Snowbiking really puts handguards through the wringer - hands have to be constantly protected from branches and twigs, bigger impacts in crashes, and the constant freezing wind and spray of fresh pow. And frankly, very few of the handguards we've had over the years have been up to the challenge...
That's why we designed the C3 FORCEFIELD Handguards! Finally, "wrap-around" actually means full wrap-around coverage! With a sturdy and rigid aluminum bar providing the backbone and a resilient plastic shield doing the legwork, your hands will finally be protected from all angles.
The "basher" bar bend was carefully thought out to lower the risk of hands getting trapped in the event of a quick dismount or crash.
Unbeatable function and snazzy billet flair: the C3 Top Cap Mount system is the sleekest and most adaptable mounting option out there.
- Guaranteed no brake/clutch/throttle cable interference on most popular bikes
- Sturdy and lightweight
- Options to mount GPS or other accessories with M6 threaded holes
- Check out the versatile switch/gauge panel
- Also now available GPS mount panel - perfect for Voyager Pro and more!
- Unless you have a super-high or super-swept bar bend, these will be among the easiest handguards you ever install too!
- It is INCLUDED with the handguard kits above, or optionally sold on its own here
Also check out Shield Expanders for an extra layer of defense against wind, snow, and twigs!
C3 Heated Handlebars are another great addition; they come with threaded ends to easily mount straight to these!
Also, you can complete the high-end custom billet look with our Bar Risers!
(Or see the SHIELDS ONLY at this link.) (Or see the MOUNTS AND BARS ONLY at this link.)
NOTE - Do NOT over-tighten the screws that hold the TTO temp gauge to the C3 Top Clamp or panel. Often, we recommend to actually use the double-sided tape provided with the TTO gauge instead of and/or in addition to the screws (this way it's somewhat soft-mounted). Over-torqued screws can stress or crack the TTO gauge display. Damaged TTO screens due to over-trightened screws are 100% preventable and are NOT considered "warranty-able".
FAQ - Will I need to modify my bar pad to fit over the Top Cap Mounts? A- Yes, you will need to cut out parts of your bar pad No, just add the C3 Bar Pad setup!
FAQ - Will these fit my handlebars? A - We have tested with stock bars on all popular bikes and had great results! One exception is that Yamaha handlebars are a thinner profile at the grips, so our tap-in bar end mounts won't work, so you will need to figure something out there. Also note, if you have a super-high or really swept-back bend, they might not fit perfectly without additional "custom" bending of the "basher bars" yourself.
FAQ - What is the CPBA1382 for? A - This tilted spacer is used above or below the front center mount hole of the one-piece top clamp, so that you have a flat surface to tighten the bolt down against, for example with an LED light. If you're not mounting something through that hole, just put the CPBA1382 in your parts drawer now.
