+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 colours separately.

+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.

      shindigs

      the shindigs are the best thing i have purchased. I ride road and MTB super early and it is it getting cold but the shindigs keep me warm as. So many thanks for a great product. I have a few articles from Ground Effect and the quality is great.

      Shindig shining ‍♂️

      Just completed 55.5Km Mudgee Classic on the 1st May. The 8 am start was freezing. My shindigs were great and stayed up right though the ride. Great product.

      Dig my Shindigs

      Have had these on for a couple of cold / breezy rides. I love how they take the chill off your calfs and lower legs. I used them with some knee warmers and they worked great. When I was getting a little warm, I folded them down in half which worked really well.

      Perfect riding socks

      I love the long shindings for extending the length of the new length riding pants. They look super stylish with the stripes when pulled up to knee height and when I warm up I can scrunch them down. So good, I had to order a second pair as it’s all I wear now.
