Night travel is a spooky experience. Many Ground Effect garments feature our Hazard!™ reflective logo and piping to help remind traffic that we're on the road too.

+More than Kiwi Made
Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in New Zealand. Has been ever since we started back in 1994. 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.

  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish.

    Bought for both daughters who find them very warm over the top of one other layer. great to have the visibility of orange when out riding along suburban streets. Both girls have found hip size more suited to slim hipped young women rather than larger NZ sizes!

    Spook jacket (mistake)

    I love the jacket both weight and colour! Unfort. I do not need it really. However, I was trying to get a light weight but not really thin jacket, the same as my husband bought ?2 years ago (Dr Robert Bond), from you but it has no identifiers on it as to what it is called. We thought it may be the Spook, but it is not.

    Hi Caroline, thanks for submitting your review. Looks like your husband has a Turbine from a material that has since been discontinued. It sat somewhere between the thicker soft shells and the lighter microFoil that you have now. Give us a call if you are still unhappy with you Spook. Pedal on, Ernie.

    My daughter has found this a wonderful jacket to wear keeping her amazingly warm when riding. Keeps out those cool autumn breezes. Big problem is that husband has the same coloured Phantom and gets a bit sniffy about both of them wearing orange at tthe same time

    Spooked in a good way

    I love my orange spook jacket, bit lighter than I expected but in this autumn weather just the right windproof (and a bit water proof too if it ever rains!) layer for lots of lockdown rides. Feel very safe as it is SOOO birght. I did read a review pf this jacket that sizes a bit small and do need to comment that the small fits me perfectly BUT I am very petite and for most people usually small the medium might be better.
