Barkbusters Blizzard | Motorcycle Handguard for Cold-Weather Riding
Barkbusters Blizzard Handguards
Barkbusters, whose original handguard design in 1984 has now become the industry standard, is leading the way again with the revolutionary new Blizzard.
The Blizzard is made of a lightweight, semi-rigid material and durable, abrasion-resistant textile fabric that encircles the grip and levers, creating a cave of warmth and protection and making this cool new product unlike any other handguard available for motorcycles today.
Unlike other “muff” type products that might hinder the rider’s ability to extract their hands quickly in the event of an emergency, the unique enclosure of the Blizzard is a perfect balance between protection from the elements, good looks, and safety.
The flexibility of the Blizzard material allows it to bend when contacting objects such as windscreens and tankbags, thereby allowing almost any motorcycle, snowmobile, or ATV to be fitted with the handguards.
The unique flexible, yet rigid design will not flap at speed and even provides some protection against small objects such as stones, hail, or brush.
In the event a rider already has standard handguards installed, the Blizzard can be fitted over the existing backbone. They can be attached or removed in minutes via a hook and loop strap on the control side of the handlebar, and a simple screw in the bar-end.
Included in the Blizzard kit is a wide range of hardware to facilitate mounting to handlebar weights, hollow handlebars, and existing aluminum handguard backbones. Available now from Twisted Throttle and dealerships throughout North America.
