Ground Effect Ricochet review£32.00

Essential summer jersey at a bargain price

BikeRadar score5/5

New Zealand bike clothing manufacturer Ground Effect takes a totally different approach to fabrics, and uses its own Intercool woven material for its summer-weight cycle jerseys. And you can tell the quality straight away.

With a polyester inner face and cotton outer, the aim is to shift moisture from skin to air as quickly as possible – and it seems to work amazingly well, with the added bonus of feeling kitten-soft against the skin. 

Although this isn’t a great choice for wet rides under lots of layers, the Ricochet comes into its own when the weather hots up. 

A high neck and decent sleeves offer good sun protection, a three-quarter-length zip aids ventilation and three extremely useful pockets line the scooped, elastic-free hem in style.
