Race-ready garb without the sponsor's logo for caning the singletrack, nailing the bunch or privateers gracing the podium. HyperActive™ fabric wicks away sweat so you can retain your composure at high noon. Team it up with a pair of Exocets for the complete race twin-set.

  Slim Fit - for a closer fit with less flap. Typically favoured by disciples of the tarmac, intent on travelling hard and fast. Size up if you need more room.

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.

  • 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.

    Ground effect Road Rage review

    Look, I've bought lots of other cycling stuff over the years. This year my family bought me a very special birthday present, a jersey and bibs from groundeffect. I could try and rave on but there is only one thing to say. I will NOT buy anything else now. It is SUCH a joy to find a well made quality product . Thankyou family, and thank you Ground effect.

    Road Rage the high vis yellowish green color. As with all items Ground Effect well designed and constructed. A bargain even with shipping to the US.

    I bought the M size which I’ve had before in another GE product. This time the fit was very tight. I then found there is information on tight/loose fitting which I hadn’t seen on the GE website. It may be a good idea to make this information clearer to avoid returns. The L size in the Road Rage fits perfectly and is great quality.

    Road Rage,Another Awesome GE Product

    Received my Road rage top before Xmas, this is to replace my 4 year old R/Rage that is still going strong. These are a great top that I use on my MTB, tough & comfortable. Slim fit, so order 1 size up from normal

    Ge Road Rage is great

    I needed a summer commute top so thought the Road Rage would fit the bill. It is.very comfortable and functional and I have been using it on my longer gravel rides now. I think I need another one - a blue one - for the gravel back roads now! Or maybe the Zip Tie to keep the sun at bay!
