Slide On Cruise Assist – Hand Rests

There is nothing worse during a long ride, than having wrist fatigue and hand cramp. You just can’t wait to stop and stretch out the fingers. This fatigue is caused due to prolonged gripping of the throttle.

Cruise control is not recommended to be used in traffic, through hills or windy twisty roads. They are only suited to long straight stretches of road or highway.

A Slide on Cruise Control with Hand Rest (also known as a Cramp Buster) is a simple solution to this problem. These simple “Slide-On” devices do not lock the throttle on and can be installed without tools. They are available in 7/8″ (22.22mm) or 1″ (25.4mm) diameter to fit most motorcycles.

With a Slide On Cruise Control with Hand Rest, you can effortlessly have full control of the throttle. To install it, simply stretch it open and slide it onto your throttle hand grip.



How it Works

To use, rotate the Cruise Control forward to loosen grip on the throttle. When you have set the position of the throttle to the required speed, apply pressure with weight of your palm on the cruise control to hold the throttle position. Now you can relax your fingers and stretch them out a bit. This small plastic device also allows you to rest your palm.

To slow down, simply spin the Cruise Control forward to release the throttle and the motorbike will decelerate.
