It packs down tight enough to fit in the smallest jersey pocket but punches way above its weight against cool rides and unexpected chills. Updated for 2019 with refinements to fit through the torso and improved flexibility for wearing over a jersey with loaded pockets.We made the Ultralight Jacket out of windproof Japanese milled 20gsm Pertex Quantum combined with Veil Mesh panels for stretch and breathability for the most versatile and packable layer of wind protection available. DWR treated to shed the passing shower and cut with a close fit to minimize flapping.


    • Pertex Quantum mini-ripstop nylon - 20gsm
    • Veil mesh side panels for tailored fit and breathability
    • DWR treatment to shed water and grime
    • Reflective logos and trim details
    • Two-way YKK Vislon zipper
    • Lycra tape waist hem with silicone stripe keep the jacket in place
  • Fabric: 90% Polyamide / 10% Elastane

  • 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.

Women's Fit & Sizing

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.

Our jersey fit is a slim form-fit cut designed to provide light compression and muscle support, exceptional comfort and a streamlined look. For 2019, we’ve made some adjustments to our sizing to allow for more flexibility in fit across a broader range of body types and preferences. Our larger sizes have be re-proportioned while maintaining a tailored look.


 

Women's sizing guide

Taking your 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.

    Best windbreaker ever!

    I live this jacket! It is so lightweight and easy to stash in a pocket. The vents are perfect. No more sweating when all you need is a light jacket. It’s true to size. No flapping in the wind. The color is more of a red-orange which is very visible. I have worn this on a downhill in the mountains, as a layer in the wind, and even under a warmer jacket for a little extra wind break. I look forward to wearing it at me next race in a week!

    Perfect ultralight jacket

    Love this jacket. From the color to the fit to the weightlessness, it perfectly fits my needs.

    Great Wind Jacket

    Very lightweight and the mesh running the length of the arms and sides means it vents really well. I didn't think I'd care one way or the other about the two-way zipper, but it's great! Also, the jacket uses a quality zipper and the guard is wide enough you don't zip up fabric of your jacket.

    Great transition-weather layer

    Really happy with the jacket overall. It give you a bit of warmth and a bit of rain resistance while remaining very packable if you don't need it. The ventilation is also very nice. I find there's a little extra fabric in the shoulders/upper arms, which is a bit annoying and flappy at higher speeds. The cut on the body works very well.
