How to look after your G4 sportswear

 

All G4 clothing is made from technical fabrics suitable for performance, fluidity of movement and muscle compression. Though all our textiles are designed for durability, properly maintaining your bike clothes will also add to their longevity.

Following these care guidelines will enable you to enjoy your G4 clothing for longer while maintaining their technical properties, colour and shape.

How to wash your sportswear

– Close all zippers and fasteners
– Pull your garments inside out
– Hand wash in cold water when only lightly soiled
– Machine wash at temperatures <30 ° C
– Machine wash in a laundry bag to prevent them being pulled out of shape
– Don’t use fabric softener which will damage the fabrics’ technical properties and alter its wicking capabilities
– If necessary, pre-treat the more exposed parts (collar and sleeves) before washing
– Use a mild detergent, preferably one specially developed for sportswear which doesn’t contain aggressive colour brighteners, such as Mir Sport
– As soon as the machine cycle has ended, take the clothes out, don’t leave them there for hours on end
– Wash colours separately and don’t mix sportswear with your ordinary clothes
