Macna Neutron heated gloves are wireless

Unlike many other sets of electric heated motorcycle gloves, Macna Neutron wireless heated gloves don’t have to be plugged into a bulky power supply.

The waterproof gloves come with a discrete, wireless, rechargeable lithium battery in the cuff that lasts for four hours.

Keeping your hands warm and dry is not just a matter of comfort, but also safety. If you have cold hands, you can’t control the throttle and levers as well. The pain from the cold can also divert your attention from the road ahead.

Wireless connection

Macna Neutron gloves are not cheap at $399.95, but they would be far more convenient to use than others that need to be plugged in.

These heated gloves have a three-setting regulator on the top side of the cuff.

Even when the heater is switched off, the Bemberg thermal lining should keep your hands warm while their Outdry system should keep them dry.

It’s the outside that is heated. Heated grips keep the inside of your hands warm the cold blast is to the outside of your hands. With heated gloves you virtually don’t need heated grips, but combined together it makes riding it extreme cold conditions far more comfortable.

The Outdry  water-impregnable membrane is laminated directly to the inside surface of the outer shell of the glove.Macna Neutron wireless heated gloves

They say it is 100% waterproof because the membrane prevents the gloves from becoming waterlogged.

I’ve ridden with other waterproof gloves that don’t let your hands get wet, but the outer glove still absorbs water which makes your hands cold.

It also means you don’t have to hang your gloves over a heater overnight to dry them out for the next day’s ride.

Macna Neutron gloves are made from tough but flexible goat leather with a nylon upper cuff.

They come with R.I.S.C. carbon knuckle protection, EVA padded palms and TPR padded fingers.

They have a 30-degree closure strap and buckle with wrist and cuff straps, a visor wipe on the left index finger, an ergo-thumb design and “touch tip” in the fingers for operating smart screens without having to remove your gloves. 

We’ve tried this touchscreen feature on other Macna gloves and it works ok, but not all the time.

Macna Neutron is available in black only from selected motorcycle retail outlets in sizes S to 4XL.

  1. I live in Canberra and ride throughout winter traveling to work. My bike has heated grips, and on those really cold mornings (-5C) I use a silk glove liner and wear my Ixon “North” gloves. Best winter gloves I have ever bought and I’ve bought a few including Five gloves. Trouble is they are getting old and worn now and cant get new ones as they were re-designed and I cant seem to get decent winter gloves with visor wipes for when we get fogs, so I’m on the lookout for new gloves not sure I’m ready for $400 gloves heated or not.

    My research indicates 200gm thinsulate with decent leather (synthetics just get cold too fast) outer is the sweet (or hot) spot. Insulation plus water proofing on outer side of glove is essential on those cold (damp) mornings.
