  • 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?
    In terms of fit, the main difference is the amount of compression each bib short offers. CONCEPT is our most compressive, followed by LUXE. 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. The Ultralight bibs are very high on the compression ratings as well - the new stretch woven fabric adds great compression and breathability without adding weight. Signature is what we'd call medium compression - still higher than most other brands, but not as compressive as the three mentioned above. And then Foundation is slightly less compressive than Signature.

    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.

Sizing Guide

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:

  • Find your weight along the top of the table.
  • Look down the column to find your appropriate size.
  • Each size has a height range based on weight.
  • If you find that you are on the upper or lower end of height and weight for a given size, the garment will have more or less compression respectively.
  • Use the Dimensions Details chart to further dial in your fit.

    Men’s ultralight bib shorts

    Best bibs I’ve ever owned by far. Very comfortable and superb chamois. Highly recommended. And velo it is the only company where the sizing they give and recommend is actually correct.

    Your *** will thank you

    I contacted Velocio specifically for a recommendation on bib shorts that could mind my nether regions for a very long endurance mtb race recently. Although I had focused in on several other styles, the customer service rep instead pointed me to these Ultralight bibs bc they would not only work better under my Velocio trail shorts, but the materials used also provide greater durability for mountain biking. All that said, I decided to give them a try and couldn’t have been happier. During my race, which took me 19hours, I never had any issues “down there” on a race course that’s been described as a “hatchet to your ***.” Well Velocio, kudos, bc while everything else hurt, these have become my favorite bibs. Comfort was equally luxurious for a 62 mile gravel race last weekend too, so long story short, just buy them.

    Legit Competition for Assos

    I've long considered Assos to be the best of the best in terms of bib shorts (I know many other riders might have other preferences...but for me, Assos never disappoints in quality or function). I ride 5-6 days a week, so I need a handful of quality bibs to get me through season after season. Now, as much as I may love Assos, my wallet can't afford an exclusively Assos wardrobe. Enter Velocio and the Ultralight Bib Short. I have a few Velocio jerseys and base layers, but had not tried their bib shorts until now...and I was IMPRESSED. They rival Assos in feel and function...to the point that they are actually my preferred bibs at the moment - GASP! Let's see how they hold up over time, but so far so good. Lastly, I've used these bibs on rides anywhere from 30 to 110 mile rides and in temperatures ranging from 55 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and they've been amazing comfortable throughout.

    Outstanding bibs!

    The tldr version of this bib is that they’re great and you should buy a pair. Now for the meat and potatoes: 1) chamois. The design of the cup holds the family jewels superbly and might I add discretely? The pad is dense and firm, but not bulky. It perfectly molds to the contours of your body and is absolutely locked in. It’s frankly unlike anything I’ve ridden in before— less luxurious chamois’ are thin & compressible foam, or ultra dense with little flexibility. This pad is flexible enough around the wings to be amazingly ergonomic yet has the right density and heft down the center and under the sitbones that it feels substantial and protective. Out of the saddle it moves and flows with the body naturally and is the only pad I can truly say disappears under me. 2) fabric. At first I was hesitant with the weight of the fabric because these are the “ultralight” bibs and didn’t fit my expectations. I live in the American south where it’s hot and humid so it matters a lot to me. Most brands choose a near transparent fabric that makes you feel like you’re *****, but velocio went a wholly different direction. They spec a thick and tough fabric that feels luxurious and substantial. It does not feel like traditional smooth Lycra— at first it almost feels scratchy and starchy but after the first wash becomes soft. After wearing these shorts exclusively for about 45 hours/3 weeks of riding, I am thoroughly pleased. The fabric is fully opaque, compressive in a way that hugs my body better than any other shorts I’ve ever owned, and keeps the chamois absolutely locked in. It breathes superbly and when a breeze hits me in the shade I can actively feel the evaporation of sweat off the shorts cooling me down. The shorts show absolutely no sign of wearing yet and I trust that this hardy, yet highly technical fabric will last me a long while. The construction quality of these shorts is remarkable. Especially when compared to ultralight bibs of other brands. 3) straps. Once again velocio has taken a different approach. The straps are thick, luxurious, and stretchy. They provide a comfortable, progressive pull on the shorts keeping them locked in. I absolutely love the fact that they cross on the back independently of one another. This means the shorts are not in contact with a large part of the back, so the only layer against the skin is the jersey or the base layer. This allows easier moisture transfer off the back and is a big part why these shorts have allowed me to remain cool here in North Carolina. I am 6’0, 168lbs, with a 32” waist. The Mediums fit me perfectly. These were eye-wateringly expensive for me to buy the first time, but have since bought a second pair and can’t envision myself in other shorts moving forward. Chapeau and merci, Velocio!
