+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.

    Great Gloves - that keep your hands warm

    I really like these gloves - although I think the sizing is small. I am normally a small in gloves and I ordered a medium and they fit perfectly. They keep my hands warm and protected on the winter rides. Really like them.

    Perfect fit

    Really happy with the Kingfisher gloves, perfect fit, great quality, and warm enough for the mid afternoon commute home in Canberra winters. Highly recommend

    I have larger than normal ladies hands. Fit snugly so could do with having an XL size

    Hi there Vicky, thanks for your review. If you find the sizing a tad too small you could also look at the Kea gloves. They are the same glove (other than the colour) but as they were designed for mens hands in mind they have a bigger fit. Pedal on, Liam.
