Doesn't get very cold here but I've fitted a Chinese set on both my bikes 

I drill a small  hole in the center of the bars roll them up and fit them inside the bar ends fiddly job takes a bit longer to warm up but there's no exposed wires to get ripped off 

(plastic with resistance circuits printed on them)

i bought some oxford ones to fit on my 1200 bandit good value for money but you cannot have them on 100% too hot but they are adjustable my advise spend a little more worth the money

The Symtec pads are really good and you don't end up with "fat" grips Steve wink

Hi John. I have Oxford grips that I am going to fit to one of my road bikes but, for trail riding, I don't like their "fat" grips and prefer the Symtec pads which fit under the standard grips. Haven't bought any for a long while so didn't know they were now expensive cry
