How to get some Epic gear


It’s the leading mountain bike race of its type in the world … and it has the gear to go with it. The Absa Cape Epic Logo Store stocks world-class cycling gear, of course, but that is not all – the discerning buyer can get arrange of Absa Cape Epic-inspired products, from down or waterproof jackets to backpacks and powerbanks.

And it is more than just a pop-up shop during the Untamed African Mountain Bike Race – it is a year-round online store.

For riders preparing for the 2019 Absa Cape Epic there are a number of items which will prove practical during the long months of training – as well as helping you complete the event should a mechanical mishap strike. The first of these is the SCICON MTB Saddlebag. Constructed from ripstop nylon and boasting an 800ml capacity, it is large enough for all the tools of the trade. Fill it with a spare tube, 2 CO2 canisters, a CO2 adapter, a tubeless puncture repair kit and the Epic Multitool, to ensure you have every mechanical eventuality covered. 

The Epic Multitool warrants more than a brief mention, as it – like all the Logo Store products – has been proven in the crucible of the Absa Cape Epic. Made from lightweight but durable aluminium it weighs in at just 92g and includes 13 tools; namely 2/2.5/3/4/5/6/8mm and T25 hex wrenches, philips and flat blade screwdrivers, 8/10mm box wrenches and a chain tool.

While you’re in the process of shopping for Epic gear you can add an Epic Water Bottle or two to your cart too. These 750ml bottles are BPA free and have a soft nozzle for comfortable drinking on rough terrain. They also feature a wide lid, which makes refilling them on the fly at water points that little bit faster and easier.

Not all the items in the Logo Store are for use on the bike. You can show-off your status as a Absa Cape Epic participant or fan by rocking out in all manner of off-the-bike lifestyle apparel. From t-shirts to the famous Columbia down jackets; every eventuality and weather condition you might face while preparing for, or hanging around after a mountain bike race is covered. A sudden downpour, for example, can be tamed with Columbia’s men’s and women’s waterproof jackets.

There are also Absa Cape Epic inspired products for the office or business trips. These include the SCICON Business Pad – an A4 leather bound note pad – the SCICON Backpack and the Amped Blade X Epic – a 10 000mAh power-bank with a dual port. Riders can also support one of the Cape Epic charities through the logo store. By purchasing a charity bracelet donations can be made to the Cape Leopard Trust, Qhubeka, Laureus-, IRONMAN- and Anna Foundations.

The Logo Store offers the peace of mind of a 30 day, no questions asked return policy – which is fantastic should you get your sizing wrong – and free shipping within South Africa to orders of R1 000 or more. For more information or to shop online visit the Logo Store at
