Caring for your clothing is a vital step in ensuring you get the most out of them. By properly caring for your clothes, you can optimize their functional and visual performance while giving them the best opportunity to last longer.


Always check the label of your garment to ensure you are following the recommended procedures.

After a ride, hang your items to ventilate. This will help prevent bacteria and odours from building up and reduce the chances of damaging the material. If the item is very dirty, we recommend rinsing it as soon as possible to avoid stains. Before washing, check that all pockets are empty, then close all zips, velcro, and fastenings. Turn bibs and jerseys inside out.

Fill your washing machine to its recommended capacity. Over or under-filling the machine will make the wash less efficient. Using a zero MicroWaste washing bag (such as a Guppyfriend) may help minimize microfibre shedding from the fabrics.

Wash items with similar colours to reduce the risk of colour transfer. Wash items with the coldest water possible. Washing clothes at 30°C rather than higher temperatures will save around 40% of the energy used each year. Choosing a short spin cycle will further reduce water and energy consumption while still cleaning your clothes sufficiently.

Take extra care with cotton and wool products. Spot treat any stains before washing in cold or lukewarm water.

Air dry items when possible. Most items can be hung to dry. This helps them maintain their shape, makes them last longer, and saves energy compared to using a dryer.

Wool items should dry flat on a surface. To reduce pilling, use a clothing brush or fabric shaver.


When putting on jerseys with silicone gripper sleeves, fold the ends of the sleeves to face outwards before putting your arms through. Once the sleeves are entirely on your arms, fold the grippers back onto your arms to secure them in place. This technique also applies to bibs.

We recommend pulling jerseys onto your arms by moving the sleeve up your arm with short, gentle movements near the end of the sleeve. We do not recommend pulling from the chest or shoulder area. This also applies to bibs.

Do not pull bib straps over your shoulders before they are completely in place on your legs.

Ensure you utilize the guarded zip ends on your jersey as this helps prevent irritation and possible damage to your clothing.

Do not overfill jersey pockets.

We advise against using bibs and jerseys without washing them between rides.

We advise against mixing light and dark colours when washing.

We advise against using bleach on our items.

We advise against using fabric softeners.

We advise against ironing with hot temperatures.
