The Signature Bib is the cornerstone of our bib short collection. Featuring refined sizing to improve fit across a broader range and an upgraded 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.

  • 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.

Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chaffing.

    Quality Bibs

    These are my initial impression Materials seem like good quality. The chamois is nice. It has more of a clothlike feel than some other brands. I noticed the straps digging into my shoulders when standing up straight but on the bike they are not noticeable at all. I think this is purposeful because the chamois is held in place nicely while riding. Elastic bands on the thigh are nice in that are not too snug. I feel the sizing chart is misleading. I am 5'10"/150" with 30" waist. The medium fits very well. I typically wear medium bibs in most other brands (Giordana, Pearl Izumi) and the fit here is similar. So from that standpoint the fit is "true to size" based on how most bibs fit me. However, based on the Velocio chart I should be a small. I tried the small and it was way too small. I could barely get it over my legs and the straps were too short for my height. I wish companies would list a height range for bibs in addition to waist/hips ranges.

    Hi Scott. Thank you so much for the review. We are actualy working on revamping our size chart which will include a height and weight range for each size. Thanks for the recommendation! Generally speaking, the materials used in our bib shorts are designed to be very compressive with the intention of keeping the chamois in-place to limit rubbing or chafing. So it is possible to wear multiple sizes because of the elastic nature of the material. However, a more form fit benefits the rider for the reasons explained. But personal preference also is super important! Thanks again!
