how do you wash yours? may seem a silly question but i wonder with the 'high tech' materials they are made of if they need any special requirement or can they be bunged in the washing machine.

they have no instructions on them (there is no label) and they dont have any guidelines on the pack they came in.

laug at me me if im being dense and over cautious, but i would like to know!

thanks

    Mine have a label saying left and right as well
  • sh8t, u are correct!!!, in mitigation only one of each (leg/arm) have labels (at least on mine) so that where we were going wrong, cant beleive 2 people oonly checked in one!!


    i either got em from wiggle or ribble, possibly a mixture of both as i have 2 off each in 1 white and 1 black, and as i have now found the label, they are no fakes!

    i find them excellent vortice, keep you warm (i wear leg warmers instead of bib tights so just stick to bib shorts) and have decent water resistance ime
  • jens, mine defo dont have 2 lables just one in 1 of each pair. no left or right either, just the size. l/r isnt needed i dont think legwarmers its clear which is which arm warmers again so long as the seam is in the right place. but to reconfirm mine defo dont have a label in each of a pair.

    One thing missing from the label is 'Turn inside out when washing to prevent lettering coming off in machine'

    Why do you say bio as opposed to non bio (I have never really understood the difference)?
