Taking proper care of your kit can be a pain but its worth it to ensure that your kit performs to the best of its abilities for a long time.
Technology and Emotion
At Mektrax, we are passionate about creating products with technology so that you can live the emotion of cycling. We carefully design and manufacture our garments with selected fabrics and materials. They are designed to allow you to deliver your best performance, in comfort while looking great. However, they do require extra care when using, washing and drying to make sure you get the most of them. So here are our care recommendations.
Before and During
Never use sun creams, oils and muscles heating products under the elastic garments. These type of products speed up the wear of the textile fibers made of Spandex.
To avoid pilling, we suggest not to use rough saddles and keep the items away from pointed or rough objects.
Never hang the garments directly under the sun or inside wet and airless rooms. In case of high sweating of the body, give wash to the garments after each use in order to protect the fibers from bacterias.
To avoid the wear of the fabrics, our suggestion is washing them after each use in order to maintain the quality of the fibers.
Washing and Drying
Hand washing in cold water is recommended for longer lasting garments.
If you use the washing machine, washing bags, a gentle cycle and warm water (max 30º) are suggested. Wash your garments alone in order to avoid rubbing and consider washing dark and bright colours separately.
Always use high quality washing detergent.
Before washing, reverse the items keeping the stitching outside.
Do not wash the garments together with gloves, backpacks and shoe covers made with velcro inserts.
Never use dryer machines.
To remove water in excess, wring out the items by hand.
Do not use fabric softeners and bleachers.
Please remember to always read the care label on each garment before washing.
