  • 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.

    Excellent Gloves

    Nothing better than buying a quality pair of gloves made in our own backyard. Thanks Ground Effect. Best gloves I've owned in a long time.

    High Fives - Aussie Review

    Wasn't too sure your 'Large' size would be ok for my large-ish hands - but they fit perfectly - nice and taught without being too tight. Out on the trail, I am not really aware I have the gloves on, which is a great compliment to how well they fit. How do they perform when dragging knuckles on the rocks? - I'm hoping I will not be the first to report on this feature any time soon. Would I buy them again - you bet I would!

    My High Fives

    I've only had them a few weeks so too soon to comment on long term durability but i have done some big rides in the last few weeks and so far these are the best cycling gloves I've ever owned. Nice fit and very easy to get on and off which is important to me. Very comfortable and no signs of wear after 3 weeks of St James Cycleway, Old Ghost Road, Paparoa track (the open sections), Dunn Mountain track, The Timber Trail and a few shorter rides.
