The Apex Bib Shorts now available in navy colourway 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.
I am on the taller side (6' 3") with long legs and these have a nice long inseam. The chamois is great and perfect for longer rides.
I ride quite a lot (+-12hrs per week), indoors and outdoors, and I’ve struggled for years with saddle sores and discomfort in the sit-bones area. I’ve tried ALL the other major cycling-short brands, some of which are twice the price of the Ciovita equivalent, and I could simply never find a solution to my cycling pain and discomfort… until now. The Ciovita Apex Elite shorts are literally a game changer, and I can’t recommend them highly enough (and I promise that I’m not affiliated to Ciovita in any way). The shorts fit really snugly, and everything stays exactly where it is supposed to. The chamois is incredibly comfortable and my saddle sores and bruised sit-bones are honestly a thing of the past. These are the only shorts I will ride with now.
Without a doubt the most comfortable thing I have ever ridden in! I'd sleep in them if my wife let me :)
