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.

They yellow over time.
They work well in the SW sunshine.
I have worn these arm screens several times so far and I absolutely love them. I'm naturally quite pale and burn easily, so I wear these to protect my skin from the sun. As an added bonus, these are great to avoid any weird tan lines for my upcoming wedding this year. I got to see just how well these work this weekend when we were out biking for a few hours in direct sun. My arms were covered with the arm screens, but my hands didn't have any coverage/sun protection since I had forgotten my gloves at home. When I took off the arm screen I saw my arms were untouched, but my hands had gotten tanned (thankfully enough time to let this one fade out before the wedding, ha ha). Definitive proof they do their job (and if you're like me and forget your gloves, make sure to slop some sunscreen over the top of your hands at least)! Even in the hot weather I don't feel that these make me too warm -- they in fact have a nice cooling affect. I wear a size medium in the Velocio jerseys and a size small for the sleeves fits perfect for me with no issues of them falling down or being too tight (female, 5'4", 135 lbs)
Great fit. Bought a small. I’m 5’5 and 122.
I bought the biggest size and could not wear them because the band around the upper arm was way too tight. I weigh 185lbs, so while not tiny, not huge. I wish there was one size bigger or more flex in the arm bands that hold them in place. I gave them to my wife and she really likes them. They are thin and cool well. I would definitely buy a few more pairs if there was an XL.
