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.
Our jersey fit is a slim form-fit cut designed to provide light compression and muscle support, exceptional comfort and a streamlined look. For 2019, we’ve made some adjustments to our sizing to allow for more flexibility in fit across a broader range of body types and preferences. Our larger sizes have be re-proportioned while maintaining a tailored look.
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.

Love it! A bit more coverage and Warmth than the Rapha Thermals I've been wearing. Really like the high collar.
I paired this with the velocio wind vest and both are fantastic. Would highly recommend.
Living in mountainous northern Nevada, this is my fourth piece from Velocio and fills a need in the 47-59 degree range as a long sleeve jersey in highly visible Fire Red. The fabric is like all other items from Velocio, top notch, great hand, supple and launders very well. As a long sleeve jersey, I am impressed with this piece with a few exceptions. First, the interior fabric is smooth, lacking any micro-fleece or other option, which causes claminess/coolness after climbing then descending. The fabric has good weight/warmth and decent wind resistance plus breathability, but the smooth interior of the fabric causes feelings of sweat evaporation and cold more than I expected. Second, the collar is a bit too long/tall that it folds over onto itself when looking down. Third, Velocio's sizing is challenging and very much race fit. It reminds of the Italian brand which rhymes with Fast Nelly. However, one of this brand's great strengths are its people and Customer Support makes it painless to find the best compromise in terms of size. Velocio's products are among the best made I have ever experienced - fabric, zippers, design details, stitching and occasionally highly visible colors - and have made me a fan. This jersey comes close to perfection and if the interior fabric surface and sizing were less challenging I would give it 5 stars.
Great under the Wind Vest on cooler days and just right under the Signature Soft-shell on a cold/windy ride (happily just back from)! Just the right amount of compression and breathability without dumping too much heat. A great piece with legitimate multi-season versatility. Will appreciate this one over the long haul. Thanks Velocio!
Excellent! Pair this with a light or mid-weight base layer and you will be golden! Tack on a light vest and you are basically windproof! The subtle reflective strip is a perfect touch that'll keep you safe without going full Fred! Money well spent!
