El Capitan Jersey - Flying V
The El Capitan Collection represents Eliel’s latest advancement of the Best of the Best cycling gear on the planet. It’s a brand new line of supreme jerseys and bib shorts, designed for your fastest days when you want it all perfectly dialed.
This has easily become my go to “bring the heat” jersey for the suffer-fest rides, and it looks great! This jersey is indeed race tight, but doesn’t sacrifice any comfort for aero gains. I wear a medium Solana Jersey, and I have a medium and large in the El Cap. Both are extremely comfortable, and the large provides me a tad extra comfort on non-race days (however its still nice and snug, extremely comfortable, and something I can wear all day). If you are on the top end of a particular size, consider going up one size in the El Cap jersey, or, rock the actual size for that true race cut feel. I found the bibs to be true to size.
This is by far one of the most comfortable kits I've owned. The sleeves are long and have great retention. Add on top of that it's extremely light weight, it's a KOM/CUP killer. It stretches when it needs to, and it doesn't bunch up. For reference, i'm 5'7" 135 Ibs (on a good day), and I don't have any flapping of fabric when going downhill at 47-49 mph.
All Eliel kits are great but this is easily the best kit I own. Super comfortable and the look is awesome.
