Jet Black
A waterproof liner plus water-repellent outer fabric deflect rain to keep your digits warmer, drier and happier. Cycle specific design provides a positive contact with your handlebar grip and minimal slippage between the glove liner and outer. Mmmmmm, cozy.
  • Waterproof, breathable and windproof.
  • SealSkinz® ADD waterproof liner with anti-slip for enhanced dexterity.
  • Neoprene cuff with velcro tab seals at wrists.
  • Anatomically positioned silicon print for grip and comfort.
  • Pressure point gel padding.
  • Tight gloves means cold hands - if in doubt choose up a size.
  • Made by SealSkinz in China.
  • Weight: 140 grams.
+How waterproof are these gloves?
  • The fabric is completely waterproof, but if you are riding in persistent and/or heavy rain - water will eventually run down your arms and sneak into your gloves.
  • Also with extended exercise in warmish conditions you are likely to overload the breathable membrane and get sweaty/damp hands.
  • So not bulletproof, but in those conditions they will still keep your hands dryer than standard gloves.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

      Waterproof Gloves

      These are marvelous, I like that they are water proof and they come far enough up your arm to protect your wrists from the wind. I wear short padded gloves underneath which works really well for comfort & addition warmth. These would be the warmest gloves I've ever had

      Good quality but poor fit. Women ride bikes too.

      The gloves are good, but even the small is too big for my hands. The fingers extend approx. 20 mm passed the end of my fingers. They need a wider range of sizes. I'm 162 cm tall (5'4") and there are a lot of women my height (so assume same hand proportions) riding. Di

      Hi there Di, thanks for your review. Sorry to hear that they do not fit your hand. Feel free to pop them back to us for a refund if they will not work for you. Pedal on, Ernie.

      Very Warm gloves

      Warm and shower proof, but I haven't tried them in a serious downpour yet. Usual speedy delivery from GE,

      Have only worn the gloves on one bike ride so far. Temperatures down to 2 degrees with wind chill factor included and the gloves were not as good as I had hoped. They will be used on rides where the temperature is around 6 to 12 degrees. Waterproofing ability not tested.
