Stay Warm with the HEAT-DEMON

BEAT the Cold

Rely on the HEAT-DEMON


Well, winter is here in Northern Alberta, bringing with it sub-zero temperatures in excess of -30 degrees. Riding in these conditions made me quickly realize that hand and thumb warmers are not a luxury but a necessity. I spent some time researching online and there are sooo many options, but one name seemed to appear at the top of all review list – HEAT-DEMON by Symtec. They have a few different kit options but I decided to go with the following two kits for a complete solution:

Heated Grips 176001

  • Fits on 7/8" Handlebars
  • Low 4amp power consumption
  • HI/LOW/OFF flush mounted toggle switch
  • Feel the heat in less than a minute
  • Simple clamp-on installation

Thumb Warmer 176519

  • Fits any throttle
  • 3M Adhesive element - Peal and Stick
  • Shrink Tube to cover the element
  • HI/LOW/OFF flush mounted toggle switch
  • Feel the heat in less than a minute

They’re UV stabilized to resist fading. Industrial-grade wiring ensures it can withstand the coldest temperature without cracking or short-circuiting.

Instead of using two switches, I just used the one and wired both the hand grips and thumb warmer together. My quad has a 12V outlet located close to where I mounted the switch so I tapped into both the positive (+) and ground (-) running to that outlet. Installation was clean and simple.
