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.

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.

This makes my 5th pair of Velocio bib shorts, my 2nd pair of Luxe. They are truly fabulous, the fabric is silky smooth, compression is perfection. Nothing compares, holds a candle to Luxe bib shorts!
First of all, these bibs feel as expensive as they should, and the fly free design is absolutely incredible. I have them in black. I also love that the front mesh panel means I can go without a bra!!! I'm 5'5" with shorter legs, and they almost reach my knees. I am around 160-170lbs and carry most of my weight in my hips, butt, and thighs, and I wear a large, which is what I wear in other bib brands. They're right when they say there's a break in period and that they fit better when actually riding. It took me a couple minutes to get myself into them the first few times! That said, they are about 3 inches too long. I even had my 5'11" leggy friend try them on, and she also felt they were too long. The inseam is about 11.5 inches when measured flat, and it seems like they measure even longer when worn. Every time I put them on, I wish they were shorter. I almost returned my first pair after the trial period because of this, but I ultimately decided the fly free functionality makes them worth it. I have had a pair in black for several months, and recently ordered the green because I was wearing the black so often and wanted something less serious looking. The thigh gripper elastic is still black on the green bibs, and it didn't work for me. At least on my body, it makes them look a bit cheap. The color blocking effect makes the length even more obvious, and ultimately, I don't want to be bummed when putting on a pair of bibs that cost this much, so I returned them. (Heck yeah free shipping and returns, though.) I don't regret buying the black ones, but I won't get another pair until there's an option for a short length.
Hi Caroline. Thank you so much for your purchase of the LUXE bib shorts and sorry to hear that you we're not completely satisfied with them. We'd be happy to chat with you more to try and get you in the right-sized product that fits and functions to your expectations. Feel free to email email@example.com and we'd be happy to help! - Tim
These shorts have become my favorites, even surpassing my beloved bibs from a brand that starts with A and ends with S.. perfect fit and the chamois isn’t too thick, no seams that dig into me, no riding up or bunching up. I’ve even utilized the “fly free” aspect which is a plus, for sure. These bibs are like finding the perfect saddle, once they are on you’re only thinking of your ride, not your bibs. Fit like a second skin very flattering and comfortable. A cat 1 bibshort!
Extremely comfortable bibs. Even with “no fly” easy to get in and out, if you know what I mean! Love the dark olive color. Got the triangles jersey in dark olive to go with. 5’2”,118 lbs. Got the small. Great fit.
The bib shorts are very comfortable and the color is great...adds some variety to the typical black. These bibs are just a tiny bit longer than I prefer. This is also my first pair without the fly and I actually prefer the fly for easier bathroom breaks on long rides:)
