Avade heated riding top - got to be product of winter!

I hate riding in the cold! Long transports down roads at 8am are evil. Standing in the rain waiting for a lost rider or a flat tyre sux too!



But I was lucky enough to try an Avade heated riding top on a 3 day ride in Tassie recently.



It is the brainchild of Steve, one of the team at Otway Tours. He is a skinny man that has to do a lot of klms in cold weather. And after several years of development he has beaten the winter chill with this top.



It is a skins-like lycra long sleeved top with three carbon fibre heater elements in it - two on the chest, one on the back. It has a small battery that lasts several hours and a three stage switch with colored led lights for each setting - and it warms up in about 5 seconds!



He explained to me that it was made of the thinnest material possible so once the day warms up, you just hold down the button sewn into your wrist for 5 seconds and it is off for the day. The top just feels like a skins top after that. I couldn't really feel the heater pads or slimline battery under my body armour either, it is all neatly positioned and comfortable.



They can handle plenty of water too - I tested it in a boghole when I drowned myself and my bike. It has to be the smartest product I have come across for winter! IT IS HEATED GRIPS FOR YOUR WHOLE BODY!!



His website will be up and running soon in time for winter. If not I might put them up on www.mainjet.com.au for him. They come in S,M & L at the moment. I could wear a bigger size but L did fit me. I also plan to wear it at the MCG watching footy and would be a lifesaver fishing or sitting on a chair lift on any ski slope.



Great to see another cracking Aussie invention for dirtbike riders!!



They retail for $185.00 - comming soon.
