The Ilmberger hand protectors in carbon for the BMW R 1250 GS offer significantly greater protection against the cold and rainwater. The cleverly chosen design means the hand protectors don’t appear significantly larger than the original part, however, and they integrate perfectly into the overall look of the R 1250 GS.
The carbon hand protectors for the BMW R 1250 GS replace the original component using the original attachment points. Most prominent are the weight savings (as a rule, a saving of approx. 70% compared to the original component) and increased rigidity.
The carbon part is made completely of pre-preg material in accordance with the newest guidelines in autoclaves and in the next step – as usual for Ilmberger – it’s covered with a plastic coating to protect against environmental impacts. This plastic covering exceeds the customary clear lacquer covering in the protective effect, scratch resistance, and durability to a large degree. But the covering does not only score technically, it also clearly underscores the three-dimensional effect of the carbon structure.
