The Absa Cape Epic Contego Gilet is a customised version of our Apex Contego Cycling Gilet.
The Contego Gilet is designed to keep your core warm with a quilted front panel featuring ComfortTemp air fibre, which offers superior insulation in extreme conditions. The quilted panels now feature a narrower design for more efficient insulation.
The side panels are made from 4-way stretch Vitatex, which aids flexibility and features a UPF50+ protection, while the back features state of the art 3D polymide/elastane.
The pro fit cut means this is a tight fitting, high performance gilet which hugs the body and offers ultimate comfort when up out of the saddle, riders who want a looser fit are advised to buy a size up.
The Contego Gilet also features a hidden back pockets for secure storage, as well as one waterproof zipper pocket for storing valuables. Visibility is also key to the design with reflective details placed in key strategic areas around the garment.
A 2-way YKK Front Zipper gives you more temperature control and access to your jersey pockets, while the broad elastic hem with silicon grippers ensures the gilet stays in place as you change position on the bike. Each Gilet features our proprietary Anti-Bounce System to ensure pocket stability when heavily laden.
The beauty of the cycling gilet is its versatility, which makes it a suitable kit choice for a wide range of conditions. It can be combined with short sleeve jerseys, long sleeve jerseys, arm warmers or windproof jackets to custom build kit for almost any riding conditions.
