▸ 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.

these gloves are comfortable and hard wearing without being too thick . I like a full finger glove for the extra protection that they offer.

High Five gloves

Used these gloves on a recent ride on the Heaphy. They were a comfortable fit, quick drying, kept my hands cool enough in the sun and take the chill off the cold morning air. Definitely recommend these.

High five for the High Fives

When it's still a bit chilly when you start your ride, but warms up before you've finished, these gloves are perfect. You almost forget you have them on, most comfortable gloves I've ever had. AB

I’ve had a pair of trek fingerless gloves for the last 20 years and splashed out on some new high fives after they finally fell apart - christened them by riding the heaphy and ghost road for 6 days - these babies performed just like a GE gear - perfect for the job - if you are after a 3 season glove, comfort, style, practical and durable - easy to take on and off and a nice slim almost not there fit

These gloves are great - comfortable and snug fit, no bunching of fabric when gripping the handlebars, a cuff tab to make pulling them on easy, soft backing for wiping away the nose drips, and they work on smart phone screens. The only minor improvement I’d suggest is a clip or velcro to keep them together when drying them out.
