    ▹ 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. 

    • Wash colours separately.

Digging my shindigs

Have made winter riding much more comfy. When worn with 3/4 merino pants look steezy as too. Compression perfect for after ride recovery but not so tight you can't just wear them as slippers.

All day support

On a recent cycle trip to south Australia the Shindigs were ideal for cold mornings. they were warm and comfortable, gave support to feet and calves and stayed up without slipping all day.

Shindigs = perfect winter feet warmer

I've only done two serious road rides with these, and yet am a big fan! Warm toes, warm feet, warm lower legs. They stay up really well and are very comfy. On cold Taranaki mornings, I'm finding these to be an excellent addition to regular bike shorts.

Shindigs

I bought these for my wife. She loves them. Comfortable, warm and they stay where you put them.
