Heated Handlebars for Cyclists

Cold weather can create many problems for cyclists. Low temperatures and strong head winds can cause discomfort, particularly to the cyclist's hands. With the use of a heated handlebar accessory, this product provides a comfortable and reliable solution. The aim of the project was ultimately to design and develop a product which is primarily focused on improving the cyclist's journey through the use of an innovative new bicycle accessory. The design can be conveniently fitted to most existing handlebar designs. The heated grips will enable the user to experience a sufficient amount of heat in their hands to minimise discomfort and reduce the possibility of health risks.
