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.
When selecting your size, start with your jersey size, then determine the length based on where you fit within the range.

I love these leg warmers so much - light, comfortable (they feel really nice against the skin), but plenty warm - I use these in the 45-65ish range. Colder than that, and I wear bib tights, warmer than that, and I'm in shorts. :-)
Great piece so far. I’d say these are true to size but not compressive. I’m 6’ 2”, 175 pounds (thin build) and I ordered the medium. When worn over the top of my shorts I found they slid down above the knees. I tucked the shorts over the top and that worked good with the shorts leg grippers. Some may like that if they don’t like the feel of leg grippers.
First and only pair of leg warmers I've ever bought but glad that I probably won't need to buy any more any time soon. These work great, don't fall down and keep me warm even when it's cold enough I'd expect to feel a chill (it's Feb in San Francisco, so when I say cold, I don't mean *that* cold...) Would recommend!
I ordered a size medium as per the Velocio website instructions for sizing. The overall quality and detail of the leg warmers is pretty spot on. The only problem is the leg warmers slip down your leg after about 10 miles. The lack of an elastic band at the thigh in my opinion is the reason. The leg warmers are made of a very compressive material and at first I thought an elastic band would not be necessary. I was wrong. My inaugural ride with the warmers was a 12+ hour ride covering the C and O towpath. How frustrating it was to have to pull up my leg warmers every 30 minutes...argghhh! For reference, I'm 5'7", 157lbs, I wear a size medium Velocio bib. The fit of the bibs feels pretty good. I would say though they are slightly tighter than other size medium bibs I've worn. Very comfortable but definitely tighter than other bibs I've worn. Again as per Velocio's sizing guide I ordered a size medium leg warmer. Perhaps a size small might have been better.
The material feel good but they do not stay in place because of the absence of gripper I love my Velocio jersey and short but not the leg warmer
