  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish. 

  • Wash your gloves separately - the synthetic suede can cause havoc staining other clothing.
  • Air dry only - no dryers for these puppies.

      High fives review

      These are my got to gloves now and am on to my third pair. They are a great fit and wear well. I like the simple design and that there are no velcro straps to wear out like many other gloves.

      good fit

      havent used them in anger with crash on gravel but feel like they would really help. Nice and comfy and I dont sweat in them which is gr8. Only issue is this is second pair and dont have a "find glove" feature if you inadvertedly drop one out of your car.

      Ground Effect MTB gloves

      Great gloves, really comfortable, easy to look after and use. They work on the phone. I like that they don’t have Velcro straps which I find to be a nuisance. I have been using these Ground Effect gloves for the last four years after trying several other mtb gloves previously.

      High Fives!!

      Great gloves - comfortable from the first time I put them on. With my Chipolatas and the Quickdraws I now have a glove for every season!
