▸ 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.

Thanks For Your Review

We value your feedback. If you're stoked with your Ground Effect kit then you might like to share it (the review not the gear) with your mates. Thanks again.

Perfect grip and comfort!

These gloves grip the handlebars well and are very comfortable. They are convenient while using IOS devices on the run, so you don’t have to take them off when using the phone. Easy to use while working the small Apple Watch screen. Very happy…they look cool too!

Good looking, bit too small though

They look like a nice glove. Unfortunately though the largest size (Large) is too small for my hands. I did measure before ordering but it wasn't to be.

Hi5 gloves

I have bought thousands of dollars of clothing from GE and unfortunately the Hi5 gloves I felt gathered the leather in your palm which is my main issue with them - the quality is excellent but for there retail price you will need th R&D Guys to sort out if you want to have a sales market against larger more refined players - keep up the good work

My son won a set of these gloves at the Christchurch Schools Singletracks Race series last year. He rated them so highly (comfortable and reduced chance of blisters etc after a full day in the bike park) that I got him another pair as well as a set for myself. So far so good - got more comfortable after a few wears as they mould to the shape of your hands. Seem durable and have been warm enough for night rides as well. Sizing is generous - I've gone for a medium where I would be a large in other brands. I would recommend for XC and trail and they don't mind a day riding the lift in the Park!
