The CONCEPT Merino pairs our most articulated and refined pattern with ultra fine merino wool for an extremely versatile jersey. Excellent as a standalone for cooler days, or as the ultimate mid- or base- beneath one of our jackets when the weather turns. Light weight, yet thermo regulating, the CONCEPT Merino will become a go-to for the Spring season. New for 2021 is the Navy color.
Fabric: 75% Merino Wool / 18% Polyamide / 7% 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.
How does the fit of your different jersey models compare?
Updated for 2020, our Signature jersey features more compression and support compared to previous years, but is less compressive fit compared to other models. Our SE is more compressive than the Signature in the sleeves, but will feel similar otherwise. The Ultralight is our most compressive and supportive fit. The Radiator Mesh jersey is similar to our Ultralight, but less compressive through the torso/stomach area given the Radiator fabric. The CONCEPT jersey is our most aerodynamic and race-fit jersey, and offers slightly less compression than the Ultralight. And the RECON Micromodal is our least compressive, fitting like a slim-cut tee shirt. All of our jerseys are intended to be a tight/tailored fit to minimize extra material. This has several benefits, including muscle support, minimal chafing, and improved breathability and wicking.
What is the length and width of your jerseys?
Our jersey sizing is unique in that it is graded differently for every size. What this means is that we design each element of the jersey for every size. So every jersey will have slightly different measurements depending on the model and its intended fit. However, our jersey models are intended to fit the same in each size. That does vary though, given different fabrics have a different feel and elasticity, so the measurements aren't the same for each jersey we make. We highly recommend following our sizing chart or shopping at one of our retailers to find your preferred size and fit.
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:

The merino blend is soft and stretchy. The jersey works in a wide range of temperatures - I will probably wear this up to about 80F. I'm 5'9", 160-165 lbs, and I bought the M; probably could have fit in the S too.
This jersey plugs that hole when you have big temperature swings from early morning to day or afternoon to early evening. You can take a light vest for insurance but this jersey lets you feel the air but it keeps you warm. Perfect fit. I have both the navy and the black for Northern California Spring and Fall climate. Everything Velocio does is well thought out and of such high quality. I am a fan.
Second Concept wool jersey I've bought, so Velocio must be doing something right. I have similar jerseys by Cafe, and Giordana, but what I like about the Concept is the overall cut, the longer short sleeves, and the use of top and bottom zipper garages for the zipper pulls. Smart detail IMO. I also like the high wool content, 75%, and black is always a good choice of color if you're only going to offer one color. Bravo!
Forget the Lycra jerseys; merino is a different level of comfort. Fits just as well as any race fit type jersey, but feels like a nice soft blanket. Breathes incredible well, does not hold much sweat, but also functions better on the cooler days to hold in a bit more body heat. Starting to become my go-to. 6’/165lbs, medium fits great.
5'10 and 220 lb male. This wool jersey has kept me so blissfully warm. I sweat like crazy but even on the cool 40 degrees days, with the sun shining but the breeze blowing and my jersey sopping wet, I'm all cozy as if I'm bundled up to a fire place! Love this jersey!
