Keeping your hand flat, measure the circumference around your palm at the widest point below your knuckles (excluding your thumb).
This colour/size is temporarily out of stock. For orders placed today we'll get one to you in about a week... or consider another colour if you can't wait.
Windproof warmth for your digits on those chilly morning jaunts to work, or while out night riding your favourite singletrack. Reinforced palms provide extra protection for your mitts and ensure positive contact with your bike. Get 'em while they're hot.
WindFoil™ combines the insulative benefits of a polyester micro-fleece liner with a smooth, water resistant, softshell exterior. A totally windproof, yet highly breathable membrane is sandwiched between the inner and outer fabrics providing effective protection in cold, dry conditions.
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.
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.
