gloves made to work with heated grips?

I'm looking for gloves with a thin, conductive palm which are otherwise insulated. These are to be used for cold weather riding on a bike with no wind protection and heated grips.

Any recommendations?

Saw these and thought these would be pretty good, fairly cheap too-
Pinnacle 2-in-1 Gloves

Olympia also has one built in the same manner -

My wife and I have too many glove as it is so I will not be trying either anytime soon but either looks like a good glove and I'm bugged by em. The sale price Cabela's has going on is very good too.

First Gear TPG Tundra and TPG Cold Weather gloves. Both have insulation on the backs but not on the areas which contact the grips, the idea being to allow heat from heated grips to penetrate to your palms and fingers.

Haven't tried 'em.

Used them down to 30 degrees for last three seasons. Perfect.

One alternative to consider is to throw a pair of Hippo hands (or the cheaper Tusk version) on the bike. I can use my summer gloves with the Tusks and the grip heaters and am completely comfortable down well below freezing on my freeway commute.

At $15 they were a hell of a lot more affordable than some of the glove options, even though some of the ones suggested above are excellent products. The added benefit (important up here in winter) is that I don't need to worry about waterproof gloves; the Tusks plus a Nikwax treatment mean dry hands.

Food for thought.

These are a little spendy, but I have them and really do like them as well!

TPG Tundra Gloves. They're awesome. I own a pair and have been very, very pleased. Warm, designed to work with heated grips, and I still had the dexterity to work the buttons on my iphone (the tiny volume buttons on the side) through my gloves and pocket. I could feel them.

Dexterity in my fingertips has always been important to me, and these don't disappoint. Highly recommended.

+1 for HippoHands + heated grips.
Then you can wear your favorite gloves.

I have used these same PCI Lee Parks Deersports and they are amazing. I can't believe how warm they are. I have ridden on my naked Monster with no heated grips and no wind protection down to 40 degrees. I've ridden for two hours at these temps and they kept my hands warm.

They have excellent feel, can punch numbers on a cell and refuel without taking them off.

On my V-Strom, with heated grips and hand guards, these gloves keep my hands warm down to 30 degrees on an all day ride.

Love them.

its a bit late this year but next winter im going for the muff option. ive got heated grips that work well for most of the winter, still with summer gloves or thick winter gloves when needed, but there have been odd days in this uncommon cold winter (for us here) where i leave for work at 6am and its still 21F. thats too cold for the grips+winter gloves to cope with. muffs keep the wind chill off your hands.
