GROUND EF­FECT GEAR

Ground Ef­fect are an AMB of­fice favourite, and the new Hy­droslides and Neopoli­tan com­bi­na­tion looks like that will con­tinue. While the Neopoli­tan sees a new colour for the pop­u­lar ¾ sleeve trail top, the Hyr­doslides are all-new. These shorts com­bine a high strength front with a wa­ter­proof back, over the knee length and sealed seams these should be a go-to for any rides in sub­op­ti­mal con­di­tions!

RRP: $119 Neopoli­tan, $165 Hy­droslides ground­ef­fect.co.nz

BRIL­LIANT RE­FLEC­TIVE

Whether you’re out be­fore dawn, bust­ing night rides or just crawl­ing home after a post-work trail ses­sion, be­ing seen when get­ting to and from the trails is im­por­tant. Bril­liant Re­flec­tive use a 3M Scotch­lite Re­flec­tive ma­te­rial that can be ironed on or stuck on cloth­ing or equip­ment, in­clud­ing colour matched op­tions so you barely see it in the day­time. This is well-priced peace of mind!

RRP: $19.95 swift­sports.com.au LAZER HEL­METS

Lazer have found a new home with Shimano, and while we’ve loved their light­weight Z1, the Blade (top) is a good value XC hel­met while the Roller (bot­tom) has a vi­sor and some ex­tended cov­er­age, suit­ing trail rid­ing. We hear Lazer are ex­pand­ing their range with some more trail and en­duro hel­mets to come. Based on the qual­ity of what’s on the mar­ket we’re keen to see what pops up.

RRP: Blade $149 / $169 MIPS Roller $109 / $129 MIPS shimano.com.au

AMPLIFI SALVO POLYMER KNEE GUARDS

Com­fort, low weight and pro­tec­tion? Yes, all three are pos­si­ble in a knee guard with the Amplifi Salvo. With 5 dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als used for form­fit­ting func­tion, the soft cell pro­tec­tion with­stands re­peated hits and has a CE cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. These should be spot on for Aus­tralian con­di­tions, and all-day com­fort.
