The Apex is both a place and a moment in time. It’s the one spot in a corner where lean angle, speed, traction and inertia are all perfectly balanced. Mastering it results in the fastest and most efficient way to ride. Racers spend their lives trying to master this one spot, lap after lap.

The Apex Jacket was inspired by this drive. The design, style, technology, features and construction are integrated in perfect ratios. The result: The highest-performing sport touring jacket ever offered.

Providing best-in-class aggressive/sport style, unbeatable weather protection, impressive abrasion resistance and complete impact coverage, the Apex Jacket has all the corners covered.

    I would buy it again.

    I have put 3k miles on with this jacket, it's comfortable and lives up to the name on the chest. I have been over mt passes (spring time) when it's 40* when I hit the road and 80* on my way home. The vents are great. water protection is spot on too.

    Great jacke that would be perfect but for the collar

    by

    Love everything about the jacket, almost... After 1500 miles here is what I've learned. The vents are amazing and the airflow really surprised me. The fit is "athletic" which I really like and the stretch Gore-tex is in all the right places. Here's my gripe, and it's not a small one, the collar is horrible. You can't leave it open or it will slap your helmet, and snapped up it binds with my Bell full face and hits my adams apple, not comfortable it seems in any configuration.

    Great! Small but....

    Love this jacket... just came from a 4000 km ride through rain and sun I did not feel a touch of wet! Awesome. Small gripe though. After a while my neck started to get rubbed from the jacket collar. When standing the jacket does not rub on my neck but when seated on the bike the relative stiffness of the jacket pushes it up towards my neck and so I ended up leaving the jacket undone and folding the collar down into the jacket. Problem solved. Might just be me! Otherwise stellar build quality. The venting is spot on and feels like I'm armoured up!

    + Quality, - Fit and snaps

    by

    A big step up in quality and protection, worthy of it's price point. Weather adaptation (hot, cold, wet) all work great. I would disagree with another claim that this is an "athletic" fit. The Italian brands are, this fits me more roomy than I'd like unless I'm layering up a lot.



    <br>My real complaint (like others) is the collar. Hot or cold I really prefer some neck protection from rocks and bugs, and this one just slumps too low. The snap on my collar is already getting weak after just one year. Snaps just don't belong on a motorcycle jacket... where you might have GLOVES on.



    <br>Bottom line: I feel very protected from both weather and impact. I just don't dig the fat-guy fit and a couple details.

    Awesome jacket from super critical person

    by

    I completely agree with the review that this jacket only has one flaw, the neck collar under the chin. In the next generation it would be great to cut a U-shape into it and add a few layers of the black leather that wraps the back continues to the front (rightfully we will wear through the first layer pretty quick, plus three layers will be softer).



    <br>This jacket is a little longer in the torso and sleeve which is exactly what i was looking for. The zippered pocket on the left sleeve is AWESOME! I keep my garage card reader badge in it. This is a high quality jacket from the armor to the fabrics to the stitching and quality. I am a KLIM fan for life. Worth the extra money with one super minor improvement item
