Flying V El Capitan Jersey
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.
High quality jersey, the material is something like I've never felt before. It feels very fast, and it is comfortable to wear on long rides. The fit is fantastic, but very thigh, mostly around the arms. Don't be afraid to size up. It's definitely one of my favorite jerseys.
The entire El Cap Collection is the best on most top-of-the-line kit Eliel makes and it shows when you are wearing it. Fair warning that this kit is very aero fit and if you like a more relaxed fit, I would size up one size. The jersey is form-fitting and doesn't show any wrinkles but is also extremely comfortable. It stretches well and the pockets hold a grip of snacks so you never go hungry on long rides.
Hi, Actually I will be contacting Eliel about an issue with the Capitan Jersey I bought recently. The third time I put it on I noticed white threads poking out from the fabric on the arms where it stretches. Looks like the fabric is breaking down!? I bought Men’s size small. I am 5’7” and weigh 125 lbs so I don’t think I’m trying to squeeze into a too small jersey. I have been an Eliel customer for years (EFT one year) and have never had an issue like this with the fabric. I’ll try to contact someone at Eliel to discuss. Thanks! Peggy
Eliel has the best-fitting jersey that I've tried hands down. Fit is snug & form-fitting but with enough stretch so that it doesn't feel like it will bust at the seams. I've also noticed the fit is optimized for being in the riding position, making it super comfortable on the bike. After a couple washes, material holds tough and doesn't pill or fray. Very happy with purchase.
I wear medium all of the time, however this runs small. I would have rather went with a large had I had known.
