  • Multi-panel fit.
  • Fast drying, hardwearing synthetic suede palms.
  • Reflective detailing.

  • 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.

      My second pot of high fives, the first gave many years of service commuting and mountain biking. It was a no brainer to replace them with another pair.

      Nice autumn gloves

      Fit was not true to size chart. Hoping a few more wears will stretch them out. Otherwise a quality product, well made. Great value.

      Hi there, thanks for your review. The gloves should be a little tight to the hand to reduce bunching in the palm. The seams will also settle into place over time however if they are uncomfortably tight pop them back to us for an exchange. Pedal on, Ernie.

      Hands Up to High Fives

      The High Fives are the most comfortable and warm cycling gloves I have ever had the privilege to put on my hands, adding to the pleasure of cycling in the cooler months. To use the expression they ‘fit like a glove” is no understatement, they do! Enjoy the comfort, the protection and the warmth whilst enjoying your cycling. Happy peddling.

      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.
