+FAQ
+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.
+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. 

+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.

      I love these gloves!

      Cold fingers hurt. They make me miserable. Mine get extra cold and numb and I get extra unhappy and uncomfortable. These gloves are the best! They don't cling, they make a nice snuggy, lined, dry and protective home for my fingers to live in while I cycle. Get some. it'll make you happy.

      Great gloves but too big

      I measured my hands and was in between small and medium. I bought both but even the small was far too big. I found the gloves bulky to try on but they look warm.

      These gloves are not only waterproof on those wet rides but snuggly too when the temps drop. Thanks Ground Effect!

      Must have gloves for Wellington

      These gloves are perfect for my daily commute in Wellington - on freezing wet days I wear my tight fitting warm gloves underneath and I arrive at work dry & happy. Thank you Groundeffect.
