With its stylish aesthetic overall looks, APTUS offers a great performance solution across all sports. The girls specific range, created in close consultation with female PE staff and students’ contours with the body during activity, creating flattering silhouettes.

The female leggings have been a breath of fresh air to schools along with the training top that has a hidden cord in the seams to allow the top to be adjusted in length for the more body conscious.
