Road Rage

16


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.

    • Stand-up collar for UV protection.
    • UPF 50+
    • Raglan sleeves and multi-panel 'performance' fit.
    • Long front zip for maximum venting.
    • No-elastic hem for warm weather comfort.
    • Trio of elasticised rear pockets plus centre security pocket.
    • 'Backpack-friendly' rear zip slider garage.
    • WhaleTail™ covers your back.
    • Hidden emergency tube repair patch.
    • S size in selected colours only.
  • 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 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.

Road Rage great for Spring and Summer

I started wearing my new Road Rage in Spring in Tasmania. The long sleeves are great for the cool starts but are perfect for UV protection as the day gets on. We do a lot of bike touring and these tops are great for long days on the road; cool, comfortable and easy to wash and dry. I like the colours which are also good for visibility.

Great top

A very comfortable riding top. I bought a size L (my normal size) and it fits well - a little more relaxed than some (figure hugging) jerseys but there was no flapping or anything. The material used does a good job at managing heat/sweat on hot days.

Road rage works well

Can't fault this top. it is well made, fits well and the fabric is excellent for what it does and is meant to do. I always buy Ground Effects as not only are they manufactured locally but they are well made and last. I have had some stuff for seven plus years

Road Rage

Mighty fine cycle top. Good length zip for those hot riding days and practical design. Couldn't be more pleased.
