Barkbuster handguards have been around since 1984 and are one of the most well-known names in motorcycle hand protection. It’s rare to see a brand become so well established with its customers that the product becomes synonymous with its purpose, when shopping for a set of handguards often you’ll hear people say “I need some Barkbusters” instead of “I need some handguards”, and this is just a testament to the quality of Barkbuster handguards.

The heavy-duty construction of Barkbuster handguards made them a massive hit with riders across the enduro and motocross scene, providing durability and protection at a great price, combined with a simple and straightforward installation process.

The Barksbuster range of products are mostly made up of handguards, but they also offer some handguard accessories, such as indicators and hand warmers. The most popular product in the range is the Barkbuster EGO series of handguards, featuring a wrap-around style, mounting on the handlebar inside the controls on each end, and securing in the bar end, this style provides the most coverage and most secure fit. The JET series is a similar product, but do not use the bar end insert, instead of allowing for an open-ended handguard, this allows more flexibility in rider movement, and while there is a slight comprise of protection, the flexibility is often favored by motorcross riders simply needing to shield their hands from rocks and projectiles from other riders. This style also prevents the rider’s hands getting caught in the guards, in the case of a crash. Compared to the EGO, the JET handguards are typically used in enduro settings, to protect from tree and branches hitting the rider’s hands.

Barkbuster offers its entire range of products in numerous colours to match OEM brand colours, as well as options for on-road use, particularly on adventure or touring models of bikes.
