Product Description
About Gerbing
How It Works

This Y-Harness is a long splitter that allows you to supply power to your Gerbing gloves, socks, or insoles when you don't want to use a heated jacket or pants. Pair with our single temperature controller (sold separately) for when a little extra warmth is all that's needed to beat the cold.

All Gerbing installations require a Battery Harness and Temperature Controller for operation (sold separately).


  • Gerbing CoreHeat 12 Y Harness comes standard with your 12V battery heated sock liners


  • Material: PVC
  • Max Capacity: 20 Amps
  • Power: 12V DC to 16V DC
  • Length: 56" and 48" leads

In 1975, a motorcyclist rides to work at an aeronautical machine shop. It's frigid, wet, and blustery. The faster he goes, the colder he feels. The machine shop owner and engineer is inspired; Gerbing heated clothing is born.

For over 40 years, Gerbing has been the industry leader in developing heating technologies to overcome cold weather conditions. The Gerbing patented Microwire system is composed of thousands of conductive filaments 1/10th the thickness of a human hair. Each garment is controlled by a sophisticated power management & distribution system.

We were born from aeronautics, fueled by a passion for powersports, and engineered to keep you warm in the most frigid riding conditions.

All of the 12-volt plug-in products in the Gerbing Heated Gear line may be used alone, or in any combination, as long as they do not exceed the maximum amperage allowed by the customer's motorcycle. Additionally, be sure to keep the following in mind:

  • Use only the Battery Harness sold by Gerbing Heated Gear.
  • Using the Battery Tender harness that may already be installed on a motorcycle is not recommended for powering Gerbing gear.
    • Note: If using the Battery Tender harness you will need to use a female adapter, and will need to confirm that the Battery Tender has the correctly rated fuse selected for your gear combination.
    • Note: By using this method, you bypass Battery Tenders built-in safety provision. If you are only using one harness, we recommend that you install a Gerbing Battery Harness and use the male adapter to charge your battery.


  • We recommend that you keep both harnesses. Install a Gerbing Battery Harness to provide power to the Gerbing gear and use the Battery Tender harness to charge your battery.
  • Gerbing Heated Gear must be used with a way to control the heat. We offer a Dual Bluetooth Controller, Dual Wireless Controller with optional remote, Single Controller, Dual Permanent Controller, and Single Permanent Controller. (See website for details on our Temperature Controllers.)
  • If Gerbing Heated Gear will be worn by both rider and passenger, install two Battery Harnesses to the battery terminals and use two controllers to control each person's gear.
  • NEVER switch on Gerbing heated gear if the motorcycle engine is turned off or running below the indicated engine speed. Damage to the gear and electrical system may occur.
  • Heated gear must be used in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications and instructions.
  • Use the Gerbing 12-volt plug-in heated gear on a 12-Volt DC circuit only.

So I have never used wired heated gloves before, just the batteries for my Hybrids. SO I got me a sweet dual controller with the awesome remote and some cool extension cables to make sure everything reached. I went out to plug everything up and guess what? Without this cable you can't hook them up! Male to male or female to female ends, I not sure which they identify as, but without this cable you can't plug in your awesome gloves. Now I know, now I have a cable and my male and female ends are all... doing it. Luckily I got this quickly, but it arrived just in time for spring so I've got 6 months or so to look forward to using it. I would definitely recommend this to a friend!
ProsTurned my frown upside down! Now I can hook up my male ends to my female ends and get hot on my bike!
ConsDoesn't come with mood music for male plug to female plug insertion.

Just what I needed
My Gerbing 12V jacket liner is sometimes too much for rides above 40 degrees. On those days this Y harness is just what I needed to power my Gerbing 12V gloves when I'm not wearing the liner. The length is perfect to fit down each sleeve and still come out from under the front of my jacket, leaving enough slack to reach my controller.
ProsHeavy duty enough to last. Long enough to reach each glove and the controller plug.
ConsNone that I can think of.
