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.
With our complete range of FLY products, from summer weight bib shorts to mid-winter bib tights, we've got you covered no matter the weather. You can also pair any bib short with our Knee and Leg warmer options to extend their range.
Designed as our all-day bib short created from the softest, most luxurious fabric we could source. Minimal seams and high density knit compression fabric provide unmatched comfort and support for long days in the saddle.
Our go-to bib short for any ride. The Signature strikes the perfect balance of compression/support and breathability to be the most versatile bib short we make. Excels at any duration of ride through the broadest temperature range.
Feather-weight and incredibly breathable, the Ultralight is designed for the hottest days. Made from coldblack treated Schoeller ultralight lycra, and our lightest (yet super supportive) chamois, making them roughly 25% lighter than the Signature.
Perfect for the cold weather months - fleece lined, with wind blocking panels and water repellent treatment. Pair with Winter Leg Warmers for even more versatility.
Velocio fit is designed for comfort and performance. Starting with a form-fit silhouette, we've developed our women's-specific patterns from the ground up to compliment a wide range of body types and riding styles. All of our apparel is tailored for on-bike fit to ensure optimal muscle support and range of motion while riding. You may find certain aspects of our garments to seem "off" while standing, yet once you start pedaling these points disappear.
Velocio bibs and shorts are made from highly compressive performance fabric for excellent support through an athletic fit. They will feel small when you first put them on and will often require washing and a few rides for them to "break in." We strongly believe in the benefits of compression - both in its performance benefits, as well as in its long-distance comfort - and we've designed all of our bibs with this in mind.
Should you want a more relaxed fit, we recommend ordering a size up. Find your fit through our sizing tables below.
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.

These bib shorts literally changed my perception of cycling clothing. I always thought discomfort was part of the game... A few years ago I was shopping for an extra pair of bibs to take on a 3 day ride in Northern California, I was warily convinced to try the Fly Bibs by a guy at Mike's Bikes in San Rafael (thank you). I thought the zipper would be annoying (it's not) and the front chest panel hot (it's not) After the first day/100 miles, I went back to the hotel and hand washed them so I could wear them the next day, after day two/100miles I did the same; at the end of day three/100miles, I was smitten. I have not bought anything except Velocio bibs since then.
My daughter loved it.
I love these zip fly bib shorts, and I will buy them again. I tried many kinds of bib shorts that allow a woman to use the bathroom, and these are the best. For some reason, however, the fabric on the blue shorts seemed thinner than the fabric on the black shorts.
The Signature Fly Bib Short is as nice as the Signature Bib Short without the Fly feature. The fit is great, as expected. It was easy to use the Fly feature - easy to zip and unzip. My only concern is the completely zipped state feels as if the zipper is not completely at the top and threatens to unzip. A clasp at the top might not be feasible, since it's often difficult to clasp and unclasp a tiny metal hook. Perhaps a button at the top would help make it feel like it will stay zipped. Will see if there is any issue with continued use.
The zippered option combined with the high quality fabric, long lasting tight fit and superior chamois means this is my favorite bib short EVER!
