The Apex Bib Shorts are designed with the philosophy of elite performance at their heart. From the proprietary padding designed and manufactured in Italy; to the refined duo-panel racing Lycra providing extreme comfort and a secure fit in any conditions.
The bibs feature a Pro Fit style with longer leg lengths, and are constructed from our Mnemonic Ultra Stretch Advanced Performance Fabric. This special Lycra features a four-way stretch meaning it offers increased maneuverability while keeping its elasticity for longer. The Apex is finished with the latest in high tech trims including high density silicon grippers and a dedicated sunglasses hook on its Elastane Snapback Straps.
The defining feature of The Apex Bib Shorts is the new free floating Argon C7 Pad Insert. This revolutionary Italian-made pad features a free floating 3mm Perforated Foam layer that adapts to your saddle position. This is augmented by a 12mm High Density Shock Absorption Foam Layer.
Fantastic. Fit is perfect and the extra padding really helps.
Brilliant and the service from the Ciovita team is out of this world
Amazing bib....will save up to buy another. Great for long rides.
I typically ride 15-20,000 km's a year on both Road and Mountain bikes and I used to be plagued by constant bruising and saddle sores. I tried everything, trust me. And then, along came Ciovita.... ❤ These bibshorts are amazingly comfortable, well padded and absolutely the best I've ever worn. No more saddle sores or bruised sits bones for me! I originally bought 2 pair in mid-Feb to check them out and loved them so much that I bought another 3 pair 10 days later. Whether it's one of my training rides ahead of a (multi-)stage event or an ultra-endurance event like the 36One, these are my new go-to bibshorts (in fact, they are my *only* bibshorts - after riding with these for the last 3 months, I've just donated a closetful of my old top-of-range C******I and A***s). Great quality materials and finishing. The wider straps are comfortable and won't tear like some mesh versions. The pad is extremely comfortable and well-designed - no abrasion from rough waffled patterns (seriously?) or losing/finding strange rubber things in the wash like some brands! The longer leg pieces (about 10 cm above the knee on me) provide great compression support. Oh, and if you have a bit crash trying for a PR on a nasty descent like I did the other day, Ciovita's generous 50%-off crash replacement policy will lessen the pain! Seriously, these are seriously awesome bibshorts!
Wow!, thank you for the awesome feedback!!
Truly amazing product, I bought it just before the 360one never had it before the time. I did not get uncomfortable or sore once in the 15 hours 11 minutes that I spent on the bike. Definitely recommend this to anyone down long rides over 4 hours.
