New for 2021, the Foundation Jersey is our new “high end entry level” jersey. Adhering to the same meticulous philosophy used on our higher price point jerseys, the Foundation pairs fine gauge Italian milled recycled polyester with a subdued aesthetic, a slightly more relaxed fit and careful planning around finishings and details to create our most value-conscious option to date. Light weight, incredibly soft and high wicking, the Foundation meets the demands of Velocio quality and performance.
Fabric: 100% Recycled Polyester
Made in: Albania
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.
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:

I like the fit well made
I ended up returning this jersey because I made the mistake of ordering the Signature Jersey to compare and was blown away at the details on the latter. That being said, the Foundation jersey may be the single best value out there. It totally trumps jerseys from other brands that cost nearly twice as much. The fit is a clean ‘club’ fit, the fabric is stretchy and breathable and the build quality is very, very good. If you’re at all budget conscious when looking for a new kit and don't want something a bit more compressive, look no further.
I have wanted to try Velocio apparel for some time. When the Foundation jersey was offered, I thought it would be a good way to check out the company and their products. I was not expecting to be as impressed as I was when I first put my hands on this jersey. It is less than half the price of some of their other jerseys, so I thought something had to be different. But the fabric is amazing, soft, lightweight but feels sturdy. The attention to detail is more than expected for a jersey in this price range, love the zipper garages. I have been wearing it on the trainer, I live in the northeast and am a weather wimp, so sweaty indoor sessions were my testing routes. But the jersey has held up very well to those heavy sweat sessions. Washes great, hasn’t held any odors. I loved it enough that I ordered another one. As good as the jersey is, what blew me away was the customer service. Quick responses to emails and questions about sizing and shipping. Patrick and Tayler were great help in getting me the jerseys I wanted in the size that worked for me. I am a bigger rider and it was nice to get a jersey that looked great and fit well. Turnaround is quick, shipping is free over $100 (?) and returns were easy. And the biodegradable packaging is a great thing for a company committed to the outdoors. The bags the jerseys come in do make great veggie bags at the grocery store! I now own three Velocio jerseys and I can’t wait to wear them out on the road. I think that makes me a convert!
If it was possible to high-five someone through a computer screen, you better believe Tayler & I would be winding up right now to deliver you the most enthusiastic high-fives you've ever received! - Patrick, Velocio Customer Support
