▸ 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. 

  • Wash your gloves separately - the synthetic suede can cause havoc staining other clothing.
  • Air dry only - no dryers for these puppies.

    I bought the small size because I have small hands. However, the fingers are too long for my fingers. It would be great if a shorter-fingered option was available. I often have this problem with gloves and I’m sure I’m not the only person with this issue.

    Gloves- bought by Andrea

    A little long in the fingers-might need XS Provided enough warmth for riding my ebike on a sunny winter’s day! Thank you!

    Super nice durable gloves!

    Most bike gloves fall apart in the first few rides but these puppies last and last. These are are the second pair that I have do my fear of ever having to go without a pair.

    Not like Hi V

    Comfy, grippy, internal finger tip seams don’t try to weasel under your fingernails (I hate that). Great durable 3 season glove!

    Comfortable gloves

    This is the third pair I’ve purchased over the years. Consistently comfortable and durable. I love the ease of getting the gloves on and off without Velcro. Thanks
