What is the Coolride grip heating system Comfort Alpin?
The grip heating System Comfort is based on a pair of Coolride heating cartridges that are built into the handlebars and specifically heat the grip area from inside. They are controlled with a powerful, 5-stage electronic power controller, which can be installed completely invisibly due to its small dimensions. It is operated via a discreet, waterproof LED push button made of anodized aluminum. The SPC-5TC Alpin offers additional comfort due to automatic ambient temperature compensation.
Comfort or Comfort Alpin?
The SPC-5 and SPC-5TC power controllers follow a puristic operating concept. They are identical in their basic functions. The SPC-5TC Alpin power controller also offers temperature compensation. A temperature sensor continuously registers changes of the ambient temperature, e.g. by drivingin the mountains or at changing weather conditions, and independently changes the heat output in 20 finely tuned levels. Treat yourself to optimal thermal comfort!

Selecting the correct size & options
Choosing the size
Select the diameter of the heating cartridges so that they fit as tightly as possible into the handlebar. The order size is the inside diameter of the handlebar rounded to the nearest mm.
17.9 mm inner diameter = Order size 17 mm
17.0 mm inner diameter = Order size 17 mm
16.9 mm inner diameter = Order size 16 mm
For the attachment of handlebar end weights or hand protectors, the heating cartridges are equipped with an internal thread size M6 or M8 at the end.
The display and control unit (push button) is optionally available in black or natural colored aluminum. Both color variants are made of anodized aluminum.
