Apex Carbon Bib Short

Customise Your Outfit

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 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.


  • 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) – extremely lightweight and highly breathable


  • Choice of Granfondo, Veloce or (women's specific) Donna Forte Italian chamois options
  • Lightweight and breathable bib assembly
  • Exposed flatlock stitching in key areas
  • Radio/ipod pocket for storage
  • Double layered rear panel, providing increased structure and durability
  • Fabric injection gripper, ensuring low irritation cuffs that stay in place in all conditions
  • Additional leg length option
  • Available with silicon gripper panels and standard lycra rear support panel option (non-carbon option - £99.00 )


Our Elite garments are designed specifically for Professional Elite Riders – they are a tighter fit than our regular products. If you are interested in these products please contact our sales team to discuss. You can also order sample of these items for comparison.


For those cyclist seeking the highest level of quality European lycra, and not so fussed about big design, for an additional £10.00 you can upgrade to our fully pre-dyed Apex Premium Bib Short. The pre-dyed lycra has a higher elasticity and better compression for an even better fit. The bib shorts are all-black or all-Navy but grippers and rear panel are still customisable.
