The chart is a guide only. If you fall in-between sizes, the right size for you will depend on your body shape and how loose or tight you like to wear your clothes. It's no hassle to swap an item, if your first choice is not the best fit.

  • Designed & made by us in Aotearoa | New Zealand.
▸ Tech

▸ 
Approved clobber for terrorising the city, cruising the highways or café surfing. Unfashion garments combine comfort on the bike with sharp looks for when you hit the pavement.

▸ 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
170 gm
▸ Washing

  • 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. 

  • Cotton shrinks. Your Tee may lose a couple of centimetres after its first wash.
  • Dry cleaning or ironing screen prints will cause irreparable damage. Best not too.

Poor quality. I sent it back.

I have bought a lot of stuff from Ground Effect over the years. Great design, quality materials and manufacture. It all gets worn al lot and it’s all still going. I was eagerly anticipating this classy looking shirt but was very disappointed. Thin fabric, uneven hems, poorly finished buttonholes. Get your game back to where it was, folks!

I'll be looking the part Christmas Day this year and while I might not be allowed to ride on Christmas Day I'll certainly be thinking about it all day and no doubt striking u[p conversations about cycling at any possible opportunity.
