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.
We started with a new pad. Not a sourced pad, nor a pad that we 3D printed, but an entirely new construction for a cycling pad combining high density foam, anti-vibration inserts and a pre-shaped anatomically moulded contour with exceptional breathability. From there we wrapped this bib short in premium compression fabrics and a unique aero construction. The result is a new concept in Bib Short design elevating comfort and performance.
The new chamois developed exclusively for the CONCEPT bib shorts uses several techniques to create something totally new. Designed to "float", the chamois is totally integrated into the patterning of the short, meaning fewer seams and chafe points, and a more fluid pedaling motion.
This new design means the chamois stays in place while you pedal, conforming to your body and matching your every move. From the outside, it's the cleanest and most streamlined bib short available on the market today and sets a new standard for what's possible for high performance cycling apparel.
All styles are intended to be form-fitting, across the entire size range. Find a flexible tape measure and take your own body measurements.
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 jersey / M bib short.

Very comfortable bib. The chamois felt awkward upon first feel, but once on the bike it provided superior comfort and function.
I wish I had 5 pairs because it's all I would wear. From training rides to 6+hr races, these never cause any discomfort. I wrecked going almost 30mph in these bibs and slid a long ways on the concrete and the fabric thinned in a few spots but no holes whatsoever. These bibs are expensive but a great investment and peace of mind knowing that Velocio has a great repair policy. (5'10", 170lb purchased a M)
I was a professional cyclist for 13 years. I raced all over the globe. That equates to A LOT of saddle time. Let's just say that I have endured A LOT of saddle time in unfriendly shorts. The Concept shorts from Velocio have given me a new found love of saddle time. They are the best short and chamois combo I have ridden to date. They are a little tight when you put them on, but once you are riding....MAGIC!
I love everything about these bibs: fit, aerodynamics, chamois…the lot.
