A 4-season super-lite-weight, water-resistant, wind-proof pogie that keeps the wind, rain and muck off you hands.
Works on straight, drop and flared, and Jones bars. Slips over virtually any controls. Easily shift, brake and steer over the top of the Pogie Lites.
Control the temperature easily by sliding the pogie's position where you need it the most. Slide it over your whole hand, just your knuckles or even your fingertips.
Don't need 'em at all? Fold them back and store them on your bars, or take them off and put in a jersey pocket. If it rains or the night-time chill gets ya, roll them back onto your bars. YEAH. It's that easy.

What is a Pogie? - They are an over-sized "mitten" that attaches to your handlebars. The air inside the pogie creates a micro-climate that will keep your hands warm in all temperatures. Pogies have been used for years in extreme conditions for cycling, skiing, motorcycles and ATVs. They cover the whole hand, grips, brakes and controls.
Pogie Lites are sold as a pair.
INSTALLATION - Install over your grips and controls (brake lever and shifter) so the Pogie Lite label shows on top. This positions the buckle so you can pull the tightening strap towards you from the bottom and keep the buckle out of the way if you want to rest your hands in different positions. Tuck the excess strap inside itself and pull tight so the strap won’t flap in the wind.
For drop bars (ride on the hoods) slide the large end over the drops (up from the bar ends) and up over the shifters. Position the tightening strap in a place that it is out of the way if you still want to use your drops. Or reverse if you want to ride mostly in your drops. Wrap the excess strap around on itself and pull tight.
STORAGE - You see how small they fold up. If you don’t need them, take them off and put them a jersey pocket, tail bag or pannier. OR just fold them back on your bars and store them right in place. Then, if it rains or the night-time or morning chill gets ya, roll them back onto your bars. YEAH. It's that easy.
CLEANING - Wash on gentle or delicate with cold water and lay flat to dry.
WARRANTY - BIKEIOWA warrants Pogie Lites to be free from defects in workmanship and materials, under normal use and conditions, for a period of one (1) year for the original purchase date. Shipping and handling fees to be paid by the customer.
LEAVE A REVIEW - GIVE FEEDBACK - We are ALWAYS open to any feedback you have to make Pogie Lites better. Email Biker@BIKEIOWA.com with any comments. And there is nothing better than real-life product reviews and photos.
NOTE: We are using a smaller double O-ring pull-tab than the ones shown in the photos. It is smaller and just give enough to tug on the end without the plastic end.

Scott Sumpter talks Pogie Lites after 10.5 hours on the fat bike in single digit temps, 15 mph winds with a negative wind-chill at the Triple D Winter Ultra Race in Dubuque IA on Jan 19th 2019 --- "They performed flawlessly! The Key is temperature regulation. When you feel your hands getting too warm, pull them out of the pogies, and when feel a slight chill, put them back in. Doing this eliminates sweaty gloves which leads to demise over time. The cool thing about Pogie Lites is that you can Shift and Brake with your hands on the outside of the pogies thus giving you control of the bike. A feature not seen in other pogies."
