New colorways added for 2020.
Made for all-day rides, the LUXE Bib Short 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: 62% Polyamide / 38% 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.
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:

This was my first Velocio purchase, won't be my last. I'm always hesitant to invest this level of $ into any new company/product when I've got no problems with other high end offerings (Le Col, Assos, Pactimo), but from first couple of 3+ hour rides in these I will enthusiastically be reaching for these ahead of the rest. I wouldn't abuse them on indoor/trainer rides, but whenever I need that little something extra special for a ride, these would be my choice. The sizing chart is a bit unusual--with most other brands I'm stretching medium or loose in large, but according to Velocio I'm small (6'0", 145#). Nevertheless, I went medium and they fit perfectly. Fit is "compressive". If your body jiggles a bit as you move around, then that translates to "tight" and it might be best to consider a looser "club fit". If you're a bit more fit/less jiggly, then this translates to "gives your thighs a comforting hug in appreciation of all the work they're doing". These felt great when I first put them on, and only got better with each mile during the ride. I rated these as "runs small" only because I'm smack in the middle height-wise, 30# lighter than medium specs, but medium fits me perfectly. The straps crossing on the back took a little thought to slip into but feels fine. For first ride I deliberately avoided any base layer to try out the straps, zero rubbing, perfectly comfortable. No slipping or movement during the ride and I was up and down, soft pedaling and hammering, bouncing about. Chamois is obviously highly personal and subjective. My minimum performance expectation is that if you're applying cream, it's probably because you've got bad bibs. 3+ hours on a hot and humid ride and I felt no discomfort, though was starting to notice the effects a bit. I'm sure they'd even be fine for a century, but if I were to imagine the perfect Velocio bibs it would probably be the compressive fit/material of these Luxe paired with the higher end chamois of the Concept line. Ovfeall, though, wow! Excellent product.
Awesome, so soft.
These have been my first-choice bibs since purchase. They’re super comfortable, especially the shoulder straps compared to other companies’ offerings. Chamois is medium-profile (neither thick nor thin), and performs well for that profile. My personal preference is for a thicker chamois, but on these bibs I don’t mind. My only real complaint is the olive green color shows sweat pretty distinctly, and I sweat a lot. Mostly it shows in the hip creases and crotch area, which isn’t a big deal while riding but is noticeable off the bike. That said, I’m still reaching for these bibs before all others.
Super comfy “all day” bibs used mostly for gravel rides. A little hard to get the braces to lay flat in the back. Love the olive color. Top quality material and fit.
Hi There! I wanted to follow up on the review you left for the Men's LUXE bib shorts. You gave the product 1/5 starts but it sounds like the product exceeded your expectations and you are happy with it. I just wanted to make sure you are satisfied with it or if you need any assistance. Thanks! - Tim
Really liked these in the NE spring, but hot and humid days make these shorts feel like a wetsuit. Don't deal with sweat well at all well.
Hi Jonathan. Thanks so much for the feedback and review. We'd definitely recommend either the Ultralight Bib Shorts or the CONCEPT bib shorts for hot summer days. The fabric on both of those is much lighter and will help keep you cooler. We do offer a 30-Day Signature Guarantee where you can try any product for 30 days and return if you are not satisfied if you want to give either of them a shot. Thanks again! - Tim
