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.
All styles are intended to be form-fitting, across the entire size range. Find a flexible tape measure and take your own body measurements.
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.

Bought this as a gift for my husband, originally got the red, turns out my husband likes green. Customer service quick and efficient getting it swapped out. Very happy.
An excellent addition to my fall and winter kit. Paired with a merino base layer and arm warmers this is a perfect combo in the mid 40’s. I have added a jacket when colder and it still is good for our colder Northern California mornings.
More about fit below, but first... I used this for the first time today on my first fat bike ride. I wore the RECON jersey over a merino t-shirt and the ZERO bib tights. The layering was perfect. I never got too hot while riding, and I was able to stand around in the parking lot on and off for as much as 10 minutes before I got cold. Conditions were high 20's, not too windy, and New England winter sun (so, not a ton). I took a fall which gave me some road rash on my forearm and hip, but both bib and jersey look good-as-new. The gear isn't cheap, but the fabrics and design are top-notch, and I expect it is going to be a good investment. As for fit, I am 5'11", and generally buy medium clothes. Scroll down to the fit model and notice he is wearing size-medium summer clothes. The RECON jersey is cut EXACTLY the same. If you see the slightly looser cut in the picture at the top of the page, that would be a LARGE jersey on the same fit model wearing a medium below. Fortunately, when I exchanged the medium RECON that I then exchanged for a large, the large was not too big, just right for wearing solo or a merino T underneath. Velocio's exchange system is also about as easy as it can be without having a store where you can try things on before placing an order. Kudos on that.
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.
