  • Hazard!™ reflective logos on each calf for night time visibility.
  • Designed & made by us in Aotearoa | New Zealand.
▸ Tech

▸ 
4-way stretch winter luxury uniquely combines superfine NZ merino against your skin with a tightly woven, hardwearing nylon outer and lycra to stretch and move with your body. Warm as pie. Developed by Ground Effect and knitted just for us.
  • Composition: 45% nylon; 39% merino; 16% lycra.

▸ Hazard!™
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.

▸ 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. 

  • Wash colours separately.

Kneecaps

The kneecaps are an excellent product with the usual high quality that I have come to expect from Ground Effect, as all of the gear I have previously ordered has been long lasting.The rubber lining in the upper elastic stop them from sliding down, even after washing and regular use.

Kneecaps - I don't know how I got by without them!

These are great! I never wear full length tights because I get too warm, but these are just long enough to keep me comfortable without overheating. Great idea.

Groundeffects Knee warmers

These Knee warmers are such a nice fit you don't know you have them on. The best part is they keep my knees toasty warm while riding and dry out quick when on overnight excursions. Thoroughly recommend.

Kneecaps fabulous

I bought some kneecaps recently as I have arthritis in left knee and was looking online for something with merino. Very quick service - I ordered one afternoon and they were delivered next day. They are stretchy and snug - great for cycling in the winter, and my knee is happy again. Strongly recommended!
