If you subscribe to Ride magazine for either 6 months (£22 odd) or 12 months (£43 odd) you get a "free" pair of Oxford "Light" heated grips.
I'm not fussed by the mag but 6 copies & a pair of grips for just over 20 quid ain't bad at - and all delivered to your door

I didn't want to see this thread - paid around £60 for a new pair of Oxford grips a few weeks ago to replace the old, failed ones (but glad I had them for the recent chilly weather).

I cancelled my subscription a few years back the free gifts were the only thing keeping me reading it. I had a 1/4" Teng socket set, Set of Beta screwdrivers, Motrax neck & shoulder warmer and a few other things. When it was time to renew i never bothered the mag was so thin the stories were wishy washy and it had generally gone down hill big time from when i started my subscription some years before, i did pick a copy up in tesco the other day and browse through it they were doing bikes for £1500 or something it still didn't appeal so i left it there.

They're bottom of the range Oxfords with the mag.
Do they warm your hands and fit on the bars? What more do you want? ;-)

Didn't realise they did more than 1 type, i just checked the oxproducts website and they show 6 models. All of which appear to be the same spec :confused::confused::confused::confused: but with a different grip ????

Different switching/heat outputs I think you'll find. The 'Light' is suggested as being suitable for scoots.

reading it only the scooter ones are differnt all the others are upto 50 degrees and draw less than 4 amps, scooter ones are upto 45 degrees and draw 3 amps. So the story here is buy the cheapest one as they nearly all have the same heater elements

Free Oxford grips? If they're the cheap ones with the two position switch then they may be worth having. If it's the other ones then just eBay them.

I see from Jason's link that the Oxford muppets appear to have redesigned their improved revised updated new model advanced extra reliable controller yet again :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:.

It's Oxford "Light" grips that come with the offer.

These are cheaper & designed (???) Predominantly for smaller bikes - so they say. I reckon their normal grips are too pricey & many are turning to cheaper/more reliable alternatives.......

The "Lights" have a 3 position panel mounted switch - off, low & high.

Anyway, I'll let you know what they are like when they arrive.
How bad can they be, I mean the price is right!
