Our GT-40 heated jacket liner and heated “Carbon” gloves were reviewed in the latest issue of Road Runner Motorcycle Touring and Travel magazine. We were excited for the testing because we know the Road Runner crew ride more miles in a week than most ride in a year, so it was the perfect opportunity for our motorcycle gear to warm up a few miles of their winter roads.
Long-distance motorcycle riders and those that ride year-round are extraordinarily tough, but there’s a few secrets hidden under that hardy exterior that keep them on the road. Temperature controlled heated motorcycle gear is one of those secrets. For instance, heated jacket liners are lightweight and minimize bulkiness while dexterity is maintained- which is very important for safe riding. And now, the secret is getting out. More and more everyday riders are starting to use heated gear regularly because it has evolved into practical, easy-to-use, and durable protection from the cold.

Do we really need to justify attending a motorcycle show to you? In addition to the unveiling of new bikes from all the OEMs, the latest parts from aftermarket manufacturers, and incredible deals you can get at a show, we’ll give you one more reason to participate: try on heated motorcycle gear for yourself!
We’ll be at these upcoming International Motorcycle Shows (IMS) over the next few months. Come by our booth to see our new, innovative Hybrid powered gear and experience our proven heated clothing for yourself. We have multiple sizes and styles available, plus friendly staff at the booth to assist you with any heated motorcycle gear questions you might have.

I don’t always pretend like I’m riding a motorcycle, but when I do, I make “vroom, vroom” sounds.
Winter does not wait for anybody or anything, and will be here before we realize it. We just want to make sure you are prepared all winter long by keeping you warm, comfortable and ready for any adventure. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the 2015-2016 winter will be about the same, if not colder than last year.
We put our Deluxe Motorcycle Heated Jacket Liner (GT40) to the test by directly comparing it to a competitor’s heated jacket. As you can see, Venture Heat’s 12V Motorcycle Jacket Liner reached maximum heat much quicker, does not have any hot spots and provides evenly distributed heat throughout the entire jacket liner.
Inside every one of our heated apparel products contains the technology to keep you warm for hours on end. Gone are the days of running coils through mazes within the clothing added bulkiness and limited mobility.
We use micro-alloy fibers for heating panels in our 12v Power Sports line, which provide durability, comfort and allows for more electrical current to travel through, thus improving heating efficiency. The micro-alloy fibers are ideal for larger heating surfaces while still being able to withhold a larger power supply – perfect for our 12 volt jackets, vests and pants. The micro-alloy fiber also provides enough strength to reach full heating capacity in under 10 seconds.
As for our battery heated clothing, we use carbon fiber wiring which was initially designed for aerospace applications. The carbon fiber wiring is great for smaller areas with a slightly less power supply (7 volts for our batteries) but is still flexible enough so you never feel the heating panels. Even though the heating panels are a touch smaller than our power sports line, they are strategically placed through the garment to keep your core warm.
Fun fact: did you know that there are more than 3,000 threads of carbon fiber in the above photo?
Our heated panels are durable enough to roll and throw around with compromising heat transfer.
