The advantages of skinsuit use by pro riders are multiple. The fitted single garment concept brings improved heat management and brings aero-dynamic advantages, by design. Focusing particularly on helping riders perform in hot conditions, our Apex Summer Race suits a range of disciplines - from city centre criteriums to mountain time trials, summer road races to racing indoors at the velodrome.
Specific fabric advantages come via our CS Tech Mesh™ lycra which, with millions of tiny air holes across its surface, provides exceptional airflow and cooling.
