  • 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 EcostoreEarthwise 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 Product

      No strap across the back of the hand but it is not needed. I could have done with a size larger my fault not theres, so I struggle a bit to get them off but a couple of good grips on the back of the two middle fingers helps. Fit is good and they dont move. Doesn't seem to be much Gel when you look at them, but once you are riding there the right amount for me.

      Good glove but a snug fit

      I already have a pair of Quickdraws from several years ago for mountain biking and, when my road gloves fell apart, I thought I'd get another pair. They're a good design and comfortable with pockets on the middle fingers to help remove them and no annoying velcro on the cuff. They must have been refined a little as size M in these ones is a snug fit for me (174cm, 82kg male). Of course I could have returned them for size L but I don't want loose gloves.

      QuickDraw gloves

      Love these gloves. My 3rd pair over the years. Most comfortable I have found, tried others but just not up to scratch for comfort, fit and ease of putting on and off. Give them a try
