Updated for 2020 with all-new stretch woven compression fabric.

Our most minimal weight bib short, aimed at all-day riding in the hottest conditions. Redesigned for 2020 with an all-new high performance 140gsm stretch woven fabric for the lightest possible weight and higher compression than the previous generation, and on par with our Signature bib short, to keep you comfortable and supported even on the longest rides when it's hot and humid. (Roughly 30% lighter than our Signature Bib Short). The innovative fabric provides enhanced breathability and wicking/drying as well as a deep black high opacity finish. A true summer-weight bib short that offers up an antidote to the heated seats of summer riding. Pair it with our Radiator Mesh Jersey for the ultimate in temperature regulation.

  • 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.

  • What is the inseam length of your bib shorts?
    As a general rule of thumb, all of our bib shorts are designed to be as close to the same length as possible. Different fabrics have different fits and elasticity so this is not always an exact science. As a baseline, however, our Women's bib shorts are 22cm (8.7") from the center crotch to the leg gripper in size M, with +/- 1.5cm (0.6") per size grading. Our Men's bib shorts are 25.5cm (10") in size M, with +/- 1.5cm (0.6") per size grading.

    What is the main fit difference between bib short models?
    All of our bib shorts are designed to fit consistently across the size range, meaning if you wear as size L in our Signature Bib Shorts, you will also likely find the size L to be the best fit in our other bib shorts. In terms of fit, the main difference is the amount of compression each bib short offers. LUXE is our most compressive, followed by CONCEPT. We hear often that these two look quite small and take a bit of effort to get on - trust us when we say it's effort well spent. Signature is what we'd call medium compression - still higher than most other brands, but not as compressive as the two mentioned above. Foundation is very similar to Signature. And Ultralight is the least compressive, primarily due to the ultra light-weight fabric.

    My bibs feel super tight when I try them on for the first time! Help?!
    All of our bibs are designed for optimal fit on the bike. When trying-on or wearing your bibs for the first time, try them on the bike (or mimicking on the bike posture) to feel an ideal approximation of fit. Different parts of the bibs will fit and feel more comfortable in the riding position vs. standing upright. Also, all of our bib shorts will “break-in” after a few rides and washes, conforming to the shape of the rider. Hence, we offer our 30-Day Signature Guarantee for a complete test. The best bibs don’t feel perfect standing in front of a mirror - the design makes pedaling better.

    Are the chamois the same in all your bib shorts?
    We’ve developed several chamois for our line that are proprietary to Velocio. These have been developed over years of testing and feedback to be the most comfortable and supportive available for any distance or type of riding. Our Signature chamois has been refined since our launch and the latest iteration is a dual-density pad, incorporating an anti-vibration super high density layer with a supportive high density layer to create all-day comfort and support. It’s available in anatomic specific versions in our LUXE, Signature, and Ultralight bib shorts. The CONCEPT bib shorts have a proprietary fully-integrated chamois. This innovative design is comprised of a multi-density padding that is attached to the short by a highly elastic liner, creating a floating pad that conforms to every movement with minimal bulk and allows for a uniquely free pedaling motion. Lastly, the Foundation bib short uses a pared back version of our Signature pad with a single high-density foam and recycled top fabric, creating a great mid-distance pad with medium support and slimmer form factor.

Sizing Guide

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:

  • Find your weight along the top of the table.
  • Look down the column to find your appropriate size.
  • Each size has a height range based on weight.
  • If you find that you are on the upper or lower end of height and weight for a given size, the garment will have more or less compression respectively.
  • Use the Dimensions Details chart to futher dial in your fit.

    Great Bib Shorts

    I want to get on my soap box for a minute. I am a 61 year old woman and I have ridden my whole life. I still don’t get taken seriously at bike shops and people still try to fit me on bikes that are too small. I hear all the time that if you have problems with a saddle then you should have a bike fit. People will take your money for a bike fit, but tell you that you shouldn’t spend money on a saddle. Or shorts. Well guess what? I have problems with all saddles now that I am 61 and my body is changing. I can fit myself at this point better than anyone. And guess what else works for me? GREAT shorts. Invest the money in some really good shorts: you will have them longer than a bike fitter and you can wear them on any saddle. These Velocio ultralight bib shorts are WONDERFUL. No pinching. The chamois is exactly the right density and doesn’t feel like a diaper. The straps stretch. The back pulls down for nature breaks. The length is long so they don’t ride up. Yes they are $229. Pay it.

    Jury is Out

    After two wearing’s with handwashing and air drying the beautiful sheer mesh panel on the front of the bib has the Lycra fraying around the edges near where it is sewn to the shorts straps. Super pleased that the company immediately sent me a replacement pair but I’m afraid the same thing may happen to them as well.

    Great fabric and stitching although get one size up

    The fabric is very comfortable although I’m usually an xs in all my bibbs but the leg part especially where the elastic band is fits too small around my leg so if you have muscular quads you might need to go a size up

    Dog days of summer just got cooler

    Before wearing these bibs on a 105F day, I didn't realize what a difference the ultralight fabric would have on my long ride comfort. Seriously, the wicking and airflow of this fabric is amazing --< I save these bibs for special summer days when I know I am going to be out for a long ride in the heat of the day!
