Wairoa Gorge Neopolitan Merino - unisex


Proudly NZ made. Multicolour indulgence for the bike park and after-match sorties to the icecream parlour. Heatwave™ Merino smells good and wicks away the hard work. Would that be one scoop or two?


Heatwave™ hi-performance thermal bodywear combines a merino inner layer with a fast-drying polyester outer.

  • Elbow pad friendly three quarter length sleeves.

  • WhaleTail™ covers your back.

  • Single 'backpack-friendly' hipster security pocket.

  • Sewn in emergency tube repair patch, because you can never be too well-prepared.

A bi-component thermal fabric combining 51% merino wool and 49% polyester. Superfine 18.5 micron New Zealand merino wicks sweat away from your skin while the polyester provides a durable, non-pill outer. Lightweight at just 160gm/m2 and machine washable. Developed by Ground Effect and knitted just for us.

  • Composition: 51% merino; 49% polyester.

Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer. It absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle and cool on your skin. However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Heatwave's polyester component repels moisture to avoid total saturation of the fabric - so it dries faster to keep you toasty.

Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in New Zealand. Has been since back in 1994.
