For those cyclists seeking the highest level of quality European lycra, and not so fussed about big design, the fully pre-dyed Apex Premium Bib Short brings together the sophisticated features of the Apex bib short in a pre-dyed lycra. A higher elasticity offers better compression for an even better fit.
Our pro level Apex Bib Shorts deliver the perfect mix of agile movement and focused support via two different Champion System fabrics (CS Contour and CS Agile) and, to help fend off the fatigue of a day in a grand tour peloton or a long foray into the mountains, we’ve added an optional Carbon fabric (to promote blood flow via gentle compression) to gripper panels on the lower leg cuff and to a supportive panel positioned to the rear below the bib assembly. Finally as an indication of the sheer breadth of custom choices available to Champion System customers - these shorts are available with a standard (non carbon) silicon gripper should you prefer.
