Why are extreme enduro riders switching to Hyde handguards?

Posted by

Hyde have been making handguards since the early 1980's - one of the first products husband and wife team Terence and Lynne manufactured in their small garage in Johannesburg, where the company first began.

Hyde handguards have come a long way since then, designed and produced with the same passion and dedication to excellence, but stronger, sleeker, and more user friendly than ever before.

These handguards have a lot to offer.

Hyde also slips in a free set of plastics ( shields and side pieces ) with every complete set of handguards purchased.

Hyde handguards are available in a range of colours, to suit any bike or graphics kit.


If you haven't fitted a set of Hyde handguards to your bike, it's time to make the switch.
