  • 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.

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 further dial in your fit.

Still unsure or need help? No problem! Email us at service@velocio.cc. Remember that every piece is backed by our Signature Guarantee.

    Awesome layer

    The Recon Vest is great for on or off bike adventures. It’s beautifully made and has a trim fit as you would expect for bike apparel. The soft inner collar is a nice touch with one exception. The zipper gets caught on the inner flap at the collar. It’s no big deal, you just need to carefully zip up.

    Perfect Vest for Spring

    I wear it with a thermal long sleeve, in temps from 38-50(f). I don’t like to be cold on the bike, and it does the job. Love how it looks, and will almost miss it come summer. Highly recommend. Actually destroyed my first vest on a crash, And Velocio was kind of enough to give me a cash discount on the second one. Great company. I’m 6’1, 210, and I like my XL.

    Great piece of kit on & off bike

    I’ve been hauling the vest on the bike, casually off the bike & bike commuting in SF “winter”. It’s insulating, windproof & fashionable. Exactly what I wanted in a vest at this price point. Anxious to see some more color ways in the future-I will be buying another as the assortment grows. Quality has been stellar after a month of very frequent use. 6’4”, 170lbs (slim build & takes a Medium in almost all tops on/off bike)
