The Apex Series represents the pinnacle of high performance cycling kit from Ciovita. 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.
Our new updated Contego Gilet 2.0 is perfect for elite athletes riding in a wide range of conditions.
The Contego Gilet is designed to keep your core warm with a quilted front panel featuring ComfortTemp air fibre, which offers superior insulation in extreme conditions. The quilted panels now feature a narrower design for more efficient insulation.
The side panels are made from 4-way stretch Vitatex, which aids flexibility and features a UPF50+ protection, while the back features state of the art 3D polymide/elastane.
The pro fit cut means this is a tight fitting, high performance gilet which hugs the body and offers ultimate comfort when up out of the saddle, riders who want a looser fit are advised to buy a size up.
The Contego Gilet also features a hidden back pockets for secure storage, as well as one waterproof zipper pocket for storing valuables. Visibility is also key to the design with reflective details placed in key strategic areas around the garment.
A 2-way YKK Front Zipper gives you more temperature control and access to your jersey pockets, while the broad elastic hem with silicon grippers ensures the gilet stays in place as you change position on the bike. Each Gilet features our proprietary Anti-Bounce System to ensure pocket stability when heavily laden.
The beauty of the cycling gilet is its versatility, which makes it a suitable kit choice for a wide range of conditions. It can be combined with short sleeve jerseys, long sleeve jerseys, arm warmers or windproof jackets to custom build kit for almost any riding conditions.
Perfect match for the conditions
This is a wonderful peoduct. Super warm without being bulky. Pockets are excellent. Quality fit and feel. The garment is on the smaller side though so buy a size up. The rust colour is beautiful, more orande than brown and get lots of compliments.
I recently did the 36One MTB Challenge where I used my Apex Contego Gilet 2.0.
I have really tested the two way zipper's durability as I had to zip open on the climbs and zip close on the descents, luckily the zip passed with flying colors.
The coldest temperature we got was about 2C and I did not even notice this as the gilet kept me warm even when it was drenched with sweat as I noticed at the halfway mark!
Really easy to put on whilst riding and it even fitted over my Camelbak Chase Vest.
The material used is really of high quality.
The gilet is a super tight racing fit so the advice to size up for a looser fit is spot on.
