+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.

+Washing

  • 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.

    Bandana

    It's stretchy so you only need to put one twist in it at the back and it stays put. Keeps my airpods from falling out and sweat from getting in my eyes.

    Great quality

    Wonderful bandanna's, on a hot day they save the day. As usual Ground Effect's products are of great quality and the best biking gear around.

    Bandana

    I don't like wearing a beanie under my helmet but sweat in the eyes are a bit of a problem so thought I would try the bandana. Works great, is slim enough to not cause a bulking problem, seems to soak up sweat quite well and has decent length for tying and the knot doesn't loosen. A great buy, thanks.

    Keeps the sweat out of your eyes

    Saves your helmet from getting yucky and spongy, really simple. This time round I bought a couple so that I always had a clean one
