This colour/size is temporarily out of stock. For orders placed today we'll get one to you in a couple of weeks... or consider another colour if you can't wait.

Favoured thermal wear for strutting your stuff on the catwalk or defending your body from plummeting temperatures. Lightwave™ Merino wicks hard work away from your skin. And just like the original, the Model Tee is available in any colour so long as it's black.
+Features
  • Lightwave™ hi-performance thermal bodywear combines a merino inner layer with a fast-drying polyester outer.
  • Raglan cut with flat seams for enhanced comfort.
  • 'Snug-as-a-bug' fit keeps the fabric against your skin to wick sweat away.
  • WhaleTail™ longer back for greater cycling warmth.
  • Design & made by us in Aotearoa | New Zealand.
+Tech

  Weight: 170 gm

+Lightwave™ Merino
A bi-component thermal fabric combining merino and polyester yarns. Superfine 19.5 micron merino wicks sweat away from your skin while the polyester provides a durable, non-pill outer. Lightweight and machine washable.
  • Composition: 46% merino; 54% polyester.
  • Weight: 150 gsm.
+Man vs Wild
  • Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer.
  • Its natural fibres help fend off the big stink on multi-day epics.
  • Merino absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle on your skin.
  • However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Lightwave's polyester component repels moisture to reduce total saturation of the fabric - so it dries faster to help keep your cool. Ideal for going hard 'n' fast, and for wearing under your rain jacket.
+Hot 'n' Cold
Lightwave™ Merino regulates your temperature through a wide range of conditions. Delivering comfort in all but the hottest climes, as well as a thermal layer under a WindFoil™, microFoil™ or HydroFoil™ shell in winter.
+UPF 50
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.

+WhaleTail™
Ground Effect tops are cut with extra length in the back... and in the sleeves too. So when you stretch out in search of the perfect downhill position, neither your shirttail or sleeves will ride-up to expose your back or wrists to the elements.

      Great Product (as always)

      I have never been disappointed by Ground Effect products, and this base layer is no exception. This is a comfortable undershirt for cycling and I love it.

      Review Model Tee

      I bought the Model Tee recently and have found it warm, comfortable, light and all round very useful. The only thing I found a little negative was the colour - I bought the silver, and it sort of looks a bit like a white shirt that needs a wash. Doesn’t really worry me though as it has nothing to do with the performance. Cheers, Tom

      Model Tee

      Great buy, used it on the Alps to Ocean a few weeks ago. It was great layer under the frosty boy and as a tee shirt once the sun came out.

      Model Tee

      Nice top, size is good. I would like it better if the neck opening was the same as the High Tee. Otherwise another great groundeffect product.
