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

      Great service and products

      When everyone else (read:T7) were struggling to get items to me in 10 days, GroundEffect got them to me in 2. The product is good quality (wasn't the only thing I got, it's all good!), I will definitely be shopping here more!

      The Best.

      My wife and I have used them for many years for almost daily cycling. We wouldn’t use any other gloves.

      I drove over 70kms in my car to find my lost glove because I love them so much

      You know when something is sooooo good that when it goes missing you have to search for it. My search for my favourite gloves was 70km round trip in the car. I went for ride today and put my gloves in my Ground Effect rain jacket back pocket in case it rains as spare along with a banana go for a great ride. Only reason I did not wear them was it was wet and cold so had my winter gloves on… Somehow when I went to get my banana out of my pocket 50kms into my ride one of the gloves dropped out. Finally I got home only to realise and was devastated that my most comfy glove was missing. In my car I get and found the glove where I had ate my banana. Next thing on my shopping list is now to get another set of these awesome comfy gloves for long rough rides on gravel roads as they seem to fit better, no Velcro which makes them comfy and for some reason not overly padded like other gloves which I found my hands do not get sore compared to popular brands of bike gloves. Thank you Ground Effect for another good product

      Pretty good

      Nice weight for summer road / gravel riding. Slightly more wrist coverage would be good for keeping the sun off. Nothing can compare to the old ones with full thumb cover and velcro wrist closure.

      Great cycling gloves

      I lost one of my beloved Quickdraws on a ride earlier in the year. I put up with using other gloves until I could stand it no more and ordered new ones. I was so happy when they arrived. Great fit (small for small hands), comfortable, great for all weathers and give me handling confidence. Thanks Ground Effect.
