Updated for 2021 with new generation FlyFree bib upper eliminates the front mesh panel resulting in our lightest bib short ever. Featuring high performance 140gsm stretch woven fabric for the lightest possible weight and higher compression than the previous generation, and on par with our Signature bib short, to keep you comfortable and supported even on the longest rides when it's hot and humid. (Roughly 30% lighter than our Signature Bib Short). The innovative fabric provides enhanced breathability and wicking/drying as well as a deep black high opacity finish. A true summer-weight bib short that offers up an antidote to the heated seats of summer riding. 


    • Ultra-High Gauge Stretch Woven compression fabric: only 140 grams per meter, yet totally opaque
    • Deep black high opacity finish
    • 5-Panel design: anatomically cut, supportive, with medium compression
    • Seamless Microfiber bib straps & leg gripper
    • Reflective logos for added visibility
    • Proprietary Signature Chamois developed with Cytech [EIT]
  • Fabric: 78% Polyamide / 22% Elastane
    Made in: Italy

  • 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.

  • What is the inseam length of your bib shorts?
    As a general rule of thumb, all of our bib shorts are designed to be as close to the same length as possible. Different fabrics have different fits and elasticity so this is not always an exact science. As a baseline, however, our Women's bib shorts are 22cm (8.7") from the center crotch to the leg gripper in size M, with +/- 1.5cm (0.6") per size grading. Our Men's bib shorts are 25.5cm (10") in size M, with +/- 1.5cm (0.6") per size grading.

    What is the main fit difference between bib short models?
    All of our bib shorts are designed to fit consistently across the size range, meaning if you wear as size L in our Signature Bib Shorts, you will also likely find the size L to be the best fit in our other bib shorts. In terms of fit, the main difference is the amount of compression each bib short offers. LUXE is our most compressive, followed by CONCEPT. We hear often that these two look quite small and take a bit of effort to get on - trust us when we say it's effort well spent. Signature is what we'd call medium compression - still higher than most other brands, but not as compressive as the two mentioned above. Foundation is very similar to Signature. And Ultralight is the least compressive, primarily due to the ultra light-weight fabric.

    My bibs feel super tight when I try them on for the first time! Help?!
    All of our bibs are designed for optimal fit on the bike. When trying-on or wearing your bibs for the first time, try them on the bike (or mimicking on the bike posture) to feel an ideal approximation of fit. Different parts of the bibs will fit and feel more comfortable in the riding position vs. standing upright. Also, all of our bib shorts will “break-in” after a few rides and washes, conforming to the shape of the rider. Hence, we offer our 30-Day Signature Guarantee for a complete test. The best bibs don’t feel perfect standing in front of a mirror - the design makes pedaling better.

    Are the chamois the same in all your bib shorts?
    We’ve developed several chamois for our line that are proprietary to Velocio. These have been developed over years of testing and feedback to be the most comfortable and supportive available for any distance or type of riding. Our Signature chamois has been refined since our launch and the latest iteration is a dual-density pad, incorporating an anti-vibration super high density layer with a supportive high density layer to create all-day comfort and support. It’s available in anatomic specific versions in our LUXE, Signature, and Ultralight bib shorts. The CONCEPT bib shorts have a proprietary fully-integrated chamois. This innovative design is comprised of a multi-density padding that is attached to the short by a highly elastic liner, creating a floating pad that conforms to every movement with minimal bulk and allows for a uniquely free pedaling motion. Lastly, the Foundation bib short uses a pared back version of our Signature pad with a single high-density foam and recycled top fabric, creating a great mid-distance pad with medium support and slimmer form factor.

Sizing Guide

Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chafing. Due to the compressive nature of the fabrics, you will be able to fit into more than one size. Please use the charts below to help determine your optimum size:

  • Find your weight along the top of the table.
  • Look down the column to find your appropriate size.
  • Each size has a height range based on weight.
  • If you find that you are on the upper or lower end of height and weight for a given size, the garment will have more or less compression respectively.
  • Use the Dimensions Details chart to futher dial in your fit.

    Love these bib shorts!

    The straps are smooth, silky and stay in place. I was initially concerned about the leg gripper as they felt very thick and heavy. I am happy to report that once on you don’t notice the feel of the gripper at all and yes the shorts stay put. The chamois is amazing! This could just be me but I have a little trouble using the fly free feature. It may take more uses before they pull down without feeling like they are going to tear or cutting into my leg crease. I am 5’4 and weigh 128 lbs and ordered a small. I have since ordered a medium as well and they pull down easier but now I have extra material at the leg crease while riding luckily this has not bothered me so far (longest ride in these shorts has been 2 hours). Finally, yes the side panels are a bit sheer but this doesn’t bother me. Can’t wait to see how they handle a Texas summer.

    Thanks for reaching out! I would indeed agree that the Small size would indeed be the correct fit on paper, as these are intended to be very compressive, but if you're more comfortable in a Medium that's A-OK with us :) Regarding any additional assistance on the FlyFree feature, here's a helpful FAQ article: https://support.velocio.cc/hc/en-us/articles/1500005898922-How-do-the-Women-s-FlyFree-bibs-work- Thanks again!

    Love the new straps

    I have liked the ultralight bibs for a while now, but always hated the mesh bib front. It never laid right against my chest, so I always cut it out when I bought a pair. The new straps are fantastic, making these shorts nearly perfect now! Same great chamois and comfortable fit.

    Ultralight Bib Shorts - Perfect!

    I've never been a fan of bibs, but these have changed my mind. I love them and wear them every chance I get. I'll be ordering another pair.

    The side panels are see through

    Like the title says, the side panels are see through which is pretty annoying and embarrassing if you’ve got underwear on. Underwear is not an option in these at all. Also the shoulder straps look stretched out from putting the bibs on just twice.

    Thanks for reaching out and apologies that these bibs did not work out for you! We would note that no bibs are designed to work with underwear, but rather the bibs are designed to be worn directly against the skin. Our Ultralight & Concept bibs are designed for very warm weather and the leg panels are indeed an incredibly lightweight fabric, which provides enhanced breathability and wicking/drying as well as a deep black high opacity finish. Regarding the straps, per our FAQ page, all of our bib shorts will “break-in” after a few rides and washes, conforming to the shape of the rider. Hence, we offer our 30-Day Signature Guarantee for a complete test. Ultimately our goal is to ensure you're happy with the product, so should these need to be returned you can initiate a return with your original order number (on your packing slip and in transaction emails) and the shipping zip code. You will be prompted through the process and issued a return label for your items: https://velocio-us.loopreturns.com/ Thanks again! - Velocio Customer Support

    Very comfortable

    After a few wears and washes and finally taking them outside, they’re my favorite pair.
