how to order
Ground Effect clothing and baggage is only available directly from Ground Effect. There are no agents wholesalers or shops – so you get to deal directly with the bods who actually design and manufacture the gear… and that lets you score great quality cycling stuff at outrageously sharp prices.
There are several options for ordering…
The Secure Cart on this web site. There are two options:
- Cruise the products, clicking on the cart button to add items to your cart as you go. When you've finished shopping click the "Go To Checkout" button and follow your nose to complete your order.
- If you have a catalogue in front of you and know exactly what you want, then you can cut to the chase and enter the items you need from the pull down menu on the shopping cart. Just click on the "Cart" button from anywhere on the web site to take you there.
- Phone us on 0800 655 733 (within NZ); 1800 145 333 (within Australia); or +64 3 379 9174 from elsewhere on the planet.
