Keeping your hand flat, measure the circumference around your palm at the widest point below your knuckles (excluding your thumb).
If gloves are too tight it makes your hands feel cold - if in doubt go up a size.
Jet Black

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.

▸ Features
  • 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: 130 grams.
▸ 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.
▸ 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.

Thanks For Your Review

We value your feedback. If you're stoked with your Ground Effect kit then you might like to share it (the review not the gear) with your mates. Thanks again.

Reliable and practical.

These are good gloves - particularly I like the velcro fastenings. They seem warm enough so far too. My old Ground Effect Gloves lasted about 5 years, so I have high hopes for these also.

Great gloves. Toasty warm perfect fit not too clumpy. Not sure on waterproofness as yet

Waterproof gloves

Great gloves. Warm and toasty keeping the wind chill at bay. Of course since I got them it hasn’t rained! They have a good sized cuff for ample wrist coverage so there’s no exposed skin. As usual Ground Effect’s overnight delivery is the greatest.

Sealskinz waterproof gloves

I bought these on spec just before I left for a trip to Tasmania 3 weeks ago - walking not riding (I know I know). And man did they get a work out. We spent the first 2 days of the Overland track in a blizzard & the aftermath. The gloves (plus a merino liner) performed superbly. Pity I can’t say the same for my supposedly waterproof socks, but that’s another story. Paul Bidwell, Brisbane

those poor seals

Sealskin waterproof gloves, not so waterproof. After several hours in the rain they eventually leak through the entire membrane. They do remain quite warm though and I'll keep them for cold drizzly days, not rainy days
