+Washing

  • 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.

    This time of year I usually 'double glove' for those 5:30am rides but not with Chipolatas. Finger tips remained toastie warm. Cheers Ground Effect.

    Great fit and comfort, warm enough

    Fingertips still a tiny bit cold in strong wind sometimes but for the most part it can handle NZ's winter perfectly fine!

    Hot Sausages

    Bought these for my partner as she was complaining about cold hands on the daily commute. She only rated a 4 / 5 as she said you cannot give 100% . However the cold finger complaints have ceased. I have the same gloves and I gave them 5 / 5.

    Good Gloves

    Replacing BBB brand gloves that were supposed to be -5 degrees, these are much warmer, keep the wind out which keeps the fingers much less frozen. Well built. Come at a good price too.
