With scooter riders in Italy often commuting all year around, it’s no surprise that Italian firm Tucano Urbano has now launched some warming winter handwear.
The Hot Road gloves feature an on/off button with choice of four heating levels, real leather palm, top side in leather/extra strong Oxford Polyamide, Microfibre lining, Hydroscud 100% waterproof and breathable inner membrane, hard ABS inserts on the knuckles and reflective inserts. They also boast a visor wiping insert, a feature I really like, as well as being touch-screen sensitive.
Available in sizes XS to XL the RRP is £143, plus either £20.99 for a bike battery power lead, or extra £86.99 for the lithium-ion batteries pack and mains charger, the latter perfect for classic scooterists with no batteries on their scooters to power heated clothing with.
We hope to have a pair of these on test very soon and will report back on how we get on with them. www.tucanourbano.com
