Waterproof Gloves


A waterproof liner plus water-repellent outer fabric deflect rain to keep your digits warmer, drier and happier. Cycle specific design provides positive contact with your handlebar grip and minimal slippage between the glove liner and outer. Mmmmmm, cozy.

    • Waterproof, breathable and windproof.
    • SealSkinz® ADD waterproof liner with anti-slip for enhanced dexterity.
    • Neoprene cuff with velcro tab seals at wrists.
    • Anatomically positioned silicon print for grip and comfort.
    • Pressure point gel padding.
    • Tight gloves means cold hands - if in doubt choose up a size.
    • Weight: 130gm
  • ▹ How waterproof are these gloves?

    • The fabric is completely waterproof, but if you are riding in persistent and/or heavy rain - water will eventually run down your arms and sneak into your gloves.
    • Also with extended exercise in warmish conditions you are likely to overload the breathable membrane and get sweaty/damp hands.
    • So not bulletproof, but in those conditions they will still keep your hands dryer than standard gloves.
    • 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.

Waterproof Gloves

Great gloves but for the gusset which way to narrow.. all real struggle to put them on, which is a let down for an otherwise great product which does the job it is made for, keeping my hands dry and cosy.

Best gloves ever

Fit like a glove

They were here in no time and they're everything they said they would be. Brilliant

good waterproof warm gloves

Quality obvious when looking at them, and if you keep your raincoat over the top of the wrist, hands stay warm & dry. My fingers are long and skinny, and if yours are the same, it might be worth going up a size on the size guide suggestion. They have no elasticity compared to thinner/non waterproof riding gloves, and as such if putting a lot of pressure through the web between index finger and thumb (ie road bike position - don't notice it on MTB) the slight pressure on the tips of the digits gets a little annoying after a few hours.

Waterproof gloves

These gloves are anything but waterproof! I was in a brief shower and my hands got soaked. It was then very difficult getting them on again later due to the inner layer being hard to get fingers in.


Ground Effect

Hi Robin. Sounds like they are not doing the trick for you. We need to take a look at them. Could you fire them back to us in the post: Freepost 1861, Ground Effect, PO Box 4536, Christchurch. Pedal on. Ernie
