Multicolour indulgence for the bike park and after-match sorties to the icecream parlour. Heatwave™ Merino smells good and wicks away the hard work. Would that be one scoop or two?
▹ 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.
▹ More than Kiwi Made
I have the previous long-sleeve Neopolitan which was my favourite winter riding jersey. I was gifted the new 3/4 sleeve version and it is even better, and is likely to extend use to 3 seasons.
Yet again Ground Effect does it brilliantly. Top quality fabric, well thought out and put together, the Neapolitan is great as a base layer on those winter rides and can double as a casual top. Then of course there is the great service and speedy delivery no matter where in NZ. Keep up the great work.
I think this is my alltime favourite GE piece. Looks awesome, fits great. I wear it all the time.
Ground Effects never disappoint and again the Neopolitan tops come up trumps. Comfy for short or long rides and looks great.
Bought my Neapolitan as a base layer for winter riding but have found it so good that I wear it all day long even when not riding. Fit is perfect and the Merino wool regulates body temperature without getting too hot on warmer days. I find that on colder days it is warm against the skin but does not get cold and clammy when I stop at the coffee shop during an otherwise cold ride. Recommended
