    Introducing the Rogue motorcycle hand cover from Hippo Hands.

    The Rogue model is an amazingly versatile mid-sized hand cover. It provides all-weather coverage, fits most Adventure bikes and Sport Touring bikes. It offers a large hand opening that stays open even at highway speeds and are designed to be fitted over the top of brush/hand guards. It is the choice for commuters and riders who don't need the full size and coverage of our Alcan model.

    This is the Rogue on a BMW X country 650. perfect to stand and ride, or for highway travel. The mid-size hand cover is most popular with the commuter and enduro crowd....So much better than wearing big bulky gloves...!!!! Your hands are going to love you for it!

    So even if you don't have hand/brush guards mounted on your handlebars, there's no problems with the covers pushing back on the brake/clutch levers at highway speeds?

    update: I just seen on your website's FAQ page:
    Does my bike need brushguards/hand guards?
    Yes. We recommend that all Hippo Hands be mounted with hand guards to prevent potential blowback into the controls when riding at high speeds.

    Yessir. We recommend all hand covers be mounted over a supportive structure. We are developing a bar-end anchor for bikes without hand guards (attaches to bar-end weights) Should be available by November!

    That sounds good, I may wait 'til then to order a pair. Of course, I could probably be persuaded to test out a pair too, as I ride/commute daily in most all sorts of weather. :muutt

    I have the back country but I feel I may need these instead....do the open spaces in the muffs allow cold air to come in? I see lots of holes when it's on that GS...

    Also, the pictures here show the bar-end holes- but the pictures on the website don't. So, do they have those holes? I would actually like them- the velcro on the Back countries failed very fast.

    I just ordered a set of Alcans. Perfect timing. My hands were frozen this morning in 30* weather riding to work. I definitely need these.

    Thanks for the suggestion- I guess the Alcans do seem to seal everything better. I got the back country for minimalism but when one rides the amount I ride....
    How come you guys did not put the sealing system on the rogue? they cost about the same!

    The Rogue is designed to be able to fit 1000s of bikes, and is meant for riders who want protection without the bulk of the Alcan. It does a fantastic job for commuters and fits bikes with numerous handlebar set-ups/mirror placements. You are right, the closure system on the Alcan is a much more "sealed off" closure...great for ADV riders and Sport touring riders who don't stop when it gets really cold. It really depends on the bike and the riding temps to determine the best fit. Hope that helps!

    Thanks, but does it mean that the Alcans may or may not fit certain bikes? I have a Yamaha FZ09- considering the GS has a bigger set of switches etc, I think the Alcans should fit.
    I saw on instagram that you have a heat vision image of inside the Alcans which is impressive- but, how does it look inside a Rogue? And are the Alcan "sleeves" longer than the Rogues?

    The Alcan is built around the GS. It is a large all-weather hand cover and it fits almost all the big ADV bikes and any ST bike with hand guards. It definitely retains more heat than the Rogue model and is slightly larger in every aspect. It will fit the FZ09 (some newer model fz09 have a long wedge shaped hand guard that have a hard time accepting hand covers, however, you can still fit it). Hope that helps!
    email bryan@hippohands if you ever have concerns or questions on fitment on any bike.

    Oh great. NOW I see this! Just ordered the Alcan for my GSA yesterday. I think I typed in "ADVRIDER" and got 5% or something like that.

    I own the Alcan for my GS and they work great, but are too big to also work on my Harley Ultra
    classic. Do you guys know if the Rogue model would work? Thanks

    I'm a little late replying but thank you for mine!! I have used them last season and boy do they ever work. My hands do not numb up and I can wear my summer gloves. I have the Rogues on my 2017 Yamaha Super Tenere:
