  • 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.

    Just the shot

    As a 'cycling photographer' I have yearned for a pair of full-fingered cycling gloves which allow me the ability to use a camera without having to take the gloves off. My new Kia's fit the bill. They provide the sensitivity I need to operate camera thus saving crucial seconds to get 'the' shot.

    Comfortable and versatile gloves

    Having bought Keas for gravel biking, I’ve also used them for road cycling and even the gym in COVID times. They are very comfortable gloves with the articulated fingers and suede feel palms. Touch screen sensitivity is a bonus. Best for Spring/Autumn rides around 10c+.

    Sturdy simple gloves

    Sturdy gloves with nice minimal/no padding, how I like it! I also like the simple no-velcro-sticking-to-your-other-lanudry elastic closure

    Kea Gloves

    Great product. Functions perfectly. I wanted something for those medium cold days that was not too bulky and these fit the purpose well. I also have a pair of the Ground Effect heavy weight gloves for those freezing cold days.
