Apex+ Bib Short

$142.00

(10 customer reviews)

High-performance bib shorts, worn in the WorldTour, that are ready for your fastest rides. Our designers worked extensively on the cut of panels reshaping them to prevent fabric bunching across the hips, providing an aerodynamic surface while in on-bike positions.

With a dual-fabric design, the Apex Bib Shorts are highly compressive and built for all-day comfort in a range of conditions. Silicone injected or fold-over grippers* keep the legs firmly in place while riding. Carefully positioned flatlock seams through the bibs prevent chafing, and the super-soft and lightweight straps are breathable and comfortable.

Features & Fabric

Construction:

  • CS Contour™ Fabric (rear and side panels): compression lycra material that ensures fit and function
  • CS Carbon™ fabric (leg gripper* and rear panel) – provides compression in the thigh area and, via a rear panel, stability across the back of the bib
  • CS Agile™ fabric (bib strap construction): Italian-made fabric, with an open weave for breathability

Details:

  • Exposed flatlock stitching in key areas
  • Radio/iPod pocket for storage

Options:

  • *Choose between our high compression carbon gripper or the silicone injection gripper.
  • If you need longer bibs, choose from 1.5″ or 2.5″ longer.
  • Choice of Granfondo, Veloce or Donna Forte, Italian chamois options. View chamois guide.

    I am a tall female with long legs, and I chose men’s XS with long inseam, and they fit really well. The gran fondo chamois I chose is thick and comfortable for hours.

    Super comfortable pair of bibs. Leg gripper keeps them exactly where you want them and a very comfy chamois, not too thick or thin.

    My favorite leg grippers of all time. Paired with the soft mesh bib straps, these shorts are rock solid. Fit to contour to a riding position (hunched), the uppers will feel quite snug standing upright.

    I now have several of these Apex bibs, purchased over the past 4 years. All of them have super quad silicone grippers. None of the grip has “faded” like some of the other products using silicone like this. Once I coax them up my legs, not an inconsiderable feat due to the grip, they stay, wet or dry, cold or hot. And, I’ve noticed the elastic bands have gotten wider which helps keep blood in the legs. I still haven’t found a use for that pocket between the shoulder blades, though…maybe an ICE card? I love these Apex bibs and look forward to next year’s purchase! Oh, I have to get an XL in the Apex jersey but Lg bibs fit true to size.

    The overall fit can’t be beat but the silicone leg gripper material is the BOMB! These bibs just don’t fail; the shammy is breathable and the fit stays put through long rides, hill climbs and Crit races.

    I am 6’3″ 200 lbs. I wear size large, gran fondo chamois, long length leg and silicone grippers. I recommend anyone right at or over 6′ get both gran fondo chamois and long length legs.

    silicone gripper is fantastic and i recommend it. the high compression gripper is a nice option for those that want a very snug gripper. very snug.

    the agile fabric shoulder straps on these bibs are a really nice touch, feel great against the skin.

    How's the fit? A Little Small: Tight, but wouldn't change size.

    Size Ordered Large

    Waist 34 in.

    First things first, I love these bibs. The material is great. Perfect for hot summer rides. I got the carbon band option. These are a little tighter than I usually prefer, but that is not a deal breaker. 5 stars.
