Erlkoenig LTD Short Sleeve Jersey - Men's by Assos
Wrapped in Assos' take on the Erlkoenig dazzle camouflage pattern, the limited edition Erlkoenig LTD Short Sleeve Jersey pays respect to the mystery, speed, and style inherent to prototype race machines.

Other notable features include raw-cut sleeves that create the smoothest possible transition between the fabric and your skin for a precise hold with less pressure, as well as Triple Ramp Pockets that are optimally located for ease of access, security, and stability while riding. Lastly, a full-length zipper gives you full control of ventilation if ...
