  • Multi-panel fit.
  • Fast drying, hardwearing synthetic suede palms.
  • Reflective detailing.
  • Silicon screened prints on palm and fingers provides additional grip.

  • 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 Ecostore, Earthwise 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.

      Great gloves for most seasons (in Hamilton)

      Living in Hamilton (NZ), these are good for most seasons. Super comfortable, they get a lot of use commuting, with (unfortunately) occasional "real" mountain biking. I've just ordered a replacement for my original pair, which were new Mar 2017 and have lasted well but now it's time to replace them. Chipolatas are great for the colder weather, with my pair of these also lasting well (new May 2016). Only recently has some stitching come undone on the right palm (point of maximum friction) which I intend to resew myself, as everything else is in really good condition. The Chipolatas get less use (as mostly too mild in Hamilton) than the High Fives, but both these gloves, along with everything else I've ever bought from Ground Effect has fit and functioned as expected, and lasted really well. I highly recommend anything from Ground Effect.

      Demand from husband

      I accidentally ordered these instead of the fingerless bike gloves and husband said "Fantastic, these are great, but order the others now." :D He does love your stuff. But the old fingerless model wore out prematurely at the pull-off feature.

      High Fives

      Love the update in design from previous High Fives which are now several years old and sadly a little worse for wear. As always another great Ground Effect product
