    Favoured thermal wear for strutting your stuff on the catwalk or defending your body from plummeting temperatures. Heatwave™ Merino wicks hard work away from your skin and unlike the original, this Model Tee offers more colour choices than just black.

    ▸ Features
    • Heatwave™ 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.
    • S size in selected colours only.
    • Design & made by us in Aotearoa | New Zealand.
    ▸ Tech

    ▸ 
    A bi-component thermal fabric combining 51% merino wool and 49% polyester. Superfine 18.5 micron New Zealand merino wicks sweat away from your skin while the polyester provides a durable, non-pill outer. Lightweight at just 160gm/m2 and machine washable. Developed by Ground Effect and knitted just for us.
    • Composition: 51% merino; 49% polyester
    ▸ Man vs Wild
    Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer. It absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle and cool on your skin. However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Heatwave's polyester component repels moisture to avoid total saturation of the fabric - so it dries faster to keep you toasty.
    ▸ Snug-as-a-Bug Fit
    Heatwave™ Merino tops are intended to hug your body, ensuring the fabric sits against your skin to wick sweat away - keeping you dry and not chilling out.
    ▸ Hot 'n' Cold
    As a single garment Heatwave™ Merino regulates your temperature through a wide range of conditions. Delivering comfort in all but the hottest climes. Yet it is versatile enough to layer under a WindFoil™, microFoil™ or HydroFoil™ shell in winter.

    ▸ 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.

    ▸ 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.

    Worth the price.

    Anyone who knows me knows I wouldn't normally pay this much for a T-shirt but I'm glad I did! Fits great fit, stays warm when soaked in sweat, and my wife especially appreciates the "anti-stink" benefits.
