+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 Ecostore, Earthwise 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 repellant 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 $9 by overnight courier within New Zealand.
  • NZ$12 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.

      Cosy mitts

      I needed something warmer for the early starts in Kapiti this winter. Can always rely upon Ground Effects to produce the goods. These gloves are better than regular wool or cotton gloves, but you still have feeling when searching for the gear levers etc. Good price and arrived within two days. Happy biker with warm hands.

      Keeps hands warm and dry in winter

      Bought this for my partner to commute in Melbourne winter. He says it does a good job keeping his hand warm and the water resistance is enough for most days. I find this glove very affordable even with shipping to Australia. Highly recommend!

      Not as warm as I was hoping

      I’d read all the reviews before buying these and was very keen to try them for the first time. I get very cold hands & feet, & suffer from Raynaurds. Unfortunately my hands were cold at the beginning of the ride. I also found the position of the seams on the thumb’s especially exacerbated the cold. We had 2 sizes in the house with the medium being too small across the palm. I found that the large was only marginally bigger, so I’m not able to comfortably fit a liner inside the gloves. I usually really rate Ground Effect gear, but this time I’m very disappointed.
