It grew from our original bib short and our commitment to never sacrifice performance, to design derivative products or to make compromises in the name of ease or profit. The CONCEPT Bib Short is the evolution of our now much-beloved bib shorts, a race-ready design aimed at the highest levels of performance. This is what a pro rider would wear if they could buy their own bibs. With a new chamois developed exclusively for the CONCEPT bib shorts using several techniques, this pad is designed to “float” as its totally integrated into the patterning of the short, meaning fewer seams and chafe points, and a more fluid pedaling motion.

Additionally this new design means the chamois stays in place while you pedal, conforming to your body and matching your every move. It also means that our FlyFree technology was added to make pee breaks easy, even on the days you aren’t driving a break or smashing a QOM. From the outside, it's the cleanest and most streamlined bib short available on the market today and sets a new standard for what's possible for high performance cycling apparel.

Finally, adding to the proprietary pad, we employed new straps, leg grippers and an aero construction mixing fabrics with complimentary compression for the ultimate performing bib short. The result is more than a pinnacle product, it’s a concept: there is a better way.


    • Two fabrics carefully positioned to maximize breathability and balance compression.
    • Minimal seams and laser cut ventilation
    • Microfiber leg gripper and aerated bib straps
    • Proprietary invisible chamois design provides unmatched performance and friction-free comfort
    • New race-fit patterning provides our most articulated fit
    • Large team-inspired reflective logos
    • FlyFree: the latest generation of our pee-break functionality without removing jersey, helmet or glasses. No more zipper, no compromises.
  • Composition: 70% Polyamide / 30% 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.

    My absolute favorite bibs

    Every time I plan to do a hard ride, a hot ride, a long ride, or any ride where I want to feel fast I find myself reaching for these bibs. I love the chamois design and the compression. My go-to bibs

    The BEST - my new go-to bibs especially for long rides

    Initially I was unsure about how tight these seemed to get on, but after one wash the fabric softened up as I was told, and I took them out for a spin. 5 hrs later I was in love, they felt amazing and are now my absolute favorite bibs. If they seem too small at first, give them a wash & a chance on a long ride. Your legs will thank you! I'm 5'6", 130 lbs and a size S fit like a glove even though I was previously convinced I was a M.

    supportive without heaviness

    The padding is a big deal for the sit bones and the material holds me in yet does not feel heavy in ****** hot Georgia summer rides. I have been wearing with the radiator mesh jersey and also one of the concept jerseys and could not be more comfortable throughout the rides. It is really nice to look forward to getting kitted up especially when getting back into riding and struggling to get into shape. I was wavering between the Luxe bib and the Concept bib and wasn't sure I was sold on what the difference was supposed to be - I am super happy with the bib and even MORE pleased with the awesome Velocio customer service as embodied by Tayler. I got some sizes wrong and the new size was shipped to me so fast; I had questions, Tayler provided answers that convinced and she was right. I also agree that if you are between sizes that you should go for the smaller size. That was why I got the sizes wrong - wrangling the old leggies into these doesn't have the sausage-casing effect because the technical fabric works for the compression and yet gives where it is supposed to while riding. When I got the mediums I felt comfortable off the bike, but on the longer ride I was thinking oh, I could probably size down. Totally sold.
