+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 EcostoreEarthwise 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.

+ Shipping
  • Items are generally packed and sent the same day your order is received.
  • Costs $7 by overnight courier within New Zealand.
  • NZ$7 by tracked airmail to Australia.
  • Around NZ$15-25 by tracked airmail to destinations elsewhere in the world - calculated in our shipping cart as you check out. 
    • More shipping and tax details in our FAQ.

      Too tight

      The sizing on these is much smaller than other gloves. I ordered M (the same size as other Ground Effect gloves that fit me well) and had to send them back to swap for a size L as I couldn’t even get them onto my hands! I can get my hands into the L, but they’re still a bit uncomfortably tight. Disappointing that the largest size is L and the sizing so much smaller than other gloves.

      Hi there, thanks for your review. Yes the women's specific gloves are much smaller than our unisex options. You could look at the Kea's if you need a little more room. Pedal on, Ernie.

      These are great gloves for local rides, comfy and good grip. Had mine for about a year now and still going strong (the print has worn off the fingers though and I did have to sew up one seam). Only negative about the gloves is the seam across the palm. On slightly longer rides or if your hands get wet in the rain or quite sweaty, the friction from the seam rubs on the handle bars especially when mtb and has caused me to get blisters multiple times. So now keep them for short local rides and will be buying something more padded with no palm seam for longer ones.

      Wish I had read the reviews

      You definitely need to size up as per a lot of comments. These are really lovely gloves but they size small. I bought the M and they were quite tight, they have loosened up a bit after a couple of wears but the fingers are probably a tad short still. Great for slightly cool mornings on the bike

      Very nice gloves

      Great gloves. They are tight so believe them when they say to get the next size up! I can’t get the fingertips to work on my touch screens, but that’s a small downside.
