The BMW Motorcycle Owners of America is pleased to announce the 45th BMW MOA International Rally – the rally’s sapphire anniversary – will be held at the Utah State Fairpark in Salt Lake City, Utah, July 13th through the 15th, 2017.

Utah is a rider’s wonderland with 21 national parks and monuments, 40 state parks, and seven national forests. Easy day rides from the Fairpark will take you into the mountains to Park City, the Utah Olympic Park, and the year-round resorts of Alta, Solitude, and Snowbird.

Salt Lake City is located between the Great Salt Lake and the west side of the spectacular Wasatch Mountains. About 530 miles west of Denver, 765 miles east of Portland and 425 miles northeast of Las Vegas, it is often called the crossroads of the west. Hosting the 2002 Winter Olympic Games infused the city with an international flavor, while still maintaining a friendly, “small city” feel. The rally site is spread over 65 acres and close to the intersection of I-15 and I-80 for easy access.

A light rail system terminal just outside the grounds provides easy transportation to thousands of hotel rooms, hundreds of restaurants and numerous quality micro breweries. To find out more about this great state, check out the book “Ride Utah!” by Dave Magdiel. At over 300 pages it lists suggested routes, places to stay and eat, and provides a great appreciation of your riding opportunities going to, and returning from, the rally.

Venture Heat Assists With Eagle Photography During Cold Winter

Every once in a while our friends that have purchased our products send us updates on what they’re up to while using our heated clothing. Just recently, Dixie Kurtz from Iowa sent us a nice note and a few photos of her photography club, the Quad City Photography Club, wearing our winter sports heated glove liners to keep their hands warm when out taking photos in the frigid temperatures of the Iowan winter.

“I am a happy owner of your glove liners. My husband bought them for me for Christmas. I do a lot of eagle photography and live in Iowa where it is sometimes extremely cold. As a member of a photography club I have talked these glove liners up to a few of our members and several have purchased them. I know of at least four people who I have sent your way. If I could have carried an inventory I could have made a few bucks, haha!

Anyway, we have a winter seminar every year which incorporates eagle photography. I’m enclosing a picture of two of our club members that bought your gloves already! The photo shows how cold it is here! Our website is  https://qcphotoclub.com/.

As you can see the glove liners can make for a great day!

Thank you again!

Dixie Kurtz

Road Runner Motorcycle Mag Reviews our Heated Jacket Liner and Carbon Gloves

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.

If you’re interested in heated gear and would like a third party opinion- take a look at what the folks at Road Runner had to say; view each image or visit Road Runner’s website: www.roadrunner.travel

Cycle World Reviews Venture Heat Motorcycle Gear

In case you missed the article in Cycle World magazine, here’s what they had to say about our heated vest liner, pants liner, gloves and insoles:

(See the original article here)

CW Evaluation: Venture Heat Grand Touring Collection Electric Clothing

Get warmly wired, from head to toe.

Leaving Abilene, Texas, the thermometer hadn’t broken 40 degrees and the windchill from the 35-mph breeze put temps slightly below freezing. I was headed north from the COTA MotoGP race, directly into the wind, and had a long ride ahead of me that had to happen as I was flying east the next day. It would prove to be one of the toughest days I’ve had on a motorcycle and there’s only one reason I rolled into my driveway 12 hours later: Venture Heat’s electric clothing.

The Venture Heat Grand Touring Collection vest, pant-liners, insoles and gloves had arrived the day before I left Colorado and they stayed neatly packed all the way to Austin, taking up valuable room in my small luggage and mocking me for this wasted space as I rode to Texas in comfortable 70-degree temps. I had replaced the Alpinestars insoles in my boots with the Venture Heat wired insoles and felt stupid every time I thought about it.

Motorcycle Heated Clothing and Gloves

But that all changed five days later as I woke up in Abilene to whistling wind and the type of conditions that make even a Prius look good. I slipped into the vest and pant-liners, which are both extremely soft, flexible and have the same bulk as a good workout suit. I plugged the insoles into the bottom of the pant-liners, hooked the liners to the vest, plugged into my FZ1 and headed into the wind. Fifteen minutes later I stopped.

My hands were frozen and almost useless. I clawed through my luggage and pulled out the Venture Heat Carbon Street gloves. I’ve never been a big fan of cold-weather gloves due to the added bulk, reduced feel and reduced crash protection, but the Carbon gloves go a long way toward alleviating those concerns, especially in terms of protection. They have 3M Thinsulate insulation and a waterproof membrane. By definition they have to be a bit more bulky than the Alpinestars GP Pros I was wearing, but I was at the end of my rope that morning and literally could not have continued. Call me wimpy, but you had to be there to feel the misery. In 12 hours I saw only one other motorcycle on the road and twice I saw 37 degrees on bank signs. It snowed on me and I rode past miles of plowed snow left from the night before. The headwind never abated.

The Venture Heat stuff is outstandingly comfortable. The bulky coils of yesteryear have been replaced with hair-thin microfibers for instant heat and all-day comfort, which the company has dubbed “Xtreme Comfort Tech.” You will feel the insole wire running up behind your heel and it could get uncomfortable to walk in, but my Yamaha didn’t require me to walk. The Grand Touring collection pant-liners and vest each have separate power buttons that reside on a flap that sticks out about three inches for access on your left hip. I wore the clothing under a one-piece nylon riding suit and could access the power buttons through a zippered opening. One long push turns the gear on high (red glow from the power button), and two more quick pushes change to medium (yellow) and low (green), with another long push for off. I ran jacket and pants on high and then medium when I donned my rain jacket to blunt the wind sneaking through my suit’s shoulder seams. The heat hits immediately and I challenge you not to giggle when it comes on.

Glove power buttons are on the gauntlets. Plugs connect to cords that run up your sleeves to the vest. Due to the small fairing on my FZ1, I ran the gloves on high for most of the trip, switching to medium only twice when my speeds came down in larger cities. The fit and feel of the leather and nylon gloves improved substantially during the ride as they broke in, and a nice touch is the fingertip fabric on index fingers to access your electronic touch-screens when needed. Venture Heat also offers a full-sleeve heated liner for your upper body and the conditions I faced may have warranted that option.

This is a glowing review because Venture Heat has created an outstanding product in its Grand Touring Collection. Comfort and looks are exceptional and the gloves are the best compromise I’ve tried for cold-weather riding. Reaching the control flaps isn’t as easy as accessing a power-cord switch or thermostat, but each article of clothing can be adjusted separately, with the exception of the insoles; these are on any time the pant-liners are on and it’s interesting that I never felt true heat under my foot, but my feet were never cold. Venture Heat has found a good insole heat setting, at least for the conditions I faced. A handlebar-mount wireless remote is available to manage heat level without fumbling for the power flaps.

This outfit plugs into the bike’s 12-volt system and provides limitless warmth (as long as your charging system can keep up with the total draw of 170 watts for all the pieces), as opposed to self-powered rechargeable clothing that would not have lasted during my 12-hour ride from COTA. The fused power cord attaches directly to the bike’s battery and everything interconnects quickly. My maiden test with the Grand Touring vest, pant liner, gloves and insoles came in dire conditions and this gear was up to the task.

 

Repost: Interview with Venture Heat, by Cold Outdoorsman

*This is a re-post from Cold Outdoorsman. We were given the opportunity to be interviewed about our company, products and goals, which we were happy to be apart of.*

I’ve struggled with Raynaud’s syndrome my entire adult life. That means I’ve been fighting for 20+ years to find clothes and other ways to stay warm, long before I ever launched Cold Outdoorsman. One company had been on my radar for some time, but I never took the initiative to reach out because I figured it was just “little ol’ me” asking questions. Thanks to you, dear reader, I’ve finally been able to conduct the Venture Heat interview I’d thought about for years. Venture Heat doesn’t use wool and insulation to help people beat the cold outdoors. Instead they work with powered clothing — an electric blanket for your body, so to speak.

Q: So many people focus on wool and insulation for warmth. Venture Heat’s strategy goes straight to the (power) source: electricity. What made this light bulb go on when Venture Heat was founded?

A: Our original idea was inspired by a plug-in heated blanket, and we thought, “why can’t this be portable and in clothing?” Since we love the outdoors and have always been looking for a way to extend our seasons and adventures, we thought this was the perfect solution.

Q: Why do you think more companies haven’t explored this powered-heat route for clothing?

A: It really takes the electronics expertise to provide exceptional heated clothing, and most clothing companies don’t have the infrastructure to perfect this.

Q: Electricity and water don’t play nicely together. What sorts of fail-safes do you use to ensure that the cords and batteries are 100% protected against water short-circuiting them and/or harming the wearer?

A: All of our wiring and controllers are protected with a waterproof coating. We have built in circuits to our battery packs to ensure that if they were to get wet, they would shut off immediately in order not to short out the garment or harm the user.

Q: I’m sure you encounter a lot of people who are skeptical about the clothes’ day-to-day use because of a battery pack. Outdoors-y folks are obviously concerned about warmth, but they also don’t want any additional weight or things that’ll consume precious space. How big are the battery packs, and how heavy? Do they make Venture Heat’s clothing look or feel bulky?

A: It is understandable about people’s skepticism in wearing clothes with a battery. Our batteries weigh roughly 8 ounces. They are about as wide and as long as a business card and less than an inch thick. Our glove batteries are even smaller! You can hardly notice you are carrying a battery when wearing our garments, especially once you start enjoying the heat.

Q: Some people, myself included, have called Venture Heat’s products “basically an electric blanket that you wear.” That’s not entirely correct, is it? Can you share about the technology you use vs. the coils in an electric blanket?

A: In a sense that is true, as that is where our original inspiration came from. The difference is over the years we have innovated our heating elements using micro-alloy wiring that is ultrasonically bonded between two materials then stitched into each garment to create more well-rounded comfortable outdoor clothing. Other than the heat that comes with every product, we add features such as Dintex and 3M Thinsulate layers in our gloves to make them water and wind resistant.

Q: Your materials seem to be largely polyester, spandex and other synthetics. What consideration has Venture Heat given to natural materials? What attributes have led you to choose synthetics over natural materials?

A: One key factor has to do with the markets we strive to support with our product line. We match the popular materials used in those markets with the garments we make. Also, it is important that our products don’t shrink and wear the way many natural materials do.

Q: When you’re designing new gloves and clothing, does the Venture Heat team focus first on form or function? In other words, does the look/feel take precedent, or does warmth? Why?

A: We take a three-pronged approach to this by looking at the current popular styles in the market, how we can take that and apply our heating system, and then how well it will function. If we leave any of these areas out we would not achieve the success we expect in our customers’ continued satisfaction.

Q: I get cold hands, so I’m fascinated by the Epic 2.0 gloves. They’re heated and touchscreen-friendlyand waterproof. Normally waterproof and touchscreen don’t come in the same gloves, let alone with powered heat. How did you pull that off?

A: The Epic 2.0 glove is one of our best products. We knew with the continued growth of touch screen products, it was important to provide our users the ability to use their devices without having to remove their gloves in the cold. The waterproofing is achieved with our Dyntex waterproof membrane installed within the glove. It did take us some time to find a durable material to provide a truly functional touch screen friendly surface, but we did it.

Q: Do you see skiers and snowboarders buying Venture Heat products? Do the heated gloves offer the same dexterity that non-heated gloves do? What about the heated jackets, hoodies and pants? What’s their flexibility and breathability like?

A: We have very good success in the ski and snowboard market. Our gloves do have nice dexterity in comparison to a standard ski glove that has equal insulation. We provide 110 grams of insulation in our gloves, and the heating elements do not add unwanted bulk or reduce flexibility. You can literally roll up and scrunch our heating elements without ever damaging them. Our jackets and other garments are equally successful. They breathe well and again are extremely flexible without any concern of damaging the product.

Q: Venture Heat offers therapy items as well, so clearly you have some medical/therapeutic sensibilities on staff. Have your designers heard of Raynaud’s syndrome? When looking at new products, how much are niche consumers like this on their radar vs. designing for a broader audience?

A: Our heat therapy line provides many users relief in many different areas including Raynaud’s, stem cell recovery, arthritis and replacement surgeries, not to mention standard aches and pains. Our line is also great for pre-exercise warm ups. You can use them to warm and loosen your muscles prior to your physical activity. The key to our heat therapy line‘s success is that we use Far Infrared Heat technology that penetrates deep into the muscle tissue to provide warmth from the inside, not just burning the surface of the skin like traditional heating pads.

Q: What are the biggest differences between a therapeutic heated item and one designed for more recreational use?

A: There are not a lot of differences. We build portable battery powered heat therapy wraps that are designed specifically for certain body parts, like a knee or shoulder. We have many users wear them during their recreational activities. It helps provide deep heat to the specific troubled area they have and helps keep the muscles loose for their activities.

Q: Raynaud’s sufferers tend to really be sensitive in the hands and feet. You seem to have hands well covered, if you’ll pardon the pun. What’s the likelihood that we’ll see heated socks in the future? What are the challenges to pulling that off?

A: We are in the development stage of heated socks. We get asked this question a lot, and the reason we just don’t build one and bring it to the market is, like all of our products, we aren’t satisfied with just copying what is out there. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and functional solution for your feet.

Q: How are the motorcycle gloves different from the standard battery-heated gloves? Is it mostly a voltage thing? Are there other differences?

A: The 2 major differences are the heated motorcycle gloves are specifically designed as riding gloves and plug into your motorcycle, allowing for more all-around efficient heating. Our battery heated gloves are designed for winter sports and keeping warm during everyday activities, where has our motorcycle heated gloves have pre-curved fingertips for increased throttle feel, protection, leather palms for maximum grip and are wind and waterproof.

Q: It sounds like there’s some excitement about the Escape USB Heated Softshell jacket. What innovations in it are you most proud of? 

A: We are extremely excited and proud of our Escape USB heated jacket because not only is a built for harsh conditions and stylish, but because of the power source – any 2.1A USB Power Bank can power the jacket for hours! Since many people already have a USB Power Bank, they can naturally save on cost and bring their own heat. By having a USB Power Bank as the jacket’s (and hoodie’s) power source, it allows for much longer heat duration since their capacity is much larger than a traditional 7V battery.

Q: Are Venture Heat’s products washable? If so, what precautions should people know about before washing them?

A: Our new Evolve Heated Hoodie and Escape Heated Jacket are machine washable. We recommend washing on cold and tumble dry on low. Our 7v and 12V heated products are to be washed by hand and hung dry.
