    ▹ Hazard!™

    Night travel is a spooky experience. Many Ground Effect garments feature our Hazard!™ reflective logo and piping to help remind traffic that we're on the road too.

    ▹ 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.

Great jacket - compact, weather proof and stylish! Also appreciated the rapid turn around when I exchanged for a larger size.

Spooky Top!

As always a miracle garment from GE. I am heading to Nova Scotia next week to really test the level of sprinkle it can handle. So far it has proved to be a comfortably fitting, scrunches up to nothing and repels light showers. Well recommended!

Spooky good spook!

Wow, who would have thought that the arrival of a limelight coloured sculpture of space aged fabric could bring so much joy! Perfect timing too as the mornings have been down around Zero d c. My wife has been riding to work and has not needed hospitalisation for hypothermia such is the quality of the shielding afforded by the limelight SPOOK!

Water proof jacket for riding

Good fit (bought small). Especially like the longer hem line at back, but haven't been riding in the rain yet, so can't vouch for performance!

Perfect for running in the wind & rain …

I needed a jacket for running in the winter that was windproof, waterproof, lightweight, comfortable & not bulky. After several runs of 5-16 km I’d say the Spook fits the bill. Good quality, neat fit (I ordered Medium, which is my usual size) – I wore it with one lightweight top underneath (would be too tight with full clothes). Soft material, so no chafing at the collar.
