The Signature Bib is the cornerstone of our bib short collection. For 2019, we’ve made small refinements to the sizing to improve fit across a broader range. We’ve also upgraded the chamois with a new proprietary chamois, a Velocio designed pad made in collaboration with Elastic Interface. The Signature Bib Short has always offered balanced compression, excellent breathability and all-day comfort. It now offers 100% recycled Lycra fabric in the black colorway (more colors to be released.) Moreover, it still exists as the reason and origin for our Signature Gurarantee: try this bib for 30 days and return it for a full refund if it isn’t better than any other bib you’ve ridden (or really, for any other reason.) We’re building a better way with our apparel. The Signature Bib Short is the manifestation of that path forward more than any other piece in our collection.

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.
Should you want a more relaxed fit, we recommend ordering a size up. Find your fit through our sizing tables below.
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.

So far I'm very satisfied. These are high quality bibs!
Nice bibs, but not my favorite pair. Bib straps are a bit uncomfortable and the chamois is a bit narrow and has padding that is lower density than I’m used to. Still in rotation, but for rides on the shorter side.
Bought these primarily for a longer event of 6+ hours that other bibs I had just wouldn’t work for. I was comfortable during the whole day, no pressure points. Good fit, good compression.
I struggle to call things "the best," but these shorts are thus far my favorite I've used. The chamois is much thinner than expected, which is very pleasant, as it conforms to the body better than a thicker pad does. Also, being a bit on the chubby side, the thinner pad cuts down on the total bulk in the moving area, which is also appreciated. Wearing these bibs for two straight days on an overnight bikepacking trip lead to zero issues. I can't wait to get more of these in my closet!
Just bought them. I’ve only used them once on a 35 mile ride. But I am impressed. Better than Rapha, PAS and others. I look forward to buying now
