Top-Shelf Quality at Real-World Prices Ground Effect only sells directly to cyclists – no wholesalers, agents or retailers. Nothing beats dealing with the people who actually design and make the gear you're buying. Plus you get a lot of bang for your buck. Our gear is regularly tested and rated by independent web and magazine reviewers around the globe, often out-performing brands at twice the price.

More Than Kiwi Made Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in New Zealand. Has been ever since we started back in 1994. Most of our fabrics are manufactured here too – many developed in partnership with our suppliers. Manufacturing locally works for us. We operate a quick-response system – holding minimal stock of any one item, but churning out a few more quick-smart when the pile gets low. The upshot is that we are seldom caught with our shelves empty, so orders get despatched the same day you place them. The business end of Ground Effect HQ. Photo: Lee Howell, Kaptured.com

Rock Lobster

NZ$99

RE.STYLED

Avoid being boiled alive when the sun turns up the volume. The Rock Lobster boasts its own theme song for company, plus a stand-up collar and long sleeves for shade on those long exposed days on the road. > Long front zip for maximum venting. > Rear security pocket and twin elasticised angle-pockets. > WhaleTail™ covers all of your back all of the time. > Secret tube repair patch. > Made by us in New Zealand. Fabric: INTERCOOL Sizes: S, M, L, XL (see chart at back) Colours: Limelight; Burnt Orange

Manta Ray UPF 50+ INTERCOOL Summer fabric combining the functionality of synthetic fibres with the familiar look and feel of cotton. A bicomponent knit couples an inner layer of polyester with a textured cotton outer to help manage hot-headed moments. The polyester wicks sweat away from your body while the cotton draws it to the outside, ensuring super-efficient evaporation to keep you cool. Developed by Ground Effect and knitted for us in New Zealand.

Intercool's UPF 50+ rating extends your no-burn time by 50 times over bare skin. Designs with a stand-up collar and long sleeves maximise protection from the sun's UV rays. Yank 'em up if it gets too stifling.

Relaxed Fit Intercool™ tops enjoy a looser fit with no-elastic hems… a good look both on and off the bike when matched with baggy shorts. Plus fresh air can blow up ya kilt so you don’t lose your cool.

NZ$89

Sweating it out on a backcountry epic or zooming around the hills on a balmy summer evening. The Manta Ray delivers hot-weather cycling performance without requiring you to squeeze into a body-hugging mobile billboard. > Stand-up collar to block UVs. > Long front zip for maximum venting. > Single rear zipped security pocket. > WhaleTail™ covers your back.

NEW.DESIGN

A soul mate for your baggy cycle shorts. Its loose fit and Intercool™ fabric keeps you cool. The ZZ Top’s uncluttered design makes it mandatory attire for backcountry junkies and those enduring the morning-after-the-night-before ride.

Equally at home doing battle on the street, in the mosh pit, or sifting at the jump park. Intercool™ fabric does magic things with excess sweat, making the TT2 a genuine technical tee. And like its cousin Frosty Boy – “often licked, never beaten!”

> Raglan sleeves with contrasting flat seams. > Long sleeves protect your forearms from the elements. > Articulated elbows. > Single rear zipped security pocket.

> Ché Guevara print on Mocha tee. > Lawn Dart print on Burnt Orange tee. > Brake Free print on Silver tee.

Road Rage

NZ$119

BRAND.NEW

Race-ready garb without the sponsor’s logo for shredding the singletrack, nailing the bunch or privateers gracing the podium. HyperActive™ fabric wicks away sweat so you can retain your composure at high noon. Team it up with a pair of Supersonics for the complete race twin-set. > Raglan sleeves and multi-panel ‘performance’ fit. > Rear security pocket and twin elasticised angle-pockets. > WhaleTail™ covers your back. > Hidden emergency tube repair patch. > Made by us in New Zealand. Fabric: HyperActive™ Sizes: S, M, L, XL (see chart at back) Colours: Limelight; Azure Blue

Zip Tie UPF 50+ HyperActive™ A lightweight summer fabric from Italy packed with technology to keep you cool and dry as. The bicomponent knit backs a sharp-looking polyester outer with a smooth layer of next-generation polypropylene microfibre against your skin. The polypropylene yarn absorbs almost no moisture, driving sweat away from your body. It even performs its magic in the wet under a rain jacket. The fabric dries at the speed of light – great when reduced to hand washing on tour.

HyperActive’s UPF 50+ rating extends your no-burn time by 50 times over bare skin. Designs with a stand-up collar and long sleeves maximise protection from the sun’s UV rays. Yank ‘em up if it gets too stifling.

Performance Fit HyperActive™ tops feature a closer multi-panel performance fit with flat seams. There’s less flappin’ at speed and the rear pockets are more stable when loaded with cargo.

Median Strip

NZ$129

Middle-of-the-road luxury for backcountry warriors, tarmac heroes and retro-grouches. Odour resistant Heatwave™ Merino is cool enough to wear on all but the hottest summer days. Walk the line. > Raglan sleeves. > Twin zipped rear pockets. > WhaleTail™ covers your back. > Hidden emergency tube repair patch. > Made by us in New Zealand. Fabric: Sizes: S, M, L, XL (see chart at back) Colours: Silver; Burnt Orange

Man vs Wild Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer. It absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle and cool on your skin. However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Heatwave’s polyester component repels moisture to avoid total saturation of the fabric – so it dries faster to keep you toasty.

Snug-as-a-Bug Fit Heatwave™ Merino tops are intended to hug your body, ensuring the fabric sits against your skin to wick sweat away – keeping you dry and not chilling out. A bi-component thermal fabric combining 51% merino wool and 49% polyester. Superfine 18.5 micron New Zealand merino wicks sweat away from your skin while the polyester provides a durable, non-pill outer. Lightweight at just 160gm/m2 and machine washable. Developed by Ground Effect and knitted for us in New Zealand.

Hot ‘n’ Cold As a single garment Heatwave™ Merino regulates your temperature through a wide range of conditions, delivering comfort in all but the hottest climes. Yet it is versatile enough to layer under a WindFoil™ top or HydroFoil™ jacket in winter.

About Us All of us at Ground Effect are cycle nuts… riding on and off road, touring, commuting to and from work each day. We tinker, test and talk (a lot) about bikes, rides, events and clothing.

Juggernauts

10

NZ$129

NEW.DESIGN

Super-sized shorts for those who prefer living long and loose. Cooler and lighter than the Supertankers for enhanced performance at the edge. Paired with the Underdogs mesh liner, options abound for temperature control with leg vents and mesh backed hand pockets. Hoo-hah! > Easy-Rider™ smooth fitted waist with zipped fly. > Open hand pockets plus zipped rear security pocket. > Non-padded action gusset crutch for pedalling freedom. > Made by us in New Zealand. Fabric: Hi-Impact™ Sizes: S, M, L, XL (see chart at back) Colour: Bitter Brown

Luxury Liner

Baggy Shorts Baggies are the default choice of battle-hardened cyclists off road, on tour and around the streets. They combine a loose but not super-baggy fit with an optional mesh liner and moulded pad… providing the performance benefits of conventional stretch shorts with minimal compromise.

Easy-Rider™ Stretch hip panels keep Ground Effect baggies hitched up. Intelligent design reduces surplus fabric for a smoother and therefore more comfortable interface between bum and saddle. There’s also less risk of getting hooked up on technical trails.

Juggernauts and Supertankers are supremely versatile. Add the Underdogs Lycra® mesh liner to deliver no-nonsense performance in the saddle. Whip ‘em out for washing or when moving into après ride mode. Winterise by using a pair of Montezumas three-quarter length shorts as the liner. The Double Happys have an integrated liner – less flexibility but you score two shorts for the price of one.

Hi-Impact™ Heavy duty nylon fabric densely woven to take the knocks. Hi-Impact™ Plus is gruntier than the standard brew with a cotton handle and finish.

Supertankers

NZ$109

Hucking urban obstacles, scything through traffic or doing the post-race lounging thing. These hardwearing Hi-Impact™ Plus shorts are as comfortable and good looking on the bike as off. When combat calls, just add the Underdogs mesh liner and stir to create instant hi-performance baggies. > Easy-Rider™ smooth fitted waist with zipped fly. > Open hand pockets plus zipped rear security pocket. > Non-padded ‘Strictly Ballroom’ gusset for pedalling freedom.

HighRise™ A stretch lumbar panel and HighRise™ rear overlap with your cycle top to keep you covered. No bare skin or lewd exposure.
