New colorways added for 2020.
The LUXE Bib Short with the latest iteration of our pee-break friendly design - FLYfree - is made for all-day rides. It lives up to its name as the most luxurious long-ride bib short made. High Gauge LUXE fabric is super supple yet highly compressive. Minimal seams and innovative design minimizes chafe points and irritation allowing you to focus on your ride. We designed the LUXE to be a true all-day performance bib short and while every ride isn’t an unrelenting adventure, we’ve found that we reach for it daily for its supreme fit and comfort.
Fabric: 80% Polyamide / 20% Elastane
Made in: Italy
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. To learn more about our bib range, please check out our Bib 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:

Look & feel amazing, but the low dip in back did not work for my backside-- If you're built like J-Lo or K. Kardash... you may want to skip these.
Thanks for the honest review. The FlyFree technology which allows the bib shorts to be pulled down, is cut in such a way to make nature breaks much easier. Please let us know if you need assistance helping find something that works for you! firstname.lastname@example.org - Tim
Love, love, love!!! This is the best bib I've ever worn so far and I have been wearing signature bibs from Velocio religiously for the last 4 years. My new go to is definitely Luxe. It stays put, has phenomenal padding, support, compression and comfort in general. It looks amazing on too!! No complaints whatsoever here, just want more of these!
These continue to be my favorite bib and each year the design gets better and better. The fabric is so soft and comfortable and yet supportive enough to knock out a lot of hard miles. This is the most comfortable chamois I've used on mixed terrain. These are truly an all day bib with some serious endurance in the quality. I usually get about 8,000 miles out of one pair. They're worth what you pay for them. There is a little bit of a learning curve to taking bathroom breaks with these, but they come off and go back on easier than any other cycling apparel I've used. My only criticism is the same as any bib, I'm 5'2" so these fall about 2" above my knee and it would be great if they eventually made a petite line of these.
I can't emphasize enough that you must get on the bike before you make up your mind about these. I found them true to size per their chart (I took a M — 5'4" 138 lbs, curvy, not the lowest of body fat), the compression is great and they do stretch out a bit as they describe so don't worry if they feel too tight at first. I'm ***** so strap placement is an issue for me; the bib felt a bit weird on the sides when I was just standing but the fit is really meant for your posture on the bike and they are extremely comfortable while riding — the kind of comfortable that you forget about them. Love the chamois, that's why I was looking for a new pair of bibs. The fabric has has a very soft and substantial feel and on me, the shorts are on the longer side but I like that. Leg grippers do not budge while riding. I've had them for about two weeks and based on my experience they were well worth the money and I would buy Velocio kit again.
Yes, the price of these bibs will make your draw drop BUT as someone who has gone through an assortment of different branded and sized bibs and shorts the purchase is very much worth it. I've only worn these bibs for a handful of rides so far but I love the feel and the fit of these bibs and the chamois is the most comfortable I've ridden in (for those ladies who have issues with chamois that are too bulky and put pressure on all the wrong places -- look no further!) It was the first time I had a ride where I wasn't thinking about how my shorts/bibs were fitting and having to adjust them. I'm not quite able to use the "no-fly" feature, which is a bit of a bummer since that is one of the main reasons I splurged on these. I have a longer torso so I'm not sure if that's a factor but I can't quite get them to pull down. I hear the former version of these had a zipper - maybe it's time to bring that style back? I'd definitely buy another pair despite that fact, but may size down next time. For reference I'm 5'4", 130 lbs, 40" hip, 27" waist - I bought a medium but feel like a size small might offer some more compression/be a slightly better fit. The medium does feel plenty comfortable, though. The straps do feel a little tight/pull down on the shoulders, even when leaning forward on the bike. It's not too bad, though, but it is something to consider if you have issues with your shoulders (again this may be a "short legs/long-torso" factor (this is why I can't wear one-piece swimsuits...curses), so those that have longer legs/shorter torso may have no problem at all. Maybe Velocio can offer an option for us longer torso-ed folk?) I would recommend sticking to the darker colors for these bibs. I ordered the charcoal gray and it shows that lovely crotch sweat, so if that's an issue/something you'd rather the world not see, I'd stick with the black (not sure how the other colors hold up to sweat showing). A quick note on the return/exchange process. My first pair of bibs had a small defect and I sent them back to exchange for a new pair. I will say that Velocio made this extremely easy and they shipped out the exchange pair right away. In my experience the usual return process for most places is that the new item isn't shipped until the defective/returned pair is received by the company, which means a bit of a wait time to receive your exchange. This made the exchange process SO easy and I was able to happily hop on my bike with my new bibs much sooner. Overall I give these 4 stars - I did deduct a star because the no-fly feature is a no-go for me :( But otherwise these are amazing bibs that will make any gal happy as can be.
