1200
The temp control is easy to use with riding gloves. Install was easy, routing the wiring was the main work. Quality looks to be top notch, should last a long time. Keeps hands warm in the low 30s so far. The left grip is a little cooler than the right, probably because it contacts the bare metal of the bar vs the right grip going over the plastic throttle control. Not a big deal but it is noticeable. Also have the Sport grips on my Duc 900sp. Good stuff.

What was claimed, was delivered.
Really great product! Good instructions. Easy install. Ample wire length. Incredible heat output, Been riding in 12 degrees Celsius and find the second setting ample. Selector Buttons easy to use with gloves, and the grip is a nice width. Two thumbs up!
Hint: there is a great install video on YouTube.

Nice and warm....but
These grips work as advertised in the heating department! The controller and such is great, they warm up fast and will be a great friend in cold situations. My only sore spot is the comfort and design of the grips themselves. I am hoping for a more pliable and "softer" feeling grip in the future. I would like to see Oxford take the current setup and place the components inside a off-road style grip. I would like to keep the plug and play system, but have the choice of a softer compound grip. The system is mounted on my 990ADV.

EXCELLENT customer help
My new Oxford heated grips are the best accessory I've put on my bike. They were easy to install and work great. The best part of this purchase was the PHENOMENAL support I got when trying to decide which grips to get for my bike. All around a great purchase. Thank you RevZilla!

If you are looking for heated grips this is a great product for the price!
I've had Oxford heated grip products for a number of years and I just replaced my original Oxford heated grips because they just wore out from use. My old grips were well worn from keeping me warm faithfully in temps down to the teens. I was hoping to make it through the winter of 2013-2014 but recently they finally quit. I was pleased to find out that Oxfor has an updated version (The Adventure grips you are now reviewing for yourself).
The Adventure grips are well worth the investment, It was a very easy installation and the improvements Oxford has made to the product makes is "plug-N-Play"-like so that you are back on the road quickly. In the two weeks that I've had this, my second set of Oxford grips, I am entirely pleased.
The control unit is waterproof and hardened for the weather. All the wiring is robust and connectors are designed to keep out the water. Wiring eyelets or loops are for ready connection to the battery and if you are worried about accidentally flat-lining your battery, this kit has a voltage sensor and watches out for you and will shut off the grips (if you forget to) at 10.5v with the battery saver feature.
The grips went on as expected (follow the instructions) and they are comfortable and bring up the heat as they should. When applying the grip glue use care to not foul up your throttle.
With a gloved hand in a few minutes you are again comfortable and your muscles are not tightening from the cold. Muscle fatigue is dangerous these grips provide the solution. Five settings on the controller provide you an improved range for heat. Two larger buttons provide for easy control of the heat levels. It comes with everything you need to install (mounting bracket, hardware, zip ties, etc.)
The price is worth the investment to ensure an enjoyable (AND SAFE) ride with hands that are warm and can safely adjust your motorcycle’s controls. Don’t miss out on this opportunity.
