Size Chart for the Tour Master Synergy 2.0 Heated Textile Gloves
Please measure across the palm of your hand starting at the top side of the base of your thumb (see image chart) using a cloth tape measure and choose your size from the chart below.
Please note all measurements are in inches.
Comment: Warm, used down to 7degF for an hour ride. Size is tricky, needed medium to get over hand but if fingers are slim you need to hold your fingers under the levers to get contact with the glove. Index finger doesn't get warm enough. Overall they do the job and extned my riding season below the freezing temps. The controller modulates voltage, so straight connection from glove to power is needed below 40degF, at least for me.
Comment: I purchased these gloves last month. I used them to ride from Washington to Socal. They work great and i would recommend to anyone to use in any weather. My only concern is sizing. I read on blogs that sizing is specific however I have always used large gloves. For these I ordered xlarge and they are still too small. I will have my wife use these and order 2xlg for me.
Again, today we're taking a closer look at the Synergy 2.0 gloves. Now, these
gloves will not be available until late Fall 2013 but I wanted to show you a
couple of the features so that you can purchase the best product for you. These
gloves are available in two versions, a leather version and a textile version.
This is the video for the textile version. To see a video with uncanny
similarities to this video, but featuring the
leather version of this glove, click the link below to go to our website.
Unlike the original Synergy heated gloves, the 2.0 versions use either the new
single or dual Rheostat controllers so they no longer have controllers in the
gloves themselves. This does change the adjustability somewhat because you may
be sharing Rheostat function with other garments, depending on how you have them
hooked up. But, the reduction of weight and bulk is completely worth it in my
opinion. These gloves aren't just warm, either. They have numerous safety
features, These gloves feature a padded top hand, ulna, and pinky, and stretch
panels in the fingers. The gloves are adjustable using the hook and loop
closures at the wrist and on the gauntlet. The palm and thumb are reinforced and
the thumb features a face shield wiper. Powering up your gloves is a cinch. If
you are wearing the gloves by themselves or with a vest, you will need to use
the extended v-split connector that is included with the gloves. Just hold the
leads in your hands when you put your riding jacket on, and you're all wired up.
If you are using these gloves in conjunction with the Synergy Heated Jacket
Liner, simply plug the gloves into the connectors located in the pockets on the
sleeves of the jacket liner. As with all heated products, be sure to start your
motorcycle before plugging the controller into the power lead. This will protect
your garments from any voltage spikes that can occur during ignition.
