We took the same great fit and sought where we could make these shorts more affordable without compromising quality. The result is a short made from a lightweight, recycled fabric offering balanced compression and a unique opaque finish. We used the same leg gripper and trims as found on the Signature Bib Short but incorporated a simpler high-density chamois for excellent support in a slightly thinner form - ideal for shorter stints in the saddle.  A premium at a not-so-premium price, the Foundation offers a platform for a better riding experience.

    • 78% Recycled nylon fabric with Extra LifeLycra: balanced compression & breathability, comfort and longevity
    • High Gauge for excellent recovery and second skin fit
    • 5-Panel design: anatomically cut, compressive and supportive to enhance performance
    • Foundation chamois, modeled after our Signature chamois and developed with Elastic Interface, provides excellent mid-distance comfort & support
  • Fabric: 78% Recycled Polyamide / 22% 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.

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.

    solid short for a short ride

    I'm 5'10", 175 lbs and got the large, which is what I fit into for Velocio's bibs, too. Love these shorts for a <=1 hour ride or for indoor on the Peloton. More than an hour and I'll go for the Signature bibs, which feel like they have more cushion for your bum. I tried on Rapha and Ornot bibs when I was first getting into cycling and like the Velocios the best for fit and material.

    Great Shorts Except for The Waistband

    Fit is great. I’m 5 ft. 8 in. 145 lbs and went with a small, which is perfect. Materials seem high quality, except the elastic around the waistband has already started to deteriorate after less than a month of use. Other than that, they are a solid choice for the price point.

    Will never buy another brand

    Let me just start but saying - if you’re looking for the “one” when it comes to cycling shorts, this is it. Just the right amount of padding and a perfect fit - and - the most durable cycling short I’ve ever seen. I took a serious fall one of my first rides wearing these and after sliding on the upper leg and tumbling to a stop, these shorts didn’t show so much as a single frayed strand. Velocio really nailed this one.
