The Alcan was specifically designed for the archetype ADV bike—the big BMW 12000/1250 GS range, but it works just as well on big KTM, Africa Twins, and pretty much any big bike with factory or aftermarket handguards in place*.

At 12 inches deep, the Alcans completely protect the rider’s hands and forearms, even in sleet or heavy rain conditions. Best suited for rain-or-shine commutes, or longer, multi-day rides where weather can change quickly.

These Hand Covers install in seconds and allow you to say goodbye to frozen digits as you cheat the weather to pick up a couple extra months of comfortable “off-season” riding. 

  • Neoprene cuff to seal out wind and rain
  • Plush quilted interior with enough structure it won’t collapse at high speeds
  • Front and side 3M retroreflective reflective panels for higher visibility in low light situations.
  • Best fit BMW GS 1200/1250, KTM 1290, Africa Twin and comparable big adventure bikes.
  • Hand/brush guards are required for proper fitment and safety. Hippo Hands go on and off in seconds and never require tools or hardware.
  • The soft inner paneling attaches to corresponding Velcro straps (included), which attach to handguards secure fitment.
  • Sold in pairs

*We sell a universal aluminum handguard, offered in silver or powdercoated black, that will easily bolt on to most any bike for winter use and help support Hippo Hands.


Hippo Hands has a four different models that fit a range of bikes. The Alcan, optimized for BMW GS bikes and the like, is the deepest in the range, with a full 12 inches of coverage going all the way up the rider’s forearm.

The slightly smaller Rogue model by comparison is just slightly smaller, offering 10.5 inches of hand-swallowing depth, and may be slightly be better suited for riders who spend a lot of time on their pegs and working through a rider range of motion.

The smallest and most minimal of the lineup is the Backcountry model, which is shallower at 9-inches-deep than its bigger brothers is best suited for naked standard bikes, such as the Ducati Scramber, or lighter-weight dirt bikes, where the rider will be moving around the bike to keep control of their bike on a trail.

Last, Hippo Hands offers a Ducati Specific “Duc” model for Ducati Multistrade and Hyperstrada owners. The Duc model features transparent paneling that lets the factory hand guard indicators shine through
