July 2019: ASSOS end of production sale item
A relaxed, summer mountain bike jersey that makes light work of tough off-road riding.
The Cape Epic edition XCjersey_evo7 deals with harsh conditions head-on. The race leader’s jersey, as provided by ASSOS to the ABSA Cape Epic, South Africa’s wild, untamed eight-stage mountain bike race, this premium mountain bike jersey is a tough, reliable workhorse engineered to withstand the rigours of off-road riding, in the harshest summer conditions. Tested in what is widely regarded as one of the toughest mountain bike races on the planet, the SS.capeepicXCJersey_evo7 is light, breathable and willing to take anything that the Cape Epic throws at it, from dirt and dust to downpours. In our relaxed, comfortFit, the rear panel of the jersey features ASSOS-patented Stabilizator technology to prevent pockets sagging and keep the jersey looking sharp. A full-length zip provides ventilation and three rear pockets offer ample storage for cross-country MTB riding.
Wear over an ASSOS summer skinFoil baselayer for supreme climate control and to give an extra layer of protection in a crash or fall. On cooler days, create an outfit with more warmth by adding armwarmers_evo7 and protect from wind and showers with an outer layer such as our compact BlitzFeder windproof cycling gilet - protection in a pocket-sized package.
Inspired by our long-running collaboration with the ABSA Cape Epic mountain bike race. ASSOS regularFit: A body mapped performance fit that is a little less aggressive than our racingFit. The best of both worlds, wearability and speed converging. ASSOS Stabilizator V7: Knit mesh material with high tensile strength maintains stability and alignment.

Sens Tex: An ultra-luxe fabric used on the underside of the sleeves and neck, adding a new dimension to suffer in comfort. Mesh side panels for accelerated cooling. ASSOS standard rear pockets: Our insight-led placement of the pockets of the rear on the jersey offers the most convenient access and ensures no contents escape – no matter how bumpy the ride. Full-length zip for on-the-fly outfit tuning. Composition: 66% PES, 25% PA, 9% EA
