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:
Our sizing chart represents the majority of riders we’ve worked with first hand in our clothing. If your size falls outside of the specified chart, please contact customer service for insights or take advantage of our Signature Guarantee which allows for testing and return within 30 days if your riding experience, including fit, isn’t improved.

This has become my go to hoodie, and I plan to order a second one. My commute is often cold, windy and rainy. New England. A hoodie and vest (if you can find a better vest than the latest Recon vest I want to hear) is my commuting kit. So I have worn hoodies like this for years on a daily basis. I was curious to see how Velocio would stack up. Historically, I preferred 100% merino garments. The Recon Hoodie definitely changed my appreciation of polyester. This blend is super cozy, feels more durable through repeated washes, and retains its shape better through use and wash. For me, the sizing made perfect sense. My large fits just like I want. Typically, I purchase size Large. This is true with Velocio, although I do sometimes go w/ Medium (e.g. Recon vest) and sometimes with XL because at 195cm, I need the length. I wore the recon vest + hoodie combo alpine skiing on bluebird days last year.
Great hoodie - I use it to put on after a cool morning ride and to ride to town. Looks good and is very comfortable on/off the bike.
I'm not sure what Velocio was thinking with this one. I'm 5'8" and 135 lbs, and size XS with everything. Ordered an XS for this hoodie, and I'm swimming in it. The materials and comfort might be top notch, but I'd never know, as this thing is gigantic.
this is a high quality article - glad I decided to order. I hesitated on size. I am normally a medium, but size guide steered me to small, which fits well. I am a medium in Velocio cycling jerseys. I am 5’8”, 145 lbs.
Jacket is very well built and comfortable, but appears to run a bit larger than other Velocio gear.
