High Fives


These full-finger summer gloves protect your hands during terminal dismounts and while dragging your knuckles inside the berm. A double layer of synthetic suede with no additional padding on the palms delivers hi-performance contact with your bars.

    • No-velcro fitted wrist.
    • Multi-panel fit.
    • Fast drying, hardwearing synthetic suede palms.
    • Reflective detailing.
    • Silicon screened prints on palm and fingers provides additional grip.
    • Touch-screen sensitive finger and thumb tips for swiping left, or right.

    • 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 Ecover, 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 repellent finish. 

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

Second pair

This is my second pair of these excellent items. Fell off the other day and had enough time - always so much time - to think of which body part to impact the ground with; and decided that since I had on a fine pair of gloves, I could just skate along on my palms. No injuries, including to the gloves.

High five to HIGH FIVES

I have worn these gloves since they first came out. Apart from hard wearing and excellent fitting the best thing is NO closing Velcro. Easy

High fives

Cyclists need a range of gloves to suit their local riding conditions and High Fives fit perfectly into that spectrum. Once the full blast of summer has passed and the mornings are cooler, this is when there’s gloves come into their own. They’re lightweight, got good grip, fit snugly and save you from cold fingers when you start. They also give you good protection from the sun.
