The Apex Series is Ciovita’s premier range, and with its novel Ceramic treatment represents the pinnacle of high performance cycling kit from the South African firm. This exclusive range employs the latest in cycling technology combined with hundreds of hours of testing and refinement to produce kit that pushes the boundaries of what is possible, even when you have smashed yours.


The key feature in the Apex Scudo range is the ceramic shield print that has been applied to key panels on the bib and the jersey. Scudo is Latin for shield, and speaks to the protective properties this high-tech coating. In the ancient world they had a saying “return with your shield, or upon it.”

The treatment makes the fabric more durable and reduces friction in high risk areas in the case of falls at high speed, making your chances of getting back up and keeping riding after a high-speed tumble higher.

The ceramic shields are on the highest-risk areas of your kit – the places Ciovita’s hyper-active test crew falls on the most!
