Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.
Velocio fit is designed for comfort and performance. Starting with a form-fit silhouette, we've developed our men's-specific patterns from the ground up to compliment a wide range of body types and riding styles. All of our apparel is tailored for on-bike fit to ensure optimal muscle support and range of motion while riding. You may find certain aspects of our garments to seem "off" while standing, yet once you start pedaling these points disappear.
Velocio bibs and shorts are made from highly compressive performance fabric for excellent support through an athletic fit. They will feel small when you first put them on and will often require washing and a few rides for them to "break in." We strongly believe in the benefits of compression - both in its performance benefits, as well as in its long-distance comfort - and we've designed all of our bibs with this in mind.
Should you want a more relaxed fit, we recommend ordering a size up. Find your fit through our sizing tables below.
Chest - Start by placing a measuring tape around the largest part of your chest. The tape should be flat but not too snug.
Waist - Your natural waist lies between your bottom ribs and hip bones, close to the navel. To measure, breathe deeply, relax your stomach and lie the tape measure flat around your waist, allowing for a ¼ inch of slack.
Hip - Measured around the widest point of your hips.
Model measurements - Shown wearing size M.

Just the right weight for riding with the signature jacket in the low to mid 30s. The highlight for me is the front chest pocket. Great place to store your iPhone for easy access.
I bought this vest as a supplement to my wardrobe for a small temperature segment but after owning it for a month I’ve started using it a ton. It’s perfect as the final touch for the base layer, short sleeve jersey and arm warmers days of the lower 50s and paired with a recon jersey and the high 30s. I love the front pocket. It’s perfect for holding my credit card or ID. And the high collar comes right to the bottom of my jaw which is ideal and keeps me super warm
Fits great. 5' 7" and around 153 lbs (read swimmer/triathlete build) and the small fits great. I love vest with pockets and I also love wearing this underneath jackets as an extra layer of warmth in the cold months. Its great for arm warmer weather or when you do not have enough wind proof base layers to wear underneath your jerseys. The front pocket is great for keys and other quick access items after/before a ride because reaching into the back pocket to search for something small like keys or credit cards can be a hassle (especially with gloves on)
I have only had one cycling vest prior to this one, and I never loved it. After a few years of vest-free cycling, I decided to give the ES Vest a try, and it has been great for shoulder-season here in New England. It is a great weight, fits well and has a nice combination of pockets. Highly recommended.
