Over Easy


Pair the Over Easy with your favourite baggies and a big breakfast. Then hit the trails. Its relaxed fit and HyperActive™ fabric ensure you keep your cool and don't end up with egg on your shirt.

Size S only.

    • Stand up collar to block UVs. Who wants to be labelled a red neck?
    • UPF 50+
    • Outrageously long front zip for turbo charged ventilation.
    • Loose fit and no-elastic hem lets the wind 'blow up your kilt'.
    • WhaleTail™ covers your back when you're stretched to the max.
    • Single 'backpack-friendly' hipster security pocket.
    • Hidden emergency tube repair patch.
  • A lightweight summer fabric packed with technology to keep you cool and dry as. The bi-component knit backs a sharp-looking polyester outer with a smooth layer of nano-charcoal polyester against your skin. Nano-charcoal disperses sweat to accelerate evaporation and is naturally anti-microbial to fight nasty smells. The fabric dries at the speed of light - great when reduced to hand washing on tour - and even performs its quick-drying magic in the wet under a rain jacket.
    • Composition: 75% polyester; 25% nano-charcoal polyester.

    ▹ UPF 50

    HyperActive's 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.

    ▹ 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.

    ▹ Weight

    • 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 Ecover, Ecostore, Earthwise 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.

Fit loose and cool

As a long time wearer of Ground Effect of shorts, liners and tops I recently purchased second Overeasy top. Why - well it is loose, cool to wear and on my experience it will almost last forever withstand multiple wears and washes. The side pocket is also much easier to access than a pocket on the back. However if you like tight cycling tops under the illusion it makes you ride faster then don’t by this top as it suit rides who like a more relaxing ride. Matt Shearer

Super breathable and comfy

Most comfy and least wanky riding shirt I own by far

Over Easy

Great for hot conditions - still gets damp when sweating hard, but then dries out quickly when you have a breather. Rinsed it in a river on a tour and put it straight back on and it was dry in an hour. Much cooler and quicker drying than my Endura Humvee

Over easy

My old Ground Effects shirt has worn so much from carrying the camelback that it's see thru, but 15-20yrs of wearing my favourite riding shirt will do that, so buying the Over Easy as a replacement was a no brainer. It's light, heaps comfy, quick drying,doesn't cling to you when sweaty, and best of all you don't look like a roadie.
