Pactimo Launches Jersey To Fight Ebola

November 24, 2014

Pactimo donates $30 from the sale of each jersey to fight this deadly disease

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO. November 24, 2014 – Since the spring of this year, Western Africa has been ravaged by an Ebola epidemic that has claimed over 5000 lives and has now reached Europe and the United States.  The outbreak has decimated entire villages – particularly in the hardest hit nations of Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea – leaving broken families and orphans in its wake.

In response to this growing crisis, Pactimo is launching the Fight Ebola jersey. Pactimo will donate $30 from the sale of each jersey to support the work of international organizations Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders) and HOPE worldwide in the fight against Ebola.

“Having just returned this summer from a trip to West Africa, I can say that the battle against Ebola is beyond local resources and demands the help of many around the world,” said Pactimo CEO, Frank Kim.  “Pactimo is already involved in supporting several non-profits that are active on the African continent like water.org and World Bicycle Relief, so this is the right thing for us to do.”

This beautiful design reflects the vibrancy of West African culture and was created in collaboration with locals in the region. Printed on men’s and women’s specific Ascent jerseys (race fit, Quattrolite fabric, Zero-weight mesh side panels, rear reflective trim, full length zip), these collector’s items will take a special place in your cycling wardrobe.

Pactimo Women’s Apex Jersey Review

November 18, 2016

I tested out the new Women’s Apex kit recently, and was pretty impressed. The Apex Jersey is super lightweight and breathable. The back and sleeves are made of a mesh-like fabric that offers great air flow on hot days and wicks moisture really well, even while wearing a hydration pack.
