The Absa Cape Epic Contego Jacket is a customised version of our Apex Contego Cycling Jackets.
The high quality fabrics used in the construction of this jacket are what really set it apart. There are three distinct leading edge fabrics, which each contribute to the skin tight fit and temperature controlling attributes of the Contego. Firstly, the jacket features a Vita-therm quilted front panel with Comforttemp air fibre which is designed to offer superior insulation in extreme conditions. The sleeves and side panels are made from brushed fleece Lycra with a hydrophobic finish, which helps keep you warm without sacrificing range of movement. Finally, the back of the jacket is constructed from 3D high performance Lycra, which adds extreme flexibility.
The pro fit cut means this is a tight fitting, high performance jacket 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 Jacket is packed with even more advanced features with 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.
Many features that made our first generation Contego Jackets so popular have been retained in the design including a 2 way YKK Front Zipper, Broad Elastic hem with silicon grippers, and our proprietary Anti-Bounce System to ensure pocket stability when heavily laden.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS ITEM FEATURES OUR PRO FIT AND IS INTENDED FOR PERFORMANCE CYCLING, IF YOU WOULD LIKE A LOOSER FIT BUY A SIZE UP.
