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.
Velocio fit is designed for comfort and performance. Starting with a form-fit silhouette, we've developed our men's-specific patterns from the ground up to compliment a wide range of body types and riding styles. All of our apparel is tailored for on-bike fit to ensure optimal muscle support and range of motion while riding. You may find certain aspects of our garments to seem "off" while standing, yet once you start pedaling these points disappear.
Velocio bibs and shorts are made from highly compressive performance fabric for excellent support through an athletic fit. They will feel small when you first put them on and will often require washing and a few rides for them to "break in." We strongly believe in the benefits of compression - both in its performance benefits, as well as in its long-distance comfort - and we've designed all of our bibs with this in mind.
Should you want a more relaxed fit, we recommend ordering a size up. Find your fit through our sizing tables below.
Chest - Start by placing a measuring tape around the largest part of your chest. The tape should be flat but not too snug.
Waist - Your natural waist lies between your bottom ribs and hip bones, close to the navel. To measure, breathe deeply, relax your stomach and lie the tape measure flat around your waist, allowing for a ¼ inch of slack.
Hip - Measured around the widest point of your hips.
Model measurements - Shown wearing size M.

Great jersey - loving it. This is my new goto jersey for 10-14 degrees C. I am 1m84, 71 kg, long torso, and Medium is a good tight fit. Sleeves and back could have been 1-2 cm longer but it works today and I expect it will stretch a little with use.
The craftsmanship is superb. The materials are top notch and feel good against the skin. The styling and design are well thought out and appealing. I very much wanted to love this jersey. The length was a little too long for me, however. Standing upright and tugging the hem downward brought it half way over my rear end. I'm 5'9"+, 160 lbs, and I purchased the medium - my typical size for kit designed in the States. When I put my repair wallet in the center back pocket, though, it sagged over the hem and lay low on the back. If you have cycling kit that has an aero fit, it's nice to have your cargo sit a little higher on the back and the hem not so low. Otherwise, it's an outstanding garment. If you have a long(er) trunk and/or are taller than me, the medium is probably going to fit well.
I love this Jersey! It’s warm, it breathes on hard efforts, totally worth it!!
Bought this and the softshell vest and wore them in a 31 degree 2 hour ride and I couldn’t be happier. When I put them on for the first time it felt like I was wearing my favorite hoodie. Actually was to hot because I shoes to wear them with a heavyweight thermal baselayer. So you no longer need a jackets and this is the most comfortable jersey.
